Product description

“A true successor to The Hunger Games.” Maggie Stiefvater

In a perfect world, what is there left to fear? A chilling and thought-provoking sci-fi novel from New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman.

A dark, gripping and witty thriller in which the only thing humanity has control over is death.

In a world where disease, war and crime have been eliminated, the only way to die is to be randomly killed (“gleaned”) by professional scythes. Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been selected to be scythes’ apprentices, and despite wanting nothing to do with the vocation, they must learn the art of killing and understand the necessity of what they do.

Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe’s apprentice and as Citra and Rowan come up against a terrifyingly corrupt Scythedom, it becomes clear that the winning apprentice’s first task will be to glean the loser.

    Scythe

    I am terrible with paying attention to anything I'm reading but this book kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time, the author really fleshed out all of the characters making me cry and laugh with them on almost every page. They created a new world that I can't stop thinking about, they left little Easter eggs along the way that made me turn back again and again to past pages just to relive it with a new perspective.
