Description

The only one who escaped . . . And the one who could destroy them all. 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 advanced, if violently harsh, conditions of the prison, Finn is now forced to obey the rules of Protocol, which require all people to live without technology. To Finn, Outside is just a prison of another kind, especially when Claudia, the daughter of the prison's warden, declares Finn the lost heir to the throne. When another claimant emerges, both Finn's 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.

Professional reviews

"Sapphique is a legend--the only inmate to escape Incarceron, a cyber prison vast enough for villages, ice wings, and forests yet tiny as a watch fob. Kim Mai Guest differentiates a wide cast in this plot-twisting sequel. Finn, the uneasy prince; Jared, the Sapient; Rix, the half-mad magician; Keiro, Finn's angry brother; the warden--even Incarceron itself--become become vivid in the listener's imagination. Female leads, such as Claudia, the warden's daughter, and Attia, the ex dog-slave, are portrayed well but with less contrast. Guest skillfully alternates the complicated story lines of the sentient prison, with its shining red eyes, and the Realm. These two narratives--with chain gangs and steel wolves, duels and betrayals--race to a climax that satisfies yet also suggests further mystery. M.C.T. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
