Description Isle of Savages by T. BriarEleven souls are shipwrecked on an island teeming with sub-human cannibals. Who will survive to tell the tale? On July 20, 20— a charter school’s sponsored sail from San Diego to Hawaii hits a reef during a violent storm. Sixteen souls abandon ship. Nine students, along with the hated captain and first mate, wash up on what they believe is a deserted island. Separated into three groups by circumstance and mutual distrust, treachery and death lurk for all. Over the course of a single day, one student betrays all the others. Another drowns. Two others get ambushed by a great white shark. And, like falling dominoes, the captain, first mate, and six students fall prey to a tribe of bloodthirsty cannibals. In the face of almost certain death, who will escape the isle of savages to tell the tale?
Praise Isle of Savages by T. Briar“Freaking Amazing! This books was such a wild ride from page one. So many twists and turns that you just can't figure out what the hell is going to happen next! It was so hard to put down and very, very well written. I am very picky with the books I read, I know I say that a lot, but it's true. This book met every single one of my expectations and then some. With the characters, you either really felt for them, or you held seething hatred for them. It was like the main characters couldn't seem to catch a break and the villains of the story kept getting a leg up. It was driving me crazy! I was found yelling at my kindle, cursing, clenching my fists, all because this story was so easy to get into! In fact, it was hard NOT to! This is not a happy story, by any means. There is so much death and destruction and it's written in great detail. So if you get wigged out easily, this might not be the book for you. Me, I love this kind of stuff. The blood, the gore, the chaos, this book had it all! Definitely 5 out of 5 stars for me!”- Amanda, Rabid Readers Book Blog
About T. BriarBriar spent his formative years in the treacherous worlds of The Savage Sword of Conan, The Warlord, and Jonah Hex comics. So he’s been fascinated with action adventure stories for most of his life. From there, he eventually discovered Jack London, Louis L’amour and Jack Higgins. These days he’s devouring thriller novels by James Rollins, Clive Cussler and a host of other adventure writers. This led him to start writing at an early age and he didn’t stop until he saw his name in print. Although, it wasn’t in the thriller genre. Not at first. But it was always a given that he’d eventually write and publish a thriller. It just took him a few extra years to get around to it. He lives in South Georgia with his wonderful wife of 25 years.

Here is an excerpt for you to read. Sit back with a cuppa and enjoy.
Isle of Savages Excerpt #1
“It’s okay, Mia,” Eric whispered, trying to shush her crying. He sat on the ground enveloping the terrified girl inside his arms while cradling her head against his chest. He rocked gently back and forth as one would do to soothe a frightened child. She was sobbing hysterically, chest hitching, whole body trembling. Keri, seemingly over the worst of her shock, knelt at his side, staring at her best friend with equal parts empathy and apprehension.
At least Keri seems mostly all right. Eric kept rocking Mia and whispering soothing words. But this is bad. Really bad. Maybe even worse than really, really bad. He honestly didn’t know what to do, say, or how to explain away what Mia had discovered. Much less how to make the girls believe everything was going to be okay now. He couldn’t even make himself believe it any longer.
Inadvertently, his gaze was drawn toward the base of the statue standing directly in front of them. He was careful to let none of the fear the statue summoned up to show on his face. He would not reveal the least bit of apprehension because he could not afford to. The girls needed a staunch display of courage to allay their fears. If he succumbed, then they were all lost. Secretly, he hoped for a quick rescue, like, anytime right now would be most excellent.
The statue could hardly be seen from the jungle’s edge since it had been so carefully hid amid the vegetation. But on this side, the front side of the statue that faced inland, almost no vegetation encroached, like maybe someone kept the undergrowth cropped back so the statue could easily be seen from this direction. Even more troubling, a well-worn, narrow dirt path leading from somewhere out of islands’ interior abruptly ceased at the base of the three feet wide and ten feet tall block of chiseled, black rock.
Nothing that he could think of made any sense for the statue being there, except that perhaps, it served as some sort of primitive blockade to keep whomever traveling the path from continuing on to the beach. Which didn’t make a whole lot of sense to his twenty-first century mind. There were no undiscovered primitive societies left in the world. The National Geographical Society and its contemporaries had long since discovered them all.
So what does make sense? Someone had to have carved the pillar, made the path, and kept it well maintained.
As much as he wanted to believe the intricate carvings on the pillar weren’t manmade, instead, were the effects of wind and rain, the irrefutable evidence stared him hatefully in the face.
Without question, the carvings on the pillar were terrible to look upon. And carvings they certainly were beyond any shadow of doubt. They started at the base where two broad feet were chiseled out of the black rock. Powerful muscled legs stretched upward from the feet. A carved loincloth covered the groin area. The waistline was thick and muscled, the chest and arms as well. But it was the horrible expression etched onto the face that threatened to smash Eric’s courage to smithereens.
Fully three and a half feet tall from the crown of its head to the bottom of its chin, and approximately two and a half wide from cheekbone to cheekbone, the face possessed the most sinister-looking arched eyebrows and eyes, along with a thick, aquiline nose, and thin, stretched lips that were peeled back to show off its many pointed teeth. It appeared to be glaring down at them as it hurled angry curses.
Yet, that wasn’t the worst of it…oh no, not by a country mile.
An immensely hairy, half rotten human head rested inside the open mouth, just beyond the rows of teeth. Possessing fierce features, it sat upright on the stump of the neck, its dead black eyes staring down the path leading inland. One eyelid was half-closed, a large fly canvassing the pupil. Other flies continually buzzed about, landing and flying, flying and landing on other parts of the face. Beneath its broad nose and thick lips that seemed to be peeled back in agony, dried rivulets of blood tattooed the chin. The skin appeared an ashen gray. Smudges of dirt covered the face as if the head had bounced on muddy ground before being placed inside the mouth. All of its teeth were filed sharp like the ones belonging to the statue.
Eric suppressed a shudder, heart in his throat, the skin on his arms prickling with goose bumps. Yes, the statue inspired horror, but the skull inside its growling mouth inspired abject and utter terror.
