Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken it upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In year since Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes—not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent. He is thi dark folk hero now— “ Scythe Lucifer ” —a vigilante taking down corrupt scythes in flames.

Citra, now a junior scythe under Scythe Curie, sees the corruption and wants to help change it from the inside out, but is thwarted at every turn, and threatened by the “ new order ” scythes. Realizing she can not do this alone—or even with the elp of Scythe Curie and Faraday, she does the unthinkable, and risks being “ deadish ” so she can communicate with the Thunderhead—the only being on earth wise enough to solve the dire problems of a perfect world. But will it help solve those problems, or simply watch as perfection goes into decline?

im pretty sure i am in the minority when i ay that i didnt think this was better than scythe, but i didnt think it was worse either.

im so very excited to see how he series will continue.

i was pleading with everyone to see that the reason he is thi way he is was because he was forcibly placed in a horrible environment and his behavio is a product of needing to survive.

i swear, the ext book better have rowan healthy and happy, or else i will start another petition.

Despite that I did n't enjoy Thunderhead EXACTLY as much as Scythe, I appreciate he book itself is nearly flawless and one of the greatest YA books on the market.

As my favorite part of book one was the world, I ’ m very pleased with how it has continued to develop through the sequel.Thunderhead introduces a new main character named Grayson into the story who we follow through some previously uncharted territory.

he ending absolutely made up for al of my lesser-favorite parts of the book.Overall, I enjoyed Thunderhead.

Th cover makes you want to ead a book only if you ar no idea what he book is about.

In his case you can judge a book by its cover! A fantastic continuation of the story from book one; I would b to say it is always etter than the irst.

Anothe poe has done a great job of carrying the story over, keeping it fresh, keeping it creative, and not losing any momentum.

( i.e. Empire Strikes Back is to Star Wars: A New Hope as Thunderhead is to Scythe).

Please, I wan a disgusting and brutal end for him.

( hide spoiler) ] I ca n't wait to see what Shusterman 's brilliant mind has come up with for book three.

How will everything be resolved in the fourth book?! I thought I could review this, but I ca n't really.
