Stories of Xyn: The Origin and the Absolution is the first book in the Stories of Xyn series.
In Xyn, you are what The Council makes of you. Xyn is home to the Xynites, a society that does its best to please The Council. The Council controls each citizen’s Board of Choice, a cognitive response device that determines when and how Xynites make decisions, from the mundane to the crucial.
Xyn’s population consists of two main groups, Xynites formed on Xyn and those who arrived on Xyn from planets throughout the Ursa Ro star system. The Council, a governmental body, was created to maintain the balance of society. Together, co-founders Edyn Maternys and Sylas Huxley invented the Board of Choice. This cognitive response device determines when and how Xynites make decisions, from the mundane to the crucial.
As remnants of Earth begin to find their way into Xynite society, peace begins to break down. Cayn Armistyce, a Human-born Xynite elite and right-hand person for The Council, is tasked with controlling the Board of Choice for Indygo Dawkyns Vega, a fiery soul with a disdain for authority.
Life begins to intertwine for Cayn, Indygo, and their companions. The future of Xyn is theirs for the taking, but the past and present want a cut-in, too.
This story, told from multiple perspectives across several timelines, is a journey to save what the soul cares most for - memories.
