Book Synopsis

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?

  • This was WOW

    By Buttkicker1000
    I loved this book and found it completely thrilling!It did end a bit abruptly and left me wishing for more. I’d say if you’ve read the first book in this series ( or if you haven’t ) you need to read this book.
  • Mind blown

    I thought it couldn’t get any better. It did. I loved it. The ending will have you on pins and needles waiting for el numero 3
  • Good read

    By Jerseyohana
    A nice story that can help one want to be in a world where natural death is no longer an option. One could even suffer life threatening injuries and not have to die. The one sure way to die, gleaning. The above the law Scythe can kill anyone. Once they kill you, death is permanent. Why? Read the book.
  • Absolutely amazing, really makes you think of these interesting concepts

    By @tr_draws
    OK, so basically these connections with relating the Thunderhead and Grayson and the tonests with some sort of religious beliefs was OMG THE MOST MIND BLOWING THING EVER. I could go on and on about this book (s) because they were so well curated and put together that everything LEGIT EVERTHING could be a conversation starter or even more, a full on questioning the smallest things in life or the largest things in life. These book really make me think and it amazes me every time. It is honestly one of the most gut wrenching and just plain ol FREAKING AMAZINGLY put together books I have read in probably, at least a few years. I am certainly sharing this video with my friends and doing whatever it takes for them to read the book and to engage in some interesting conversations about it. This was really sloppy when I put it together sorry 😅 but anyways I absolutely love this video and definitely checking out some more

  • Best book Ever!!!!!

    By andrew stell
    This book was probably one of the best books I’ve read in a while. The ending while sad was near perfect and I want more.

    By Tjames1502
    There was only one thing about this book, the cliffhanger at the end. I have been waiting for this book to come out for a year and i expected a conclusion. Now its on to waiting again😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫
  • Fantastic

    Shusterman began an incredible series when he wrote Scythe and I was skeptical as to if he could follow. Having read Unwind and it's subsequent series, I should have had no about. Thunderhead not only continues the extensive world-building in the first book, but takes its characters (new and old alike) through intense amounts of change, despair, and even slight hopes about the revolution brewing in the scythedom. The ending was...masterful. I usually am perturbed about cliffhangers but it was so beautifully done, bringing previously disconnected characters together and I could not find any fault with it except for how long I have to wait for the next installment. Shout out to my favorite character, Greyson and the hornet he undergoes in this book alone. It was right up there with Citra and Rowan, who both had the added perk of being in the first book while Greyson was a creation of this novel. The Thunderhead also develops magnificently and all the ethical questions that arise from an omnipresent, benevolent super computer are explored and the Thunderhead is not treated as a mechanism but as a character. Whose evolution I came to appreciate just as much as those of the humans.
