Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
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!

Jenna Jaxon is a multi-published author of historical and contemporary romance. She has just finished her fifth full length novel, To Woo A Wicked Widow, set in Regency England and the first book in her five part series, The Widow's Club.
Jenna has been reading and writing historical romance since she was a teenager. A romantic herself, she has always loved a dark side to the genre, a twist, suspense, a surprise. She tries to incorporate all of these elements into her own stories. She lives in Virginia with her family and a small menagerie of pets. When not reading or writing, she indulges her passion for the theatre, working with local theatres as a director. She often feels she is directing her characters on their own private stage.
She has equated her writing to an addiction to chocolate because once she starts she just can't stop.
Born in Las Vegas, NV, I joined the air force to see the world. An assignment to England kindled my love of the Regency era and prompted my dream to publish the stories in my head. I love to write with a steady supply of coffee nearby and one of my three cats on my lap. I currently live in Alaska with my husband and two teenage boys and wish I had the attention span to be a better cook.
Nadine Millard is a bestselling writer hailing from Dublin, Ireland.
When she's not writing historical romance, she's managing her chaotic household of three children, a husband and a very spoiled dog!
She's a big fan of coffee and wine with a good book and will often be found at her laptop at 2am when a book idea strikes.
Tabetha Waite is the multi-award winning author of the Ways of Love Series. Her debut novel, "Why the Earl is After the Girl," was published in July of 2016 and won the 2017 Best Indie Book Award in Romance and the 2018 Second Place Feathered Quill Book Award in Romance. She is a certified PAN member of the RWA. When she's not writing, Tabetha is reading, as true bookworms do, or checking out any antique mall she comes across. During the school year she works as a lunch attendant at the local community college. She is a small town, Missouri girl, born and bred, and continues to make her home in the Midwest with her husband and two wonderful daughters.
You can find her on most any social media site, and she encourages any fans of her work to join her mailing list for updates.
Married to the same man for over 25 years, I am a mother to three children and two Miniature Wiener dog.
After owning a business and experiencing considerable success, my husband and I got caught in the financial crisis and lost everything; our business, our home, even our car.
At this point, I put my B.A. in Poly Sci to use and took work as a waitress and bartender.
Unwilling to give up on a professional life, I simultaneously went back to college and obtained a degree in Energy Management.
And then the energy market dropped off.
And then my dog died.
I can only be grateful for this series of unfortunate events, for, with nothing to lose and completely demoralized, I sat down and began to write the romance novels which had until then, existed only my imagination.
I am happy to have found my place in life.
Anna Bradley is an RT Reviewer's Choice award-winning author of Regency Historical Romances. Anna came by her love of the regency-era the usual way--via a deep, abiding love for Jane Austen, and an appreciation for gentlemen in breeches and polished Hessians.
Anna's next book, MORE OR LESS A TEMPTRESS, releases on November 13, 2018. Anna lives with her husband and two children in Portland, OR, where people are delightfully weird and love to read.
