About this book: 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.
5 out of 5 beautiful golden starts!!!
Oh yes! Oh My Gawd, yes please! This book was exactly what I needed! Something new created from something old!
Let me say that at first I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy reading the beginning of it all. Of course when I saw it fist that dear Harrison is releasing another book for her “The Hollows” series I was thrilled!!! But then I saw it was a prequel… suddenly I wasn’t so sure at all. Y’all probably are wondering why? It’s simple, really. I have read and re-read this whole series more than once, 3 or maybe 4 times. I know and love and hate the characters, some I’ve learned to love. I KNOW THEM. And it was over, although I was really, really sad when the series ended. I’m still missing Rachel and her crew. In my opinion this is one of the best series ever written, hands down. The world building, plots, everything is perfect. It reflects the author’s creativity and just leaves you in awe. And after missing these books for a long time I almost came to terms with the idea that it’s over.
But yes, I gave it a shot and I want to thank NetGalley and the publisher for providing me an ARC to give my honest review.
And I couldn’t be more honest than to say that I LOVE IT! It’s perfect! This book gives us an insight of what was happening before the turn. How ‘the turn’ even happened, and why. Another thing that I loved was recognizing the key players that will appear in the series as it progresses. SPOILER ALERT! ----à it was so nice seeing Al! loool
Another thing I would recommend is that if you only now joining us, the die hard “The Hollows” fans, this book should not be read as a first in the series. Maybe the author won’t agree, but in my humble opinion, this book explains a lot that you only learn while reading the series. And I think you should not know some stuff before you know it, if that makes sense! J
It will be more fun to learn it as you go, I promise.
So get your copy of this book and start reading!
