A major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba Wolves of the Calla is the thrilling fifth book in Stephen King’s Dark Tower series—a unique bestselling epic fantasy quest inspired many years ago by The Lord of the Rings. In the extraordinary fifth novel in Stephen King’s remarkable fantasy epic, Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World. Their path takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a tranquil valley community of farmers and ranchers on Mid-World’s borderlands. Beyond the town, the rocky ground rises toward the hulking darkness of Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is slowly stealing the community’s soul. The Wolves of Thunderclap and their unspeakable depredation are coming. To resist them is to risk all, but these are odds the gunslingers are used to, and they can give the Calla-folken both courage and cunning. Their guns, however, will not be enough.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Kansas City Star It works because King, despite his long resume, keeps insisting on surprising himself and, in so doing, surprising us.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution An impressive work of mythic magnitude. May turn out to be Stephen King's greatest literary achievement.
The Denver Post Brilliant in technique and ability...Feed your head! Now dig in, 'cause King's latest in this seven-course banquet...is a lip-smacking, brain-filling repast.
Bangor Daily News "The Dark Tower" is King's masterpiece....Wolves of the Calla succeeds as a standalone work.
Publishers Weekly The high suspense and extensive character development here...plus the enormity of King's ever-expanding universe, will surely keep his "Constant Readers" in awe.
People The master of the macabre....[King] is still quite the entertainer
The Philadelphia Inquirer The man can spin a yarn, and a great one at that.
The New York Times Book Review [A] hypnotic blend of suspense and sentimentality...sprawling, eventful tale of demons, monsters, narrow escapes and magic portals.
Wolves of the Calla is one of the strongest entries yet in what will surely be a master storyteller’s magnum opus.” Locus
LOCUS Wolves of the Calla is one of the strongest entries yet in what will surely be a master storyteller's magnum opus.
The San Francisco Chronicle One gets the feeling that this colossal story means a lot to King, that he's telling it because he has to....he's giving "The Dark Tower" everything he's got.
“The high suspense and extensive character development here (especially concerning Jake's coming-of-age), plus the enormity of King’s ever-expanding universe, will surely keep his ‘Constant Readers’ in awe.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Fans will delight not only in King’s continued gleeful intertwining of multiple genres but perhaps most of all in the return of ’Salem’s Lot’s Father Callahan…an essential addition to any library’s King collection.” Library Journal
