Mr. Smith, you've done it again! This beautifully crafted book is the last book the the Furnace series. It's an explosive (literally) endgame, and only one can survive. It's not as thrilling or as saddening as the other four, and I can kind of detect him writing this in a hurry, just to get it done. It doesn't go as in-depth as the others, however it is still amazing.
It does have a bunch of blood and gore, as well as medium swearing, so I wouldn't recommend this book to below seventh graders. If you think you are mature and have a stomach for blood, gore, and a ripped-up childhood, this series is for you!
