Publisher's Summary

The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

To give birth to her "chap", demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah...and terrifying to the "daughter of none" who shares her body and mind.

Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining ka-tet climbs to the Doorway Cave...and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who in a struggle to cope, with each other and with an alien environment, "go todash" to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term.

Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot, a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you've ever heard. Here is Stephen King's most visionary piece of storytelling, a magical mix of fantasy and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. Don't miss the other volumes of Stephen King's The Dark Tower.

What the Critics Say

"There's something about a crippled, black, schizophrenic, civil rights activist-turned-gunslinger whose body has been hijacked by a white, pregnant demon from a parallel world that keeps a seven-volume story bracingly strong as it veers toward its Armageddon-like conclusion....The biggest cliffhanger of King's career." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "It had its ups and downs."

    King introduces a dynamic to the story that seemed a little... Self-centered? It damaged the sense of wonder this story provided in the other books. Hopefully, the next one is better.

    "Great Book"

    I have loved this entire series. It just gets better and better. I have read the entire series and listened to it many times. This one is so cool, the things he has led to start to really show themselves here and an unexpected thing that just blew my mind, and I thought only Stephen King would do this. I loved it.

    I am so sad this series will come to an end. I don't think it strayed far from the intent of the original series at all. Life is not linear and I'm glad this series is not linear. Fabulous reading. Fabulous writing.

    I am a "constant reader" of Stephen King. Once I was hooked on reading now I can take it anywhere with audiobooks.

    Story
    "Had I of known!"

    Years ago I started The dark Tower series however somehow I missed this book and went to right to reading the Gunslinger it never made any sense to me and it made me almost hate the series.

    This book has now made me think that its my new favorite Stephen King, It had been 11-22-63.

    DO NOT READ THE FOLLOWING IF YOU DONT WANT ANY KIND OF SPOILERS!
    This book ties everything together to so many of Stephen Kings other works.

    To put himself in this book is just brilliant! again I believe it's my new favorite Stephen King book.
