Description

In the third book in the Escape from Furnace series, Alex struggles to survive the bloody, brutal laboratories beneath Furnace Penitentiary, where monsters are made .

Alex's second attempt to break out of Furnace Penitentiary failed. This time, his punishment will be much worse than before.

Because in the hidden, bloodstained laboratories beneath the prison, he will be made into a monster. As the warden pumps something evil into his veins--a sinisterly dark nectar--Alex becomes what he most fears . . . a superhuman minion of Furnace.

How can he escape when the darkness is inside him? How can he lead the way to freedom if he is lost to himself?

Praise for Death Sentence (Escape from Furnace Book 3) : "In this third installment of the Furnace series, Gordon-Smith has pulled out all the stops. It is a tour de force of action and adventure... Honestly, this reviewer could not put this book down, having thoroughly enjoyed all of the novels in this series, and will anxiously await the release of Fugitives: Escape from Furnace 4. . . . Please continue to wow us, Mr. Gordon Smith--your books are a pleasure to read." -- VOYA

Praise for Solitary (Escape from Furnace Book 2):

"Fast paced and packed with nail-biting scenarios . . . This is a dark story with a dark ending, but the gritty action and compelling characters will have reluctant readers enthralled." -- School Library Journal

"Once again, Smith has created a thrill ride that will leave the audience wanting more. Smith's prose is fast paced, witty, and sometimes downright terrifying. Some of the images he creates could manifest into a nightmare or two. Teens who are looking for a great thriller/horror story will definitely want to pick up these novels." -- VOYA

"Adrenaline-fueled action infuses the narrative as it did in Lockdown (2009), keeping the pages turning. . . . The author knows what keeps his readers locked to the page and delivers it soundly." -- Kirkus Reviews "Breathlessly paced." --Booklist Praise for Lockdown (Escape from Furnace Book 3) : "Fresh and ferocious, Lockdown will hook boys with its gritty, unrelenting surprises." -- James Patterson

"Furnace is hotter than hell and twice as much fun! Sign me up for a life sentence of Alexander Gordon Smith!" -- Darren Shan, author of the Demonata series
