Escape from Furnace: Lockdown

Publisher: Faber Children's Books

Imagine hell on earth. Furnace is so much worse than that. Boys ripped apart by mutant dogs or subjected to gruesome and depraved experimentation make death seem the easy option.

New inmate Alex and long-time prisoner Donovan are desperate to get out and think they may have found a chink in the armour but will the blood watch claim them before they can execute their plan?

This first book of a trilogy features gripping and imaginative edge-of-seat drama. Cleverly constructed and well characterised, it will leave readers eagerly anticipating the second installment.
