The Turn: The Hollows Begins with Deathav Kim Harrison95Tillfälligt slut – klicka "Bevaka" för att få ett mejl så fort boken går att köpa igen.Kim Harrison returns to her beloved Hollows series with the official prequel. This 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. An unmissable story for fans of the Hollows series - discover Rachel Morgan's world as you've never seen it before . . .

Kim Harrison, dark urban fantasy author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Hollows series, was born in Detroit and, after gaining her bachelor's in the sciences, she moved to South Carolina, where she remained until recently returning to Michigan because she missed the snow. When not at her desk, Kim is most likely to be found landscaping her new/old Victorian home, in the garden, or out on the links.
