#1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to her beloved Hollows series with The Turn, the official prequel to the series that will introduce fans and readers to a whole new side of Rachel Morgan's world as they've never seen it before!
Can science save us when all else fails?
Trisk and her hated rival, Kalamack, have the same goal: save their species from extinction.
Death comes in the guise of hope when a genetically modified tomato created to feed the world combines with the government's new tactical virus, giving it an unexpected host and a mode of transport. Plague takes the world, giving the paranormal species an uncomfortable choice to stay hidden and allow humanity to die, or to show themselves in a bid to save them.
Under accusations of scientific misconduct, Trisk and Kal flee across a plague torn United States to convince leaders of the major paranormal species to save their supposedly weaker kin, but not everyone thinks humanity should be saved.
Kal surreptitiously works against her as Trisk fights the prejudices of two societies to prove that not only does humanity have something to offer, but that long-accepted beliefs against women, dark magic, and humanity itself can turn to understanding; that when people are at their worst that the best show their true strength, and that love can hold the world together as a new balance is found.
I absolutely loved being back in this world and see how it all started. We’re told bits and pieces throughout the series, but we get to see first hand how tomatoes messed everything up.
I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with Kalamack. But this one…. the stunts he pulls are insane. Like throat punch insane. I do love Trisk. She’s intelligent and doesn’t back down when she’s challenged.
There are twists and turns throughout the book, and they’ll give you a great appreciation for The Hollows and our favorite characters. And the pixies definitely take the show in this book. They may be my favorite species in these books.
