Praise
"Fisher's dystopic future, in which technology and decay coexist in a dazzling kaleidoscope of images and time periods, is brilliantly realized; the intriguing sentient prison adds an element of mech/steampunk to the narrative texture. Although the pacing is deliberate, reader attention never flags through this elegant, gritty, often surprising novel."
"Like the finest chocolate, a rich confection of darkness, subtlety and depth, bittersweet and absolutely satisfying."
From the Publisher
Annotation Catherine Fisher has created an amazing, complex world where Incarceron, a living prison, not only secretly holds prisoners for generations, but devises hideous torture and intrigue to keep their lives nightmarish. Roving gangs fight each other to survive, and a boy named Finn struggles to survive among them, certain he wasn't born to be in this place. On the outside, the world is equally dangerous, but in more opaque ways. Programmed to be forever the 17th-century, Catherine is the daughter of the Warden who rules over Incarceron, and she's being groomed to rule the Outside. But she knows something is very wrong, and when she gets a hold of a special key, she begins communicating with Finn, and the two hatch an escape plan.
