Publisher's Summary

Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers, the boy who has come twice through the doorway of death into Roland's world; and Oy, the Billy Bumbler.

In this long-awaited fifth novel in the saga, their path takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a tranquil valley community of farmers and ranchers on Mid-World's borderlands. Beyond the town, the rocky ground rises toward the hulking darkness of Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is slowly stealing the community's soul. One of the town's residents is Pere Callahan, a ruined priest who, like Susannah, Eddie and Jake, passed through one of the portals that lead both into and out of Roland's world.

As Father Callahan tells the ka-tet the astonishing story of what happened following his shamed departure from Maine in 1977, his connection to the Dark Tower becomes clear, as does the danger facing a single red rose in a vacant lot off Second Avenue in midtown Manhattan. For Calla Bryn Sturgis, danger gathers in the east like a storm cloud. The Wolves of Thunderclap and their unspeakable depredation are coming. To resist them is to risk all, but these are odds the gunslingers are used to, and they can give the Calla folken both courage and cunning. Their guns, however, will not be enough.

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.

    "Best of the Dark Tower"

    One of the best books in the series! Possibly the best. George Guidall is probably the only narrator who could follow Frank... A must listen!

    "The Best Yet"

    Contrary to most reviews I've seen online, I actually prefer Guidall's performance to that of Muller. While I feel both narrators do a great job, Muller's NY accent for Eddie makes him sound like a brainless mobster from some "B" movie. I actually read the wolves of the calla years ago, and it was my favorite Dark Tower book at the time, and with this masterful performance, it remains that today. Don't be off put by reviews you see trashing Guidall, he knocks it out of the park.

    "good story"
    What made the experience of listening to Wolves of the Calla the most enjoyable?

    really enjoyed the story, some people thing S.K. drones on a lot, but i listen to this at work and can go through 3/4 of my shift before i have to change to some music.


    What did you like best about this story?

    george guidall is good, but he is no Frank Muller. the voices he does for the characters are all the same, its hard sometimes to keep track of who is saying what.

    "Voice actor ruins it."

    If you listened to the previous book the voice actor for wolves of the calla ruins the characters. I couldn't get past the first chapter had to return it.

    "Another Dark Tower Down"

    Finished the 5th book. Forgot that this was the one he starts breaking the 4th wall. Now I can't decide if I want to take a break or go right into the next one.
