Catherine Fisher Books Overview

Flain’s Coronet/The Hidden Coronet

The third installment in the Relic Master quartet! The coronet, a potent ancient relic, might be the only way to defeat the power that is destroying Anara. But it has been lost for centuries, and only legend tells of its whereabouts. Will Galen and Raffi be able to find it before the Watch does?

The Oracle/The Oracle Betrayed

They might not know what the future holds,
but they know they hold it in their hands.

Mirany, the newly appointed attendant to the Speaker, is untested, in fear for her life, and keeper of the god’s secrets.

Seth, an ambitious scribe toiling in the shadow of the pyramid, has discovered the secret labyrinths and underground passages to the tombs.

Hermia, the Speaker, interprets the words of the god and twists his wishes to suit her treachery.

General Argelin, the cunning leader in league with the Speaker, intends to dictate the choosing of the new ruler Alexos, the quiet boy, is fated to rule the land — unless his enemies succeed in their plot.

Oblek, the foolish musician, may be the only person who can keep Alexos alive.

The Jackal, the black-market tomb raider, will strike like a scorpion if anyone interferes with his scheme to rob the sacred catacombs

The Archon/The Sphere of Secrets

The fate of his world rests in his hands

Young Alexos is now officially the Archon. But political corruption and a deadly drought still tear at the heart of the Two Lands. Together with his friends Mirany, Seth, and Oblek, Alexos sets out to save his people. He realizes that the key lies at the Well of Songs a place from which no one has ever returned. With only an ancient map written on a silver sphere to guide him, Alexos must embark on his perilous journey to right an ancient wrong, before it is too late.

The Scarab/Day of the Scarab

How will their struggle end?

Madness reigns in the Two Lands. General Argelin has proclaimed himself king and is systematically destroying all enemies humans…
and gods.

Mirany, the young priestess, is in hiding.

Alexos, the boy who should be ruler, is powerless.

Seth and the Jackal are scrambling to gather a small group of resisters without attracting notice from Argelin or from the sinister power he now controls in the sign of the scarab.

Their last hope lies in the Underworld. Mirany can lead their journey into death, but can she bring them back?


Incarceron — a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology — a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber — chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison — a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device — a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn’s escape is born…


Finn has escaped Incarceron, but Keiro and Attia are still Inside. Outside, things are not at all what Finn expected and both Finn’s and Claudia’s very lives hang on Finn convincing the Court that he is the lost prince. Back Inside, Keiro and Attia are on the hunt for Sapphique‘s glove, which legend says he used to escape. In order to find it, they must battle the prison itself. Incarceron has built itself a body and it wants to go Outside just like Sapphique, the only prisoner Incarceron ever loved.’High intensity, mind bending…
Fisher further explores themes of reality, illusion, and freedom without losing her intensely original world building and authentic characters.’ Booklist, starred review’Even as the steadily ratcheting certainty of impending catastrophe keeps the pages turning, the sheer richness of the evocative descriptions demands that every sentence be savored…
. For those who can appreciate the interplaying reflections of lies, myths and memory, a modern masterpiece.’ Kirkus Reviews, starred review
