In Sapphique, the sequel to Incarceron, by Catherine Fisher, Finn has escaped to the Outside, leaving his friends in Incarceron. But as the situation worsens inside and out of the prison, one is left wondering what it truly means to escape, and what Sapphique really represents. A must read if you have read Incarceron.

Sapphique is an adequate, but unsatisfying sequel in the end to Incarceron. Some parts of this world become clearer as we run desperately along, but there are new jumps in the story explained neither by what we know of the magic nor by what remains (as far as we know) of the technology. Ultimately the reader has an interesting time on the way, but feels cheated at the end as the loose ends are not woven together but loosely and hurriedly tied in a granny knot. This is, however, the end of the 2 book series.

Some people may not have understood or enjoyed this book for all the twists and turns but that it what incarceron was, a big brain fu**. Sapphique at least brought it all to an end i only found it unfortunate that the worlds remained separate, the book was long and i felt that it could have been managed....in any case that horrible queen got what was coming to her, but it did leave many thing sun answered and un explained...i liked it enough though

The events throughout were definitely suspenseful and surprising. The ending could have been more complete, but overall it was excellent.

Good enough, but the most developed and dynamic character seems to be Incarceron, strangely ....

Disappointing. I thought this book was going to tie up all of Incarceron's loose ends, but it just left them loose and mangled. I thought Finn (Prince Giles) and Claudia were going to fall in love and have a romantic moment, but no. Only an empty, awkward friendship. I can't imagine what kind of marriage they will have... Keiro and Attia didn't have a romantic moment either, despite the fact that Keiro wound up liking Attia near the end. The story gets confusing towards the middle, LOTS of details, and I don't like all the Point Of View switching. As for the Years of Rage, um what happened? What happened to the moon that altered it? And Jared? He combined minds with Sapphique and the prison? Was Sapphique only a legend and a vision of Escape? And how is a prison supposed to be a paradise? In the end, I enjoyed the book, but it only made me say HUH?

I enjoyed this book more than the first one. It dove right back into where it left off, so it was easier to get into right off the bat. =]

They moved through a nightmare of dissolving beauty, of fragmented hangings and paintings lost under grime and mold. In places chandeliers of white candles had fallen; the crystal droplets lay like tears in the broken wax.
