Thou shalt kill.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. 
Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own. 

The Review: I was really excited to read Scythe. It’s a series that I have seen around the since it first released and so I’ve always been curious to see why so many others love this series. I’m a big fan of dystopian books so anything that is compared to The Hungers Games is definitely worth my time. Sycthe is an exciting story with an interesting concept and full of shocking revelations that will keep you turning the pages.

Readers will also love that they have the chance to see all points of the story from the two main characters as well as the bad guys. I really enjoyed all points of view, although some are harder to swallow than others and the way the author describes the gleaming’s is very imaginative and can pull on your emotions especially when the mass gleaming’s take place. 

Rowan and Citra were both likable characters who at times were a little boring. I enjoyed the story more when they were together more and I really do wish there was more romance in this story than there was. It definitely would have added to the forbidden romance element more. 

In all, Sycthe was an interesting read and I look forward to reading the next book.

My name is Karina, I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through all my life a weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing  the internet searching on how i could be transformed into a powerful when i came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a  VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Vampirelord7878@gmail.com

Drug Rehab aims at freeing individuals from drug abuse and reinstating them to a normal lifestyle. There are two major arenas of drug treatment, behavioral therapies and medical therapies. Behavioral therapy includes counselors and support groups. Medical therapies include treatment with prescription drugs, such as methadone, to suppress craving from opiates like heroin. Research shows that a combination of both therapies must be used to evolve a suitable program for the patient. Specific areas that must be addressed include: detoxification (coming off the drug if physically addicted) and preventing relapse for longer-term Rehab.

Putlocker may be a seamless portal for television, series, movies, songs, etc. for free. it's not mainly for any film or language, from Hollywood to Bollywood, one can have access to each possible movie. In fact, unlike other portals who operate completely illegally, Putlocker has an official site named Putlocker.com that a broad base of individuals is mad.

For the official content recorded, over 1.6 million people worldwide made access to it portal on a per-day basis. because of the piracy issues, it faced a report by motion picture Association of America, which led to its pack up by the united kingdom court Order. it had been considered together of the highest 250 sites visited by the people worldwide. Although, thanks to its massive fan base, Putlockers remains operated under different proxy websites.
