"A 'Hallows' prequel fans should not miss"

Fresh Fiction Review

The Turn
Kim Harrison

Reviewed by Annie Tegelan
Posted May 17, 2017

Fantasy Urban

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 as whole.

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 think that's because Harrison was trying to hook new readers in with this book. Nevertheless, if you're a Hollows fan, there's no reason for you to be missing out on this book.

SUMMARY

#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.
