Dear Neal Shusterman & Scythe,
Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe’s apprentice. And when it becomes clear that the winning apprentice’s first task will be to glean the loser, Citra and Rowan are pitted against one another in a fight for their lives.Goodreads
Reapers, guys! How can you not find reapers so fascinating? Here are teenagers who are being trained to essentially become the Grim Reaper. They will learn to kill, and I’m fascinated by how that will be portrayed. How does one become chosen to be an apprentice? What do they learn during their apprenticeship? How do they kill? I have so many questions! I’ve heard that this book has great world-building, and I hope I like it. The whole professional reapers (“scythes”) reminds me a bit of Dead Like Me, only the reaping business.
