I have been racking my brain and scouring the web, but unfortunately I only remember bits and pieces. So here is hoping you guys can help me out. The main character of the series is a barbarian. I think he was the son of a shaman or other magic user. I remember him being a bit of a playboy, and not very brave. He has a wolf familiar/companion. Magic in the setting is aided or enhanced by stones; I remember there were blue and red stones that did different things, but I don't remember what. The first book (I think) involved the character discovering an unconscious princess and needing to get her somewhere. At the end, she got transformed into a wolf as well. Sorry for the haphazardness of this. Basically all I remember is that it's a fantasy setting with a barbarian magic user (of some kind) as the main character. He has a wolf familiar, and the first book involves a princess. Thanks in advance, and let me know if I can provide any more clarification.
