Bastial Explosion: The Rhythm of Rivalry, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

In Bastial Explosion, we see the return to the original format of the first book, Bastial Energy: it's told from the points of view of multiple characters. We find ourselves back in the Academy with Effie, Steffen, Reela, and their friends. On the Krepps' side of the story, we follow Zoke, who has sided with humans, and his sister Zeti, who stays loyal to the Krepps' cause of finding and eating all the Slugary they can find. While other characters are integral to the plot development, in my opinion, Effie and Zeti steal the show in this book. While Effie was the most interesting character in the first book, despite her being of secondary importance, and Zeti was written in somewhat subdued tones, with her brother outshining her, now they become much more developed and important to the plot. Through their transformation alone we can trace what is happening in the story and where it is headed--the all out war.
The build up to the war is interesting to read because it happens rather naturally, gathering the steam slowly, until the end of the book, where we can see how the author handles description of a large battle. Which is rather well, BTW. There are some revelations, and questions answered in this book, and a rather spectacular titular explosion that takes place. However, as always, the main strength of Bastial/Sartious novels is character development: patient, detailed, and relevant to the story.
It will be interesting to see what will happen in the next installment of the series, with Cleve finally being back into the fray and the promise of the upcoming hostilities finally delivered.
Good read, recommended.
I loved every single book! The character development was excellent, with several conflicts needing resolution, and the resolutions made sense. There are passages where you'll feel the sorrow, scenes where you'll feel the love, and arenas where you'll celebrate the victories. Narro has an interesting take on Mages (not wizards), Psychics, Chemists (the physicians and other scientists that work with chemicals and potions), and of course, Warriors (which are like all warriors - swords, archery, etc). There are even elves with attitude... and psyche. Watch out for these guys, and hope the ones you run into are the good ones.
