  • Exceptionally enjoyable.

    This series has been a joy to read from start to finish and this final instalment is everything I needed it to be! One of my favourite things about this book is that the layout is a little unconventional and so it keeps your attention rapt. The story covers a wider length of time than in the previous two books, so the story is split into parts. Each chapter alternates between different characters and what they’re getting up to, prefaced by a snippet of either historical documents related to the chapter or conversations with the Thunderhead. It’s this touch that makes the series so fun to read, in my opinion. There’s less of a focus on Rowan and Citra in this book, which I appreciate because it means that the story that regards the fate of all of humanity rests in the hands of a larger group of people rather than just two teenagers. Everyone that’s been introduced in the cast of characters has a role to play in this and the clever plotting that the author has laid down reaches an explosive conclusion. This story contains several dystopian themes, which I find really fascinating. The central one seems to be ‘power corrupts’, and there are so many examples of this throughout the book as well as the ways that some characters are able to wield power without becoming total monsters. The ripple effects of all of the choices of these powerful characters is what causes humanity’s current predicament. As endings go, I don’t think I could have asked for anything more satisfactory. It was unexpected, suspenseful and leaves room for future stories if the author wants to expand. This series is something to be enjoyed by readers of all ages (from teens up, it’s probably a bit heavy with all the semi-graphic murder for younger readers even if I totally would have read this before the age of 10), it manages to convey a very complex story and lines of thought in a compelling series of books.

  • AMAZING!!

    The Toll is the thrillilng conclusion to a three book series full of fantasy, thrills, drama and most of all, full of pure genious! I took 13 hours to read this, and loved every single second of it! I HIGHLY recommend the 'Scythe' series to readers, and you will certainly enjoy the genious conclusion.

  • Wow.

    I won't hold this back: this series has become my favourite, after the Hunger Games and the Gone series. It was such an enjoyable read. I loved how the author found a proper conclusion, instead of making up some rubbish about Goddard destroying everything blah blah blah... It left room for you to really think about the ideal circumstances and all that. There's room for future expansions after that ending if the author really wanted to work on it. I felt that Scythe was a little behind in the scheme of the series, it just wasn't as enjoyable as it could have been, but then it turned out it was jusr setting the scene for Thunderhead and The Toll. Even though I would probably have read it at age 8, I think that a good age to read it would be about 11-17. Anyway, I think I would rate this book 9.5/10 and the series 10.1/10

    Thanks for your feedback!
