it was amazing
bookshelves: 2016

Unbelievable world building and dueling narration make this a can't miss. Incarceron is a centuries-old self-contained, idealized prison that has become a Lord of the Flies-esque battle for survival for its inmates. I wish the differences between the Civicry and the other groups of inmates had been explained better. The immensity of Incarceron is clear but vaguely mapped. I would have liked a bit more concrete description of the "lands" within Incarceron. Perhaps that will come in the sequel.

Lots of cliffhangers to keep readers turning pages. Claudia is a strong-willed character who is rightly suspicious of her father, The Warden. Finn knows he doesn't belong with the Winglord and the Comitatus but isn't sure where to go instead. I enjoyed this reversal of gender roles. Fisher does a good job of weaving the two worlds together and leaves myriad possibilities of exploration and resolution for the sequel.
