Alex Sawyer has escaped his underground nightmare to discover that the whole world has become a horrible prison run by his nemesis, Alfred Furnace, and only Alex can stop him, even if that makes him the executioner.

In “Execution,” the joys of freedom still weren’t in the cards for Alex and his friends, as Alfred Furnace’s war against humanity raged all around them.

In the book Execution, Alex, Zee, Simon, and Lucy are taken by the military and experimented on. The are most interested in Zee who is 'immune' the nectar. Alex drifts off and sees Furnaces live in the orchard . Finally they escape the millinery and head to the tower were Furnace is. As they escape, Penitentiary tries to kill them. The military follows them to the tower. Alex makes it to Furnace and he is hooked up to a big machine. Furnace convinces Alex to take his place and he accepts. Now he can control everyone with nectar in its blood. When Zee comes, he convinces Alex to stop and end the war. After a while Alex accepts and then Penitentiary takes all of Alex's blood and she dies. They go back to the military and Alex goes under the knife and becomes human again. Once he is human he tells the story of his life and that's how the book was written.

I would rate this book a 4 1/2 because this one was full of action. I liked the twist in the end of the book. I am glad that Alex became human again and not die like in the Divergent series. Overall, this series wasn't the best written, but it definitely kept me interested throughout all of the books. I am sad that some of my favorite characters died like Toby, Donovan, and Simon. I would recommend it and I'm sad that it's over. ( )
