The Infinite Expanse Blog Tour

The Infinite Expanse by B.C. Powell 
The Journals of Krymzyn #2 
Publication date: March 31, 2015
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.

Genres: Fantasy, New Adult, Science Fiction


An enormous scorpion-like creature creeps over the ledge of the Canyon. Carmine colored with eight legs, the Schorachnia is at least twenty feet long from its head to the end of its body. Two long, flexible tails swing wildly from its rear, both with pear-shaped orange stingers growing from the ends.

In the front of the creature’s body, two giant pinchers at the end of crab-like arms nimbly pluck at the flowers. Fiery round eyes in a pointy triangular face intently focus on the task. Without seeming to notice us, the creature holds its pinchers over its mouth and drips liquid onto its tongue.

“Nectar seeps from the flowers,” Sash says. “They take it without ever damaging the vines. That one is called Glutano.”

“How do you know which one is which?”

“By the color of their stingers,” she replies. “The same seven colors as in the hair of the Serquatine.”

“Is it a man or a woman?” I ask.

“A male. All the Schorachnia are male, just as the Serquatine are all female.”

“Why is he ignoring us?”

“He’s not,” she answers. “He’s testing your patience.”

As though he heard me, the creature’s face suddenly juts out from his body, connected by a long scraggly neck. When he swings his head towards us, red and orange flickers inside his eyes like flames dancing over a fire. Sash holds a hand out, showing the creature the rainbow over her palm, so I do the same.

The Schorachnia turns away from us and uses his claws to pinch more beads of nectar from the flowers. After pouring the fluid into his mouth, he retracts his head into his body. I jump backwards when he suddenly spins and charges at us. 

Sash grabs me by the arm. “Never show fear in front of the Guardians,” she says calmly. “Only respect.”

The creature scurries across the crumbly red dirt and slides to a stop a few feet in front of me. While his eyes study Sash, both of his tails flail in the air behind him.

“Greetings, Glutano,” Sash says, bowing. “The Traveler Chase is here to venture into the Infinite Expanse.”

The Schorachnia doesn’t answer, but I flinch again when his head springs out and stops right in front of my face. His hypnotic eyes capture mine, absorbing my mind in their flames.

“This being is not of this world,” Glutano says in a dry and crusty voice, as though his throat is full of dirt.

Sash squeezes my arm and turns her face to me. When I glance into her eyes, I know the look she’s giving me. She’s telling me to speak for myself. 

I refocus on the Guardian. “I wasn’t born in this world,” I say, “but it’s the world I belong to now.”

Krymzyn
The Journals of Krymzyn #1 
Publication Date: October 4, 2014
Chase was twelve the first time he arrived in a strange land where dark, ominous clouds never move, ancient trees violently spring to life during Darkness, and people seem to live without emotion. Doctors tell him they’re hallucinations, but he knows his visits are real. She’s there—Sash—and she’s more real than anyone he’s ever known.

His visits stop but, as years pass, the memories haunt Chase. Without warning, the young man suddenly finds himself again in a world called Krymzyn. Arriving during Darkness, he’s rescued from death by the extraordinary, beautiful, but terrifying young woman he first met when he was twelve.

When Chase is thrust into the war of balance against vile creatures who threaten all who live there, Sash helps him understand his purpose in Krymzyn. A dark secret from the beginning of time reveals he might be able to stay there forever. To prove he belongs in Krymzyn and be with the only woman he can ever love, Chase will have to risk his own life in the ultimate battle. 


This book is a new adult work of fiction intended for mature audiences 17 and older.
