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)

    "Underrated entry in the Dark Tower series"

    I am writing this review from the perspective of a first time reader who started the books about 6 months ago. I never had to wait the years and years to find out what happens with Blaine the Pain or anything like that. That being said, given the fact that the next book is just waiting for me, I loved this book in the series. I thought King executed this wonderfully.

    Love the Dark Tower Series. Somewhere down the road I'm going to re-listen so I can be back with the four of them. Stephen King at his best.

    "Well written addition to the Dark Tower series"

    Mia is the character you love to hate. Felt like it dragged in some parts, but all of Mia's backstory was relevant. Pleasantly surprised to get the "why" in the prophesy as well.

    It was incredible to see Stephen King making an appearance in this story. He was insinuated into the story in a way that was believable and entertaining, not cheesy. His creativity knows no bounds.

    I gotta say, I can't wait to see how Stephen King will remedy that ending!!

    Love the Dark Tower series!!
