The Seers by Julianna Scott Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

 The Seers by Julianna Scott 
(Holders #2) 

Published by: Strange Chemistry
Publication date: February 4th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

After nearly being drained of her ability and betrayed by a man her father trusted, Becca Ingle was left with one clue — Ciaran Shea. He holds the key to the downfall of the power-mad Holder, Darragh, and can ensure the safety of both Holder and Human kind alike… but is he willing to help?
Becca, Alex, Jocelyn, and Cormac set out for Adare Manor to meet with the Bhunaidh, an aristocratic group of pure blooded Holders of whom Ciaran is a rumored member. However, when Becca discovers that they might not be the only ones after the information Ciaran has, everyone begins to wonder if Bhunaidh might not be as uninvolved with Darragh as they claim.
A race to uncover Ciaran’s secrets begins, where the line between friend and foe is blurred, and everyone seems to have their own agenda. Becca will have to call on every ability at her disposal to uncover the truth, all the while knowing that sometimes the answer is more dangerous than the question.

     The Seers by Julianna Scott was absolutely one of the best books I've read in the last year! Not
only did she have some of the most well thought-out characters, but she also put them into one heck of a storyline!
       When we last saw Becca, she was half-dead and left with a single clue: Ciaran Shea. With this name on her lips, her, Alex,maher father, and a few others travel to Adare Manor to meet with some aristocratic Holders. There they try to find this 'Ciaran Shea', as they believe he holds the key to defeating Darragh.
      I love Becca and Alex together! They're so adorable, and quirky, and did I mention adorable? They're totally ship-worthy!
      Then, of course, there's Bastian and Steven, the brothers. Steven is normal, flawed, a non-Holder. And Bastian is, well, Bastian.
      All in all, pick up this book and read it, even if that means putting down the God-awful romance that had the swoon-worthy guy on the cover.
      Whenever someone asks me for a book recommendation, this series is the first to pop to my mind. I've also read it twice. Already.

Rating: 5 Stars
Recommended for: Ages 12+

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.
