Waiting on Wednesday (3)

”Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights the upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.

I reviewed Incarceron awhile ago. While my feelings on that book were kind of mixed, I’m really looking forward to the sequel. If you haven’t read the first book, the summary below contains some spoilers.

Sapphique
by Catherine Fisher
Release: December 28, 2010

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.


What are you waiting for?

    Hmm, this one may be a little to futuristic for my tastes. I admit it has a good premise, though. The cover is really pretty, too ~ lol~

      It actually felt way more like fantasy to me than futuristic sci-fi (well, Incarceron did, that is), but I have no idea if that atmosphere will continue.

  2. I too had mixed emotions over Incarceron. I do have an ARC of Sapphique sitting on my shelf that I hope to get to. The first one left off with quite the cliffhanger!

      The revelations about a certain character at the end of Incarceron left me hungry for more. I hope Sapphique lives up to my hopes for it.

    I haven’t read Incarceron, yet. It’s in my TBR pile. But just love the cover for Sapphique. Here’s my WoW. Congrats on winning NaNoWriMo!!

    • lmsoft says:

      Yeah, I love the covers of both! And thanks, I love doing Nanowrimo, it’s such a wonderful excuse to actually be writing.

  4. I LOVED Incarceron! And I am just *dying* to get a copy of Sapphique, the cover is gorgeous 😀 Great pick!

    I would appreciate if you became a follower on my blog 😉
