Thunderhead – Neal Shusterman

Thunderhead (Arc of a Scythe, #2)Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thunderhead is the thrilling sequel to Scythe, an intriguing science fiction series written by Neal Shusterman. After the events of the first book, I was very interested to see where the story would lead and I was not disappointed.

Both the world and the characters developed beautifully over the course of the novel. I felt that the main characters were provided with additional depth and nuanced motives. It allowed them to be more realized and unique individuals. They struggled with their places in the world and had to come to terms with a changing Scythedom. Even some of the supporting characters were more fleshed out.

It was fascinating to see the story progression and how the Scythedom was coping with all of the upheaval from the first book. Despite the fact that it is the second book in a larger series, I didn’t feel like it succumbed to the usual second book slump. Although the action wasn’t fast paced at all times, I felt that the pacing was smooth and I never felt bored by the plot.

I would highly recommend this series and cannot wait to see what happens in the third book.
