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.
