Publisher's Summary

Alex's second attempt to break out of Furnace Penitentiary has 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 superpowered minion of Furnace. How can he escape when the darkness is inside him?

In Death Sentence, Alexander Gordon Smith delivers one chilling surprise after another, as the terrifying underground odyssey of his hero takes a nightmarish turn.

In furnace prison, how can you escape once they make you their monster?

Death Sentence is the third book in the five part Furnace series. To catch you up quickly, the Furnace series takes place in a below-ground youth prison in Australia in which a warped warden conducts experiments on the boys. While the books have always strayed slightly into the sci-fi realm, this book firmly sets up camp in sci-fi, and I would even go as far as to say the biopunk realm.

I really enjoyed these books. The Audible narrator is fantastic and nails the voices, accents, and urgency of the plot. The setting is unique. I've always had a thing for prison escape novels. And the lack of any romance or female presence in a young adult novel is an absolute breath of fresh air.

Bodie was my absolute favorite character in this book. Where was he sooner??

That said, this may be my station to get off the Furnace train. I really enjoy these books, but the internal monolog of Alex, the main character, is eating up so much territory, I would have a hard time pushing through two more books when the series probably would have sufficed as a trilogy. Fantastic books with an original plot. Highly recommend, especially for male readers looking for a great male lead...actually all male cast. I'm torn, but I think this is my stopping point, although I'm invested enough in the story that I may try to find a synopsis online.

I'd rate this a hard PG-13 for blood and gore, violence, scary situations and creatures, and mild swearing.
