Dr. Poy Sin: An Origin Story by award-winning Jarrod L. Edge (with contributions from his daughter Kari) is an entertaining Christian sci-fi/fantasy novel from the 0-2-10 Series, sandwiched between the end of origin story "Treyah" and the beginning of the origin story "Zeta 6". This is an intriguing tale that explores the nature of evil and a better future/eternity. We find Dr. Poy Sin questioned by renowned Cabreesie and Rosal, partners and Inquisitors. Poy is believed to have committed crimes against the Triani, nearly annihilating them, but is it true? Is it evil or a mistake? The partners are out to uncover the facts during this interrogation, while the Confederation and the Agents of ACTS look for the Ten. They discover surprising leads associated with Sin, Zeta 6, and company. But there is a secret weapon that the Agents of ACTS are about to unleash, and then, of course, there's the Unholy Trinity.
If you've always wanted to know the origin stories of these characters, Edge has created such a tale, replete with grit, substance, and questions to ponder: all in a compact, tightly-plotted package. This author skillfully combines a compelling Christian-themed story in a sci-fi/fantasy setting, adding images that illustrate and enrich the imaginative plot. There is no heavy-handed preaching going on, however. This is pure entertainment, with bio-weapons, references to faith, and well-drawn, interesting characters. It's impressive how Edge crafts so much in such a short amount of space. No wasted words here. The dialogue is meaningful and pointed, and the descriptions add to the atmosphere and believability of the worlds he has created, right down to little details like the slang words the characters use to insult one another, and the information about Dr. Poy Sin's name. I appreciated the characters' backstories, as this helps readers get closer to them and the conflicts they experience. The investigation itself is intriguing as well. For a book that will take you away to discover new worlds, ideas, and characters, or give you origin stories of the people you already know and like, you can't go wrong with this one. Treat your imagination to Dr. Poy Sin by Jarrod L. Edge.
