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

The second volume in Stephen King’s #1 bestselling Dark Tower Series, The Drawing of the Three is an “epic in the making” (Kirkus Reviews) about a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies.

“Stephen King is a master at creating living, breathing, believable characters,” hails The Baltimore Sun. Beginning just less than seven hours after The Gunslinger ends, in the second installment to the thrilling Dark Tower Series, Roland encounters three mysterious doorways on a deserted beach along the Western Sea. Each one enters into a different person’s life in New York—here, he joins forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean, and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes, to save the Dark Tower.

“This quest is one of King’s best…it communicates on a genuine, human level…but is rich in symbolism and allegory” (Columbus Sunday Dispatch). It is a science fiction odyssey that is unlike any tale that Stephen King has ever written.
