Blog Tour Why In Five: Burn by Walter Jury & Sarah Fine

Welcome to the blog tour for Burn by Walter Jury & Sarah Fine! I know all of your are probably sick of all my blog tours this week (there were at least four!), but hey, they are all great opportunities to win something! Check out why YOU should read Scan (book one of this duology), and enter to win a signed set of the books!

You can read my fangirl-y review of Scan HERE!

Why in Five:

5. Scan is book one of a duology. Okay, why is this a good thing? If you're like me, you're probably tired of so many trilogies and waiting and cliffhangers and really, waiting? Scan and Burn make up a duology! And Burn is published! So... no waiting necessary!

4. It's a science-fiction-thriller. Or some combination of the two. I personally LOVE science fiction, and thrillers, and I really enjoyed how Jury and Fine mixed the two. These two genres make for a very EXCITING book! Even if you don't like either genre, it's totally fine! The science isn't overwhelming. It's a very *smart* book though. Seriously, there was some awesome science-y things in this book. Get ready to be acquainted with things like hydrogen peroxide and flaming tennis balls!

3. Tate, the protagonist, is an easy guy to love. Yep, these books are told from the point-of-view of a male! And total-package kind of guy too. Very intelligent, athletic, cautious, brave, loyal... I may or may not have a tiny crush on him.

2. There is romance in these books and it is sooo sweet. It's one of those romances that are already a thing before the book begins! Which really works in Scan (and Burn too, I imagine). Tate and Christina are a lovely couple, and hey, no love triangle! The two of them have a lot to deal with, especially at one point, but I love how they work things out and keep fighting for each other. And did I mention no triangle?

1. ... It's Sarah Fine. I know this seems like a cop-out reason but come on. This woman is an AMAZING storyteller. Walter Jury is fabulous himself but of his books, I've only read Scan. But from Sarah? I've read Sanctum, Fractured, Chaos, Of Metal and Wishes, Scan. And I have Marked, Claimed, and hopefully soon, Of Dreams and Rust and Burn. Sarah has a lot of books published but the thing is, all of them are GREAT. I've yet to rate any of the five books of hers I've read lower than four stars. That's pretty amazing, on her part! Never stop writing, Sarah :)

Check out Burn:

Burn by Walter Jury and Sarah Fine
Book Two of the Scan series
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Publication Date: May 12, 2015

Official Summary:

"Car chases, explosions and action galore—awesome."—Kirkus Reviews on Scan

At the cliffhanger ending of Scan, Tate loses the very thing he was fighting to protect, what his father had called the key to human survival. Tate doesn't have much time to worry about it because he needs to get away, to ensure he and Christina are safe. His father left him one last thing that can do just that—a safehouse, which turns out to be a clue to what's really threatening the planet. As Tate follows the clues his father left behind, he starts to uncover the truth, realizing he's up against an enemy he's only beginning to understand.

A riveting, fast-paced "we are not alone" adventure, Burn thrills to the very end.

About Sarah Fine:

Sarah Fine is the author of several books for teens, including Of Metal and Wishes and its sequel, Of Dreams and Rust, and the Guards of the Shadowlands YA urban fantasy series. She is also the co-author (with Walter Jury) of two YA sci-fi thrillers: Scan and its sequel Burn. Sarah is also the author of the adult urban fantasy series, Servants of Fate, with the third book in the series, Fated, releasing September 2015. When Sarah’s not writing, she’s psychologizing. Sometimes she does both at the same time. The results are unpredictable.

  1. I felt sad when I didn't enjoy a praised book of Sarah Fine, so maybe with this thriller book, I will know to appreciate her.

  2. I've only read two of Sarah Fine's book, but those two I absolutely loved, so I'm more than ready to continue reading books by her!
    Great reasons to start this duology!

  3. I want to read her books because she's doing what I want to do - being a writer and a therapist! Makes me feel like I have a bond with her. Plus, I love science-fiction thrillers and don't read nearly enough of them

  4. Why does anyone want to win books.......because they sound interesting and caught my attention. Thanks for the chance!
