Shusterman does a masterful job weaving together and wrapping up all the various plot lines that Scythe and Thunderhead introduced, while keeping readers on the edge of their seats. There are villains to hate, heroes to cheer for, AI to puzzle over, morally ambiguous characters to wonder about, and no one is safe from the scythe's blade. An incredible ending to a brilliant series!

“A furiously paced finale that reaches for the stars.” —Kirkus Reviews “Gripping.” —School Library Journal (starred review) “Stellar.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
In the highly anticipated finale to the New York Times bestselling trilogy, dictators, prophets, and tensions rise. In a world that’s conquered death, will humanity finally be torn asunder by the immortal beings it created?
Citra and Rowan have disappeared. Endura is gone. It seems like nothing stands between Scythe Goddard and absolute dominion over the world scythedom. With the silence of the Thunderhead and the reverberations of the Great Resonance still shaking the earth to its core, the question remains: Is there anyone left who can stop him?
The answer lies in the Tone, the Toll, and the Thunder.
