Well, as is par for the course with me, I loved the sequel to Scythe way more than I did the original. The world is fully developed and the characters are well established... let the mayhem begin! This book is a twist a minute and I could barely put it down. The gleanings are more creative, the politics are more back-stabby than ever and the villains are completely dastardly!
It's hard to talk about all the details I love without spoiling the first book by telling you which characters are still alive and which are not or which are alive again... I will just say, the Thunderhead as a character is magnificent! I loved every time the POV cut to the Thunderhead and I loved all the ways humanity was influenced or was crafty in hiding things from the Thunderhead and vice versa.
I can't wait to dive into the third book, I'm so glad I waited until they were all out until I binged. I'm not sure I could have waited the year in between.
