Description
Now a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba The second volume in Stephen King's #1 bestselling Dark Tower Series, The Drawing of the Three is an "epic in the making" ( Kirkus Reviews ) about a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. "Stephen King is a master at creating living, breathing, believable characters," hails The Baltimore Sun . Beginning just less than seven hours after The Gunslinger ends, in the second installment to the thrilling Dark Tower Series, Roland encounters three mysterious doorways on a deserted beach along the Western Sea. Each one enters into a different person's life in New York--here, he joins forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean, and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes, to save the Dark Tower. "This quest is one of King's best...it communicates on a genuine, human level...but is rich in symbolism and allegory" ( Columbus Sunday Dispatch ). It is a science fiction odyssey that is unlike any tale that Stephen King has ever written.

Description
"Taking place mere hours following the dramatic events seen in The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three continues with Roland of Gilead on his solitary quest for the Dark Tower, leading him to a seemingly endless stretch of beach along the Western Sea--a terrain filled with unearthly monstrosities that mean certain death if he lets his guard down. But there are other mysteries along this desolate shoreline as well: three arcane doorways standing freely in the sand and cryptically designated as The Prisoner, The Lady of Shadows, and The Pusher. Each one is a portal to our world's New York City at different points in time, and each one is complete with its own set of dangers that could spell the end of Roland's journey. The world has moved on, and the Tower draws even closer..."--Back cover.
