Incarceron is a prison unlike any other: Its inmates live not only in cells, but also in metal forests, dilapidated cities, and unbounded wilderness. The prison has been sealed for centuries, and only one man, legend says, has ever escaped.
           
Finn, a seventeen-year-old prisoner, can’t remember his childhood and believes he came from Outside Incarceron. He’s going to escape, even though most inmates don’t believe that Outside even exists. And then Finn finds a crystal key and through it, a girl named Claudia. 
           
Claudia claims to live Outside—her father is the Warden of Incarceron and she’s doomed to an arranged marriage. If she helps Finn escape, she will need his help in return. But they don’t realize that there is more to Incarceron than meets the eye. Escape will take their greatest courage and cost far more than they know.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 sophie | 2/1/2014

    " I tried liking this book, I really did. The idea of a steampunk/regency era was cool at first, but I had a hard time trying to understand the whole premise of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vienna | 1/26/2014

    " This is an awesome book...especially if u like enchanted fairy/mythical creature type books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Juliana Weja | 1/23/2014

    " It is absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to finish and review!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmine Me | 1/15/2014

    " I loved this book, I truly did, but I just cannot give a full 5 star rating, that's probably because somewhere near the end, Fisher lost her way or something, things just didn't add up, I blamed on the young-adultness and let it pass, I'll be sure to read the next book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Johnna | 1/12/2014

    " I tried to read this book (read 1st 100 pages) and it just didn't grab me! It reminded me a little of Dean Koontz's 77 Shadow St which I struggled with as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah Portz | 12/31/2013

    " The worldbuilding in this book is different in a refreshing way, but the quick switches between characters made this a particularly difficult audiobook. The narrator also switched between an American accent for the telling and british accents for the characters, which was quite jarring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dylan Young | 12/24/2013

    " It's not that this novel isn't great. It's more like the author prolonged the story making it less and less exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/19/2013

    " Great young adult adventure. Easy to read. Easy to follow. Most importantly: I cared about the characters. I highly recommend it to anyone who read and like Hunger Games, or Maze Runner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cerrah | 12/16/2013

    " I loved it until the ending. Then I was like "What????" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoelyn Copeland | 12/15/2013

    " The world is FANTASTIC, but the characters are less compelling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jarrod Green | 9/9/2013

    " Just good enough to keep me reading. I wanted to know what was going to happen - which makes me frustrated that it ends with a To Be Continued. I don't actually want to read the second one, I just want to know how it turns out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Hammer | 7/27/2013

    " Good read. The characters are distinct and the landscape is very well put together. "

    " very different but interesting "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leah | 7/1/2013

    " I hate this book. Still reading it, but only because I'm nearly halfway through and it's for book club. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 3/25/2013

    " A lot of things to fallow. A good story just hard to imagine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kat Hardy | 7/15/2012

    " I found this book hard to enjoy In the beginning. It was just hard to follow and I often didn't know what going on, it was actually like that throughout the novel, I found myself having to reread certain parts just so I could understand what was happening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Leedham | 12/20/2011

    " I constantly recommend this book to someone looking for something new. Loved this book ( and it's sequel) from beginning to end, and loved the twist in the first novel "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 10/25/2011

    " A hearty "meh". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 vorbore | 8/24/2011

    " Quite predictable, but with some interesting concepts. And the romance was pretty much completely avoided, which was a welcomed change, in comparison with most of the YA books I read lately. But the development of the plot was predictable. I would not mind to read on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 7/23/2011

    " You just get sucked in... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassidy | 6/29/2011

    " Kinda confusing, but a really great, well set up book once you understand it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheri | 6/29/2011

    " I found this book hard to get into, interesting in the middle and then disappointing in the end. I think it could make a great movie, I would just change the end a little! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrienne | 6/27/2011

    " It was okay. There's a sequel, which I do want to read, but I'm not running out to get it like with the sequel to The Hunger Games.

    Somewhat predictable, but I can forgive that.

    I was hoping for science fiction and I felt this bordered somewhat on fantasy at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 6/24/2011

    " This book really confused me. I couldn't tell wether or not I liked it. It was very different from anything else I'd read, not just the plot but in the way it was written. It's a very unique book. It was fun and I finally decided that I really liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lilly | 6/24/2011
