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.

    "Great novel with an average reading"

    I like George Guidall. I really enjoyed his reading glasses of "The Gunslinger." He has a great voice and cadence. He just doesn't differentiate his voice enough for different characters. Everyone sounds very similar to each other with occasional dips into accents. He's not very engaging in this book.

    Still, it's a worthwhile purchase because the book is so good.

    "Great book, I just miss Frank Muller"

    Amazing story, as usual, and a good narrator. It just takes a little getting used to after reading the previous ones with Frank Muller narrating.

    Story
    "Excellent!!! Back to this amazing tale!"

    I've loved all of the books in this serious so far and this is no exception.

    George Guidall the original reader from Book 1 "The Gunslinger" is back and he is an absolute pro.

    I was sorry to see Frank Muller who read books 2, 3 & 4 not reappear. But in the authors note I was more sorry to find out why. A head injury has taken him out of the story telling business. This is a tremendous loss and I've listened to him read enough to know that this man is a treasure. From all of the Stephen King fans, I wish him and his family "Long Nights And Pleasant Days".

    Story
    "This story will take you Todash!"

    First, I would like to applaud George Guidall for doing a wonderful job narrating this and the remaining books of The Dark Tower series. Imagine trying to step into a series such as this originally narrated by the likes of Frank Mueller!

    We listeners were blessed to have Frank Mueller develop the characters voices and personalities the way that he did. I feel as if George Guidall has done the same thing, your loss if you don't listen to the remaining books narrated by him 😐

    Stephen Kings mind is amazing, I wonder sometimes how he sleeps at night; there must be so words constantly running through his brain.

    This book is so fantastically bizarre, it has more than one flavor (do ya kennet, cully?) everything on the plate is touching 😊

    Story
    "he wrote himself into his own novel."

    The Dark Tower is one of the most original pieces of fiction to come out of my generation my lifetime. however evidently while celebrating his creative genius mr. King could not help but write himself into his own story as a plot device. I object.

    "This story had me on the edge of my seat"

    I enjoyed roots book as I've enjoyed all the others. The escapism is just what I was looking for.
