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.

I asked BC, "Please explain your fascination with sci-fi fantasy"

Why I’m Passionate about Science Fiction Fantasy
As a young reader, “The Chronicles of Narnia” and “A Wrinkle in Time” opened my mind to the possibilities of the fantasy genre. As a teenager, “Dune” introduced me to pure science fiction, while “The Lord of the Rings” took me on the most incredible reading journey I’ve ever been on. As much as I love many books set in the real world, “The Sun Also Rises,” “The Outsiders,” and “To Kill a Mockingbird” among my favorites, science fiction fantasy presents an opportunity to do something no other genre can.
The genre gives the author a chance to suspend the reader’s belief in reality. Our imaginations can run free without the boundaries and limits of scientific laws. An entire new world can be created, the impossible suddenly part of everyday existence, and the different elements of that world shaped into something believable. If the world is properly developed, a vivid picture of every detail can be brought to life in a reader’s imagination. As the story becomes almost hyperreal, something more important happens.
My goal as a writer is to trigger an emotional response in the reader. As a reader, I want to feel true empathy and caring for the characters, and hopefully learn something important about myself while I share their journeys. When a fantastical world becomes real in a reader’s mind, a very deep emotional connection to the story can evolve.
The terror we feel from a vampire in pursuit of our beloved protagonist, the exhilaration of traveling across the universe at faster than the speed of light, or the sheer adventure of fighting a dragon are all emotional responses sparked by something outside the confines of the real world. The more we believe the in the imaginary or impossible, the more emotionally vulnerable we become.
We live in an incredible era of mankind. Technology has grown by leaps and bounds over the past thirty years. A huge part of our education, communication, and entertainment is now based on technology. Advancements and ideas thought to be impossible just half a century ago are our reality. But technology can never replace imagination, and the more our imagination expands, the more we’re able to feel the real world around us. Nothing in my life has had a greater impact on my imagination than great reads in science fiction fantasy.

  3. I have yet to try The Chronicles of Narnia but I would like to at some point! Personally I have read the first book in this series - Krymzyn, but I didn't like it too much and ended up a bit bored, which means I am not going to try this one :(
