It provides the key to the quest that defines Roland's life. In the next part of their journey to the tower, Roland and his band of followers face adversity from every side: Susannah Dean has been taken over by a demon-mother and uses the power of Black Thirteen to get from the Mid-World New York City. But who is the is the father of her child? And what role will the Crimson King play? Roland sends Jake to break Susannah's date with destiny, while he himself uses 'the persistence of magic' to get to Maine in the Summer of 1977. It is a terrible world: for one thing it is real and bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called 'Salem's Lot. Song Of Susannah is driven by revelation and by suspense. It continues the Dark Tower seamlessly from Wolves Of The Calla and the dramatic climax will leave readers desperate to read the quest's conclusion.Read Less
I am a big fan of Stephen King but the Dark Tower series was wonderful. All seven books were hard to put down once I started reading. Very glad that I read them in order as past and present blended throughout. I went on to read some of King's other books that had references to the Tower series such as Buick 8, The Stand, Hearts in Atlantis, and Insomnia. All great reads!

Out of all of the books I have read in this series so far, this one has been the best. It is a page turner from the very beginning. I was glad that I had already purchased the next book because the ending leaves you with more questions. I have never read a series of books that could both make me laugh and cry but Stephen King is at his best with the Dark Tower series.
