The city is strange to Susannah...and terrifying to the "daughter of none" who shares her body and mind. Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation.

In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term. Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot, a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him.

Summary

A #1 New York Times bestseller

Now a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba

The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

To give birth to her "chap," demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah...and terrifying to the "daughter of none" who shares her body and mind.

Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining ka-tet climbs to the Doorway Cave...and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who in a struggle to cope -- with each other and with an alien environment -- "go todash" to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term.

Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot, a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pure storytelling.” Washington Post
“There’s something about [this series]…that keeps a seven-volume story bracingly strong as it veers toward its Armageddon-like conclusion.” Publishers Weekly
“The climax to the tale with which King has tantalized readers for nearly a quarter of a century approaches. Close on the heels of Wolves of the Calla, this penultimate volume winds its way nimbly through the time-space continuum…In the end, King has his readers where he wants them: breathlessly waiting for more.” Library Journal

Awesome!

The Dark Tower series is an amazing work and deserves much hoopla! Song of Susannah is an excellent part which like the others reveal more to the twisting turning story. The only downfall to the series is that it is a series. To truly enjoy the Song, you must first visit the earlier stories. And you will enjoy them all. Guaranteed.
