The Toll (#3 Arc of a Scythe)
|Series:||Arc of a Scythe|
The explosive conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Arc of a Scythe series.
It’s been three years since Rowan and Citra disappeared; since Scythe Goddard came into power; since the Thunderhead closed itself off to everyone but Grayson Tolliver. In this pulse-pounding finale to Neal Shusterman's internationally bestselling trilogy, constitutions are tested and old friends are brought back from the dead.
Of Scythe: "Pretty much a perfect teen adventure novel [...] Over the years, I've heard many books touted as the successor to Hunger Games, but Scythe is the first one that I would really, truly stand behind, as it offers teens a complementary reading experience to that series rather than a duplicate one. Like Hunger Games, Scythe invites readers to both turn pages quickly but also furrow their brows over the ethical questions it asks [...] It asks enough difficult questions to stick in the mind, but it never asks them at the expense of pacing or story." Maggie Stiefvater on Scythe.
"No one does doom like Neal Shusterman – the breathtakingly jagged brink of apocalypse is only overshadowed by the sense that his dystopias lie just below the surface of readers’ fragile reality." Kirkus Reviews
