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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Drifting Along, But I'm Still Interested

Story drifts along as it always does in this series- I guess I should be past hoping for a clear narrative structure. Characters are still great, and I absolutely love the weird meta stuff it gets into. Excited to read the last one. At least that will have a clear ending (I hope)

Gives the series a different life than when I read it!

This is my third trip through the DT series, first time on Audiobook. George Guidall is doing a good job of carrying the torch that Frank Muller (RIP) had knocked from his hand. Listening to the series brings the characters to life! Whether you've read it or not, it's worth the listen

Good continuation, egotistical shoehorn

Love this series, but I was almost forced to give up the story. King made a ridiculous move by showing himself in the story, nearly killed my voracious appetite cor the series.

A Series No King Fan Should Ignore

There are so many things good about this series it becomes hard to try and write a review about a single angle of it. I am a Stephen King fan and enjoy most of his tales, but this is his epic series. The one that has spanned decades and encompassed nearly all of his works in some aspect or another. Like the story itself, the Dark Tower is the hub of the wheel that goes around and out. To any SK fan, this is a series you must read.
