Book Description

3 Mar 2011 Furnace

The whole world has become a prison, and Alfred Furnace is its master.

Monsters rule the streets, beasts of pure fury that leave nothing but murder and madness in their wake. Those who do not die are turned, becoming slaves to Furnace's reign of cruelty. It is a war to end all wars, one that will leave the planet in ruins.

I am a monster too. I am one of Alfred Furnace's children. And I am the only one who can stop him. I have to find a way to use my powers to destroy Furnace, but in doing so I risk becoming the very force that kills us all.

I don't know if I am the executed or the executioner. I don't know who will die: me, Furnace or the entire human race.

All I know is that one way or another, it all ends today.

Product Description


Praise for Escape from Furnace

"Fresh and ferocious . . . 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

"Uniquely horrifying." --"Realms of Fantasy"

"Gritty action and compelling characters will have reluctant readers enthralled." --"School Library Journal"

"Breathlessly paced and soaked with blood, mucus, and less savory substances . . . Readers who relish lurid imagery . . . will continue to be riveted and left eager for the next disgust-o-rama episode." --"Booklist"

"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"

"My biggest success story last year was when a student, a 5th year senior, attended a booktalk and couldn't wait to read "Lockdown". It was the first book he read all the way through in five years of high school." --Librarian, Washington High School, Sioux Falls, SD

5.0 out of 5 stars The Furnace Finale 11 July 2011
review from my 11 yr old son

I've read all of the Furnace series but this was definitely the best. It was a really satisfying read although slightly sad in parts. There's lots of epic action and it's easy to read - a must read for boys who like action and weaponry. At the end of the book there's a link to a website where you can read an epilogue which is really interesting and gives you more information about what happened afterwards. A great ending to a wonderful series - I'm now looking forward to reading the new series The Fury!
