This is the fourth book in a series. In this book Alex, Zee, and Simon escaped from a high security prison named Furnace. Alex is the main character. He has super human powers. In the book Alex is on a mission to find out the deepest secrets about the man who built the prison and invented nectar. Workers in the prison inject prisoners with nectar. The nectar is not something you want in your system because it gives you super human powers, but can have serious side effects. Being locked up in the Furnace has damaged Alex forever. The reviewer found it to be a bit graphic.
