Staff Reviews


Stephen King's Dark Tower series has been referred to as King's "magnum opus," and for good reason. None of his numerous novels will ever compare to the mastery of this series. We follow Roland, the last gunslinger in a universe parallel to our own, on an epic quest to the enigmatic Dark Tower, which is a sort of energetic magical center point connecting many universes--including our own--and keeping them alive. The Tower is in grave danger, and it seems only Roland can save it. This story spans multiple genres and muses on many lofty philosophical themes. It is a wonderful, golden tale.

Description


Now a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba

Creating "true narrative magic" (The Washington Post) at every revelatory turn, Stephen King surpasses all expectation in the stunning final volume of his seven-part epic masterwork. Entwining stories and worlds from a vast and complex canvas, here is the conclusion readers have long awaited—breathtakingly imaginative, boldly visionary, and wholly entertaining.

Roland Deschain and his ka-tet have journeyed together and apart, scattered far and wide across multilayered worlds of wheres and whens. The destinies of Roland, Susannah, Jake, Father Callahan, Oy, and Eddie are bound in the Dark Tower itself, which now pulls them ever closer to their own endings and beginnings...and into a maelstrom of emotion, violence, and discovery.
