  The second in the Flicka trilogy, "Thunderhead" is a masterpiece of its genre. Like "My Friend Flicka," it isn't a children's book per se. It's a dark book, really, reflecting a lot of harsh reality, from Rob McLaughlin's ongoing and desperate struggle to keep his Goose Bar Ranch from financial ruin, to the constant and sometimes overwhelming battle to survive against the harsh Wyoming 5/5(5).

Author Neal Shusterman. Ratings stars on. Thunderhead is the second book in the Arc of a Scythe series by Neal Shusterman. Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In the year since that fateful Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes - not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent.

He is a dark folk hero known as Author: Neal Shusterman. This is a really bizarre book, a bit schizophrenic at times.

The Thunderhead was ever vigilant—but for a scythe, its slumberless, unblinking eyes were of no concern. It was powerless to even comment on the comings and goings of scythes, much less act upon anything it saw. The Thunderhead was the ultimate voyeur of death.

This feeling, however, was more than the observational nature of the Thunderhead.5/5(50). The Thunderhead is the perfect ruler of a perfect world, but it has no control over the scythedom.

A year has passed since Rowan had gone off grid. Since then, he has become an urban legend, a vigilante snuffing out corrupt scythes in a trial by fire. His story is told in whispers across the continent.

THUNDERHEAD itself had much more characterisation in this book and I loved every reveal, every moment of narration from the Thunderhead.

Thunderhead Book Review Thunderhead starts with Rowan, err Scythe Lucifer, gleaning wicked Scythes. At least that’s what he was doing before the book opened up. 10 months, or something like that, have passed since the close of Scythe .Despite my negative sounding title (a quote from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) I actually quite enjoyed Thunderhead.

Despite the implausible ending, the book is quite action packed and is a fun listen especially with the ever reliable Scott Brick.In order to READ Online or Download Thunderhead Read Online ebooks in PDF, ePUB, Tuebl and Mobi format, you need to create a FREE account.
