Ein Einzigartiges Setting in einer scheinbaren Utopie. Citra und Rowan werden von Scythe Faraday zu seinen Lehrlingen auserwählt. Doch natürlich läuft nicht alles, wie geplant, neue Probleme tauchen auf, Geheimnisse kommen ans Licht.

Ein spannender Auftakt zu der Scythe Trilogie von Neal Shusterman. Und klare Leseempfehlung!

DNF, it was so boring I tried multiple times to get into the story and nothing about it drew me in.

I enjoyed the premise and the adult characters, but the protagonists never felt like their own characters. Rowan complained about feeling like he wasn't present during the mass gleanings, but I felt that way about Citri and Rowan for most of the book; I don'tmind sparse writing styles, but this seemed to speed through too much. The two characters with the most chemistry were only in the same room once (and it certainly wasn't Rowan and Citri); the forced romance between the protags was unbelievable, as it was just "he was a boy, she was a girl, here they are standing by each other."
All of that to still say that there's potential in the series, and I might still consider reading the next book. I've certainly read much worse YA dystopias!
