9780142418529: Incarceron

Incarceron is a prison unlike any other: Its inmates live not only in cells, but also in metal forests, dilapidated cities, and unbounded wilderness. The prison has been sealed for centuries, and only one man, legend says, has ever escaped.
           
Finn, a seventeen-year-old prisoner, can’t remember his childhood and believes he came from Outside Incarceron. He’s going to escape, even though most inmates don’t believe that Outside even exists. And then Finn finds a crystal key and through it, a girl named Claudia. 
           
Claudia claims to live Outside—her father is the Warden of Incarceron and she’s doomed to an arranged marriage. If she helps Finn escape, she will need his help in return. But they don’t realize that there is more to Incarceron than meets the eye. Escape will take their greatest courage and cost far more than they know. 
           
Because Incarceron is alive.

Review:

'One of this year's most striking fantasy novels' ( Amanda Craig, The Times)

'A far-future thriller combines riveting adventure and masterful world-building with profound undertones. ... Like the finest chocolate, a rich confection of darkness, subtlety and depth, bittersweet and absolutely satisfying.' ( Kirkus)

'a tour de force' ( School Library Journal)

'... imaginatively drawn and vividly described. ... an exciting adventure story.' ( School Librarian)

'... stands out above all others ... It's imaginative scale and gobsmacking finale make it one of the best fantasy novels written for a long time.' ( Times, Amanda Craig)

'a deliciously dark and scary ride.' ( Nicholas Tucker, The Independent)

'one of today's best fantasy writers ... a deliciously dark and scary ride.' ( Independent)

'... imaginative, rich in texture and vividly realised. Catherine Fisher writes with consummate skill and depth of feeling.' ( The Bookseller)

'a smart, complex, engrossing and emotionally involving read.' ( Bookshelves of Doom)

'a deep and sophisticated adventure story' ( Write Away)

'... a riveting book that keeps you turning pages. There are plenty of plot twists, mysteries, excitement, and secrets to hold your attention from the beginning to the very end. Even things that seem obvious may not be as they seem; there's enough ambiguity to keep you guessing.' ( Wands and Worlds)

'This gripping futuristic fantasy has breathless pacing, an intelligent storyline, and superb detail in rendering both of the stagnating environments. ... With some well-timed shocking twists and a killer ending, this is a musthave.' ( Booklist)

'... brilliantly realized ... reader attention never flags through this elegant, gritty, often surprising novel.' ( The Horn Book magazine)

'Complex and inventive, with numerous and rewarding mysteries, this tale is certain to please.' ( Publishers Weekly)

PRAISE FOR THE ORACLE SEQUENCE:

'... a rich, resonant conclusion to the series.'

( Booklist - May 06)

'Vivid, complicated, and thoroughly engrossing, this fast paced adventure keeps readers avidly turning pages until the majestic conclusion.' ( Horn Book Review May/June 06)

... an intoxicating world reminiscent of the Arabian Nights. Highly recommended. ( The Bookseller)

suspense is constantly built ... rattles along at a dizzying pace ... next volume please. ( School Librarian)

A crisp, quick-moving narrative and fully fleshed out characters will keep readers hooked ( Publisher's Weekly)

A powerful and very exciting adventure story. ( School Library Journal)

'... one of the most skilled and original writers currently working in young adult fantasy' ( New Welsh Review)

'Beautifully imagined and realised, this novel of future regression is rich with strong characters, big issues and a compelling plot. It is a barnstorming piece of serious fantasy that doesn't put a foot wrong.' ( The Bookbag)

'Catherine Fisher is an artist with words ... An engrossing, intricate story of an extraordinary journey undertaken by richly imaginative characters' ( Carousel)

'... wholly engaging and rushes along as a breathless and nail-biting pace ... a gripping read that should enthral both young and old fans' ( Buzz)

Oozes a del Toro flick vibe. ( SFX Magazine)
