Finn has escaped from the terrible living Prison of Incarceron, but its memory torments him, because his brother Keiro is still inside. Outside, Claudia insists he must be king, but Finn doubts even his own identity. Is he the lost prince Giles? Or are his memories no more than another construct of his imprisonment? And can you be free if your friends are still captive? Can you be free if your world is frozen in time? Can you be free if you don't even know who you are? Inside Incarceron, has the crazy sorcerer Rix really found the Glove of Sapphique, the only man the Prison ever loved. Sapphique, whose image fires Incarceron with the desire to escape its own nature. If Keiro steals the glove, will he bring destruction to the world? Inside. Outside. All seeking freedom. Like Sapphique. [Product Description]

Both Incarceron & Sapphique were first published in the U.K. as paperbacks
Even though Sapphique is not scheduled to be released in the U.S. until late December 2010, it was released in the U.K. almost 2 years ago. As such, there are new and used paperback copies available through various book sellers, including Amazon.com*, Powells, and Abebooks*.

I've added both books to my collectibles list, however neither is currently listing at any great value. Other books in the dystopian/ steampunk vein that are highly collectible:
