Description

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba

Wolves of the Calla is the highly anticipated fifth book in Stephen King’s Dark Tower series—a unique bestselling epic fantasy quest inspired many years ago by The Lord of the Rings.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, the Dark Tower series is unlike anything you have ever read. Here is the fifth installment.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 04, 2003 – "Time is a face on the water," stretching and contorting reality as gunslingers Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake and their talking pet "billy-bumbler" Oy continue their quest to prevent the destruction of the Dark Tower and, consequently, save all worlds from Chaos and the Crimson King's evil, red-eyed glare. Roland—the primary hero of King's epic tale, the first volume of which appeared in 1982—and company momentarily fall off the "Path of The Beam" to help the residents of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a farm town. But as Dark Tower fans know, everything follows The Beam, so what looks like a detour may really serve the will of "ka" (destiny). Roland and his posse learn that every 20-odd years the "Wolves" kidnap one child from each set of the Calla's twins, bring them to the Tower and, weeks later, send them back mentally and physically impaired.Meanwhile, back in 1977 New York City (the alternate world of Roland's surrogate son, Jake), bookstore owner Calvin Tower is being threatened by a group of thugs (readers will recognize them from The Drawing of the Three, 1987) to sell them a vacant lot in midtown Manhattan. In the lot stands a rose, or rather the Rose, which is our world's manifestation of the Dark Tower. With the help of the Old Fella (also known to Salem's Lot readers as Father Callahan), the gunslingers must devise a plan against evil in both worlds. The task, however, is further complicated as Roland and his gang start noticing behavioral changes in wheelchair-bound, recovered schizophrenic Susannah.As the players near the Tower, readers will keep finding exciting ties between the Dark Tower universe and King's other books, with links to Black House, Insomnia, The Eyes of the Dragon, The Stand, 'Salem's Lot and Hearts in Atlantis. The high suspense and extensive character development here (especially concerning Jake's coming-of-age), plus the enormity of King's ever-expanding universe, will surely keep his "Constant Readers" in awe.

Customer Reviews

The series could have ended with Wizard, but.....

Wolves is a very good book. I love the new characters and how they are developed. I must say I didn't spend 20 years on this series. I read them straight through.

I've read the whole series twice now, so I know what happens. This is the best book of the last 3 in the series.

The dark tower is a mystical, magical series. There is no shame in leaving some of it to your mind's eye.

Awesome

Series is amazing but I'm very ticked off that I'm missing over 100 pages right before chapter 9 when Overholser is first speaking when they arrive at Calla and I have no idea what I'm missing. I don't know whether to be angry at the app itself or whoever put the book in the app.

Dark Tower Series

I have read all the books but I haven't completed the last one DTV. I really enjoyed the stories and have told many about them and recommend them numerous other readers. now that I own an IPad I may even read them all again!
