    In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero.

    Overall

    I've listened to six of the seven part Dark Tower series, as well as pseudo-parallel novels The Black House and The Talisman.

    Out of all of these, Wizard and Glass is the best written, most compelling in the series. Part classic Western, part traditional good versus evil borrowing from the themes of Star Wars and The Seven Samurai, this novel looks at the first mission that Roland and his two teenage cohorts undertake as freshly annointed gunslingers --- heroic saviors, lawmen, and messengers of good --- in a world slowly corrupted by a seemingly unstoppable evil.

    Along the way, Rolan falls in love with a beautiful young woman that has been promised to be the mistress of a powerful town official, discovers a plot that could spell disaster for the forces of good, and meets up with a powerful and dark evil for which many are willing to kill, or worse.

    Action, suspense, magic, powerful evil, treachery, human fraility and flaws, dedication, honor, friendship, and star-crossed love all collide to make a tale that will end long before the reader or listener wills it to do so. Truly Stephen King at his storytelling best.
