Description

A thrilling, high-concept fantasy for fans of Garth Nix and Nancy Farmer. Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells, but also metal forests, dilapidated cities, and vast wilderness. Finn, a seventeen-year-old prisoner, has no memory of his childhood and is sure that he came from Outside Incarceron. Very few prisoners believe that there is an Outside, however, which makes escape seems impossible. And then Finn finds a crystal key that allows him to communicate with a girl named Claudia. She claims to live Outside- she is the daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, and doomed to an arranged marriage. Finn is determined to escape the prison, and Claudia believes she can help him. But they don't realize that there is more to Incarceron than meets the eye. Escape will take their greatest courage and cost more than they know.

Professional reviews

"What sets this dystopian story apart is superb plotting and characters with emotional depth. Narrator Kim Guest delivers the exciting plot with a skilled use of timing, emphasis, and nuance. Incarceron is a prison, originally intended for humane treatment and rehabilitation--until it developed a mind of its own. Centuries later, Claudia, daughter of the warden, dreads marrying the queen's unpleasant son. Further, she thinks she may have found the key to the prison and to the mystery of what has become of the lovely boy to whom she was originally betrothed. Guest delivers a stellar performance, building the tension to a pulse-pounding conclusion. D.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
