In this second volume, Roland encounters three mysterious doorways on a deserted beach along the Western Sea. Each one enters into a different person's life in New York - here, he joins forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. They also become the companions, forming a ka-tet, who will assist him on his quest to save the Dark Tower.

Frank Muller's performance of this already intriguing book had me bent over my steering wheel more than once and loath to press pause when I reached my destination. The first time I listened to Frank Muller read King was for Dark House, which he co-wrote with Peter Straub. With that book so closely intertwined with the Dark Tower series, this felt like the way to go. I was not disappointed.

Imajica is an epic beyond compare: vast in conception, obsessively detailed in execution, and apocalyptic in its resolution. At its heart lies the sensualist and master art forger Gentle, whose life unravels when he encounters Judith Odell, whose power to influence the destinies of men is vaster than she knows, and Pie "oh" pah, an alien assassin who comes from a hidden dimension.

I read this book about 20 years ago and loved it. I was hoping it would hold up and it did. Clive Barker has always been one of my favorite writers and Imajica could possibly be his best work. It's description of the fantastic is so floral and vibrant. I really fell for the characters all over again and his deft ability to describe the differences between men and women is subtle and nuanced. There's fantasy, horror, love and adventure here mixed with magic and religion- I love this book and Simon Vance's narration was excellent.
