Krymzyn by BC Powell
Publication date: October 4th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult, Science Fiction
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.
~ Review by Angela ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
This book is so insanely different from anything that I have ever read that it’s hard to write the review for it. The synopsis doesn’t really do the book justice. It’s so much more than this condensed version. I really enjoyed the dynamic in this story. We get the story told from Chase’s perspective from when he is young up to adulthood. He is a seemingly normal kid who has an abnormal situation. He suffers these “seizures” of sorts and ends up in a foreign land that he can’t believe is real. But it is.
The imagery that BC Powell portrays in this book is so vivid that you feel as though you are there watching everything happen with your own eyes. The world of Krymzyn is a very odd place but you don’t feel like it’s confusing or feel disoriented when reading about it. I would love to see some of these images from the book made into pictures. I can imagine them in my head but they are so beautiful and interesting that they should be available for all to see. This would make an excellent graphic novel. I give this 5 books.
