Book Description

The story continues six years in the wake of the night of treachery and the greatest storm the planet of Stritonoly has ever witnessed.
Princess Becki has grown in these years. She learns that her powers over the men that hold her captive may bring her what she has been waiting for, perhaps for longer than she herself realises.
As the story unfolds, the characters discover truths about themselves, some terrifying, others prophetic.

"Once more, we see the master at work. William L.K turns out a well crafted tale that's simply fascinating and charming. The Stritonoly Chronicles is both fantastic and utterly believable, making this, the second in the series, the launchpad for some serious action to come in the next book."

5.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction and More February 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Barok is an Acidel who is tired of being a slave to the people on his planet. In his words, "I am a creature of this planet just as you"

In this sequel to The Eye of the Storm you will get to know the Acidels better and you will join in the anticipation of a New World order. There is a tiny speck headed to the planet. What is it? What does it mean to the Acidels or to the planet's people?

This is a science fiction book with many underlying themes which the author presents in such a believable way, that you will feel that you are involved in the action. It is truly science fiction at it's best and you will not want to miss it.

I highly recommend Barok's Exodus (The Stritonoly Chronicles).

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first! May 27, 2011
By Maria
Format:Kindle Edition
Barok's Exodus is the second book in the Stritonoly Chronicles by William L.K. The first in the series was The Eye of the Storm, which I reviewed earlier. Barok's Exodus takes up six years after the destructive storm and failed takeover attempt of Princess Becki. The Stritonians have a new Czar and have built a new capital, returning to business as usual with the acidel slave race mining the precious prurock stones. Princess Becki has been in jail the whole time, and little Barok the acidel is still mining prurock. This doesn't hold true for long as Princess Becki schemes for her freedom and Barok begins a life-altering journey.

I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series, probably because I already was acquainted with the characters and had an attachment to them. The author gets the action going quickly and keeps the suspense tight throughout. I read it in one sitting, not because it was a short book (which it is), but because I had to find out what would happen to Barok and Princess Becki. The ending wasn't very satisfactory, but it did set me up waiting impatiently for the third book to be released, which it was on May 19th!

*Disclaimer: I received this ebook from the author for free. I was not required to write a positive review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The magical story continues . . . May 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed Eye of the Storm, and now Barok's Exodus is the second installment of William L. K.'s fantastical story of the planet with the purple haze surrounding it( get the reference to Jimmy Hendrix?) and the mushroom people(Acidel) which is a play on the acid that mushrooms produce along with 'el' which means some sort of god. Reading this series is so much fun. It's like entering a strange new world that's a play on our world.

There are so many layers to dig through yet you can enjoy it on the surface layer as just a story of good vs evil with some dimensional lives ala Jane Roberts, or you can try to figure out how the brilliant author tied in everything from drugs to violin music. Yes, I finally figured out why one of the main characters was named Barok, and it's because we are told that Becki, in her earth life, played violin.

Speaking of the surface level, here's a bit of the plot. At the end of book one, all hell breaks loose by way of a huge planet-wide storm that brings all the human craziness to a head. People kill each other because they've gone crazy over the Acidel sweat. Or they're just crazy with power and the sweat is a good excuse to start killing each other.

We return to Stritonoly 6 years later and princess Becki has gone nutty and is under house arrest. She has more personalities than even she can handle, and not many of them are up to any good.

The star of this installment is Barok, the innocent mushroom-man who gets tired of being a slave and takes off. He has quite an adventure and we are introduced to some new and very nasty beings who can read minds.

Will Barok be able to make it home to save his people, and his bride? We're also introduced a Mesjasz(Messiah?

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Barok's Exodus from Eva's Sanctuary February 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second book in the Stritonoly Chronicles set on the planet of the same name (the purple planet). If you are not familiar with the books, I did a review on The Eye of the Storm in an earlier post. I have read several sci-fi books in the last few weeks. This means I have read more of them then I have read in my entire life so far. Lets just suffice it to say, I have been converted. I will no longer cringe when I am told someone is reading sci-fi. I figure this is a good thing when I have opened my mind to something new.

The last story ended with a catastrophic storm that brought ruin to the planet and a new Czar was appointed. This story begins six years after the event. The Princess is confined to her chambers with guards because of the havoc she inflicted on her family. She has a bit of a split personality and you never know what she is up to. She also has those womanly wiles that makes her capable of getting men to do what she wants. On the surface, they think she cares for them. Underneath, she thinks them idiots.

If you remember Barok from the last book, he is the head of the acidels; the slave laborers of the planet. He waits for the opportunity to escape and leaves his mate behind. He runs into this dense forest where the spiderons live. He makes a pact with them and is allowed to live. Is he really making a pact with the devil?

Becki is kidnapped by beings posing as someone else. It will interesting to see how far each of them will go to get what they want. We can already see Becki's womanly magic working on the leader. Another Eve in the making? Will the planet survive or will the apocalypse be near?

The story flows quite nicely from the last book and the storyline continues to flow as we get nearer to the next installment.

More About the Author

Hello All! Thank you so much for visiting my author page. I love hearing from readers so please feel free to contact me either on my facebook page or twitter with any questions or comments.

I live in the suburbs of New York with my lovely wife and two amazing children. I began writing creatively as a teenager and have been fortunate enough to have written and produced several successful plays and musicals in the NY area. I earned my B.A. and M.S. from Dowling College. Currently, I'm a professional musician on the weekends and an author during the week.

The Stritonoly Chronicles is probably my favorite work so far. They begin with the book, "The Eye of the Storm." I like the fact that these books do not comfortably fit into one particular genre. The trilogy is not at all a typical sci-fi/fantasy.

My hope is to have a new novel out before the end of the summer. I am working on a mystery/thriller and I am having a blast with it!

HAPPY READING!
