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.
"The high suspense and extensive character development here...plus the enormity of King's ever-expanding universe, will surely keep his 'Constant Readers' in awe." (Publishers Weekly)

I could not wait to start this fifth book, and I was not at all disappointed. The reader change was difficult to take at first, but I got used to him and enjoyed the story very much. At the end we learn why Mr. King was forced to change readers, it was very sad. I look forward to the last two books in this story with great antisipation.

Frank Muller will be missed.
The long awaited fifth book of the Dark Tower doesn't disapoint from a story standpoint. The story continues right where the fourth book ends without skipping a beat. As in previous books there is plenty of crossover to other King novels as Father Callaghan from Salem's Lot makes his return in this adventure.
Where the disapointment lies for those of us that have followed the adventures of the Dark Tower and other related novels like The Talisman and Black House on audio is the loss of Frank Muller. George Guidall is mediocre at best and compared to Muller he is terrible. He isn't able to create the division in the different characters or bring the out the emotion of the story the way Muller could. His versions of Eddie and Susannah seem generic and uninteresting compared to the life and energy Muller put into them. Sad they couldn't find someone better to finish such an important story.
