Book Synopsis

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.

    As an adult and after reading the introduction to this book, I was afraid I wouldn’t follow or like it. But because I love this author I kept reading. I was hooked by ch 3. I love dystopian fiction, and this without intending to be I think, feels very much that way. It’s unique and tender and brutal and imaginative and suspenseful. I really really can’t find a book I haven’t liked from this author!
  • This is probably my favorite book I have ever read

  • A Good Stereotype

    By Supercalifragalisticexp.......
    Undoubtedly another stereotypical YA novel where a girl with a drastic destiny meets an attractive boy, both of whom become extremely skilled in combat and fight injustice. I was disappointed by this - I had hoped the book would be something more than that. Nevertheless, I still did very much enjoy it, and my disappointment was lessened slightly by the lack of romantic interaction. Important, psychological and philosophical themes were heavily touched on, and the book did a fantastic job of blending elements of both fantasy and science-fiction together.
