Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King – The Dark Tower #5 (EPUB)
Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World on their quest for The Dark Tower. Their path takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis. But beyond the tranquil farm town, the ground rises to the hulking darkness of Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is stealing the town’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. Their guns, however, will not be enough.
I love this book partly because it’s the one that got The Dark Tower story back on track and set up everything for the end run to the last book. I also love it just because this is Dark Tower at its best for me. It’s a mash-up of westerns, fantasy, horror and sci-fi.
Wolves of the Calla
Stephen King has such a creative mind, and I think this book completely made up for Wizard and Glass for me. Thanks King for delivering a solid book again. It was real trig. All in all, this is one of my favorite of the DT books, and it was King’s clear statement that he was done screwing around and ready to finish this mother. Too bad it took him nearly getting killed to get it done.
