Finn, a seventeen-year-old prisoner, has no memory of his childhood and is sure that he came from Outside Incarceron.

Catherine Fisher writes with consummate skill and depth of feeling.' -- The Bookseller 'a smart, complex, engrossing and emotionally involving read.' -- Bookshelves of Doom 'a deep and sophisticated adventure story' -- Write Away '... a riveting book that keeps you turning pages. There are plenty of plot twists, mysteries, excitement, and secrets to hold your attention from the beginning to the very end. Even things that seem obvious may not be as they seem; there's enough ambiguity to keep you guessing.' -- Wands and Worlds 'This gripping futuristic fantasy has breathless pacing, an intelligent storyline, and superb detail in rendering both of the stagnating environments. ... With some well-timed shocking twists and a killer ending, this is a musthave.' -- Booklist '... brilliantly realized ... reader attention never flags through this elegant, gritty, often surprising novel.' -- The Horn Book magazine 'Complex and inventive, with numerous and rewarding mysteries, this tale is certain to please.' -- Publishers Weekly PRAISE FOR THE ORACLE SEQUENCE: '... a rich, resonant conclusion to the series.' -- Booklist - May 06 'Vivid, complicated, and thoroughly engrossing, this fast paced adventure keeps readers avidly turning pages until the majestic conclusion.' -- Horn Book Review May/June 06 ... an intoxicating world reminiscent of the Arabian Nights.

An engrossing, intricate story of an extraordinary journey undertaken by richly imaginative characters' -- Carousel '... wholly engaging and rushes along as a breathless and nail-biting pace ... a gripping read that should enthral both young and old fans' -- Buzz Oozes a del Toro flick vibe. -- SFX Magazine
