Summary

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 best seller Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology.

The Thunderhead cannot interfere in the affairs of the Scythedom. All it can do is observe — it does not like what it sees.

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.

Will the Thunderhead intervene?

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

What a roller coaster!!!

Like any book, there are good and bad moments. Times when it’s impossible to put this book down, and times when you’re anticipating the next whirlwind. I have read hundreds or fantasy books and this one has such a great ending, my jaw dropped. Well done Mr. Shusterman.

I love everything

This is one of the most enjoyable pieces of fiction I have ever encountered in my entire life. The plot keeps surprising me, going to places I would have never dreamed of. I’m am internally screaming about the last few chapters, and I’m already longing for the rest of the story!

Wow! A blockbuster book

I don’t know if there is such a thing as a blockbuster book if there is, then this is it.

The first book was incredible and you must read it first to understand the concept of the storyline. This second installment was just outstanding. It had an amazing, action-packed and riveting storyline that ended with a cliffhanger that had me gnashing my teeth for more.

I don’t think I have stated this before in any of my other reviews but I daresay that this is one of the best books I’ve read all year.

Bravo Mr. Shusterman - if all your books are this great- I’ll be purchasing them all tonight.

Another wonderful book!

I enjoyed this audiobook just as much as the first one. Loved the story line, and the voice of the reader. Can’t wait for the next book.

A wonderful mid-series pivot.

I demoted the story to 4 stars only because they made a vital character (SL) temporarily stupid to move the plot along. Once I got over that 3 sentence disappointment, it went back to being epically enjoyable. Can’t wait for book 3.

My boyfriend is deployed at the moment and we decided to listen to audio books together while he was gone. This series came highly recommended and it's SO worth it. 100% recommended

Enjoyable read, some pronunciation oddities

Great book, but the narrator pronounces some words in an odd manner, which takes away from the story.

Gaaahhhhhh!!!!

Okay. I just finished this book while sitting at my desk at work, and I feel like subsequently kicking my coworker in the face and shaking them while sobbing. I mean, I’m not particularly fond of this person, but it’s usually not this bad between us. I seriously just went through a ride in a plane and got pushed out without a chute. I need MORE!

So there obviously has to be another book coming in the series. It’s not exactly unpredictable, but full of tiny surprises in the means to the ends. Yes: there are lots of “ends.” I don’t even want to write a true review as I simply cannot without going through 1,000 spoilers.

Just. Read. It. (Or listen to it...)
