內容簡介

《紐約時報》暢銷作家金.哈莉森《死亡女巫》系列前傳,機鋒處處又充滿想像力的奇幻小說。

當所有方法都失效時,科學可以拯救我們嗎?

特莉斯克與卡爾是精靈界的頂尖科學家,彼此不對盤,卻有著共同的目的:拯救精靈族,避免族人遭到毀滅的命運。

但是,死亡化身希望來到世界:當用來餵養全世界的基改番茄,被植入政府最新的戰略病毒後,瘟疫發生了。不當的科學行為遭到了指責,特莉斯克與卡爾飛越整個遭瘟疫蹂躪的美國,企圖說服精靈族的領導們拯救越來越衰弱的族人還有人類。但是,不是所有人都認為人類應該被拯救。特莉斯克必須要打破雙方社會的偏見,她不僅要證明人性有可取之處,被長期反對的女性、暗黑魔法都應該要被理解。當人類處於最糟糕的狀況時,恰巧是展現真正力量的最佳時機。並且,當新的平衡出現時,愛可以使整個世界凝聚在一起。

#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, featuring Harrison’s signature “spellbinding blend of sharp wit and vivid imagination” (Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author).

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 the human race.

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. Not everyone thinks humanity should be saved, though, and Trisk must fight the prejudices of two societies to prove not only that humanity does have something to offer but also that long-accepted beliefs against women, dark magic, and humanity itself can turn to understanding; that when people are at their worst, the best show their true strength; and that love can hold the world together as a new balance is found.
