Life was supposed to be better once Finn escaped the grim prison of Incarceron. He would get his memories back, become the long-lost Prince Giles, and not have to worry about being lost in a world that promised death around every corner. Instead, he is more lost than ever. Claudia, the warden’s daughter and Finn’s betrothed, is pressuring him to become princely practically overnight before the evil Queen Sia orders their execution and throws the realm into utter chaos. As Finn and Claudia struggle to maintain control over the increasingly precarious situation in the realm, Finn can’t help but think of his friends he left behind in Incarceron.
Keiro and Attia, on the other hand, haven’t stopped cursing Finn since he abandoned them in the prison. Finn promised he would come back, but as the months crept by, they were forced to take matters into their own hands. With their only means of escape gone, they resort to following the lead of ancient stories. Legend has it that the only person to ever escape from Incarceron, a man named Sapphique, left a glove behind that could be used to open a portal deep within the heart of the prison. Securing it won’t be easy, and Keiro and Attia will have to battle against someone else who is deeply interested in it --- Incarceron itself.
As Finn and Claudia struggle to find a way to help Finn’s friends, a new threat emerges. Another person steps forward and claims that he is the forsaken Prince Giles and immediately casts doubts to the legitimacy of Finn’s story. Queen Sia and her advisors agree to hold a questioning of both Finn and the “pretender” to decide who the real prince is, and Finn finds himself battling to save his life once again. The “pretender” can recount numerous details from his childhood, knows the ins and outs of royalty, and is more self-confident and assured of his identity than Finn could ever hope to be. And just when he needs her most, Claudia doesn’t know what to believe any
