    Summary

    In retrospect, it was probably a bad idea for two people with trust issues, insecurities, hoards of secrets, and intense truth-seeking tendencies to stay in the same house. But after Klavier forced Apollo to go to the emergency room, he didn't really have a choice of whether or not to extend the invitation. And Apollo didn't really have a choice of whether or not to accept it.

    Summary

    Once in every 100 trillion human births a human is born with psychic powers so completely off the scale that they can snap 8 kilometre long battleships in half with a snap of their fingers and obliterate entire armies with a thought, the rare and terrible Alpha Plus Psykers.

    Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Horatio Hoffman has dedicated his entire career to tracking down and destroying Alpha Plus psykers. This time however the stakes are higher than ever before as he must hunt down a mutant child Alpha Plus that the traitor legions have acquired and kill her before the chaos space marines can use this living psychic super weapon to devastate the Imperium of Man.

    On the other hand the Alpha Plus, just an innocent little mutant girl, only wishes to have peace for herself and her loving chaos worshipping family. Does she truly deserve to die just for being born an Alpha Plus and a mutant? Can't everyone just leave her alone to live the simple peaceful life she wishes?

    Summary

    No. A child's voice, soft and desperate. There is one last possibility... you mustn't give in!

    But what else could he do?

    Something chuckled softly, deep in his heart, and suddenly his mask burned. Akechi clutched at it, metal and glass melting between his fingers, rolling molten into his throat to choke back his scream.

    Well, now. This is familiar.
