The gods of the Myriad were as real as the coastlines and currents, and as merciless as the winds and whirlpools. Then one day they rose up and tore each other apart, killing many hundreds of islanders and changing the Myriad forever.

On the jumbled streets of the Island of Lady’s Crave live Hark and his best friend Jelt. They are scavengers: living off their wits, diving for relics of the gods, desperate for anything they can sell. But now there is something stirring beneath the waves, calling to someone brave enough to retrieve it.

Something valuable. Something dangerous. Nothing is quite as it seems, and when the waves try to claim Jelt, Hark will do anything to save him.

Even if it means compromising not just who Jelt is, but what he is . . .

This is a clever and intelligent book dealing with a very difficult subject matter. I would recommend it to adult readers as well as YA. There are some explicit details in the book which some parents may prefer younger YA readers to stay away from.

It looked like love. It felt like love. But this isn’t a love story.

Amelie fell hard for Reese. And she thought he loved her too. But she’s starting to realise that real love isn’t supposed to hurt like this.

So now she’s retracing their story, revisiting all the places he made her cry. Because if she works out what went wrong, perhaps she can finally learn how to get over him.

Imogen says: “YA is always my hardest pick – I read so much of it and love so many (and honorary mention to Maggie Stiefvater’s Call Down the Hawk which I read only a day after finishing the Scythe series and ALMOST got this years pick) but the Arc of a Scythe really blew me away.

It’s unlike anything I’ve ever read – instead of a dystopian, government controlling world, Scythe is set in a perfect utopia. Illness has been cured, there is world peace – all watched over by the all-knowing Thunderhead, a Super AI that cares for the world and all its people. And nope – before you start thinking ‘oh, no, evil computer AI controlling everything!’ it really really doesn’t go there.

Instead, with illness being non-existent (and war and crime…), death too has been irradicated. The Thunderhead can bring the dead back to life – but to stop the world being overcrowded, the most moral people in the world are tasked with being Scythes – hired to kill randomly to keep the population down.

Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been selected to be scythes’ apprentices, and despite wanting nothing to do with the vocation, they must learn the art of killing and understand the necessity of what they do. Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe’s apprentice and as Citra and Rowan come up against a terrifyingly corrupt Scythedom, it becomes clear that the winning apprentice’s first task will be to glean the loser.

The first book is awesome, the second even better, and the third takes you to heights even I wasn’t expecting. It is a brilliant series – and the box set cover art is pretty cool too!”

The Arc of Sythe Boxed Set is available for £23.97.
