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.

  • 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.
  • The most thrilling book I've ever read

    By Pikadavis
    If you are seeking a mystery novel with suspense and romance, this is the book for you. Scythe is filled with witty characters that keep the story interesting. With each chapter came a hint to solve the real mystery in life, and immortality. Personally, I adored this book because once in a while everyone needs a book about death and how our future may turn out.
