The Drawing of the Three

by Stephen King
The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower #2) - Stephen King 8.08   181

Once again, Stephen King masterfully interweaves dark, evocative fantasy and icy realism, as his hero, Roland, the Last Gunslinger, pursues his quest for the Dark Tower. Roaming another world that is a nightmarishly distorted mirror image of our own, he is drawn through a mysterious door that brings him into 1980s America. Here he links forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean and with beautiful, brilliant and brave Odetta Holmes, in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies.

With a storytelling skill that is sheer magic, and with breathtaking boldness of imagination, Stephen King has risen to the peak of his power to create a compelling epic that is at once enigmatic and familiar... and always compulsively readable.

The Dark Tower :: Series

Series contains 7 primary works and has 8 total works.

The Dark Tower tells the story of Roland Deschain, a lone gunslinger on the search for the elusive Dark Tower. Why he's looking for the Tower, no one knows. What he expects to find there, even he doesn't know. All he knows is that he must get there, at any cost.

Along the way Roland meets up with many characters, and encounters many strange places. Roland's world is moving on, and he with it, a remnant of the past. Drawn to the brink of death, he draws three people from a very familiar world to aid him in his quest: Eddie Dean, a former New York junkie; Jake Chambers, a boy who has inexplicable ties to Roland; and Detta Walker, a woman who could be their damnation, or their salvation.
