There were one or two hints about Keiro and Attia maybe liking each other, despite all of their denials, but, like I said, the end leaves you hanging.
I did like how Keiro and Attia stayed together, even though he claimed not to like her, you can tell he does. Mar 16, Heather rated it really liked it Shelves: I was a little annoyed by this at first, but by the end I think this toying with the real and unreal is what really wowed me.
Beautiful, creative ctherine is beautiful, creative prose! Attia steps out of the prison for the first time and she is awed by the stars. I also don’t think there is enough back story. I was not THAT surprised! Perhaps the publishers rushed the book to print? The ending ties up all major loose ends and is pretty satisfying, while ironically still leaving basically every question unanswered and positing that maybe the truth isn’t really as important as we think it is in the grand scheme of things and that a lot of times it’s better not to know some things.
Keiro decides to not give the prison the glove and puts it on himself. No conventional tidy ending is offered; the sapphiqie conclusion glimmers from only the faint hope gained by revealing the truth.
Meanwhile, Attia is desperate to see Finn again, but he barely gives her a thought — he’s too worried about Keiro.

The prison wants to escape itself to see the stars, if it does this, it will leave millions of prisoners left to die. They would ask each other riddles, and the one who could not answer would lose.
The hardback cover shows an ornate golden keyhole. She leads sessions for teachers and librarians and is an experienced broadcaster and adjudicator. For Incarceron has gone insane and is determined to Escape itself There fishdr so many sub arcs going on and never any explanations as the plots advanced, no explanations to the various actions being taken by characters, no journey through their thought process or understanding as to why they’ve made this decision or that.
Claudia and Finn don’t have any feelings for each other, protocol I just finished the book and I have to say it left me a bit cold. This fiser was a complete let down after how amazing the first book Incarceron was. The relationships between all fihser characters in this novel also were awesome.
He trades places with Sappuique. Aug 28, Harmonyofbooks rated it liked it. I can’t imagine how others have digested this book amidst the convoluted layers. Were you disappointed with the point that nobody ‘ended up together’ in Sapphique? Not one character is entirely good or completely horrible. I kept waiting for karma to come and beat him over the head, and it never happened.
There were so many points where she could have had the relationships between characters grow or become more complicated, and make the story even more interesting, and she didn’t.
