D.J. Butler Synopses: The Cunning Man is the first book in the Cunning Man series by D.J. Butler and Aaron Michael Ritchey. In the heart of the Great Depression, a mining town in Utah faces not only economic devastation but also a sinister and ancient evil lurking beneath its surface. As the town’s owners bicker over resources and power, the hardworking families suffer, struggling to survive in the face of hunger and poverty.

Amidst this bleak landscape, a mysterious figure named Hiram Woolley arrives. Hiram possesses a unique set of mystical abilities inherited from Scots-Irish folk wisdom and German braucher magic. With a powerful Bloodstone in his possession, he can discern lies the moment they are uttered.

Behind the façade of struggling farms and failed businesses, dark forces stir. Demons, curses, sorcerers, and unresolved wrongs plague the town, causing malevolence and destruction. Everyday solutions like groceries and carpentry won’t be enough to combat this malevolence. The town needs someone with deeper insight and power.

Hiram Woolley is that man. A person who has experienced sorrow and faced the horrors of war, he combines his profound wisdom with his arcane abilities to confront the malevolent presence that threatens the town. Armed with his knowledge of magic, he delves into the depths of the unknown to unravel the dark secrets and dispel the sinister forces at play.

The Wilding Probate is a standalone novel by D.J. Butler. In the rural northwest, Bucky McCrae is a no-nonsense woman who stands her ground against anyone. She doesn’t put up with nonsense from her laid-back and charming father, who runs his law practice out of the back of a bowling alley. She also deals with her suitor, Evil Patten, who desperately wants to win her heart and make it through the summer without any accidents on his construction job.

However, Bucky’s toughness and resilience are put to the ultimate test when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a stone-cold killer. As danger lurks around every corner, Bucky must draw on her wit and strength to outsmart the deadly adversary determined to harm her. In the face of peril, she will not back down, and her resourcefulness and determination become her greatest assets in the fight for survival.

In Time Trials by D.J. Butler and M.A. Rothman, Marty Cohen, a once gifted linguist and student of ancient military strategy, left the world of academia to open a woodworking shop, seeking solace away from the politics and rivalries that marred his previous career. Content with his new life, Marty takes care of his shop, indulges in occasional war games, and finds happiness in simple pleasures. However, his peaceful existence is disrupted when he starts experiencing mysterious visions that rob him of sleep.

Suddenly, Marty receives an unexpected summons to return to Egypt. An off-the-grid archaeological dig, funded by an eccentric financier, has uncovered texts that could be the earliest discovered in Egypt’s history. They offer Marty a tempting amount of money to fly out and take a look. Despite turning his back on academia, the financial struggle of being a small business owner during a recession leaves Marty unable to decline the offer.

Upon examining the ancient texts, Marty finds that they open doors to more visions and lead to a remarkable journey. The ragtag team of archaeologists embarks on an extraordinary adventure to protohistoric North Africa—a harsh and drying land plagued by monstrous creatures. Humanity is in dire need of champions to confront these overlords of terror.

As the team faces this terrifying struggle against the monsters, they soon realize that it is merely a precursor to a greater challenge. Marty and his companions have been chosen as champions of Earth, entrusted with a monumental task that will decide humanity’s fate. They are destined to run a gauntlet on behalf of all of humanity, and failure could mean the extinction of their species.
