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.

* "The stellar conclusion to Shusterman’s Arc of a Scythe trilogy is a gripping adventure that never stops building momentum."
– Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW, October 28, 2019
"A stunning and entirely satisfying ending... Breathless action sequences will appeal to readers more inclined toward an adrenaline rush, while thought-provoking interrogations of love, religion, humanity, and technology will intrigue fans of more contemplative dystopias."
