Neal Shusterman’s chilling new novel, Scythe, the first in a brand new series, is FINALLY on sale! If you haven’t heard about it, let me give you the rundown: in a futuristic Utopian society where disease, war, poverty, and even old age have been eradicated, controlling population growth is left to a small group of reapers called called scythes who “glean” (a.k.a. kill) people at random. Teens Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. Throughout their apprenticeship, they’re forced to master the “art” of taking life and as they learn how to kill, they also begin to develop feelings for each other—feelings that become all the more complicated when they learn that only one will be chosen to become a scythe…and their first task will be to glean the other.
Doesn’t that just sound awesome?! If you’re intrigued, Scythe is currently an extended excerpt until December 5th, so take a look before it’s gone! And if you still need convincing (or just want to watch something really cool), check out this excellent book trailer!
