Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:
Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells, but also metal forests, dilapidated cities, and vast wilderness. Finn, a 17-year-old prisoner, has no memorie of his childhood and is sure that he came from Outside Incarceron. Very few prisoners believe that there is an Outside, however, which makes escapes seem impossible.
nd then Finn finds a crystal key that lets him communicate with a girlnamed Claudia. She claims to live outside -She is tha daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, and is doomed to an arranged marriage. Finn is determined to escape the prison, and Claudia thinks she can help him. But they don't realize that there is more to Incarceron than meets the eye. Escape will take their greatest courage and more than they know.
I do not know why but the moment I heard about this book I was hooked and wanting to read it. This is such a unique and different concept than anything I have been reading. Not to judge a book by its cover but this one looks dark, and also intriguing. I think that Incarceron will provide a much needed break from the ordinary. I cannot wait to read it!
