Publisher's Summary

Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers, the boy who has come twice through the doorway of death into Roland's world; and Oy, the Billy Bumbler.

In this long-awaited fifth novel in the saga, their path takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a tranquil valley community of farmers and ranchers on Mid-World's borderlands. Beyond the town, the rocky ground rises toward the hulking darkness of Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is slowly stealing the community's soul. One of the town's residents is Pere Callahan, a ruined priest who, like Susannah, Eddie and Jake, passed through one of the portals that lead both into and out of Roland's world.

As Father Callahan tells the ka-tet the astonishing story of what happened following his shamed departure from Maine in 1977, his connection to the Dark Tower becomes clear, as does the danger facing a single red rose in a vacant lot off Second Avenue in midtown Manhattan. For Calla Bryn Sturgis, danger gathers in the east like a storm cloud. The Wolves of Thunderclap and their unspeakable depredation are coming. To resist them is to risk all, but these are odds the gunslingers are used to, and they can give the Calla folken both courage and cunning. Their guns, however, will not be enough.

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.

    "Still Great, but a tiny step down."

    I highly recommend this book. While it's not as good as Wizard & Glass it is still very exciting and fun.

    "Love this series!"

    I found this series when I use to drive big rigs cross country. I was so magical the first time hearing these books while driving cross country mostly at night on a quite open road. I still listen to the whole series several times a year for the last 13-14 years and still love it, even though I am no longer a driver.

    Yes Frank is the best and I did notice the change the first time heard this book but I think George is great and has become one of my fav narrators.

    "Marble mouthed narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Wolves of the Calla the most enjoyable?

    The Story


    What didn’t you like about George Guidall’s performance?

    If you are particular about narrators like I must be, listen to the sample first. I almost don’t want to finish the series I dislike the voice so much. He always sounds like he has a wad of spit in his mouth. Its just like nails on a chalk board to me and I know its irrational but I’m very uphappy.

    "This series just keeps getting better!"

    As Steven King himself has continued to broaden, deepen and mature as a person and as a writer, so too have the members of this "ka-tet." For me, they have become members of my extended family, with whom I may not "palaver" for years, but find that when our paths do cross -- or our worlds intersect or overlap -- it's not as though no time has passed, for surely it has moved on (forward, back or through parallel worlds and at different speeds) -- no, but it's as though we've all grown and changed in ways that allow us to appreciate and understand each other more thoroughly and more generously than we may have thought possible earlier in our journeys. This "reunion" was especially satisfying, and I very much look forward to the next, certainly with significant "fear and trembling," but also with more than a little hope.

    "Awesome piece of the series."

    Another great segment of the Dark Tower series. The tying in of Salem's Lot seems a little hokey, though.

    A fun read, overall.

    Story
    "A neccesary but sometimes dragging journey..."

    This was a great listen. Not as intriguing as Wizard and Glass, but some good reveals about the world about the Dark Tower. Some great new characters and arcs here. My only real criticism is that the ending felt somewhat rushed. There was a very long build, and some intrigue about the nature of the wolves, and I was a bit let down. The reveal didn't seem much of a twist, as it seemed more like, "hm, that's pretty interesting." This story did add value to the universe, but was not nearly as riveting as Wastelands or Wizard. Still, a neccesary read for fans.
