Brian Cary’s Savvy Barbarian
Because smart people
Life’s too short for boring books
I read a couple books a year, so they need to be great. Most highschool teachers should be flogged for forcing boring down their student’s throats.
I write the kind of books that I want to read: start interesting and get me hooked, make a great story and don’t scrimp on the epic ending.
Why buy one of my books? They’re fun. I have a goal, that is to get you so hooked on the story that you’ll call in sick to work once you get started on reading one of my books. Don’t want to believe me because I’m the author and therefore biased?
No problem, here’s what other fans have to say.
What a fun ride! Brian Cary has crafted a rollicking adventure-story that has the reader eagerly flipping pages and laughing out loud at the antics of his hazard-prone characters. Eschewing the oft-laborious pace of many fantasy stories, this tale engages the reader with real and consistent action, and doesn’t make him/her slog through chapter after chapter waiting for something to happen to advance the plot. Fantastic humor! I hope more adventures are in the works–I’ll be reading them for sure!
If you’re not looking to delve into a Tolkien tome, but want to spend some time with pointy-eared elves, or short, furry-footed halflings, then the Wailing Willow Tavern is a great place to head! A fun and quirky fantasy tale filled with all of the things you know and love from previous gatherings of folk from lore. So grab a pint, put your feet up, and head on in.
Surprisingly Fun Action Packed Adventure
Wow! If you are looking to get lost in a new fantasy world look no further! Midglaive is a place that feels familiar, and very lived in, while filled with intrigue and wonder. The Book is fast paced, full of action, and fun! Brian Cary knows how to set the scene, and write engaging and believable dialog. His characters are timeless, original and unforgettable. You will truly be hooked and left wanting to know what happens next! Regardless of what genre you like to read, “Strangers in Midglaive” has something for everyone!

The Wailing Willow
First book in the Tomes of Brynjar series!
Wulfric only wanted a cold beverage, a warm meal, and a hot tavern-maiden to pine over, instead he was trapped in a dungeon, surrounded by evil, and precariously low on torch-light.
In a world filled with snobbish elves and magical dangers, the Wailing Willow Tavern was supposed to be a warm reprieve during a cold winter journey. But Wulfric does what he always does—he gets himself into more trouble than his brother Dainn can keep him out of. Things escalate quickly as Wulfric, Dainn, and a grumpy dwarf named Angus are unwittingly thrust into an ancient mystery with sinister consequences.
A tenacious evil, which refuses to die, demands its ambitions be fulfilled, and it will sacrifice anyone to get what it wants. The lives of innocent humans, halflings, dwarves and elves hang in the balance. Yet death may not be the worst thing they face.
Inglorious heroes and bad decisions. What could go wrong?
