QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19
First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My reading pace is much slower since Hurricane Michael knocked my life for a whirl (*grr*), but once I finished the online edition of SCYTHE (thanks to Riveted!), I simple HAD to get my hands on the sequel (thanks mom!).
It picks up not long after the first book ends, Citra is unwittingly making her mark in the scythedom (not a bad thing, if you ask me), while Rowan has gone rogue (with good reason!). They both have agendas of a sort they are working on, but nothing could truly prepare you for what's about to go down. It's not just the rumblings of uprise in the scythe community. It's not just the Thunderhead finding ways around its own rules to try and aide those it knows will have a big impact on humankind. It's not just the fate of Tyger, or the newly introduced Greyson (or is it Slayd?) that's gonna rock your world. Let's just say "ghosts" from the past are not quite finished with ANYONE just yet, the Thunderhead is FEELING a lot more these days, and the final outcome will simply take your breath away (which isn't too far off of what happens to...um, never mind).
It's exciting, thrilling, edge of your seat reading that YA lit fans will NOT want to miss. DO NOT SKIP BOOK ONE...not that you would, but in case you were thinking about it...just, NO. Happy reading!
