Book of the Moment: Sapphique by Catherine Fisher
Sapphique is the sequel to highly praised Incarceron by fantasy writer, Catherine Fisher.
Finn is finally out of the living prison, Incarceron and he expected the Realm to be a paradise where you are free to do whatever. But the Outside world is another prison all together. He must obey the harsh Protocol where everyone lives in the past and without the advanced technology. Finn and Claudia have been at the palace for two months now and Claudia is surprised that she somewhat missed her cold father, how is now lost in the depths of Incarceron. Finn must live with daily guilt that he left his oath-brother, Keiro and friend Attia in Incarceron and is driving himself mad trying to figure out a way to get them out. Like he promised. Now that Claudia has claimed Finn to be the lost heir of the Realm, the Queen is trying to plot her way on getting rid of Finn...along with Claudia...
When another claimant appears saying he is the lost heir, Claudia and Finn began to doubt themselves. What if all they had gone through to get Finn to Escpae Incarceron was all a big mistake?
Meanwhile, Attia and Keiro are still in the depths of Incarceron, trying to find the magic Glove, that the legendary Sapphique used to Escape the prison. But they go through some battles and fight the prison because...well...Incarceron wants it too. Can a prison escape itself? Find out in this thrilling sequel to Incarceron!
I was excited to get my hands of Sapphique becuase I was so curious as to what would happen to all these characters. I have to say the book is a little confusing to read at times but in the end, everything makes sense. Obviously, your going to have to read Incarceron first, otherwise Sapphique will make zero sense.
I really like how Finn and Claudia's story got wrapped up and the ending was sick! I wasn't expecting it at all! It a very fantasy/ thriller type book so you will not be able to put down this book! It's a very fun read and I hear there is going to be a Incarceron movie. There are rumors that Taylor Lautner might even be cast as Finn...hmmmmm...
Hope they are true because these books are kick ass and would make even more kick ass movies!
Read these books!
I give it a 4 out of 5 stars!
