We follow Layla through loves, imagined and real. We follow Layla through hand to hand fighting for justice. We follow Layla's suffering from her trusted and loved one's betrayal. We follow her as Layla comes into her own. We stand by Layla as she enters her 'Fulfillment.'
We put the book down sighing with relief, contentment, and knowing we just read a fabulous journey in Fantasy/Adventure. Lastly, I know there is more in this author to come. Wonderful creative writing and story plots.
As we left off from “The Outlanders”, Layla and her ragtag team find out the prophecy they have known their whole lives, the prophecy they have all committed to seeing it through to fruition is incomplete. Cue book ending music! Thankfully after that cliffhanging ending, this book “The Fulfillment” picks up right where “The Outlanders” left off. Note to Rhew- thank you for not dragging this out! From the point of discovering the full prophecy, the story takes off at an unstoppable pace with all of the characters scrambling to figure out this new prophecy and how or if they even fit in.
Layla's character is tested and stretched to a breaking point (and tested and stretched some more) as she unravels her role as a leader, her friendships both new and old, her family ties, her own heart's desires and her commitment to the prophecy. Layla makes some unbelievable sacrifices all in the name of peace, truth and integrity. Just when Layla thinks she has a handle on the situation, something spins out of control like her own heartache, the truth of her family and the ever increasing duties as the Fulfillment.
Wil receives some gut-wrenching news that shatters all his hopes and dreams. Just when you think it can't get any worse for our favorite king, sadly it does. Wil needs to decide to follow his heart or his duty as King of Etherea all while realizing he may not even fit into the First One's prophecy as he has previously believed.
Nash, still imprisoned by the Outlander Queen, has had his fair share of heartbreak in “The Outlanders”. In this installment Nash has to get beyond his pain and sacrifice even more for the promise of peace and the safety of Etherea. Thankfully Nash finds a few unlikely allies who will help him along his destined path.
As the story moves on we see battles (yes, more than one), blossoming love, incredible loss, strong commitments, promises, and ultimate sacrifices (tears will be shed). Will Layla and her friends fulfill this prophecy? Are all the people who play roles in the prophecy ready and willing? Will the Outlander Queen thwart the peace prophecy? Is the prophecy even true and possible? Will we ever find out the Outlander's power? Will all of our villains (the Outlander Queen, the evil Elder Werrick and the usurper King Vance) get what's coming to them? All of your questions will be answered in this beautifully written tale!
The Fulfillment picks up right where The Prophecy leaves off...we are thrust back into a world that is being torn apart and into the lives of the 'mere' children who are determined to save it. They are being beaten down on all sides by an evil queen, a false king, and a religious zealot who strayed too far from his path a long time ago. Their only guide a incomplete prophecy that they can't seem to unravel.
The worlds that Erin Rhew created are magical and vivid and I would love to see them come to life on the big screen, but it is her characters that stole my heart.
The strength of conviction in each of her characters had me both beaming in pride and wanting to shout at them just to let go...to let what WILl (ahem) happen be. Layla, Grant, Samson, Will, Nash, Vespa, and yes even Mia become an extended part of your family through this series and particularly this book. Erin's characters are so well developed that you know them on such a deep level that it is impossible not to hurt when they hurt and smile when they are happy. This is why even though the book leaves you completely satisfied with it's ending I say you don't want it to end. You don't want to lose your connection to these amazing characters, they have settled themselves on your heart through three books and letting go while 'fulfilling' (seriously no pun intended) is also heartbreaking.
Even the villains pull you in and while you may truly hate them you can't help but like how well...villainous they are. Erin pulls no punches, her wicked characters are just as evil as her heroes are heroic, you will despise them as much as you love everyone else and that makes for a perfect balance. There is very little, maybe they aren't as bad as we think or the desire to see the bad redeem themselves...no, they are evil and evil must be vanquished!
Then because you know, why put these kids through anything more.... there is love. Love is at the crux of it all. Who will Layla choose, should the question even have to be asked? What about Mia, how does she affect things (in a huge way, HUGE I tell you!), can Vespa and Grant stay strong together, what about our beloved goof Samson. Can the love of brothers and sisters stay strong or will they be torn apart by the difference that make them who they are? Decisions come to a head, heartbreak can't be avoided (and I warn you now, your heart will break, be ready), lives will never be the same, but love...love will be found and your broken heart will mend even if it will ache a little ever after.
There aren't many things that can be said about the storyline because discoveries are made on every page. Every action and reaction build the story to it's ultimate (and perfectly executed) conclusion. I worried because I couldn't see the end. I couldn't see how Erin would make everything right and while things happen that you wish hadn't it is easy to see as you take a deep breath and turn the last page that this is the way it all had to end. There was never any other option, some sad has to be blended with the happy. With your smile tears must come, but peace is there.
I highly recommend this series to any fan of the Fantasy genre and do not let it's YA status keep you from reading. I don't even know that calling it a YA is the right thing to do, because yes while it can be read by teen (older) readers, it is truly a fantasy series that will please any age from around 16 and up in my opinion. This in the end is simply a beautiful story about love, friendship, conviction, honesty, survival. This is a coming of age tale, it was wonderful to watch these characters grow into wonderful people and leaders. These characters shout that by believing in yourself and believing in the people you love you can accomplish anything..all you have to do is try!
