Read Song of Susannah

Book 6 of the Dark Tower epic down!  Song of Susannah is a bit shorter than some of the others, but so many important events happen and get set up for the climatic finish.  I hate doing reviews because I don't want to spoil secrets but I want to get others to read the books so I never know how much to tell.  I guess I'd be safe in saying that Susannah's trial with her personalities take up much of the book and get sorted out as well as some business with the rose and the vacant lot.  There is a lot of time traveling, alternate worlds and meddling in fate, so if you have a hard time wrapping your head around stuff like that (think Matrix) you may not like this series.


But wow oh wow, this is my favorite series of books ever!


On to the last one where the Tower is won or lost!!

Read The Wolves of the Calla

Continuing on my journey for the Dark Tower I read the fifth book in the series, The Wolves of the Calla.  This is one of my favorites, more of an isolated adventure that takes place in a sleepy little border town where strange raiders abduct children every generation.  Roland's group of adventurers are called in to aid the town but there is much here for the band of Eld to see, hear, and discover.  They will have changed much by the time the wolves have left!


I love this series and will speed through the next one, The Song of Susannah, I'm sure.  This is one of the few series I can read over and over again.
