Evil lurks in the desolate Barrens of Krymzyn. For millions of Eras, predators with insatiable cravings have prowled the wasteland. When a traitor of the Delta enters their realm, the solitary beasts may finally have a leader to unite them.

As the new order emerges in the Barrens, Chase and Sash begin their lives together. While Chase fights to prove he belongs in Krymzyn, the power inside Sash flourishes in ways no one could have imagined. But vengeance from the wasteland is soon unleashed upon them.

After Chase is trapped deep in the Barrens, his only escape is into the Infinite Expanse. Unaware of the deathly perils that take shape there, he may be lost forever. For Sash to return him from the endless wilderness, she’ll have to harness a mystical energy not seen since the beginning of time.

My Thoughts


 I was lucky enough, and SMART enough, to be a part of the Krymzyn tour, and I fell head over heels for that amazing story. When I received the tour sign-ups for The Infinite Expanse, I jumped all over it. I was just as amazed with the world and the characters that B.C. Powell has created this second time around, maybe even more so. 

 This is one of those books that I don't want to give too many details on. I loved experiencing it all firsthand, with no heads up about what was going to happen. I barely even glanced at the synopsis. I didn't need to. I knew that I would love this book as much as I did the first one. And I was right. B.C. Powell has written some amazing characters. Every single one of the Krymzyn characters are unique, and interesting. In a world where everyone lives be a set schedule, where there are no televisions or internet, no clocks or books, no urban dictionaries, the characters still have qualities about them that make them unique and interesting. The world, Krymzyn, is remarkable. The Beginning of the world, how it came to be. The sustaining trees, the different Purposes. Even the color of the grass. All of it is intriguing, and highly unique, and I loved every description I was given. 

 Sash and Chase are such awesome characters. They are both fierce, humble, loyal and protective. Sash is generous, and willing to learn and to teach. They give each other what they need, and have such a great balance between them. They make this story as special to me as it is. 

 The Infinite Expanse was fantastic, no doubt about it. There were some parts, especially at the beginning, that were a whole lot of information. It made the pacing slower than I normally like, but I feel it is necessary, especially with such a complex world. I was itching for some action, but my mind was still 100% in the story. Once it picks up the pace, it is sustained really well. And we end up with another amazing story.

 The Infinite Expanse was the perfect sequel. B.C. Powell knows how to write, how to draw out your emotions, and he creates a world that you can close your eyes and picture with perfect clarity. His characters are incredibly well-written, complex, and relate-able. I loved this book, and I absolutely recommend this series. 

 Warning: There are sexual situations in the story, and some language, and violence. More suitable to the 18+ age group.
