Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In the finale to the Arc of a Scythe trilogy, dictators, prophets, and tensions rise. In a world that's conquered death, will humanity finally be torn asunder by the immortal beings it created? Citra and Rowan have disappeared. Endura is gone. It seems like nothing stands between Scythe Goddard and absolute dominion over the world scythedom. With the silence of the Thunderhead and the reverberations of the Great Resonance still shaking the earth to its core, the question remains: Is there anyone left who can stop him? The answer lies in the Tone, the Toll, and the Thunder.--adapted from publisher's description.

    After the great disaster that closed out Thunderhead (2018), the second volume in Shusterman's acclaimed Arc of a Scythe series, the postmortal world is in chaos. A legion of scythes are truly, permanently dead; the corrupt Scythe Goddard has claimed the title of High Blade and is amassing unprecedented power; and the sentient Thunderhead, the cloud that keep society running, has gone silent, speaking only through one chosen ally who becomes a near-religious figure in the eyes of some. Previous volumes focused primarily on Citra and Rowan as they became Scythes and questioned the laws of their society; as this series ender opens, they are absent, and the narrative sprawls through time and place, connecting readers to characters old and new. Shusterman slyly nods to the political and social issues in our world as he explores the triumphs and failings of his. Though this finale occasionally buckles under the weight of its potential, there's still nothing else like it out there.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Scythe (2016) was a Printz Honor Book, and this best-selling series has asked big questions and garnered a bigger following. Readers will want to be here to see how it all ends. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
