Fear not, glean not. We have a cover and a blurb, all hail!

—————————————————

But why do we not have a release date for this? A cover? Any kind of info whatsoever?
Are they purposely leaving us in the dark to mess with our heads?

Well, it's working, now give me some damn details that I can hold on to. I beggo!

I am so surprised (and disappointed?) that this cover isn't blue. This book did not follow the YA cover rule! (Red, Blue, Green)

We have a cover and it's f**king gorgeous but that's not the matter at hand.

o3 Jan 2018. So. Well. I'm sure this series is gonna be another in a long tradition of series going *splash* even after a decent start. Though, this one's start was only half-way decent: #1 was just the sort of thing one can bitch at and not much more. Though, the 2nd book was the more intriguing one. So far.

- Tonists - Of course, the Tone, Vibration and Toll are the thingys from their domain.

Am I the only one weirdly unsettled by the "the" in the title? Scythe, Thunderhead, and Toll would all be one word & I need this kind of consistency in my life.
