The Holders




The Holders (Holders #1)
Release Date:
03/05/2013

17-year-old
Becca spent her whole life protecting her brother from, well, everything. The
abandonment of their father, the so called 'experts' who insist that voices in
his head are unnatural and must be dealt with, and the constant threat of being
taken away to some hospital and studied like an animal. When two
representatives appear claiming to have the answers to Ryland's perceived
problem, Becca doesn't buy it for one second. That is until they seem to know
things about Ryland and about Becca and Ryland's family, that forces Becca to concede
that there may be more to these people than meets the eye. Though still highly
skeptical, Becca agrees to do what's best for Ryland.

What they find at St. Brigid's is a world beyond their imagination. Little by
little they piece together the information of their family's heritage, their
estranged Father, and the legend of the Holder race that decrees Ryland is the
one they've been waiting for. However, they are all--especially Becca--in for a
surprise that will change what they thought they knew about themselves and
their kind.

She meets Alex, a Holder who is fiercely loyal to their race, and for some
reason, Becca and Ryland. There's an attraction between Becca and Alex that
can't be denied, but her true nature seems destined to keep them apart. However,
certain destinies may not be as clear cut as everyone has always believed them
to be.

Becca is lost, but found at the same time. Can she bring herself to leave
Ryland now that he's settled and can clearly see his future? Will she be able
to put the the feelings she has for Alex aside and head back to the US? And can
Becca and Ryland ever forgive their father for what he's done?

Praise for Series:

“The twisty plot and swoony romance of The
Seers kept me turning the pages as I fell in love with Becca and Alex all over
again.”
Trisha Wolfe, author of Fireblood


“It had a gripping plot, plenty of exciting twists and
turns and some pretty fantastic characters which all combined to keep me glued
to the pages.”
A Dream of Books


“If this is any notion of what Julianna Scott
can do, I cannot wait to see what is next. The Holders was refreshing and just one heck of a good
read.”
The Book Cellar


“I am so thankful this is only the beginning of a
series because I couldn't imagine not being able to read a continuation of
Becca's story. The Holders is a novel too entertaining and emotionally
charged to pass up!”
Lovey Dovey Books


“There are a lot of other things to love about The Holders – a detailed history and Celtic element come to mind
– but it was really the characters that sold this novel for me.”
More Than Just Magic



About the Author
Julianna was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and spent the majority of her educational career convinced she would be a musician. However, after receiving her music degree from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, she realized that she'd been born in the wrong era for her dreams of singing jazz to adoring fans clad in zoot-suits and flapper dresses to come true, and began to wonder if her true
calling might be elsewhere.

While Julianna had always excelled in writing throughout school, she'd never considered it a career possibility until about three years ago, when she'd gotten her first story idea and decided to go for it. She grabbed her laptop,
started typing away, and has never looked back.
