Thou shalt kill.

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.

Comments on: "Scythe (Arc of the Scythe) – Neal Shusterman" (2)

  1. A book that I’ve loved over lockdown this year was ‘The Scythe’. The book has a great concept and is really interesting. It is about two teens set in a world where the only way that you can die is if you get gleaned by a scythe. It is thrilling and unique and very intriguing. I rate this book an 8/10.


  2. What if death was the only thing left to control…
    SCYTHE is a book that you’ll never forget. In an ever-nearing future, the only way to die is to be ‘gleaned’ by a scythe. A person that stands out more than a flame in the darkness with their colourful cloaks and rings. When Citra and Rowan become scythe apprentices their lives change forever, in more ways that one. No sane human aims to be a scythe but that is what makes Citra and Rowan perfect for the role. They have to learn all the arts of killcraft, assist their mentor Scythe Faraday in his daily gleanings and attend the conclaves three times a year.

    And then they find out, one of them will have to glean the other.
