Thunderhead by Neil Shusterman
Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman  (Scythe series #2)

Time has passed since the last page of book #1, and the characters have been busy: Cira is now a junior scythe, working with the kindly Scythe Curie and trying to change the flawed scythe society from within.

Rowan is now an outlaw, gleaning those scythes he deems to be the worst sources of corruption. And a new character, Greyson, is selected by the Thunderhead itself for an assignment nobody seems to comprehend.

Excellent world building and characters and an ending that you definitely will not see coming.

Minimal cussing, some bloodshed and death, no sex on the page.

This book does not stand alone: read Scythe first, then Thunderhead, then join the rest of us in waiting impatiently for the release of book #3 *The Toll* sometime next year.  Highly recommended for ages 14 to adult.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
