#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!



  • I initially enjoyed it, but then got annoyed with the forced inclusion of the Hollows characters, similar to how Lucas attempted it with the Star Wars prequels. Trenton Lee Kalamack is simply despicable and would be better off as a demon familiar. It doesn't make sense how he could be friends with Rachel's dad. Additionally, there are several plot flaws beyond this. The inderlanders have been aware of the elves for centuries, so it doesn't seem plausible that they could suddenly disappear without a trace in just one generation, as Harrison suggests. While I still found it enjoyable, I couldn't help but think it had as many plot holes as the last season of Game of Thrones.
  • I've never come across an origin story as terrible as this one. It makes George Lucas' actions appear benevolent in comparison to what the author did. I found this story extremely frustrating. It's the kind of book where the most despicable character in the entire Hollows series manages to escape consequences in the end. I was filled with so much anger throughout this book that I highly doubt I'll be giving any of the author's future works a chance. Also, on a side note, it's quite disheartening to see a female writer resorting to such clichéd portrayals of women. What a disappointment.
  • I absolutely adore all of the Hollows books, and 'The Turn: The Hollows Begins with Death' is no exception. However, I must admit that the main character can be a bit overwhelming at times. My major concern, though, is the stark contrast in terms of story and history compared to the previous books. Perhaps it can be attributed to the 40-year time gap and the fact that the tale of the turn, as depicted in the original books, was written by the victors. It's possible that another book will be released to bridge the gap between the prequel and the rest of the series, which would definitely alleviate my concerns.
  • The narrator for "The Turn: The Hollows Begins with Death" is the same as the original Hollows series. However, for some unknown reason, the storytelling wasn't as captivating. Personally, I didn't find the characters to be as charming, humorous, or rebellious. I noticed that our main character, Tristan, was making choices that I couldn't connect with, and as for Kal... well, let's just say he hasn't yet become the type of person I admire.
  • I absolutely adored this audiobook! It transported me back to the origins of the Hollows, delving into the captivating tale of Trent's parents and the fascinating creation of the Angel tomato. While Gally is the sole character from this story who appears in other Hollows books, it still maintains the essence of the series. The narration, as always, was superb, skillfully capturing the essence of each character, providing distinct voices and personalities that truly brought the story to vivid life. This narrative held a number of unexpected twists, further enriching an already remarkable world.
  • I couldn't get into this book by Harrison, which is a first for me. It just didn't captivate me, and to be honest, I found it quite dull. Despite my lack of interest, I can't bring myself to return it just yet. Maybe I'll give it another shot in the future.
  • Potential spoiler alert! The whole book revolves around battling an individual, only for him to betray her once he finds out she's pregnant! I was furious about that.... it honestly seemed like she fluctuated between being strong and resolute to being feeble-minded and scatterbrained.
  • I really enjoyed this prequel. It's a great way to satisfy the cravings of those who are still missing the hollows. It's also a good choice for anyone who wants to dive into the hollow series for the first time. Although it may reveal a few spoilers, it's still an enjoyable read. The narrator is fantastic and one of my personal favorites. She has a knack for changing her tone and giving each character a unique presence. The story may be a bit slow, especially if you haven't read or finished the hollows series in a while. It can be challenging to remember all the details from each book that tie into this prequel. However, there are some helpful websites out there that can help refresh your memory and provide guidance on which books to revisit for certain parts. So, if you're looking to jog your memory, I would recommend giving those a look.
