Alex, Zee and Simon have made it out of Furnace Penitentiary and are on the run, but find they’ve escaped into a City of Terror instead of the freedom for which they’d long hoped.

In the book Fugitives Alex, Zee, and Simon escape from the prison. They run as the Swat team and all of Furnace's creatures are on their heels. As they try to figure out what is going on, they find a red-spotted nectar. Now every time a berserker, rat, or black suit bite someone they turn into a creature. As the plague spreads it infects the whole city and spreads to the world. As they try to fight of the creatures they meet Lusy. Lusy and Zee end up falling in love and she joins them on the journey to killing Furnace and ending the war. They make it to the tower where Furnace is supposed to be. Alex runs and meets the Warden. After a big fight Alex kills the Warden and he drinks the Warden's blood and becomes a berserker and he promises to kill Furnace once and for all.

I would rate this book a 3 or 4 because I liked it but not as much as the others. There was a lot of action and I found it very interesting. I like the twists and the way the events are placed in the book. I also think that Lucy is a good character for Zee. Like I said about the other Furnace books, it's not for very young kids. But I would still recommend it. So far I have liked this series very much. I don't think it is my favorite but it is probably in my top 5. So if you like adventure books, read this book! ( )

This is such an amazing series. Out of all four of the (soon to be) five books, this is my least favorite. That is not to say it isn't good though. It really is...however, this book does not take place in the prison like the other three did. I spins the story a bit and I liked the author's idea, but, like I said it wasn't my favorite of the whole awesome series. That being said, can't wait for five, this one ends crazy. 8/10 ( )
