Layla’s world tumbles out of control when she discovers the truth of her parentage and realizes the Prophecy—the one she upended her entire life to defend—is incomplete. When her new friends share the entire Prophecy, the revelations contained within it alter her destiny and challenge everything she and Wil believe in. Now, she must confront the Outlander queen to save the Ethereal kingdom while grappling with this new reality.
Tortured and imprisoned, Nash accepts his fate and offers the First Ones the one thing he has left to give: his life. In a desperate attempt to save the people he loves most, he surrenders himself to the Outlander queen and a destiny darker than he could have ever dreamed possible.
Wil, tormented by the consequences of his choices, realizes he may never be able to uphold his end of the Prophecy. His mistake casts a deep, foreboding shadow over his kingdom and those he loves, while its ripples threaten to shatter both the Prophecy and everything he and his family have sworn to protect.
In this epic conclusion, lives are lost, kingdoms clash, friendships are tested, and love and fate collide.

About the Author
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.
Thanks for hosting me today, Vicki, and allowing me to talk about my characters. I’m pleased to “meet” your readers. I hope they will enjoy taking a look at The Fulfillment series!
While I love well-developed, great main characters, I also enjoy interesting secondary characters. As you will soon come to learn about me, I adore Rick Riordan and his Percy Jackson series. One character I really adore is Leo. He’s not a main character, though he does get his own perspective. While he’s in the background tinkering with gadgetry and trying to help save the world, he adds flavor and richness to the story.
In a similar vein, I hope my secondary character Samson Mantar delivers completeness to The Fulfillment series. Readers first meet Samson in the opening pages of The Prophecy. They learn he is Layla’s (the main character) snarky adopted brother. Though he can be a handful for the family to deal with, they love him and accept him as he is. In fact, Layla allows herself to be kidnapped by religious zealots in order to save Samson’s life. In return, Samson makes it his mission to free Layla from her captivity. I’ve been told a lot of young adult novels don’t have strong family cores, so I hope the relationship between Layla and Samson provides one in this series.
For those that don’t know, Samson is my homage to Percy Jackson. I am woefully unprepared to match Rick Riordan wit for wit, but I’ve tried to add both humor and snark to the story through Samson. There’s one line he says in The Fulfillment that has received numerous “LOL” comments throughout my rounds of edits with different editors. It may be my most favorite Samson line ever. Not only is it snarky, but I think it captures the essence of who he is in one moment.
Usually I find myself crushing on the main male characters when selecting my book boyfriends, but several people have mentioned to me that they crush on Samson. My friend and Dream Team member Danielle is one of them. She enjoys his sense of humor and his undying loyalty and devotion to those he loves. Last night while I discussed this post with my husband, Deek, he revealed that Samson is also HIS favorite character too (in a non-crush way—haha). So, I’m glad to know he appeals to all sorts of readers.
Samson will go through his toughest challenges yet in The Fulfillment. His love, honor, and family loyalties will be tested in the end. Will he be strong enough to stay true to himself? You’ll have to find out… ;)
