Book Review: Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

Title: Sapphique
Author: Catherine Fisher
Series: Incarceron (Book #2)
Publisher: Dial Books
Year Published: 2010

"Incarceron, the living prison, has lost one of its inmates to the outside world: Finn's escaped, only to find  that Outside is not at all what he expected. used to the technologically advance, if violently harsh, condition of the prison, fin is now forced to obey the rule of Protocol, which require all people to live without technology. To Finn, Outside is just a prison of another kin, especially when Claudia the daughter of the prison's warden  declared Finn the lost heir to the throne. When another claimant emerges, both Finns and Claudia's very lives hang on Finn convincing the Court of something that even he doesn't fully believe.
Meanwhile, Finn's oathbrother Keiro and his friend Attia are still trapped inside Incarceron. They are searching for a magical glove, which legend says Sapphique used to escape to find it, they must battle the prison itself, because Incarceron wants the glove too."

My Rating: 4/5

This is the sequel to the book Incarceron, and in all honesty I don't think it did the first book justice. It was an interesting way to continue, but the characters seemed less complex, and harder to understand at the same time. This could of course be of course because of the way we see so much more of Attia and Kerio still inside the prison. I found it interesting to learn of the other rules that took place on the outside. I think the reason that this book wasn't as good mainly is because Incarceron become the real main character. The setting was really important in this book and so I found it hard to connect.

Thanks for reading,
