Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The fifth and final episode of this pornographically violent series brings chemically and surgically altered teen superkiller Alex face-to-face at last with hyperevil kingpin Alfred Furnace as humanity (which is to say Britain) fights a losing battle against Furnace’s army of maddened and deadly mutant children. Following a near-continual barrage of explicitly described bloodbaths and atrocities, Smith engineers a perfunctory happy ending, but his main intent is plainly to leave even those readers who glory in immersing themselves in staccato, gore-splashed prose a little queasy. In this, he succeeds admirably. Grades 6-9. --John Peters

Review

Fresh and ferocious . . . will hook boys with its gritty, unrelenting surprises. (James Patterson on the Escape from Furnace series)

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 on the Escape from Furnace series)

Gritty action and compelling characters will have reluctant readers enthralled. (School Library Journal on the Escape from Furnace series)

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 on the Escape from Furnace series)

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)

This was an amazing book and book series. Full of suspense,action, and anything else you would expect in a book. Gordon Smith is an excellent writer and I recommend any of his books to readers. This book made me cry. It was that good.

This is an amazing book, and it is a world apart from the first one. Throughout the series, the story changed drastically, and the conclusion is absolutely awesome. I mean that in the literal sense, as in it fills you with awe! Alexander has done an amazing job, and kept my interest throughout the entire book, I completely reccomend this for anyone who has read the others. If not, read them now!

I'm just going to go straight into the story. Execution is the fifth and final book in the Escape From Furnace series.

The Story-
Alex Sawyer is no longer human, he is a monster. Everyday he struggles to control the dark nectar from taking over his mind. The military has captured him, and he hopes they mean to help him and his friends. But, what Alex discovers, is a mad scientist, masquerading as a doctor.

Alfred Furnace controls the outside world, his monsters killing and causing havoc. Alex knows that the only way to win the battle is to kill Furnace, but at what cost will it be to Alex and his own soul.

My Thoughts-
Holy Crap! This whole series is way over the top. There is so much mayhem and cruelty it is unbelievable. The author has a knack for horror. The fifth book is on par with all the others, and is a fitting conclusion.

Truth is, I couldn't see how this series was going to end, but Alexander Smith pulls surprises out of the air at every turn. The ending is all about hope, something I felt all the other books lacked. From the very 1st book, Alex is sliding downhill, and nothing can stop him. But as a reader, you are so engaged in his story that you just keep reading, unable to put the books down. The only thing that keeps you going is the fact the Alex continues to remember his name even as his body changes.

The stories are complex, full of action, tension and weirdness. I don't know how this author dreamed up all the things he did, he is a true master. 5 stars, but not for the faint of heart.

Obviously this series was written for middle school boys yet my 15 year old daughter and I started reading them at the beginning. We have really enjoyed the action.

IThis is without a doubt one of the best books I've ever read. The characters were brilliant, the story was amazing. It takes a lot for a book to reduce me to tears, but this book managed to do so multiple times. Its beautifully written and I recomment it to horror readers, or if you like stories of friendship and loyalty in general. But what really did it for me were the references to my absolute favorite character in the series, Carl Donovan. They were so powerful. Nothing I've read even holds a candle to this series. Thank you, Alexander Gordon Smith for writing such a wonderful series.

I haven't been this obsessed with a book series in a long time. After I finished this book I closed it, hugged it to my chest, and sighed. That is how you know it was a good book! I literally cannot say enough good things about this series, especially this book. Best book of the whole series, in my opinion. I feel like I went on this journey with Alex, as crazy as that may sound, but I'm so proud of him! And Donovan will always be one of the best characters in all of fiction to me. I just love him that much! I am going to love rereading this series again and again and again and AGAIN! <3

Nothing directed to youths is on the same level as this series.
This book cries out to the animalistic craving we have for blood and psychological mishaps at a younger age. Though an easily entertaining read for all ages, I wish every young adult would be required to read this in school. This is what they crave, this is what they need.
Please give us more.
