    I give this about a B/B- - somewhere in between "Pretty good" and "Very nice". This book was pretty good. I think I enjoyed it more than Incarceron, pretty much because I was familiar enough with the basic storyline and didn’t have to spend so much time figuring everything out. The pacing was pretty good, but the last 100 pages really, REALLY dragged…and it got to the point where I came dangerously close to not caring anymore…that’s not usually a good sign. And yet…I don’t want to ma [...]

    I swear that people simply must not get this series (I say “series” hopefully, because for right now it looks like there will only be the two books). I don’t mean that in some kind of pretentious, exclusive way, it’s just my only rationalization for why both books are only thisclose to being 4 stars. Are the wrong people reading them? Are people going in with certain, um, expectations and not feeling that they’re met? Do people just not want to do any real thinking?I really need to sto [...]

    This book was SO AWESOME (like its predecessor) in so many ways, and yet emotionally so agonizing! Please, please, please, Catherine Fisher, write a third book, I don't care what you have to do to the plot, just resolve all these emotional threads you left hanging! Don't make me write epic Jared/Claudia fanfic just to ease the pain!So much cool stuff in this book, though. So much that I know I'll have to read it at least twice (as I did INCARCERON) just to keep it all straight in my head.

    Sometimes when I'm sitting on the couch at night reading, loopy with exhaustion, I look over at my cats and start thinking about how weird it is that they're sentient beings who have feelings and communicate in ways that I will never understand. Then I pass out with my book on my face. But if you are like me and have a hard enough time grasping animal consciousness, then you will probably also have a hard time taking seriously the idea that a prison is not only a sentient being but wants to buil [...]

    I was so interested to read the follow-up to Incarceron that I ordered the UK version of Sapphique so I wouldn't have to wait until December to find out what happened to Finn and Claudia (and c'mon, having a UK edition is pretty cool, too). MILD SPOILERS:In Fisher's sequel, Finn's been sprung out of one prison and into another -- as future king of the Realm, he's trapped in all the usual politicking. He still can't remember his past life as Prince Giles, and he's plagued by memories (Keiro, trap [...]

    I gave the first book in this series a bit of a light ride, because I was intrigued by the ideas, and thank goodness, it was something different in a mass of fantasy books that were decidedly running together. So although there were things left unexplained, relationships that seemed strained, I hoped those would be delved into in greater depth in later volumes, and let it pass. Unfortunately, the second book doesn't resolve any of the problems, and seems to be the end of the series, so, where am [...]

    I'm a little unsure how I feel about this book. I did enjoy some parts, especially the steam punk element. But a lot of it had me feeling very meh. I still did enjoy the concept and the twists and turns that kept me guessing just like with the first book. But the ending left me feeling very unsatisfied. In a way I feel like instead of wrapping up the series, this book left me with more questions than it answered.

    There was just too much going on in this book. The first book, Incarceron, created an intriguing world, but it also set the stage - for an escape from prison, for Finn's rise to King, for a romantic relationship between Finn and Claudia. And while these things do happen in Sapphique, they come about in the most unsatisfying way possible. We go from one dizzying plot turn to another, with little explanation of the character's motivations. And while every page seems to bring some new action, the r [...]

    This was one of the most amazing books I have read in a long time. Let me start by saying that Fisher is a true wordsmith. Her prose is always lyrical and just so so lovely. It's been a long time since I've read such quotable and enjoyable writing.The plot moved much more quickly in this book than it did in the first, and I was grateful for that. At the same time, there were parts with no real plot, but not one of these scenes felt unnecessary or boring or out of place. Each of them contributed [...]

    So yeah - I gave up. This book was a complete let down after how amazing the first book Incarceron was. But sadly my copy was due back at the library and considering I hadn't picked it back up in over a week and a half I figured I would rather spend my time reading books I am still interested in.This book's worst problem (just as in the first book) was characterization. All of the characters were like cardboard cutouts. They told you a story but I didn't get any feeling from it. Not to mention F [...]

    WHAT?! It's over! And the ending was maddening!!! Absolutely maddening! But, let me backtrack a bit. Plot: Slow in parts. But overall, I liked the way it moved along. This book was full of action and suspense, like Incarceron. I liked how there were many plot lines running at once, with many different characters. I actually liked how the point of view changed around a lot, because it gave me a look in everyone's motives. It was fairy unpredictable, which was cool in parts and aggravating in othe [...]

    I reviewed Incarceron a few weeks back and, although I didn't like it, I already had a copy of the ARC. Sapphique was not better than the first book in the series, but it was easier for me to get through, perhaps because I had much lower expectations. All of my problems with the first book still remain here.The characters, all of them, are pretty much entirely unlikeable. Jared, Claudia's tutor, is the character I most liked, but the reader has known since the beginning of book one that he has a [...]

    I enjoyed this book more than the first one, but it was hard for me to get into the story in the beginning. But once when I got into the story, I couldn't stop reading.Keiro was my top character again, his personality and his atitudes were the best part of the book. I have to congratulate Catherine for getting him out of the prison. But Attia could've stayed in the prison, because I dislike her a lot.The whole perfect world everyone was living in started falling apart, and I liked that. We final [...]

    Το δεύτερο μέρος μου άρεσε κ αυτό πάρα πολύ. Δεν μου θυμίζει κανένα βιβλίο που έχω διαβάσει έως τώρα. Δεν έχει love story, οι ήρωες με εξαίρεση δύο, δεν έχουν αγνές προθέσεις, κάνουν υπολογιστικές κινήσεις, γίνονται αντιπαθείς και ξέρουν να επιβιώνουν, και ναι αυτό είναι ένα από τ [...]

    Не завиждам на хората, които са прочели „Инкарсерон” на Катрин Фищър (изд. „Хермес”) и след това са чакали с месеци продължението й „Сапфик”. Напрежението сигурно ги е гризало доста. Аз, за моя голяма радост, имам шанса да разтворя втората книга веднага след като съм прикл [...]

    I still don't love these books. I think the story line is very interesting but the characters just aren't "something" enough - there is no one to really hate or love or pull for, so i don't have the connection. I also don't think there is enough back story. Why are they in this artificial time and what was the war about? It is mentioned but no real details.

    HmKhi đọc xong cuốn này chỉ muốn đập bộp một phát cho hả giận.Tiếc tiền quá mà, với 140k cho Incarceron và 145k cho Sapphique thì những gì mình nhận được không hề xứng đáng tẹo nào.Thế nên sau khi vừa đọc xong, tức là cách đây vài tiếng ấy, mình đã dặn lòng là thôi, đợi cho bình tĩnh lại đã rồi viết sau=))Nói cho đến sáng mai cũng chưa chắc đã hết những điều mình không ưng ở cuốn [...]

    "Dışarı'ya çıkmanın bir yolu var. Sapphique buldu. Anahtar deliği küçüçük, bir atomdan bile küçük. Ve kartal ile kuğu onu korumak için kanatlarını kaldırmışlar."3,5/5🌟🌟🌟Serinin ikinci kitabına Finn'in kan kardeşi Keiro'dan ayrılmasıyla ve hak ettiği unvana adım adım yaklaşmasıyla başlıyoruz. Diğer yandan da Claudia'nın Üstat Jared ile İncarceron hakkında araştırmalarını okuyoruz. Bu kitap ilkine göre daha dolu doluydu. Zaten seriden en çok bek [...]

    Krista (I remember you, Min) (Critical)
    This just wasn't as good as the first. I liked how Keiro and Attia were still trapped in the prison, so we weren't cut off from its awesomeness entirely, but somehow it didn't feel as interesting in this one. The character of Rix was pretty annoying and he thorougly grossed me out. I did like how Keiro and Attia stayed together, even though he claimed not to like her, you can tell he does. What annoyed me was the lack of character development. Keiro, Attia, Claudia, and Finn all stay exactly the [...]

    I had such high hopes for this book. I had mixed feelings after reading Incarceron and thought maybe one needed to read the conclusion of this series in order to really get it. So, I special ordered Sapphique from the UK, since it won't be published in the US for another few months. What a huge let down this installment was!! This book made me feel like I must be some kind of idiot, because I just didn't get it! I am usually very quick to pick up on what's happening in the plots of books. I stil [...]

    4.5 stars, I must say.Okay, so I'm still in shock I'm still trying to figure this all out Well, I'm not going to write a review about this book, because I barely remember anything, since it took so long for me to finish it. However, if I were to write something, I would say something like thisFirst of all, WHAT AN AMAZING (although not exactly satisfying) ENDING! Incredible! Since that moment when "the truth about the both worlds was revealed", I just loved this book! It showed so many important [...]

    Sajnos nem tudom azt mondani, hogy akinek tetszett évekkel ezelőtt az első rész, az biztosan élvezni fogja a folytatást, mert ez nem így van. Én legalább is biztosan nem élveztem ezt most annyira, sőt egy idő elteltével kifejezetten untam is, szívesebben olvastam volna valami mást, ennél egy árnyalattal sötétebb történetet inkább. A folytatásra egész egyszerűen túl sokat kellett várni, és az évek során az olvasó belefuthatott néhány kimagaslóan jó ifjúsági fa [...]

    I just finished the book and I have to say it left me a bit cold. The last 100 pages or so felt so rushed--I couldn't believe how quickly the action was tied up.And while I understand a creator who doesn't want to answer every single question (hello, Damon Lindelof and Carleton Cuse!), there are so many loose threads left hanging that it just feels sloppy. The Warden's actions at the end make no sense. Who or what is Rix, really? Claudia and Finn don't have any feelings for each other, protocol [...]

    I loved Incarceron, and perhaps had too high hopes for Sapphique it's a good sequel, but not a great sequel. Part of that may have been my hope that it would be more like Fire was to Graceling than an addition to the original story - there's no reason for me to have thought that just wishing.Anyway, Sapphique picks up shortly after Finn Escapes to Outside, with Claudia and Jared trying to figure out how to work the Portal and Sia trying to prove that Finn is not Prince Giles; Inside, Keiko and A [...]

    Phần cuối của series Incarceron, phải nói là hồi hộp hết chỗ chê. Finn đã Trốn thoát, đã thấy được Bên Ngoài, nhưng tâm trạng cậu chưa bao giờ yên ổn, vì Keiro - người anh em kết nghĩa của cậu - vẫn đang còn kẹt lại ở Bên Trong Ngục Tù; vì cậu vẫn chưa thể nào làm quen được với vai trò của một Hoàng tử, một vị vua tương lai. Rồi sự xuất hiện của một gã trai khác, người tuyên b [...]

    I wanted to wait until I'd read both Incarceron and Sapphique before I wrote my review. While each book stands on its own, I had to see where the story went (after finishing Incarceron) and how I felt about it.Let me preface this by saying I didn't not like the book. If allowed half stars for rating, I would've rated both as 2.5s. Personally, I thought Catherine Fisher was quite innovative in creating a Matrix-steam-punk-YA mash-up: in some future time, because of all the wars and rebellions (a [...]

    Tak tohle se upřímně moc nepovedlo. A to byl Inkarceron tak super! Nevím, ale přišlo mi to zbytečně natahované a ten konec je jeden velký mindfuck, kdy nevíte, co si o celé duologii myslet. Třeba to, že jste na ni zbytečně plýtvali svým časem
