Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Now a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba <br> <br> 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.<br> <br> "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.<br> <br> "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.
After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea -- each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower. In 1987, he finds Eddie Dean, The Prisoner, a heroin addict. In 1964, he meets Odetta Holmes, the Lady of Shadows, a young African-American heiress who lost her lower legs in a subway accident and gained a second personality that rages within her. And in 1977, he encounters Jack mort, Death, a pusher responsible for cruelties beyond imagining. Has Roland found new companions to form the ka-tet of his quest? Or has he unleashed something else entirely?
