Incarceron was supposed to be a utopia. Instead, the prison has become a violent sealed world of no escape, though legend says one man once made it to the Outside. Finn, 17, doesn't remember his birth in Incarceron, but he believes in the possibility of escape and that he is somehow different from the other prisoners. Meanwhile, the daughter of Incarceron's Warden, Claudia, is about to be married to a simple-minded heir to the throne. She's on the Outside, living in a society forced to adhere to Medieval living, when she finds a crystal key.
