Is there a target audience for The Holder's Dominion?
- The Holder's Dominion is about an unforgettable female hero who goes head-to-head with the world's most elusive hacker. If you enjoy action-packed, heartfelt thrillers, this book is for you!
- The Holder's Dominion takes place on a college campus and therefore can be categorized into a genre called “new adult,” meaning college-age characters, but the story can also be categorized into the genre "young adult," because the foundation of this story revolves around that “shove” we all go through into adulthood. When we leave the nest, we’re forced to grow up quickly. Beyond our high school days are powerful new-adult stories that occur much like Kaylie's experience when she faces "The Holder."
