One of today's best fantasy writers...readers can look forward to a deliciously dark and scary ride (The Independent)
Complex and richly imagined (New Welsh Review)
Imaginatively drawn and vividly described (School Librarian)
Catherine Fisher is an artist with words -- a brilliant writer and of fantasty and Incarceron maintains the high standard set by The Oracle and The Snow Walker trilogies...An engrossing, intricate story of an extraordinary journey undertaken by richly imaginative characters (Carousel)
Complete and believable. The story is wholly engaging and rushes along at a breathless and nail-biting pace with plenty of heroic moments and near misses...A gripping read that should enthral both young and old fantasy fans alike. (Buzz)
Beautifully imagined and realised...a barnstorming piece of serious fantasy that doesn't put a foot wrong...tense and fast-paced with a real atmosphere of menace (The Bookbag)
Fisher remains a superb writer (Write Away)
One of this year's most striking fantasy novels (The Times Online)
The plotting is intricate and the levels of legend and action are multi-layered...A tense and complicated fantasy adventure (Books For Keeps)
One novel stands out above all others...thrilling...a modern version of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast, though given a better plot, people we care about and a prose style honed by decades of writing poetry (The Times)
Dark, powerful and compelling, from the award-winning author of the Oracle.See all Product description

I felt the same way with Lord of the rings. It was obvious the ring would get there in the end and so much of the story was just padding. I'm probably just not suited to stories where the participants make some sort of journey and you know they'll get there in the end as I lose interest in what happens to them on the way.
The whole idea of the prison was interesting, but a bit odd as it wasn't clear what happened to prisoners in current times as it sounded as though they stopped sending prisoners there a while ago at the end of the book where as at the beginning of the book it was portrayed as an active prison. It seemed an increasingly pointless place as the book went on. Stopping the prison inhabitants breeding by putting contraceptives in the water and letting them all just die so the prison is phased out and could be destroyed would have made more sense.
