Book Looks – The Turn

Posted February 22, 2017 by Kathy in Book Looks / 2 Comments

Book Looks was created by Jen at Books and Other Happy Ever Afters, combining our love of books & fashion with book cover or scene inspired outfits.

Today is my final Valentine’s Day edition of Book Looks. All this month I featured books that reminded me of Valentine’s Day (roses, the colors red or pink, etc) but were not necessarily romance stories. This month flew by fast and I hope you enjoyed this special edition of Book Looks.

This week’s feature is:

The Turn: The Hollows Begins with Death by Kim Harrison



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.


Release Day February 7, 2017


The Turn is a prequel for Kim Harrison’s Hollows series. I haven’t read this series yet but it I just bought the first book as an audiobook and I plan to start this series soon. For this Book Looks I found this beautiful red chiffon gown that mimics the flow of the gown on the cover. I was so excited to find a DNA necklace like what the model is wearing. I kept this Book Looks simple because the gown and the necklace take center stage. This cover is mysterious so I can’t wait to start this series.
