Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

While not as amazing as the first book in this series, Incarceron, this follow-up title picks up right where readers left Finn and Claudia in thier quest to find Sapphique and somehow balance the dark, prison world of Incarceron with the opulent kingdom Outside ruled now by the merciless Queen.  Finn and Claudia continue to try to prove that he is the true heir to the throne, but suddenly an impostor appears, who seems much more suited to life Outside, so much so that even Claudia finds herself wondering.  Inside Incarceron, Finn’s oath brother Keiro and their friend Attia are trying to find Sapphique’s glove, claimed to be magical which will help them escape the prison.  Finn has promised to come back to rescue them, but it’s been months and they are beginning to believe he is enjoying a rich and carefree life outside and has abandoned his old friends.  Lots of fast-paced adventure ensues, but I found myself not being as engaged with this book as I was the first one.

I recommend this title to readers of the first book in the series, Science Fiction fans and dystopia fans.
