Treading uncharted territory in the Dark Tower mythos, The Long
Road Home finds Roland’s ka-tet intact but unraveling. In the
shadow of the shocking murder of Susan Delgado — the young woman
who had won Roland’s heart and carried his child — the trio of
young gunslingers track a road out of Hambry fraught with peril.
While Alain and Cuthbert try to keep ahead of the pursuing Big
Coffin Hunters and cut through the formidable menaces that stand
in their way, Roland lies in a coma, his consciousness trapped
in Maerlyn’s Grapefruit, a mystical sphere inside of which many
important secrets are locked; its revelations may bring death —
And while Roland’s ka-tet is absorbed in its own drama, a great evil is emerging in the Dogan, as the boy Sheemie accidentally stirs a long-slumbering spirit that portends great evil.
