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.
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?

While I really enjoyed Scythe and thought it had many interesting ideas, it never managed to surprise me. Thunderhead had enough twists and turns to keep me on my toes, and I appreciated the windows into the Thunderhead's "mind" at the beginning of each chapter (filling the same role as the journal entries in Scythe).

I very much look forward to the third book in this series. (The end of this one makes it very clear that there must be a third book.)

whAT. WHAT?!? I can't even comprehend this book. My mind is boggled. I did enjoy Scythe, but didn't love it, and went into this with somewhat low expectations. But this book totally blew me away! Get your hands on this book if you haven't yet!!!

It was great. It was even better than Scythe. I loved how we can hear the Thunderhead as well as the different stories of the characters that intertwine through various parts of the book. There is a third book that is supposed to come out in about a year, and I can't wait.

Book two in Neal Shusterman Arc of a Scythe series, is intense and enthralling. The ending leaves so many possibilities for book three!
