Inhaltsangabe: Since the days of Isaiah, two families have been charged with safeguarding the brass plates containing the history of God's works among His people one to preserve them and the other to protect them at all costs.
But these are dark times.
Having spent the last decade apprenticing in the closely guarded secrets of steel making, Zoram anxiously returns to his childhood home of Jerusalem to fulfill his destiny and take his place as the new Keeper of the Sword. His homecoming, however, is overshadowed by the suspicious death of his father and rumors of betrayal that reach the highest levels of power. Despite this, Zoram steadfastly strives to complete the work he is called to do, but his attention is divided between a woman unlike any he has ever met and another woman obsessed with his position and power. At the center of this personal and political turmoil stands Laban captain of Israel's armies, Keeper of the Records, and the cunning man Zoram is sworn to serve. But how can one man stop a rapidly growing wave of wickedness from destroying the faith, even the very nation, of Israel?
Review: "KEEPERS OF THE SWORD," by Guy Morgan Galli, Covenant Communications, $17.99, 377 pages (f)
When still a young boy, Zoram leaves his family and travels to a foreign land to learn the secret art of steelmaking. While there, Zoram learns the skills needed to become Keeper of the Sword. After a decade of education, he returns home to find himself an orphan.
Elizabeth Reid has bachelor's degrees in economics and history. She has worked in retail, medical billing, catering, education and business fields. Her favorite occupation is that of wife and mother.
Bereft and confused by personal and political politics, Zoram is forced to quickly make decisions regarding who is friend or foe. A childhood friend is now king, an unknown woman continually makes advances and his counterpart seems to have a split personality. However, one woman remains a constant. With her love and support, Zoram stands strong through the continuing upheavals and betrayal.
Keepers of the Sword focuses on the several days leading up to when Nephi and his brothers obtained the Brass Plates. While these events are briefly touched upon in three chapters of the Book of Mormon of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, author Guy Morgan Galli has written an amazing novel detailing those days intricacies. He interprets why the sword of Laban was so important, the type of woman Zoram s wife was and why Laban was going to meet the elders on the evening of his demise.
Galli's writing is easy to read, with battle descriptions that are involving page-turners. He does an excellent job weaving the perfect amount of history and culture into a scintillating novel. While much of the book is obviously fiction, his back story gives an entirely plausible explanation as to why Zoram chose to leave his life in Jerusalem and join virtual strangers in an unknown trek across the desert.
Keepers of the Sword contains clean language. Violence consists of several murders and some physical aggression towards women. There are a few sexual innuendos, but they don t lead to anything alarming.
Galli lives on the Wasatch Front with his wife and children. He is the author of fiction and non-fiction LDS books. --Deseret News
