The Burial by Drew Montgomery navigates its readers through the emotional aspect of war. Unbeknownst to Eira, far from her home and family, a war was going on. As the prophet’s holy land came under attack by heathens, all men from her homeland were called upon to participate in the battle and defend their territories. Despite her pleadings and rebukes, Gwil, her husband, left for the war, leaving her and their three children behind.
Ten years back, a girl named Mary was kidnapped. During her captivity, she developed Stockholm Syndrome and fell in love with her kidnapper, Michael. By the time Detective Steven Bullard arrived to rescue her, things had turned dramatically bizarre. It appeared she had been brainwashed to the extent that she believed her captor to be her Archangel Michael. Steven’s failure to protect Mary sent him down the path of self-destruction.
