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?

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!

Neal Shusterman has left me wanting more!

"To deny humanity the lesson of consequences would be a mistake. And I do not make mistakes." The Thunder Head from the book Arc of the Scythe 2 Thunder Head.

This book........WOWZERS! From the first page to the very end kept me hooked and left me wanting more. I want to say so much, but I don't want to give any spoilers. Neal Shusterman does a fabulous job once more in his second Arc of the Scythe novel. We join Scythe Anastasia and Scythe Curie once more along with the enigmatic Scythe Lucifer as we journey further down the rabbit hole of the Scythedom and we even get to understand the Thunder Head even more. In a world that humans have strived to make perfect humanities flaws spread and ahow their ungly heads spreading like a disease through a world that has become complacent and blind to consequences of act of actions and also inactions. How will Scythe's Anastasia and Lucifer handle these new challenges that they face as Junior Scythes?

This book takes us deeper into the Thunder Head and Sythedom. For a world that is supposed to be perfect human ignorance, arrogance, and corruption still fetser's in society. I enjoyed this book as we get to see more of the inner workings of the Scythedom and had a rollercoaster of emotions. From surprise and shock to laughter and sadness Shusterman really does a wonderful job keeping me hooked into the story. I even thought about calling off work just to make more time to get through this book.

As for Greg Tremblay what can be said that hasn't been said before. The man is brilliant as a Narrator and floors me with the numerous voices he produces in this book! He always speaks in a good tone and the right volume with such great clarity and emotion you feel the characters from the book are alive and being portrayed by different people and not just the one guy.

This world of Neal Shusterman's keeps on getting better and better. I am all ready looking out for his next book as the ending of Thunder Head has left me with my mouth hanging open. Highly recommend this series!

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.

Did not disappoint!

Not only have the characters evolved throughout the story, but in such a fantastic way. The ending is such a cliff hanger, I can’t wait for the next book!

A sequel which really builds on the original

I really liked the first book in the series, but was amazed at how much more I enjoyed the sequel. It really fleshed out the world, and really raised the stakes. I enjoyed everything about this book and can't wait for the next one.

Steht zumindest an Spannung dem ersten Teil kaum n

Im zweiten Teil der Geschichte tritt das sogenannte "Thunderhead" mehr in den Vordergrund. Hierbei handelt es sich um eine künstliche Intelligenz, die für das Wohl der Menschheit sorgt. Während ich persönlich von der Möglichkeit in Zukunft die Lebensspanne des Menschen beliebig zu verlängern recht überzeugt bin, scheint es mir eher fragwürdig, ob eine künstliche Intelligenz jemals über ein derartiges Einfühlungsvermögen verfügen wird. Aber wer weiß...

Die Spannung ließ vielleicht zu Beginn des Buches ein klein wenig nach, erreichte dann aber schnell wieder das Niveau des ersten Bandes. Ich kann den zweiten kaum erwarten.
