Turning Point - Warhammer 40k fanfiction (brought into book format for easier reading)|
In the nightmare future of the 41st millennium, mankind teeters upon the brink of extinction. The galaxy spanning Imperium of Man is beset on all sides by ravening aliens, and threatened from within by malevolent creatures and heretic rebels. Only the strength of the immortal Emperor of Terra stands between humanity and its annihilation. The Imperial Guard acts as a buffer between the darkness and the common folk of the Imperium. Ordinary and extraordinary men and women fight for the Emperor, for his domains, for their comrades and sometimes just for themselves.
Joseph Vintros, once a promising soldier from humble beginnings, deserts the Imperial Guard when he uncovers a plot against him. Desperate for freedom, he joins with a rogue trader as a gun hand, traveling the stars in search for a new life. But just as his new found freedom begins to shape his fate, the Imperium of man seems reluctant to let one of their brightest sons escape their grasp. As several agents of the Imperium track his every step, secrets from his past illuminate a new path of tremendous importance... but can he survive long enough to walk it?
