The Dark Tower

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.

Together this Ka-tet must survive a crazy world that is passing on, each surpass their own fears and limitations, and find the Dark Tower even as time races against them.
