a review by Ant, in the genre(s) Science Fiction. Book published by Faber and Faber in July 2009

Furnace: Solitary is a young adult science fiction novel, the second volume in the Furnace series by Alexander Gordon Smith.

Furnace Prison is located a mile beneath the surface of the planet, a place where juveniles are sentenced to life imprisonment with no hope of release, a place where death is the least of your problems.

Alex thought he'd made it, thought he was free, he should have known there is no way out of Furnace.

He is now deeper in the guts of the prison than ever, solitary confinement, where the Warden and the Wheezers are not the worst creatures, there are horrors far more deadly.

If Alex doesn't escape soon, he may not even have the luxury of dying, he may turn into a freak himself, forever twisted and craving blood.
