Lockdown, Escape From Furnace

Lockdown: Escape from Furnace 1 - Alexander Gordon Smith

Oh but this was GOOD! So good.

 

Anyone who thinks that YA is purely for girls who like shiny vamps, dopey romances and daftly happy endings NEEDS to have a read of this. It's brutal, and it's well-written, and there's not a single ounce of romance in it.

 

It's also, genius. So much so that I sat up 'til half past midnight reading it, and got the second book on Kindle as soon as I'd finished (bear in mind I have to be up at 5am) because I can't wait for the paperback to get here.

 

Huge thumbs up, along with a warning that this one isn't for the faint of heart. I can't wait to see how the series progresses!
