Very good start to what looks to be a great series. I'm definitely going to pick up the next one. I was a bit older than the intended audience, so the pacing was quicker than I'm used to, but I still enjoyed it.

This is the best series so far! I don't know how but every SINGLE book I had picked up was just mouth-watering AWESOME.

P.S. My last book was "The Lab" btw.

  • SCCLD LIBRARIANS FOR TEENS rated this: 5 stars out of 5.

Alex is running a string of burglaries when he and his best friend are caught in the act, and Alex is framed for murder. Alex is sentenced to life in the infamous prison "Furnace" which houses only teens. It was created especially for that purpose after a summer of shocking gang murders several years earlier. Not only is Furnace unusual in that it is almost completely underground, there are also huge freaky guards, monster dogs and machine guns. Worst of all are the men in gas masks who take you away in the middle of the night… With the help of his cellmate and a few friends, Alex manages to steer clear of the guards and gangs to survive. But Alex wants to do more than survive- he wants to escape and get his life back. "Beneath heaven is hell. Beneath hell is Furnace." Grade 9+ , 288 pages
