The troubling times in MidMerica are not over; and they’re spreading. Rowan and Citra, still caught in the maelstrom of politics and ideology that have the Scythedom on the brink of internal conflict, are each thrust to the knife’s edge by the power play. Helpless to interfere in the Scythedom, but never blind… the Thunderhead is aware of all.
From Neal Shusterman and Audible Studios, the exemplary sequel to Printz award winning “Scythe” is out today: “THUNDERHEAD”
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?
