“At turning points, we face decisions. Here, three of the Castle's immortals - Lightning, Simoon and Comet - relate pivotal moments of their lives. A deadly chariot race forces Lightning to choose between his lover and his family; Simoon must decide what value he places on friendship, and Jant faces the consequence of his decisions to betray others. As a bonus, three short tales of the immortals' deeds are extracted from the Histories written by Simoon. But which are myth, and which reality?”
‘Turning Point’ contains two stories never before available in english: ‘Velocity’ and ‘The Wheel of Fortune’; and two stories published for the first time: ‘The Bliss of Solitude’ and ‘Tales of the Immortals’.
