About the Book

Scythe (Arc of a Scythe)

Two teens are forced to murder --- maybe each other --- in 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.
