Incarceron - a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology - a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber - chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison - a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device - a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn's escape is born ..."I loved the book. It's a crazy, cool, dark world ...it's a great story." -- Taylor Lautner, star of the Twilight movies

Awesome book; I needed to read one like this one. Fisher's style is almost poetic; she is amazing. This story has a 'steam punk' vibe to it, and the characters are very well written. I love the way the scenery is described; you can even smell the places. The universe, the way of life she has created in this one is very interesting.
I'm loving this book and I highly recommend it.
The seller was very nice too, and the book came in impeccable condition, as described.
