I've finished "The Turn" a prequel book in her Hollows series by Kim Harrison.
#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.

I couldn't really get into this book because I didn't really care for most of the characters!
Trisk was a really piece of work since all she cared about was one upping Kal and making sure her name was the one associated with the virus (I know a few people like this and take offense)!
Trent (the son) is quite arrogant but his father Kal is 100% more arrogant then him but at least I could stomach him!
I liked seeing Quen, Al, Daniel and Orchid!
