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.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not a clue

Has The Drawing of the Three turned you off from other books in this genre?

Book 1 was bad and I was glad to finish it. Book 2 was so bad I could not complete it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Ok , but he didn't have much to work with

What character would you cut from The Drawing of the Three?

All of them

Any additional comments?

I thought this would be a good series after all this was written by Stephen King. Was I ever wrong. I will stick to William Johnstone from now on.

The Mountain Man series established William W. Johnstone as one of the most heralded writers ever to pen tales of the Old West. Following in the footsteps of his adoptive father Smoke, Matt Jensen has big boots to fill. Matt's never been one to shy away from a confrontation, and he's got a fire burning in his belly that's leading him straight toward a deadly showdown in the town of Braggadocio.

Nobody double-crosses Smoke Jensen - not if he hopes to live, that is. USA Today best-selling author William W. Johnstone's Betrayal of the Mountain Man finds the rough and tumble hero fighting through one of his deadliest plights yet. Framed for robbery and murder by a pack of low-life outlaws, Smoke is locked up and sentenced to the gallows. But no bars of iron or bonds of rope can withstand a vengeful Mountain Man.
