Layla Givens, a Vanguard is attending the holy days with her brothers, Samson and Grant, when the Elder recognizes her and decides she is the one to complete the 'Fullfillment.' of varying warring peoples to find ultimate peace.
This novel makes you feel you are in medieval days. The Kingdoms of the Strong, Religious, Teaching, and Mindbenders are trying to live in an uncomfortable alliance. Actually the Strong and Mindbenders (my word,) are at war. The unrest within their own respective kingdoms is filled with action-packed scenes.
The action propels the tale, but, you find yourself immersed within the personalities of the parties involved. You begin to follow the author's mind as she changes perspective from one character to the other as I quickly followed the storyline and turned those pages at a speed I did not realize I could read.
The characters, scenery and dialog are vivid and controlled to keep the reader wondering what happens next. The surprising cliff hanger at the ending, thus beginning of the next volume, makes your mind go off into possibilities.
I foresee the next volume as being as good as this first and can hardly wait to absorb it. Excellent writing!
The character motives and complexity are something that George R. R. Martin would dream up. No single character tags along with the plans of another unless there is a clear connection to their own goals.
The moment when you don’t know what is going to happen in a story is always one of my favorite and Erin Rhew delivers such, several times over.
Erin creates a mood in a scene like few authors can, taking an image or feeling and weaving it through the setting, and language of the PoV character. It’s in the way they move, think, and talk. Rare and wonderful.
What to watch for:
There is a debate in writing not about show vs. tell specifically, but how to handle it when dealing with the PoV character. Most adults know their own emotions, I know when I’m angry, or tired, or sad … so why don’t characters? This is the debate. Some authors and readers believe you should continue to only show even when dealing with the PoV characters. Others believe and find it annoying when the PoV characters emotions aren’t stated clearly.
Erin Rhew falls clearly in the second camp. Her characters know their own emotions and label them.
I loved reading this book, imagining the world Ms. Rhew created, and falling in love with the characters. I thought I'd have a hard time keeping up, since fantasy isn't my usual genre, but I had no problem. Ms. Rhew does a great job of keeping the voice of each character separate and adding enough description that a clear picture was created in my head from first introduction. I read this book and it played through my mind like a movie-- the castles, the dungeon, the maze, the woods, it's all in my head.
I enjoyed how Layla's strength and femininity, Wil's noble gentleness and cuteness, and Nash's internal struggles and hotness, made for a love triangle that I'm not entirely sure who I'm rooting for! (TeamWho??? Help!). Usually I can figure out who's going to get the girl from page one, but the love triangle in The Prophecy reminds me of that in the early seasons of The Vampire Diaries--you end up rooting for two guys and fall in love with them both.
Don't even get me started on the last chapter. I couldn't believe the scene Ms. Rhew left us in at the end of Book 1! Honestly, I was almost angry at her :) However, I'm thankful that I can order Book 2 TODAY so I can continue the story. Heck, I may as well preorder Book 3 now, since I'm completely hooked.
