Publisher's 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!

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.

Possibly even better than the last one.

Maybe because I had a stronger stomach (had desensitized somewhat) after the first novel, or perhaps because there was less focus on 'gleaning', I enjoyed the book even more than the last one. Can't wait for the third instalment.

simply amazing

I absolutely loved this book. The first book was intriguing and the second book has been just as enjoyable. I loved everything about it from the narrator, to the character development, and all the way to up the ending. I can't wait until the next book comes out!

Loved it besides the cliffhanger

I loved it and it is great for long road trips. The narrator uses great voices as well. The only problem was the cliffhanger in the end. With the voices and the performance it really improved the emotional connection with the characters as well. 👍

Amazing, utterly amazing. I have no words. What a spectacle to behold. Neal's world and Greg's performance is one of a kind.
