The future is now. Inequality and suffering have been eliminated, and death is a fairy tale most can only imagine. But with the reward of immortality also comes the necessity of population control, and so the Scythes exist to glean a small portion of the population without bias or malice. But after hundreds of years a dark disease has infiltrated the Scythedom, and apprentices Citra and Rowan must fight the corruption or risk being swallowed by it. A fresh and fascinating perspective on utopia mixed with the human condition.
