I read SCYTHE because of Scifi July and I absolutely loved it! The concept, the world-building, the writing and the story. It ticked all the boxes! Read my review and then grab yourself a copy to read!
Oppression and racism is real in our world - for some more so than for others - and this book shows us how things could be. How we don't want things to be. How things already are in some places. Read it, is all I have to say.
