“He had wanted so hard to Escape, to find the stars. And all he had found was a new prison.”
After reading "Incarceron", which was very interesting, I had to reach for the continuation. And I have to admit that the whole thing was comparable to the first part. The same thing caught my attention and the same meant that I not rate this position higher. History is certainly remarkable, can find here elements of many genres, from sci-fi, through fantasy and adventure, it’s a mystery, is tension, only missing any stronger outlined romantic thread. The whole really impresses, but still appeared, at least for me, trouble witch imagining some places and situations, and still think, that the descriptions of the characters leave some unsatisfied.
What is in this part? Finn escaped from prison, dreamed about it for the whole stay inside, he finally saw the stars, but Outside didn’t meet fully his expectations, went to the Kingdom where people live in harmony with the Protocol on the model of past epochs, a world of intrigue, lies and illusions, where only the richest and those who have the power, they have everything. And poor? They have absolutely nothing. When the Queen playing in the old days, they live in them.
Finn cann’t believe that came from one prison to another and in addition left inside his blood brother, which after The Warden intrigue cann’t get out, and now at all costs he’s looking the exit. Meanwhile, prison, as self-sufficient being, living his life and puts his own plan.
What is the truth about that world?
The end of and the answer for this question may not be fantastic, but certainly worth exploring. I certainly recommend this book. I wasn't bored.
