I love this series! I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first book, Scythe, but it was some time before I picked Thunderhead. It was one of those rare cases where the first book in the series was brilliant, and the second book is equally so. It manages to combine action, interpersonal relations and political intrigue in such a way that each element is relevant and contributes to the storyline. The two main characters, Citra and Rowan, are inspiring as they try, in their own separate ways, to challenge the "New Order" who are power hungry and serve only their own agenda. Great read!
