by 
Alexander Gordon Smith

Escape from Furnace Series by Alexander Gordon Smith
Includes: Lockdown, Solitary, Death Sentence, Fugitives (Available in 2012), 
and Execution (Available in 2012).

Goodreads Blurb:
Furnace Penitentiary: the world’s most secure prison for young offenders, buried a mile beneath the earth’s surface. Convicted of a murder he didn’t commit, sentenced to life without parole, “new fish” Alex Sawyer knows he has two choices: find a way out, or resign himself to a death behind bars, in the darkness at the bottom of the world. Except in Furnace, death is the least of his worries. Soon Alex discovers that the prison is a place of pure evil, where inhuman creatures in gas masks stalk the corridors at night, where giants in black suits drag screaming inmates into the shadows, where deformed beasts can be heard howling from the blood-drenched tunnels below. And behind everything is the mysterious, all-powerful warden, a man as cruel and dangerous as the devil himself, whose unthinkable acts have consequences that stretch far beyond the walls of the prison. 
Together with a bunch of inmates—some innocent kids who have been framed, others cold-blooded killers—Alex plans an escape. But as he starts to uncover the truth about Furnace’s deeper, darker purpose, Alex’s actions grow ever more dangerous, and he must risk everything to expose this nightmare that’s hidden from the eyes of the world.
To celebrate the upcoming release of  this teen horror series (which I recommend for grades 7 and up), I've been given the opportunity to give a copy awayThank you, Macmillan!

Absolutely smashing. :)

I'd love to go into the running for the giveaway. I've been looking into buying Lockdown off of Book Depository for a while now.

I love how teen fiction for kids is getting legitimately scary now - they love a good fright!

This sounds like something my nieces would like. (Also, the linky to the trailer isn't working - for me, anyway.)

Have a great weekend!
