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 a 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 a 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.

~Thanks to the author for providing a free copy in exchange for a honest review~

Wow, I have no clue where to start with this one. This is one of those books that I don't want to give too many details on. 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 with the first one and I was right. B.C. Powell has written some amazing characters. Every single one of the Krymzyn characters is just unique, and interesting. I haven't read a book where people are like this. 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 absolutely 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 highly intriguing. The descriptive is just amazing, you really do visualize every bit of it.

Sash and Chase are epic characters. I just love them. Both of them are fierce, humble, loyal and protective. Sash is generous, and willing to listen and learn the ways of Chase and to teach her ways. Together they have what they need, and have such a great balance between them.

The Infinite Expanse was fantastic, no doubt about it. There were some parts, especially at the beginning, that were a whole lot of information and it made me feel like the story was going too slow. But I feel it is necessary, especially with an extremely complex world. I was desperate for some action and even went to another book for a day, but my mind was still 100% in/with 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- Recommended for mature audiences
