What's New

The stakes are high in this chilling sci-fi thriller, in which professional scythes control who dies. Everything else is out of human control, managed by the Thunderhead. It's a perfect system – until it isn't.

Thunderhead really deepens the world-building from Book 1, and like Scythe, the sequel deals with meaty issues around identity, compassion and morality, with some heart-pounding action thrown in for good measure and an ending that is ... well, we don't want to spoil it. You'll just have to read it yourself!
