Review: Scythe

Scythe Scythe by Neal Shusterman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Citra and Rowan were just your average teens living in a world where humanity has evolved and there is no suffering, death, disease, war, etc. But in a world without death, the population must be maintained. Scythes are the sole purveyors of death - it's their job - and they end lives with a purpose and guidelines (at least they're supposed to). When the Honorable Scythe Faraday has chance encounters with both Citra and Rowan, he sees something in them and invites them to be his apprentices. With a year of guidance and teaching, they will have the opportunity to become Scythes and continue to fulfill this sacred duty, but they soon realize that not all Scythes are honorable, and such power comes with a hefty price.

This first book in the Arc of the Scythe trilogy will have readers clamoring for the sequels (Thunderhead - book 2 and The Toll - book 3).
