Incarceron is the name for a prison, a living, breathing, evolving being that holds Finn and his "brothers" hostage. Most of them know nothing of the outside world. Finn knows there is an Outside because he has flashbacks of stars, and birthday cake. The key to Incarceron is kept by a king whose daughter Claudia is betrothed to marry a prince in whom she has absolutely no interest. She finds a way to communicate with those trapped within Incarceron, and the puzzle pieces begin to fall into place.

This novel is a combination of young adult, dystopia, steampunk and fantasy. I would definitely recommend it to those who enjoy these genres. It was easy to get swept into the story and I devoured it rather quickly (no small feat for someone who has so much going on). It was definitely the escape I was seeking and I plan to read the second book, Sapphique very soon.

Wordsmith You got me intrigued Ange! I needs not be intrigued at the moment! I've got so many books going on I don't even know now the what of the what or what the hells going on cuz I lost touch of the what of which plot goes with what book which doesn't bode well for those like us who like to remember such stuff. Elementary stuff in what would be a time for those, who like us, have no problem at all keeping up with all the what's of the what's and all plot points in between.

message 2: by Ange (new) - added it

Ange Don't worry -- I had it on my TBR shelf for years before I got to it. I was going to donate it to the library here now that I've finished it but if you think you might want it, I could always donate it to you so it can sit on your shelf for a while before you get around to reading it.

Wordsmith You'd do that for moi? That's sweet, and I never refuse offerings (Especially of books!) when the intent is well meant. As yours is. Thank you! (Right back atcha! If I have a book, hard to get, you want to read it, whatever...say the will be, hmm, like MAGICK!)
