Inhoud

Roland Deschain, gunslinger, hero, continues his perilous adventures in search of the key to the quest that will define his life. Roland's loyal followers, Jake, Father Callahan and Oy set out to break Susannah's date with destiny. She has used the power of Black Thirteen to transport her from the farming community of Calla Bryn Sturgis to New York, where she prepares to give birth to an unknown entity.

Meanwhile, Roland and Eddie brave the state of Naine in the summer of 1977. It is a frightful world, a real world, where bullets are flying. A world inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot...

Driven by revelation and suspense, Song of Susannah continues the Dark Tower saga from Wolves of Calla; its dual climaxes will leave readers gasping to read the next volume - the electrifying conclusion, The Dark Tower.

The penultimate volume in Stephen King's seven-volume magnus opus, Song of Susannah is a pivotal instalment in the most anticipated series of publications in Stephen King's legendary career.

Bespreking

The most exciting volume yet...

After fighting the Wolves of the Calla, Roland Deschain and his ka-tet can focus again on finding the Dark Tower. But there is grave danger ahead. The tremendously important union of the ka-tet is about to break. Now that Susannah Dean is trapped in her own mind by Mia, a former demon, it becomes even more important to keep the alliance together. But the power of Black Thirteen has taken hold of Susannah and before Roland can stop her she is transported via the Doorway Cave to the New York of 1999. Lost in a city she only knows from years ago, Susannah fears that she has to give birth to her child on her own, without the support of her friends. Moreover she feels that she is about to lose control over Mia. When that happens the future of the ka-tet will be threatened. In the meanwhile Roland needs to find the author of the book titled Salem�s Lot because he feels that this is the only way to defeat the Crimson King and to bring the ka-tet together again.

If you could appreciate the previous five books of the Dark Tower, Song of Susannah is going to blow your mind. Not only does King prepare the finale that is going to happen in the final book The Dark Tower, but he also weaves a web of intrigues that goes far beyond the previous books. After reading Song of Susannah you get the feeling that you are at the front door of the Dark Tower, with the promise that what�s behind the door is going to be amazing. The introduction of Father Callagan in the previous book, and the amazing lint to Stephen King�s �Salems Lot, becomes even more exciting in this volume. I will not ruin the story for you, but know that when Roland gets closer to the true nature of the Crimson King, the hair on the back of your neck will stand up, no doubt. As with the Drawing of the Three, travelling through the different worlds becomes again a major story point, something that I truly missed in Wizard and Glass. The only negative thing I can say about this book is that is announces the closure of one of the best stories ever told. What will we do without when the secret of the Dark Tower is revealed?
