Robert L Brielmaier, a retired teacher and instructor of the social sciences, has completed his new book “Burnished Barbarians”: an engaging novel expertly designed to be read with equal enjoyment in either of two modes.

Robert L Brielmaier says that his past experience of instructing teenagers and young adults is a keystone to the success of his writing. Through actively framing material in a way to reach the diverse young minds of his pupils, he discovered the power of story-telling to relay a more memorable message. Brielmaier says of his approach in this novel, “Like the fairy tale, myth, or legend, this work comments on and criticizes features of our present society. Behind the protective veneer of describing some totally fictitious or distant past, the critic can censure more sharply, contending his writing shows only weaknesses or evils occurring in some alien world or a completely different era.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Robert L Brielmaier’s brilliant tale dynamically rolls out the adventure, violence, and drama. However, this novel that can easily be classified as an extraordinary fantasy tale and a sensational coming of age story at once holds double-edged meaning and can easily have its themes compared to our present world.

Beneath the escapades in an unknown place by fictional characters lie deep and severe criticisms of present day society. The challenge of making these connections will both engage, perplex and astound all who take on that quest.

Readers who wish to experience this intriguing work can purchase “Burnished Barbarians” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
