Citra is a scythe learning her own way to live with being a reaper. Rowan has become a vigilante dispensing justice to those that are above it. New characters are introduced and more detail is given about the Thunderhead and the world in general. The novel is full of twists and turns and comes to an ending that left me breathless.
There are parts of Scythe that I liked more and parts of Thunderhead that were so much better. While I could not pick which novel I enjoyed the most, I do know that I cannot wait for the release of the third book. If the series ended at Thunderhead I would be extremely sad. Thankfully it is not.
I love Shusterman's writing. He does not disappoint. There were periods of Thunderhead that were a bit too morbid for my taste. Thankfully they did not touch the line to triggered like his book Unwind did.
