About This Book

Two teens must learn the "art of killing" in this Printz Honor–winning book, the first in a chilling new series from Neal Shusterman, author of the New York Times bestselling Unwind dystology.
A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

Scythe is the first novel of a thrilling new series by National Book Award–winning author Neal Shusterman in which Citra and Rowan learn that a perfect world comes only with a heavy price.




Amazing and captivating

Scythe is an amazing and captivating book with all of its suspense, action, and rivalries. Throughout the book, I felt as if there was no boundary between me and the characters in the book and I was there at every moment and action. Neal Shusterman does an excellent job at keeping the reader captivated and entertained. The story and plot never disappointed me from the concept of ‘gleaning’ or killing, to the ending scene. The significant plot twists throughout the book always had me thinking and suspecting what would happen next. I would recommend this book to everyone and can’t wait to finish the series with the next 2 books.
