Cover Reveal: SCAN by Walter Jury & S.E. Fine -- Plus ARC Giveaway!


MacGyver Meets War of the Worlds in this Exhilarating Adventure

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.

Even with all he knows like how to defend himself with useful tools made out of bubblegum, Tate fears he’s still inadequate. With the help of his girlfriend and estranged mother, all Tate can really do is keep moving and ensure his father’s invention stays out of the hands of his pursuers and that his father didn’t die in vain. A riveting, fast-paced adventure, Scan is a clever alien thriller with muscle and heart.

Walter Jury was born in London, has a background in the film industry, is a big fan of the New York Giants, and is an enthusiast of Jamba Juice’s Protein Berry Workout smoothie only with soy, never whey. Scan is his first book for teens. Oh, and under his real name, he’s a producer of one of 2014’s biggest blockbusters. Let’s just say he “diverges” in his career from film to literature quite well.

S. E. Fine was born on the West Coast, raised in the Midwest, and is now firmly entrenched on the East Coast, where she lives with her husband and two children. She’s a clinical child psychologist and the author of the YA fantasy series Guards of the Shadowlands.

  3. I love the cover, the colors are beautiful and stunning. The blurb is perfect, just enough to make me curious but not so much that I feel like I already know what's up.

  4. The blurb sounds wonderful and I love the pretty cover. It is really eye catching.


  5. Wow, this cover is breathtaking. It's easy for publishers to get carried with a design because flashy things catch a lot more eyes. In this case, the cover is simple yet impressive. There may not be a whole lot going on, but the combinations of lights and colors are visually stunning.

  6. The blurb sounds very sci-fi meets save-the-world thriller. I love books that can tell a great alien story without it coming off as some wacky theory that you hear on the show Ancient Aliens. Also, the cover is so gorgeous! I really like how the red and black/dark blue contrast :D


  7. I LOVE the cover! It looks amazing with the red streaks of light shooting down onto the plant! The Blurb sounds great too! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
