Description

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?

Possibly best book I've ever read

This second book in the Arc series surpassed all expectations. I am in awe. Absolutely mind blowing.
I am so very happy I decided to give this series a shot. A masterpiece.

Loved it

Great book with amazing narration. The story itself is interesting and full of unique and thoughtful turns and twists. This second installment really fleshes out the world and I loved getting to know it better. Left me hungry for more. Also the narration is the best I've ever heard in an audiobook, he gives everyone unique voices without being over the top. Great job.

The Thunderhead has Spoken.

This is a magnificent book. The ending was amazing and not predictable with convenient, last minute, pull tricks out of nowhere escapes/loopholes.The thunderhead has rendered its verdict, it does not make mistakes, and it's voice resonates.

Fantastic in every way

Every single part of this book is perfection. The way it mirrors the world as it is today, the warnings it makes clear, the political intrigue— everything. Greg Tremblay is the single best audiobook narrator I have ever had the pleasure of listening to, and he is the absolute perfect choice to narrate this amazing series. I straight up refuse to physically read this book because it is just so much better listening to Greg narrate.

I love this series!

The premise of this series is so interesting and is a great one to chat about with friends. I was surprised by hearing so much of the Thunderhead's voice, but I loved the insight that it gave. I love this series and can't wait for the next book!

Totally lives up to the first one

I absolutely loved this follow up to Scythe. My only complaint is that I got too invested in the story, and I stressed myself out and had to take a break!

#Audible1 Good narration

#Audible1
The narrator did a good job of modifying his cadence and pitch to suit different characters without making it jarring or irritating. Not an easy balance to find as far as narration goes.
Story was engaging and poses some intriguing philosophical questions.

Amazing!

I absolutely loved it!! As the first one was so good I thought it would be quite hard to make a follow up as good but I was so wrong. This book hooked me and I couldn't stop listening. Bravo and thank you to Neal Shusterman for writing such an entertaining story and Greg Tremblay for rendering the reading soo alive :-) :-)

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!

inorganic coincidences

the story is beautifully read but the coincidences which come about feel forced and necessary only to achieve an end.

Good overall, sometimes slow

Interesting. However, some character and plot development was slow moving. Looking forward to the next book.

Not as good as the first one but it did end strongly!

There were a lot of new characters so it was a little frustrating trying to keep track of all the characters as well as all the new settings. That being said this narrator is excellent with such a clear voice. Towards the end I got bored but it does get stronger again and had a strong ending.

OMG! Not what I was expecting!

I read the first book, Scythe, as part of a book club at work. We were supposed to read/listen the first 50% of the book by the first meeting, and by that time, half of the participants have read the second book already! I thought they were crazy, but actually, they were so right!

Usually, the second book of a trilogy or a saga is weaker than the first one, and that is because we had so many expectations for that book that we get a bit disappointed that it was not as good as we thought it would be. However, Thunderhead is as good as the first one. If Hephaestus was the blacksmith of the gods, Shusterman is his equivalent in plot twits. I was gagging, shocked, gasping, and struck while listening to this book!

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.

amazingly deep. I love stories that make you think about what it truly means to be human or to express your humanity.

Captivating

If I thought the first book was amazing, boy did this take me on a rollercoaster of emotions. Did not know this book could be much more incredible than the last. The voice was wonderful. Loved how he kept changing his voice for different characters. Made the experience much more exciting. I can hear Citra Teranova's voice in my head as well as Rowan Damisch so clearly even after finishing the story.
