Wizard and Glass (The Dark Tower #4) - Stephen King, Dave McKean 7.98   138

Locus Award nominee 1998.

The dark tower beckons Roland, the gunslinger...

And in a terrifying journey Roland determines to reach his destiny with the companions he has gathered along the road; wheelchair-bound Susannah Holmes, narcotic prisoner Eddie Dean, a boy named Jake and his pet creature Oy, are all willing participants in the harrowing quest.

Through the scarred, devastated urban wasteland to the Mid-World where cavernous black holes threaten the structure of the tower, time grows thin and the past becomes a riddle. On and on, the malevolent monorail hurtles, threatening destruction as the pilgrims desperately bargain for survival.

Hidden dangers lie at every junction of their destined path: from the terror of Roland's relentless, cunning enemy to the temptation of the wizard's glass, a powerful force in Roland's first love affair.

Still the tower awaits.

The master of horror and suspense draws on his unique genius to create the powerful world of the Dark Tower. Wizard and Glass is a compelling, poignant and terrifying tale which is both a stand-alone novel and the eagerly anticipated fourth volume in the besting 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.
