In the sequel to Scan, where Tate Archer and his girlfriend Christina lead the way to an uneasy peace between the H2 and humans, someone is trying to drive them apart: the Sicarii. But why? So that the Sicarii can invade earth themselves, of course. Once again, Tate must help lead the way to defeat the aliens, but without his late father's technology, he can not. But this time, it will take even more to figure the technology out. However, once he does, not only does the wand from the first book scan, but it also burns.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog

The events from this book changed history. Elie Wiesel, a survivor of the Holocaust, wrote the horrible events that he experienced when he was at the concentration camps. This book truly amazes me, it amazes me because it shows me of how horrible people can actually be. And this is the stuff that I don't understand why people do this. Why would the Germans follow orders from Hitler and exterminate all Jews? Do they not feel guilty, they took so many lives. so many innocent lives. Read this book, and you'll be a changed man.

Or women.   Library's SWAN Online Catalog
