Scythe Faraday picks Rowen and Citra to be his apprentice so there training was about to begin and they would have to compete against each other for scythe hood and the person who is beaten goes back to live with there family but a relationship forms between them.
In spring conclave comes Rowen and Citra do there tests and fall to help each other out but since they did that Sythe godard says that since Scythe Faraday has 2 apprentices that in winter conclave they should kill the loser between them so Scythe Faraday disagrees and later kills himself so Citra and Rowen would not have to kill the loser since they won't be a pretences
Instead of going home Citra and Rowan get new Scythes has there teachers Rowen got Scythe Godard and Citra got Scythe Currie and the will be taught by these teachers for winter conclave and while Citra is being taught she found out that someone must have killed Scythe faraday and tries to figure out who did it
at summer conclave Rowen breaks Citras neck so he would fall the test and later on for there training they go and train more then later the Scythe dom thinks Cirta killed Farada but it turns out Faraday is still alive. and was living in the amazons and Cita goes to find him but after her name was cleaned by Sycthe Currie
Rowen goes insane with Scythe Godard when he makes him kill real peaple and they were killing a giant group of cultist. There were thousands of them then his only friend on Goddard's team killed himself so later Rowen killed the rest of Goddard's team including Goddard and Bared it under fire and ash so they could not be resurrected and then came winter conclave.
When winter conclave came Citra had to kill Rowen since she won but first she had to call herself a new Scythe name and she called herself Anastasia so Anastasia grabbed a bowie knife and before stabbing him she punched him and his blood got on the Scythe ring which was DNA and if the DNA goes on the ring they cant be killed for a year.
