I recently read INCARCERON by Catherine Fisher. I’d heard good things about it and read it, kind of unsure what it was going to be about. I knew it had to do with a prison and a futuristic world where people are living in a simulation of a historical era like Victorian England. So I was definitely intrigued.
But then the opening chapter confused me for a bit, feeling more adult than YA. But I’m glad I kept reading because events and characters developed fast and fascinating. I’m being careful not to say much since there are twists and surprises in this book unlike any other I’ve read. It’s in the genre of HUNGER GAMES and I was totally wowed by this book.
Toward the end, I couldn’t stop reading and felt breathless waiting for the climax. And I was NOT disappointed. I was so impressed that I immediately went online and searched out a British version of #2 SAPPHIQUE and ordered it since I don’t want to wait till December to find out what happens next.
