Bastial Explosion: The Rhythm of Rivalry: Book 3 by B.T. Narro, Science Fiction, July 2014
In the first half of this audio clip, young mages Effie and her teacher, Marie, practice throwing fireballs. In the second half of this audio clip, Master Chemist Jack meets Zoke the Krepp (Krepps are lizard people) before discussing a mission with the young chemists Stefan and Marratrice.
Book 3 of the high fantasy Rhythm of Rivalry series.
As Effie and her roommates learn firsthand the true savagery of their enemies, anger and grief threaten to overtake them. While dealing with internal turmoil, each student also must come to terms with his or her role in battle…and soon. The Krepps have twice the numbers of Kyrro, and the frightfully strong creatures are eager to kill.
After managing to anger the entire Academy during his introduction, Zoke learns that behaving like a Krepp makes him more of an outcast with his new allies in Kyrro than he was with his own race. With his sister Zeti on the opposing side as the gruesome events of war unfold, soon the only thing the siblings have in common is a waning hope that they won’t see each other on the battlefield. But before a clash of unprecedented proportions can occur, something unheard of is discovered lingering deep below Tenred that may change everything.
B T (Brian Thoele) Narro was born in 1985, in San Francisco, California, where he still lives. He loves intricate stories with surprises, humor, romance, but above all, deeply developed characters and worlds that are so real they seem to live on once the novel is finished. This is what he strives for as a writer.
Brian’s passion for fantasy started in middle school. He had a lot of inspiring teachers, one of which was his sixth grade English teacher, Rick Riordan (long before he was famous), who loved to enthrall his students by masterfully telling Greek myths from memory.
By sophomore year in college, Brian had finished his first full-length novel. Although immensely proud of it at the time, Brian eventually realized his friends were being generous when they told him it needed work. Years after graduating with his bachelor’s degree in creative writing, he continued to scribble down scenes for the same story as he worked as a customer support representative at a computer game company.
