5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 5 Aug 2011
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
In the third book of the ESCAPE FROM FURNACE series, Alex Sawyer must confront the worst enemy of all - himself.

The Warden of Furnace should be furious with Alex. Alex has tricked him, defied him, and tried to escape - twice! However, the Warden views Alex with something worse than rage: he sees him as a good candidate.

Suffering from injuries and burns from his second escape attempt, Alex is taken to the infirmary where the wheezers inject him with the starry midnight nectar that keeps him from feeling pain, but also infuses him with a building anger. As Alex's body tries to heal, the Warden and blacksuits begin poisoning Alex's mind with words, with films, and with promises of what life will be like when he is one of them.

Slowly, Alex begins to turn into what he has fought so hard against - an inhabitant of Furnace.

The third novel of this series was awesome! Smith has managed to turn the series on the reader. For the first two books, I was anxious for Alex, hoping he'd survive Furnace with his life intact, then his sanity. In this book, I was simply hoping Alex would be able to keep his own identity! The non-stop action keeps the story rolling right along, and leaves with a cliffhanger that makes the wait for the next book so hard to bear!

5.0 out of 5 stars A pulse-pounding and action-packed installment 30 Dec 2011
By Fiktshun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Furnace Penitentiary is a fortress. A mile beneath the surface, with walls of chiseled rock, escape is not a viable option.

Not when there are cameras everywhere, mounted machine guns ready to take aim at the first sign of rebellion and black suits more than happy to deliver their brand of justice.

But when your only other choices are to die or become a monster, trying to find a way out seems worth the risk.

Even if it means unleashing an evil that you can't control. Even if it means enduring the Warden's wrath. And even if it means that Alfred Furnace will be coming for you.

***

Death Sentence is third, pulse-pounding, action-packed and bone-chilling installment in the Escape from Furnace series by Alexander Gordon Smith. With each new book, the series gets darker, the dangers to the main character Alex become exponentially greater, his chances of survival grow slimmer and the need to escape is even more critical.

Readers were first introduced to the blood watch, the dogs, the black suits, the wheezers and the Warden. Then they got to meet the rats. But there are things that are even more terrifying, even more deadly. Things that even the Warden can't control.

They are the berserkers. These terrifying creatures that were once human are Alfred Furnace's creations. Experiments gone wrong. Beings so devoid of humanity, filled only with rage and tremendous power, that their bloodlust knows no bounds and their loyalty is to no man. They will kill without thought, slaughter without mercy. And if they were to be let loose, there would be almost no hope for survival.

In Death Sentence, author Alexander Gordon Smith takes readers to new parts of Furnace Penitentiary and introduces them to all sorts of new horrors. More is revealed about the origins of the experiments, the wheezer's nectar, the Warden and even Alfred Furnace.

And as with each previous installment, the situation becomes even more dire. When things seem as if they can't possibly get worse, they do.

The author has managed to increase the level of excitement with each book, surprising readers with new twists and turns, taking things right to the edge of the abyss before pulling them back, and layering in such vivid, detailed descriptions of each new monstrosity, each new horror that is visited upon the inmates, and each new obstacle that his characters must face in their attempts to regain their freedom.

The pace in Death Sentence is blistering. The action is intense and riveting. The characters' plight is nerve-wracking. And the outcome is still unknown.

With two more books in the series, who will be the victor is still to be determined.

For fans of the series, this installment is not one to be missed. And for those who haven't yet visited Furnace Penitentiary, be prepared to be scared, to witness horrors never imagined and to discover that the longer you stay the less you'll want to leave.

This series is a must, must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars OH MY GOOOOODDDDDDDD!!!! I think my head just EXPLODEEEDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!! 9 April 2012
By Sharks Can't Stop Swimming - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved every second of itI It was fast paced, exciting, satisfying. It made me laugh and cry, no matter how cliche that sounds. The ending was so epic and so climactic that I damn near pissed myself. It probably achieved that effect of "Oh my God, it's finally happening" better than any other book, or series, more accurately, that I've read. I immediately jumped to the computer and ordered the next two books from Britain because I just couldn't wait. Yeah... we'll talk about those later... - -

4.0 out of 5 stars "It's impossible to escape anything when the chains are inside you." 27 Nov 2011
By Cheryl Stout - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"Death Sentence" is the third in Smith's ESCAPE FROM FURNACE series and it is definitely the most action packed - and violent. I have read the previous two books - Lockdown: Escape from Furnace 1 and Solitary: Escape from Furnace 2. I think this is a great dystopian series and I had a hard time tearing myself away from this third glimpse into a frightening future where youth are jailed for all types of crimes - and are given life sentences.

"Death Sentence" answered quite a few of the questions that came up in the previous two books but also came up with a whole slew more.

Alex, remember your name; wheezers, blacksuits, the dreadful warden, nectar, pain and causing pain, mayhem and death, old friends, new comrades in terror, Nazis, brainwashing, death, violence and Alfred Furnace - all combined for a "bloody" good time in this mayhem marathon.

NOTE: I am an adult of 50+ years. I have enjoyed this series and will continue to read it until I get all my questions answered but I don't necessarily agree that this is a Young Adult book. Each book of the series seems to have gotten progressively more violent, bloody and gory. Something I've written before - just because the protagonists in a book are young does not necessarily make the book appropriate for young readers.

There are two more books planned in this series (they already might be out in England). These are Fugitives: Escape from Furnace 4 and "Execution: Escape From Furnace 5".

5.0 out of 5 stars Action Packed, Never Boring 13 Oct 2011
By Book Sake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Just like the other books in this series, it was amazing. The Escape From Furnace series has to be one of my favorite series of books. The plot of the book is well written and the characters are in depth. I actually felt emotion for some of the characters, which books rarely make me feel. This book is action packed and a little bit more violent and bloody than the others, but so much happens in this book. You never get bored of reading it. Even when there isn't action and it's him thinking, it's entertaining and worth reading. Can't wait to read the fourth book in the series, I know it will be just as good.
