Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe (Arc of a Scythe, #1)

I have finally read this book!! I was waiting for the series to be completely out before starting. Although, now I’m nervous about the ending. Anyways, lets get to this book!

Wow! What a great book! If you are in a funk, pick this one up. The world building is so amazing. I mean, it’s such a refreshing and new concept. To introduce a new world like that and not make it confusing or an information overload, is impressive. It kept me on my toes and I had such a hard time putting this down. It was so fast paced and I appreciated that.

I loved the characters in this book. I love how we have two people, who are so different, kind of competing for their life. It was so interesting to see their thought process and how they dealt with it. I loved that we get each of their POV’s. I loved Rowan’s clever mind and Cythra’s sassy personality. I think for it being just the first book, they both had amazing character growth! The supporting characters are really great too.

One of my issues and it’s a small one… is that towards the end we skip A LOT. There’s a lot of crazy going on and we don’t really get any of it. It kind of skips a huge chunk of time and I would have loved to know more about each of the journeys that were happening at that time.

Overall, this was a great read. I flew through it and I really am craving more. I am so glad to finally read this book. It’s been one that has been recommended to me so many times. I get why it was so hyped! I know that a lot of people have been saying this is the best in the series but I can’t wait for book two!


Have you read Scythe or is it still on your TBR?
