Rowan and Citra take opposite stances on the morality of the Scythedom, putting them at odds, in the second novel of the chilling New York Times bestselling series from Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology.
Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken it upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In the year since Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes—not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent. He is a dark folk hero now—“Scythe Lucifer”—a vigilante taking down corrupt scythes in flames.
Citra, now a junior scythe under Scythe Curie, sees the corruption and wants to help change it from the inside out, but is thwarted at every turn, and threatened by the “new order” scythes. Realizing she cannot do this alone—or even with the help of Scythe Curie and Faraday, she does the unthinkable, and risks being “deadish” so she can communicate with the Thunderhead—the only being on earth wise enough to solve the dire problems of a perfect world. But will it help solve those problems, or simply watch as perfection goes into decline?
Really enjoy this book. It picks up where the first book ended. If you have yet read Scythe the first book, then you don’t have to read this review. I still like Rowan in the book, saw how strong he becomes in this book. Also there an time jump half am year went by since the first book. Citra has become an awesome sythe, setting the bar high with gleaning. Book starts out strong then get boring with backstory history a lot with rules about Sythes and Thunderhead. They can fit a lot onto almost 500 pages. The ending will leaving you wanting more. This book has a lot death, very little romance, and lots of secrets to discover by you. Lucky the book comes out tomorrow. Happy Reading!!
