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)

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great depth and density.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He makes this audiobook. The only comparable reader I've heard on an audiobook was the gent who did the last couple Harry Potter Books on tape.

    "A Half-story, But Still Good"

    Unluck the last book, there is no episodic sense of a complete story arc. However, the overall series story continues at a steady pace, with a hell of a cliffhanger.

    Story
    "Excellent! I'm on the journey to the clearing at the end of the path."

    Another amazing adventure. This one is more of a crossroads book. A direct continuation from "Wolves of the Calla". A lot of the Dark Tower books leave you in a cliff hanger and this is no exception. The beauty is that because we're reading these books now, we can move directly onto the next one and not wait for years like tons of people did during the times of publication.

    George Guidall is amazing and after his return on "Wolves of the Calla" I've totally gotten use to his voice differences from Frank Muller.

    Now onto the last of the Dark Tower series, Book 7 "The Dark Tower".

    "Excellent"

    This book was excellent! Major cliff hangers through the the book that kept me turning the page, I can't wait to start the next one. All my friends say I'll hate the last book. I'm getting a bit nervous as the end grows closer.

    "Would recomend"

    I flew through this novel like I was on a mission.
    I found in the other dark tower novels that the beginning would be very slow and then pick up rapidly. But not this one. Mr. King takes you on a non-stop drama that could only mean the beginning of the end.
    George guidell did a wonderful job on this novel as he did in the last. Of course big ups to Frank muller who knocked the first 4 books out of the park

    "More pieces revealed"

    The dark tower looms ever closer as more information is revealed about our Gunslingers. A smooth read with lots of details and character development.
