    1. What a fun read! When I heard I had won Scan in a giveaway, I was so excited. Scan is by two FANTASTIC authors: Sarah Fine, author of Sanctum, and Walter Jury who worked on Divergent! Thankfully, my expectations were met :)Scan has an awesome main character. Tate is smart, talented, and still has faults like a normal teenage. His relationship with his father is strained, to say the least. Tate doesn't understand why his dad wants him to learn seemingly useless, but difficult, skills. Hmm :)Of co [...]


    2. You know how you have “chic flicks”? I seriously think the term “guy flick” should be coined too. While girls have their mushy marriage movies about cheating monstrosities, guys have their stupid trigger happy fools who fight aliens and kiss hot girls. BOTH are equally sexist and kind of frustrating. SCAN is a guy flick. It’s full of aliens and guys and the occasional make out session and loooots of dead people and blood. Blood everywhere! Guys are always hotter with blood on their fac [...]


    3. My review can also be found on my blog Collections.Before I started reading Scan, I expected it to have action and suspense. But I wasn't fully prepared for just how nonstop the action would be! There was car chases and crashes, explosions, gun fights, and so much more. It was nerve-racking yet exciting, and I could not wait to find out what would happen to the characters and how the book would end.Throughout the majority of his life, Tate's had to endure rigorous training in combat and master a [...]


    4. 2.5 starsFor a fast-paced, action-packed book, Scan was unusually difficult to get through, at least for me. The endless string of action scenes that was supposed to be captivating and entertaining was actually pretty tiresome and emotionally flat. In the end, I had to give myself a very stern talking to just to finish reading it. In many ways, Scan was a pretty big disappointment. It lacked any real emotional depth, especially of the level I’ve come to expect from Sarah Fine. Fine usually use [...]


    5. „SCAN: Im Visier des Feindes“, der erste Band der „Tate Archer“-Reihe aus der Feder von Sarah Fine und Walter Jury, stand bei mir schon lange Zeit auf der Wunschliste, sodass ich mich sehr gefreut habe, als ich das Buch endlich am Erscheinungstag in den Händen halten durfte. Leider kam hierbei jedoch auch mindestens genauso schnell Ernüchterung auf, denn leider hat mir das Buch gar nicht gefallen, sodass ich dieses nach etwas mehr als 250 Seiten abgebrochen habe.Dabei waren die Ansätz [...]


    6. ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Scan by Walter Jury and Sarah FineBook One of the Scan seriesPublisher: Putnam Children'sPublication Date: May 6, 2014Rating: 4 starsSource: ARC sent by the publisherSummary (from ):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 [...]


    7. In reality, I picked this book up because I thought the cover looked good. And when I read the summary, it didn't sound too bad. It was a typical story of a teenage boy who really distastes his family. It is the typical story of the protagonist unknowingly causing mass destruction to epic proportions. And then I read it. Let it be known that the only thing that I have ever cared about is characterization. It doesn't matter how wonderful and twisted the plotline is, if the characters aren't satis [...]


    8. All his life, Tate was raised to be best at everything, which included going through rigorous combat training, and learning tough subjects and languages, so one day he could meet his father’s unreasonably high expectations. And his parents refused to tell him why. But the truth was soon revealed when he broke in his father’s highly secured study and stole one of his inventions. It resulted in a greater repercussion when his school was invaded by ruthless mercenaries, killing his father in th [...]


    9. I really enjoyed this! Fast-paced, tons of action, male point-of-view, an interesting spin on aliens. I just did not like the way Tate treats his girlfriend, Christina, when he finds out (view spoiler)[that she is a descendant of the alien race that may want to take over the planet. It's obviously not her fault, yet he treats her cruelly at times. (hide spoiler)] This especially stings because otherwise he's an awesome main character and has really sweet moments with her. By the end this persona [...]


    10. Crossposted @ The Library MistressBefore my proper review, let me tell you a little story about my time with this book. About a couple of months ago, I saw a red thing that looks like a book lying beside my office desk. Out of curiosity, I picked it up to inspect. I clearly have no idea it was for me (it wasn't on my desk, for starters!), I can't remember when I signed up to review the book, I definitely did, but I really can't recall so I left it there after clinging unto it for a while. I don' [...]


    11. I love Sarah Fine's Guards of the Shadowlands series, so when I found out she was co-authoring a sci-fi novel, I perked up and paid attention. SCAN is the story of Tate, whose genius inventor father has high expectations he can't quite meet. He loves rebelling in little ways, including sneaking his girlfriend into his father's lab for a makeout session. But when he takes an invention out of the lab . . AN is basically an extended chase scene with lots of explosions and double crosses. There are [...]


    12. An action-packed YA alien thriller. Scan focuses on a device that reveals who among us is human and who is alien. A great many chase scenes, gun fights, and explosions occur alongside awkward teen romance, no-one-understands-me angst, and overly convenient MacGyver skills.This action-packed book will make great summer reading for the high school set (lots of cursing and making out), but the plot holes and thin world development left me unsatisfied.



    13. Tate has been training all his life for something. His father seems to go on and on and on about some family responsibility that is just so important. What family responsibility? All Tate wishes for is an answer to the question.Mad at his father, Tate steals a seemingly innocent scanner from his father’s not-so-secret lab. And then his wish comes true. Now he’s thrown into a war against aliens, and the scanner can bring it either all to an end, or destroy all.The premise of the book, aliens [...]


    14. *Also posted at Oops! I Read A Book Again*Thank you to Sami of JKS Communications and Putnam Juvenile for the review copy! This in no way affected my views of the novel.OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY, let me just breathe for a second here. Whew. That was a thrilling ride and I haven't caught up my breath just yet. I read this book in one sitting because there's no other way to read it but all at once, foregoing sleep and eating. Ever since I heard about Scan back in June of 2013, I was so ex [...]


    15. View the full review here:iswimforoceans/2014/05It's always a bit of a risk when you fall for a novel before you've ever read it. It's also a bit risky when that novel doesn't have nearly the hype you might expect it to have. Scan, however, is the type of story that doesn't really need the hype or the know-how surrounding it. Rather, it does better, slowly building, burning and consuming your mind as the action and adventure course through your veins. Co-authors, Walter Jury and Sarah Fine, knew [...]


    16. Tate has lived his life on a strict regiment under the careful watch of his father; so strict, that it’s as though he lives in a military barracks instead of the place that he calls home. He’s always known that he’s being trained for something; he just didn’t know what. He’d silently rebelled by reciprocating his father’s coldness. Through his minute rebellion, he found a way to break in to his father’s heavily secured study where he stores high grade weapons of his invention. It w [...]


    17. I received an advance galley copy of this book. The proof says this book is appropriate for ages 12 and up, but I would disagree. I think with the amount of swearing (mostly f-bombs) and some heavy make out moments, this is more for older teens. And while I understand why the main character, Tate, swore at his mom, I think this should not be presented to younger kids who may not be able to distinguish the setting differences. The book is being described as “MacGyver meets War of the Worlds,” [...]


    18. Review originally posted on Bibliophilia, Please.Okay, YA writers, the line has been drawn in the sand. If you're going to write about aliens, Scan by Walter Jury and Sarah Fine is what you're going to need to aspire to. Holy shit, is this book a wild ride! I literally stayed up all night reading it because it wouldn't let me go. Seriously. There's no stepping away from it, so be sure you don't have to feed your kids or anything. (Put food on the bottom shelves of the refrigerator or scatter cer [...]


    19. This book was alright- not exactly a ringing endorsement. It was good enough, but I felt throughout that the story was lacking in some ways and wasn't sure it was something that I would want to continue on in. Imagine my great annoyance then when I found out the whole bloody thing ends on a cliffhanger! A cliffhanger can be alright in a book series, can even be really important and help with the story, but it needs to be further along. Once you have starter the story going, fostered the interest [...]


    20. It’s been a while since I read some science fiction, with the exception being Burn Out by Kristi Helvig. I loved how much of this world was related to the main theme of science fiction, but also brought in many different elements and themes.For one thing, thriller. This is a thriller. For being considered a thriller, some parts were slow. While I did like the way the authors worked up to certain scenes, I also felt that some parts to the story were unnecessary. However, pacing overall was very [...]


    21. Full review and interview with the authors at: A Belle's Tales.*4.5 stars* 16-year-old Tate Archer is fed up with his dad’s irrational expectations and the demanding schedule he has to adhere to. The extra studies, the perfectly proportioned nutritional meals, the intense training, and the protein supplements – all because he must prepare for something important… his purpose. But that’s the only information he can get out of his father. It’s hard to care about your “purpose” when y [...]


    22. So, to agree with a lot of the other reviews: Yes a non-stop guy action adventure with aliens and kisses.That said, some issues I think the others might have missed. Some inconsistencies1) It should be noted that if two creatures can interbreed, they are the same species, regardless of different genetics. Thus H1 and H2 are the same species.2) There is a great deal of 'much ado about nothing' in this book. If the differences between H1 and H2 are so small that no one seems to be able to figure t [...]


    23. Overall, it was okay. There was a lot of action in the story and a bit of science involved. The only real interesting character development came from Christina, in my opinion. She is scared of who she is and can't figure out what she should do. But in the end, she knows that she wants to be on the side for good, even if it goes against what she is. Tate was interesting enough, but a little too perfect. I don't know if the character was suppose to be that way (it would seem so from all the things [...]


    24. If you want a grab you by the throat, action packed book then look no further! I received this book through as a giveaway and I am so happy I did because I was nothing but impressed. First let me commend the author for casting a boy as the main character which is something that is missing in a lot of YA fiction lately. And secondly let me commend the author on a fantastic job of creating a thrill ride of a book.Tate Archer has grown up with an overbearing father who asks nothing but perfection f [...]


    25. I saw another review that said this was a "guy flick" and I wholeheartedly agree omgI liked the premise and the action but it's so obnoxiously a male fantasy I couldn't fully take it seriouslythe plot itself was very slow, it was just a lot of action packed together to make it seem like things were happeningI liked how the science was science and how all the training seemed believable but Tate just wasn't really that likableand don't get me started on the sickening heteronormativity and like I K [...]


    26. This book may have suffered from the fact that I had just read an adult book before it, so the vocabulary felt really basic. The premise is okay with a race of aliens hiding among us but it just doesn't get very far along in the plot of the first book. It reminds me quite a bit of the pacing of the SYLO series with lots of action that doesn't necessarily reveal anything. I liked the teen boy protagonist in SYLO better. This entire plot is based on the fact that the sullen teen boy did something [...]


    27. I really enjoyed this book. I was kinda sad that it only had two books, but the story is really interesting. I like the different alien view this has than the normal alien books you read. I can't wait to start the next book and find out what the third color the scanner picks up means. And ppl need to stop dying around Tate in this book or he is going to have no help at all. Great book. So would recommend this to ones.


    28. I think this book was kinda okay because a lot of the book sounded like, and then he was there, and fought those guys, when he was done with that he traveled their. I was very all over the place, and it didn't get into detail of the place, and how he was setting trap for all those people. It was a lot like alex rider in the sense that, theirs a lot of different settings because the characters are running around.


    29. I read a 62 page sneak peek, which is available on Sarah Fine's Facebook page. It's told from a male POV, with lots of futuristic weaponry and gadgets. From the way the last chapter ended, I'm expecting lots of action. I need to order the book & read on!
