Tate and his father don’t exactly get along. As Tate sees it, his father has unreasonably high expectations for Tate to be the best—at everything. Tate finally learns what he’s being prepared for when he steals one of his dad’s odd tech inventions and mercenaries ambush the school, killing his father in the process and sending Tate on the run from aliens who look just like humans.
All Tate knows--like how to make weapons out of oranges and lighter fluid--may not be enough to save him as he’s plunged into a secret inter-species conflict that’s been going on for centuries. Aided only by his girlfriend and his estranged mother, with powerful enemies closing in on all sides, Tate races to puzzle out the secret behind his father’s invention and why so many are willing to kill for it. A riveting, fast-paced adventure, Scan is a clever alien thriller with muscle and heart.
Most of the time I have a hard time with sci-fi books. Which is silly because most of them are super exciting and fast paced. I'm just not a big fan of the genre. I only picked this one up because I adore Sarah Fine! She wrote Guards of the Shadowlands which by the way is one of my favorite series ever. So I had to give Scan a try. I was definitely not disappointed.
Right from the get go I couldn't put this book down. It was fast paced and action packed. The first few pages I was a little frustrated with Tate's dad. He was strict about everything! It made me feel bad for Tate but in the end it was for his own good. He's character development amazed me. This kid was so smart and brave. I don't know what I would have done in his place, really. The secondary characters were interesting and amazing, as well. Scan was overall a win.
I recommend Scan 100% to all kinds of readers. Fine and Jury wrote an amazing book and I wouldn't want you guys to miss out!
