Summary from Goodreads:

        Finn has escaped from the terrible living Prison of Incarceron, but its memory torments him, because his brother Keiro is still inside. Outside, Claudia insists he must be king, but Finn doubts even his own identity. Is he the lost prince Giles? Or are his memories no more than another construct of his imprisonment? And can you be free if your friends are still captive? Can you be free if your world is frozen in time? Can you be free if you don't even know who you are? Inside Incarceron, has the crazy sorcerer Rix really found the Glove of Sapphique, the only man the Prison ever loved. Sapphique, whose image fires Incarceron with the desire to escape its own nature. If Keiro steals the glove, will he bring destruction to the world? Inside. Outside. All seeking freedom. Like Sapphique.

My Review:

         This book surprised me a little bit getting into it. It switches point of view between Claudia, Finn, Attia, and Jared. The general POV is third person but still, the author highlights each of those characters thoughts throughout the book, which I enjoyed. While reading, I had to remind myself a few times that it was Dystopian. The Era is portrayed as a flawless 16th century kingdom and it is hard to see through it. The way Catherine describes this is amazing to say the least. She created the most vivid visions of both The Realm and Incarceron.
         This time, we got a better insight into Keiro, Attia, and Jared's characters, as they weren't nearly as present in the first book, Incarceron. I know that Kerio is always fighting his nature and all that but his character seemed really hardened and dangerous most of the time. It really displayed what life Inside the Prison does to people like him. I found myself questioning whether he would ever try to save any of his companions or if survival was his priorital concern. Attia's strength is a lot more prominent in this book, even though she is still considered a slave. She is willing to to whatever it takes to save everyone from a terrible fate. Jared is fighting for his life with the disease that lives inside him and his resilience is shown throughout the pages.

       This book, as well as the first in the series, was not predictable at all. I love books like that, where I had no inkling as to what was going to happen next. It kept my on edge and curious all the way through.
