Well, it’s December, and we’ve come to the final installment in the Breathless Reads blog tour. Where did the year go?!
On Wednesday, Catherine will share a really lovely guest post about the writing process, and as usual, Friday will be interview day, but for now, I’m going to do my best to tell you a little bit about the book.
Sapphique is the highly-anticipated sequel to a little book called Incarceron—you may have heard of it? It’s a New York Times Bestseller and the news was recently announced that it’s going to be a feature film, and will star Taylor Lautner in the role of Finn. THE Taylor Lautner, you may ask? Why yes, I answer, The Taylor Lautner.
For those who haven’t read Incarceron, I apologize because this is going to be a little spoilery by necessity. Or, a lot. So, if you don’t want it spoiled, stop . . . reading . . . right . . . NOW. Mainly, Sapphique begins several months after Finn has escaped from the living prison Incarceron, leaving his friends behind. (See, I told you?)
Now on the outside, Finn is faced with a new and oppressive world in which he is a lost prince, subject to the machinations of the Queen, when all he really cares about is rescuing his comrades. Meanwhile, back in Incarceron, Attia and Keiro are determined to find their own way out. And then there’s Incarceron itself. The vast living prison craves freedom from itself and is spurred on by the legendary escape of Sapphique—the only prisoner it ever loved. Sapphique is a strange, beautiful, sweeping book with no easy answers and a story that explores what being free really means.
I hope you’ll check back Wednesday—I’ll be sharing Catherine’s guest post and you’ll have the chance to win a copy of Sapphique!
