Publisher Description

“Intelligent and entertaining.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Even better than the first book.” —School Library Journal (starred review)

Rowan and Citra take opposite stances on the morality of the Scythedom, putting them at odds, in the chilling sequel to the Printz Honor Book Scythe from New York Times bestseller Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology.

Humans learn from their mistakes. I cannot. I make no mistakes.

The Thunderhead is the perfect ruler of a perfect world, but it has no control over the scythedom. A year has passed since Rowan had gone off grid. Since then, he has become an urban legend, a vigilante snuffing out corrupt scythes in a trial by fire. His story is told in whispers across the continent.

As Scythe Anastasia, Citra gleans with compassion and openly challenges the ideals of the “new order.” But when her life is threatened and her methods questioned, it becomes clear that not everyone is open to the change.

Old foes and new enemies converge, and as corruption within the Scythedom spreads, Rowan and Citra begin to lose hope. Will the Thunderhead intervene?

Or will it simply watch as this perfect world begins to unravel?

Thunderhead

A thrilling sequel to the original Scythe. It introduces more characters and brilliantly follows up others. Citra is a junior scythe under Scythe Curie and Citra continues to learn more about the scythedom and the forces corrupting it. Rowan is on the run from the scythedom, not only for his performance at the last conclave he attended, but for crimes against the scythedom he has committed. You meet Greyson Tolliver, dedicated to the Thunderhead, and learn more about regular people who live in the universe of Scythe.

It’s almost good

Well it’s hard to predict. I’ll give it that. Mostly because it’s really really bad. Unpredictably bad. Save your time, go read something better.
