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!

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.

OMG WOW!

I can't wait for book three! The amazing twists and turns in the plot left me at the edge of my seat for the whole end of the story. I audibly gasped, and my jaw dropped open several times. Neal Shusterman is a master of plot twists. A must read! Even better than the first and that is very rare!

Not as good as the first one

The 1st book in the Scythe arc was SO GOOD that I was disappointed that the 2nd one wasn't as good. There was far too much focus on a new character Greyson and less on the main characters of the 1st book (Citra, Rowan, Faraday). I just hate that the villain *SPOILER ALERT* was revived with Tyger's body (RIP partyboy). I just can't take Goddard seriously with him sounding so much like the partyboy. The narrator did a fabulous job though. The ending left a lot to be desired but hopefully the third book will tie up the loose ends.
