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)

    Story
    "Very, very, good. "

    I've read some of the negative reviews for this one, and I don't understand them. If one liked the first five, this one is as good or better than any of them. In book V, I did not care for Guidall's narration. I was used to Muller's version of the characters. I'm not sure what happened, but Guidall does a much better job in this one. He's not Muller, but he's fantastic in his own way. The Dark Tower (book VII) comes next for me, and I'm ready to see how it all unfolds. This is usually not my genre, and this series is the only Steven King I've read. This series is long and impressive and comes highly recommended from me. The first book in the series seemed to be the least interesting for me, as the narrative continues to build with each and every book, so I'm fine with that. "Song of Susanna" is the only book in the series that has received a five star rating from me. In this one, the story, the narrator, and the production quality all come together nicely.

    Nice job, Mr. King.

    "Just ok"

    I did not care for this book as much as the others in the series. Still worth the price to keep the series complete.

    "George Guidall grows on you!"

    After listening to books 2-4 I thought i wasn't going to ever get use to George's version of the character's. He is different from Frank Muller but I love his version of Roland. The story is great and I'm on pins and needles for the next one. Too bad it's was so short but a great read nonetheless.

    "Two more to go, ya say true"

    I don't know how Stephen King's brain works but this is such a trippy tale. Love it. And the "new" character and coda make it a wild ride into deeper realms of not just this story but the entire King-verse. Fantastic narration too. George Guidall does not disappoint.

    "Amazing Story read well"

    as always an absolutely amazing story told by King the fact that he tied so many different genres and storylines from other authors into this as well as his own is incredible.
