Krymzyn by BC Powell - Review

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.


My Review:
*I was provided a complementary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Krymzyn is the type of book that you read, and then you re-read... and then just keep #fangirling over. The plot is so original, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to review it.
We find that our main character Chase has terrible headaches, and they send him to the land of Krymzyn. While he is there, he meets a lot of people, some awesome, some.... not.
After a bit we learn that there is another reason he may be traveling to Krymzyn, he finds out that he has a medical reason for his travels. Are they real? Is he just sick?
Oh, read on!
I love that we get to travel between worlds with Chase, and that we see the drastic differences in him personally while he moves through them. This is a fantastic debut novel and I can't wait to read more!!!!!
Grab your copy, like now!
