THE TURN is the prequel story to The
Hollows series by Kim Harrison. If
you're a fan of Harrison's series then you definitely do
not want to be missing
this story. Although this is listed as a prequel story and
the events happen
before the rest of the Hollows series, I would highly
suggest reading the rest
of the series before this one. I feel like this story is
more of an extra, which
gives better insight to some of the characters and the world
in this series.
However, if you were to read this before the rest of the
series, I think there's
a chance that readers would get confused or spoiled.
Now the Hollows series is written in first person from
Rachel Morgan POV.
However, this story is written in Trisk's POV so that's
another reason why I
say to read the other books first; this one isn't exactly
reflective of the series
I liked Trisk's but I also found it hard to be in the head
of another character
set in the same world. I think it offers a refreshing take
on the series, but it
did feel slightly odd not to be in Rachel's head.
While I do love the Hollows series, THE TURN isn't
my favorite of the series.
It doesn't have the same punch as the other books do, but I
because Harrison was trying to hook new readers in with this
Nevertheless, if you're a Hollows fan, there's no
reason for you to be missing
out on this book.
#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 you
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, Kal, have the same goal: save
their species from extinction.
But 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 rises, giving the
paranormal species the 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, and 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.
