I want you to know that I regard you highly—collectively and all here whom I know individually—and have great expectations for you. The highest compliment I can pay to you is that God has placed you here and now at this time to serve in his kingdom; so much is about to happen in which you will be involved and concerning which you will have some great influence. It is because you will face some remarkable challenges in your time; it is because the Church has ceased to be in the eyes of men a mere cultural oddity in the Mountain West and is now, therefore, a global church—a light which can no longer be hid; it is because you have a rendezvous with destiny that will involve some soul stretching and some pain that I have chosen to speak to you tonight about the implications of two things we accept sometimes quite casually. These realities are that God loves us and, loving us, has placed us here to cope with challenges which he will place before us. I believe with all my heart that because God loves us there are some particularized challenges that he will deliver to each of us.
In the prison's 'gen pop' they and the other prisoners successfully defeat their enemies sent - first the blacksuits, later two berserkers - and reach the main gate. They are finally free. Hearing the police sirens, Alex, Simon and Zee run for it while in Alex's mind there's Furnace's voice screaming I am coming for you. Trying to get as far away from the prison as possible, Alex, Zee and Simon hide first in a mall, later in the metro where they meet Lucy. After encountering some infected, Alex is bitten by a red-flecked berserker that causes him to teeter on the brink of insanity thanks also to Alfred Furnace's voice and visions - he wants Alex to be his right-hand man in the new 'Fatherland'.
Soon they realize that the city is in a state of chaos and destruction, a war between Furnace's infected and humanity.
After an attack of the infected in St Martin's Cathedral that Alex, Zee, Simon and Lucy survive, they are brought by Annabel and another soldier to a supposed safe place of PMCs, later revealed as the blacksuits.
During their short capture, Alex, Zee, Simon and Lucy discover another inconvenient truth: the red-flecked nectar has been created by Alfred Furnace and is more powerful than the warden's nectar, and the Furnace Penitentiary is not the only place where blacksuits are created. They decide to destroy Furnace's tower with Furnace and his creatures in it. When Alex comes to meet Furnace, he finds instead Warden Cross who fills himself with the red-flecked nectar.
He fights Alex but is eventually defeated. Drinking from Cross' blood, Alex becomes a berserker. On the tower's roof while the building's being bombarded Alex promises to find and kill Furnace. Execution[ edit ] Alex is brought by the army, along with Zee, Simon and Lucy, to St Margaret's hospital where he, Simon and other Furnace creatures are studied by Panettiere and others while the plague's spreading through and out of the country.
During the experiments, Alex drifts in and out of sleep where he experiences Furnace's memories. So Panettiere kills him but is resurrected by Sam. After Cross' death, Alex's considered Furnace's right-hand man, therefore, Sam and some berserkers help him and his friends to escape.
With Panettiere and her army on their heels they want to study Zee's immunity to the nectar , they spend the night in Alex's house, where he finds out that his parents haven't abandoned him as he remembers but have been trying to get him out of prison, and then they finally reach the island where Furnace is. At last, Alex meets Furnace who's still alive by being attached to a machine and wants Alex to be his heir - Alex is the only one who could handle the nectar and remember his history, and that's what the Stranger needs to survive.
He accepts Furnace's offer, in doing so Alex's nectar is replaced by the Stranger's blood in Furnace's veins. Furnace is turned to dust and the Stranger manipulates Alex in continuing the war. However, with his friends' support Alex ends it by killing all of Furnace's creatures, including Simon, through telepathic images of freedom and peace.
When Panettiere finally reaches them, she receives all of Alex's blood and dies while Alex's saved by receiving a nectar transfusion. Alex, Zee and Lucy are then brought to a military base where he's interrogated about what's happened. As time passes, the three of them and the whole world are trying to live a better, normal life, and Alex goes under the knife in order to become human again.
Main characters[ edit ] Alex Sawyer - The main protagonist, 14 years old. Although he's a teenager like others, he makes many bad choices: he becomes a bully with two other kids, a thief and a liar.
After a burglary, he is framed for the murder of his best friend and is sent to Furnace with no possibility of parole. With a bunch of inmates he tries to escape twice but fails. After the second attempt he is turned into a blacksuit and during a test to prove himself as a black suit, he kills Ozzie.
However, he remembers his name and he successfully makes the third escape along with all of the prisoners of Furnace. He's on the brink of insanity due to the nectar running through his veins, but with his friends' help he manages to stay true to himself. After the escape he's infected with a new type of nectar, defeats Warden Cross and is turned into a berserker. After escaping the army who wants the nectar for themselves, he kills Furnace by becoming his heir and receiving the stranger's blood in Furnace's veins.
He's in control of the war now but with his friends' help he manages to end it by killing all of Furnace's creatures. He then escapes Furnace. He is framed for driving into an older woman and prior to Furnace, he used to steal cars. He's immune to the nectar: to the warden in Death Sentence he's of no use he can't be turned into a blacksuit , while the army in Execution is very interested in him he could hold the key to the cure.
Carl Donovan - Alex's cellmate, 16 years old, one of the first to be brought to Furnace. At 11 years old he murders his mother's lover with a candlestick - he couldn't bear his mother's beatings. In Lockdown he acts as a guardian angel for Alex, although he doesn't want to admit it, and takes part in the escape plan until he is taken away in the blood watch.
In Solitary he is turned into a blacksuit and is killed by Alex. Throughout the whole series, Alex still thinks of him and has imaginary talks with him.
Simon Rojo-Flores - A failed mutant who assists Alex and Zee with and after their escape plan from the hole. He is sent to Furnace because he accidentally murders the owner of a jewelry store during a robbery. He dies at the end of Execution. Her father was a policeman who's been killed during the Summer of Slaughter, therefore, she hates them at first. Warden Cross - One of the main antagonists whose eyes are so full of madness, hatred and rancid glee that meeting them is like watching yourself die a million times over.
Since then he's regularly taken the nectar. In Furnace Penitentiary, he has control over the wheezers, blacksuits, prisoners and other creatures. However, the relationship with the gas phase is not obvious either. These results give an integrated picture, covering the entire heating cycle in the furnace as well as additional physico-chemical surface interactions.
Otherwise stated, not all the compounds, left in the furnace, will be present in the measuring cell. To some extent, the opposite holds true for the aerosol and LMMS. Depending on the partial pressure, some gas phase components will not enter the particulate phase. Instrumentation 2. The other instrumental parameters are set according to manufacturer recommendations. Tin atomic absorption signals are detected with background correction. The program of the HGA controller is shown in Table 1.
Argon is applied as inert gas. Perkin-Elmer graphite and pyrolytically coated tubes with platform are used and typically 10 ,ul is injected. Time resolved signals are calculated from peak heights at specific intervals after the start of the furnace atomisation cycle, except if indicated otherwise. Table 2 summarises the experimental conditions for the different samples.
Laser and mass spectrometer are mounted in transmission. The U. A detailed description is available . For elemental analysis, it is common practice to apply a relatively high power density. It has been shown that this procedure gives complex spectra with numerous recombination clusters, involving even trace contaminants.
Besides the decreased specificity, reproducibility becomes poor, primarily because several particles are removed by a single laser shot.
Moreover, isotope patterns become disturbed when the linear range of the detector circuitry is exceeded.
Therefore we have applied the experimental threshold regime protocol, originally elaborated for organic analysis . In practice, this procedure ensures the mass spectrometric reliability, for instance, with respect to mass resolution and calibration, and substantially reduces the variability.
Moreover, the importance of recombination clusters is decreased and the simple spectra with only a few but intense peaks permit a more direct correlation with the major components in the sampled microvolume.
The strictly respected dynamic range of the detecting system makes that isotope ratios S. WCER et al.
Sample consumption limited to single particles is mandatory. Thus a 1 pm particle typically allows up to three consecutive shots before it becomes completely evaporated. The features and general appearance of LMMS data critically depend on the actually applied experimental procedure.
This holds true in particular for measurements under threshold conditions. Hence, the results cannot be compared directly with literature data. Reference spectra obtained from analysis of pure products need to be recorded under these threshold conditions. Each sample is characterised by the analysis of at least 50 particles, yielding comparable spectra, even more, when mixtures are involved. The number of times that a given spectrum is obtained over the total number of shots allows an estimate of the major components, but not a real quantitative figure.
Typical working parameters are a beam current of 1 nA with 25 keV electron energy. Acquisition time is about s. Micrographs are taken from the secondary electron images in the scanning transmission mode. The Tracer Northern TN periphery allows computer-controlled operation of the microprobe. A TN interfaces computer and microprobe to control the motion of the electron beam and sample stage and to drive two wavelength-dispersive spectrometers.
For energy-dispersive X-ray measurements, the microprobe computer system is coupled to a triple port data memory for spectra accumulation. Sample preparation 2. LMMS analysis. Pure products are grinded between microscope slides. The fine particle fraction is collected on a formvar coated electron microscopy EM grid mesh by touching the powder. Particles of about 1 pm are selected for LMMS analysis.
Commercially available reagents are used without further purification. Smoke formation in the furnace is monitored to determine suitable sampling periods. Distance and duration are optimised to obtain an adequate grid loading, e. No additional preparation is required. A major problem is the damage of the polymer film, particularly when, e.
So far, the procedure used is primarily based on trial and error. Degradation of the supporting film is a general problem in transmission geometry LMMS. EMPA analysis. Aerosol samples are measured without carbon coating, hence permitting subsequent LMMS analysis.
Additional specimens are investigated with conducting layer. The furnace residue is analysed directly by mounting the graphite platform on the sample holder of the EMPA. SH,O, MgS0,. Study of reference compounds. LMMS is inherently destructive, hence, it is imposs- ible to record positive and negative ion detection mode mass spectra from the same micro- object. Especially for possibly heterogeneous aerosol samples, it has to be determined which polarity best suits the distinction between SnCl, and the probable decomposition products SnO and SnO,.
The mass spectra of the first compound looks extremely clean with intense and characteristic peaks, due to SnCl,.
Sensitivity is comparable for both polarities. The isotope intensities reasonably agree with the expected values. No diagnostic distinction can be made between SnO and SnO,. In the positive ion detection mode, the reproducibility of the high mass range clusters SnO.
Thus, none of the S. GUCER et al.
Moreover, the high sensitivity of these signals makes the detection of SnCl, or SnO, problematic, as a result of the limited dynamic range for detection. In conclusion, LMMS analyses of the reference compounds reveal that the negative ion detection mode is most appropriate to monitor the perhaps simultaneous presence of SnO, or SnC1, in the aerosol. Analysis of aerosols. It corresponds to the data in Fig.
Nearly all aerosols measured hence consist of SnCl, with no indication of SnO,. According to Ref. Surprisingly, the LMMS results point rather. This observation proves that there are no particular problems with the collection of the oxide form as suitable pm-size aerosols at high partial pressure. Otherwise stated, the absence of SnO, when SnCl, is heated has to do with the low abundance in the gas phase.
For practical reasons, the magnification for visual observation in LMMS is limited to about x. Hence, material in the pm-range comes close to the limit of observation by optical microscopy. So, it could be possible that SnO, is present in the very fine aerosol fraction of, for instance, less than O.
Therefore, the particle size distributions are verified with EMPA for diameters above 20 nm; it appears that even the smallest particle fractions consistently contain chlorine Fig. The aerosols, collected when SnO, suspensions were introduced in the furnace, only contain the Sn-signal Fig.
The comparable size distributions suggest that condensation of SnCl, and SnO, follow largely similar processes. LMMS of sulphates 3. Analysis of reference compounds. Speciation of these compounds in the positive ion detection mode is not obvious either. As a result, S. GOCERet al. The numbers refer to Cl l , Sn 2, 3 and Cu 4, 5. The latter signal is due to the support.
These clusters are also generated from organic sulphonates . The results for NazSO, are, for yet unknown reasons, less reproducible. The numbers refer to Sn 1, 2 and Cu 3,4. As a result, differentiation of sulphur containing salts is feasible for pure products. This potential becomes largely reduced for mixtures. It has to be noted that the negative ion detection mode mass spectra give no indication about the cations.
This can be compensated by the positive ion detection mode for pure products, not for mixtures, where sensitive contaminants such as sodium and potassium, due to contamination, may dominate over the actual counter ions.
Finally, it has been mentioned that the higher mass positive clusters, the equivalents to the sodium S. G0cp1 et al. Therefore, speciation in mixtures becomes difficult. We assign this disagreement to differences in local analysing conditions.
The critical dependence of laser microprobe mass spectra on pm-scale experimental parameters, often hard to describe, requires an extreme care, whenever comparison of data is attempted. Results can be summarised according to following classifi- cation of the mass spectra for sodium salts in the positive ion detection mode.
When sodium or potassium sulphates are injected into the furnace, superimposed mass spectra of the previous types are obtained Fig. The relative abundance of characteristic peaks points to mixtures, consisting of class I and II.
There are no indications for class III.
Typical examples are shown in Fig. Thus partial oxidation of sulphides can be concluded. For identification purposes, high resolution is desirable to maintain the fine Characterisation of aerosols by EMPA and LMMS structure, but this would imply an extensive and unpractical number of successive runs. Besides, the gradually changing physico-chemical properties of the graphite material make long-term comparability problematic. Hence, the spectrum is characterised using 1Onm intervals.
For the sake of brevity, the discussion will be confined to the results for tin chloride, oxide and sulphate. Interpretation is attempted by comparing the time dependence of absorption at a given wavelength with the atomic tin lines. According to literature data, the latter maxima are as follows with relative absorption noted between brackets : The first profile of SnCl, in Fig. Under these conditions, no SnO, should be present in the measuring cell.
The latter can be related with atomic tin. Later on, the spectra of SnCl, become dominated by the atomic tin signals Fig. However, using the time-resolved spectra, obtained when SnO, suspensions are heated in the furnace, it is possible to extract somewhat more information for the case of SnCl,. Indeed, the absorption around nm in Fig. This observation is not confirmed by LMMS data on the corresponding aerosol.
We see this is not as a contradiction between the two methods, but as an illustration of the ultimate problem, when linkage of molecular absorption to the LMMS data is attempted. Indeed, the actual physical meaning of results, possibilities and limitations of each method have to be considered. Time-resolved background absorption spectra for SnCI,. The signals a refer to the ashing stage and bHd to the indicated times of the atomisation step. Time-resolved background absorption spectra for SnO, suspensions.
Time dependency of the absorption signal as a function of the wavelength for SnCI,. In this respect, molecular absorption may extend measurement capabilities to minor constituents. Another point of interest from time-resolved background absorption spectra is illustrated in Fig.
The major contribution to the total absorption in the measuring cell is associated with atomic tin, which is, however, not identified in the aerosol. There are several possible explanations for this observation. In addition, it can be expected that condensation leads to a preferential incorporation into the smallest particles, not amenable to LMMS. Time-resolved absorption spectrum for SnSO,. So far, we do not have experimental evidence about the fact that atomic tin is a long-lived species, capable of escaping the measuring cell.
The complementary nature of data from LMMS, on the one hand, and background absorption, on the other, is nicely illustrated by the example of SnSO, in Fig.
In spite of the fact that laser microprobe speciation is not possible here, the results described already lead to a better understanding of the absorption spectrum. Indeed, elemental tin lines nm dominate and the SnO, related signal at nm is rather weak. Nevertheless, the former technique provides interesting speciation possibilities. Microprobe techniques are not trace methods, allowing detection down to the ppb or ppt level, but their prime asset concerns the drastic scale reduction of the sample consumption.
Thus a total amount of the order of a few pg is sufficient for LMMS analysis. This opens the possibility to study aerosols as a way to obtain information about the gas phase. Traditional analyses require so many consecutive ETAAS runs that the physico-chemical changes in the furnace surface properties cannot be neglected anymore.
For convenience, our findings are summarised in Table 3. LMMS suits determination of the chemical nature for the principal component in aerosols. Particulates, collected from the emanating smoke, give adequate samples for transmission LMMS with a suitable size distribution in the 1 ,um range and quite reproducible composition. LMMS is less compatible with very heterogeneous samples. In practice, characterisation of more than a few hundred particles becomes unrealistic. So, automated EMPA is particularly interesting to obtain a general survey of the sample and to assess local homogeneity.
Table 3. The larger magnification permits it to study fine particles beyond the range of optical microscopy. Speciation capabilities are inferior to LMMS and, in our case, information is confined to elements with atomic number above Hence, the oxygen content of salts cannot be determined adequately. Finally, molecular absorption spectra remain unique to deal directly with the gas phase inside the cell, but the interpretation of the data strictly depends on the support from other techniques to back up assignments.
At this point, we like to draw attention to a few essential aspects, relevant to the presently explored methodology. First, the study of gas phase components by LMMS analysis of the escaping particulates is a one-side test: compounds identified in the condensed phase are a significant indication for constituents inside the measuring cell, but this approach does not apply vice versa. Spectrometric detection is based on selectivity at a particular wavelength and hence, the most useful signals do not necessarily issue from the most abundant gas phase components.
Secondly, aerosol collection does not yet permit the same sub-second time resolution as achieved in AAS. Hence, microprobe analysis of the particulate matter gives an integrated composition. The use of a shutter and repetitive sampling during consecutive ETAAS runs could be profitable on the condition that some species are really principal components during short time intervals.
Otherwise, the problems of detection limits and dynamic range cannot be circumvented. At the present state of art, micro- analytical techniques cannot deal with this ultimate situation and require, in practice, high amounts of analyte, of the order of up to times more than used in any practical AAS situations.
The atomisation behaviour under such conditions obviously becomes different in comparison to the normal situation [
