The Prophecy by Erin Albert

Growing up on a small farm in the kingdom of Vanguard, seventeen-year-old Layla Givens lives a deceptively tranquil existence. But her carefully constructed life quickly falls apart when she’s abducted by a religious zealot who proclaims her The Fulfillment of an ancient peace prophecy and whisks her away to marry her greatest enemy.

Wilhelm, Prince of the Ethereals, is reluctant to meet his new bride. He's grown up believing Vanguards are evil, an enemy to fight and fear...not love. Can he set aside his prejudices and work alongside Layla to bring lasting peace after centuries of war?

Nash, a loner who has never fit in, carries a huge secret, one big enough to destroy both kingdoms. When he accidently meets Layla, he’s no longer content to live in the shadows, but he must resist his growing attraction—for her safety and for the longevity of the two kingdoms.

When Nash's secret is revealed, a firestorm sweeps through both realms, with Layla at the center. Now she must choose between duty and desire while the fate of two nations hangs in the balance.

Thanks so much for hosting me on my blog tour for The Prophecy, Pem!

Q) What inspired you to write this book? 
I’ve always wanted to be a writer, so I typically have story ideas running through my head all the time. For The Prophecy though, I’d say my biggest inspirations were Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and Arthurian legend.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing? 
The creative process. For this book, and the other two books in the series, I had the distinct pleasure of working with my friends, affectionately called The Dream Team. Working with them, living in this world with them, made the process all that more thrilling and special!

Q) What is your favorite candy? 
When it comes to chocolate candy, I like Reese’s Big Cups the best. For sour candy, I’m partial to Sprees and Nerds.

Q) What is your favorite cartoon? 
Gracious alive! I don’t remember the last time I watched a cartoon. It’s not a cartoon in the Saturday morning sense, but I really like Tangled.

Q) When did you know you wanted to be a writer? 
I have always had a passion for the written word. I started reading at a young age, and at the age of four, I wrote my first poem on my grandparents’ typewriter. When everyone read it and freaked out over it, a future writer was born!

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future? 
I made some changes to The Prophecy, so I am working on filtering those changes down into the second and third books. I hope to submit the second book, tentatively called The Outlanders, for publication soon and the third book, tentatively called The Fulfillment, not too long thereafter.

Erin Albert is an author and fitness trainer. 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." In her free time, Erin enjoys acting, running, kickboxing, and, of course, reading and writing.
