QUICK NOTE...Update: 1/2/19
The blog is slowly coming back on line. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. I've finally reached a stage in all this chaos that I feel that I can try to take a few baby steps back into the blogging world. A post here, a post there, and who knows. Hope you stay along for the ride!

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!
