Author Biography

Erin Rhew is an editor, a running coach, and the author of The Fulfillment Series. Since she picked up Morris the Moose Goes to School at age four, she has been infatuated with the written word. She went on to work as a grammar and writing tutor in college and is still teased by her family and friends for being a member of the "Grammar Police."

A Southern girl by blood and birth, Erin now lives in a rainy pocket of the Pacific Northwest with the amazingly talented (and totally handsome) writer Deek Rhew and their “overly fluffy,” patient-as-a-saint writing assistant, a tabby cat named Trinity. She and Deek enjoy reading aloud to one another, running, lifting, boxing, eating chocolate, and writing side-by-side.

The Prophecy (The Fulfillment Series) (Volume 1) by Erin Rhew is a young adult fantasy and romance that pits enemies against each other for the purpose of peace. When seventeen-year-old Layla is proclaimed to be "The Fulfillment" of an old peace prophecy, she is carried away to fulfill the prophecy and marry her enemy, Wilhelm, the Prince of the Ethereals. The Ethereals and Vanguards have been fighting as enemies for years. Layla and Wilhelm don't trust each other and want to marry each other even less, especially when Nash stumbles onto the scene. His attraction to Layla is immediate, but would bring about the destruction of the prophecy of peace. Plus Nash has his own secrets that he doesn't want revealed. When Layla learns of Nash's secret, she has to make a choice. Marry for duty or live for her desire? All the while, the fate of the world is in her hands.

This is a beautifully written fantasy and romance that hinges on the characters. They are well written, fully fleshed out, and come across as real as the reader who is entrenched in this story. Descriptions like Layla's raven black hair and purple eyes not only show the reader exactly what the character looks like, but are so unique that the reader can't forget. Layla is tough but also conflicted, wanting to do what is right but wanting to do what is right for her, too. Both Wilhelm and Nash are confused and frustrated, which only makes Layla's decision that much harder.
