In 1978, Stephen King introduced the world to the last gunslinger, Roland of Gilead.  Nothing has been the same since. More than twenty years later, the quest for the Dark Tower continues to take readers on a wildly epic ride. Through parallel worlds and across time, Roland must brave desolate wastelands and endless deserts, drifting into the unimaginable and the familiar. A classic tale of colossal scope—crossing over terrain from The Stand, The Eyes of the Dragon, Insomnia, The Talisman, Black House, Hearts in Atlantis, ’Salem’s Lot, and other familiar King haunts—the adventure takes hold with the turn of each page.

And the tower awaits....

The Second Volume in the Epic Dark Tower Series…

The Drawing of the Three

While pursuing his quest for the Dark Tower through a world that is a nightmarishly distorted mirror image of our own, Roland is drawn through a mysterious door that brings him into contemporary America.

Here he links forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean, and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes, in a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies.

Once again, Stephen King has masterfully interwoven dark, evocative fantasy and icy realism.

Keeps you hanging on. Second time reading this and twice as good as the first. I have spent the last 10 years searching for a book(s) as good as this series. Will always be number 1

Amazing story weaving
January 6th, 2014
Like magic, this book and the characters within come alive and play inside your head between readings. King is a master of his craft, and proves he is capable of writing an epic as opposed to his normal romps in horror. I will be starting the third in this masterpiece immediately! This is a must read!

This second book was not the same as the first but still just as good. If it were the same ole thing over and over the dark tower series would not be as good. Overall I really liked it and there were many times I found myself unable to stop reading

This is an excellent continuation of the Gunslinger Story line. We start seeing more into the world of Roland. I would recommend this for any Stephen King fan.

I really enjoyed the prequel of this novel. So the author's pleads to overlook it and his promises for a better and completed experience in the sequels made me so hyped for this one. The novel starts right from where its prequel left of but then things go wrong... REALLY WRONG that's when you see roland "the gunslinger" (who was able to exterminate the people of Tull just like flies) is getting owned by lobsters! Yeah I'm pretty sure they were lobsters because I read about them a lot in this novel. After his struggle with lobsters he end up losing couple of fingers from his right hand, some toes and a couple of injuries but the good thing here (as the author mentioned) is that the gunslinger already masturbate with his left hand, so no loss here! Then he meet a junkie who gets a lot of flashbacks about his junkie brother and it feels that these flashbacks are there just for page count but once his main part of the novel is over they'll be scarce. Then he meet a schizophrenic woman. Where one side of her is the good and pretty while the other is the bad and ugly ( you really can't make this up! ) . Then he meet the last of three and this is where my reading speed have picked up to its usual speed after it was too slow because of mind numbing experience but don't expect that it was that good because even at this novel's best i kept sliding my palm on my face a couple of times out of disappointment . Will i be reading the next in the series? After this? Hell no!
