From the Flap:

Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Readers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the DarkTower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers, the boy who has come twice through the doorway of death into Roland's world; and Oy, the Billy-Bumbler.

In this long-awaited fifth novel in the saga, their path takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a tranquil valley community of farmers and ranchers on Mid-World's borderlands. Beyond the town, the rocky ground rises toward the hulking darkness of Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is slowly stealing the community's soul. One of the town's residents is Pere Callahan, a ruined priest who, like Susannah, Eddie, and Jake, passed through one of the portals that lead both into and out of Roland's world.

As Father Callahan tells the ka-tet the astonishing story of what happened following his shamed departure from Maine in 1977, his connection to the Dark Tower becomes clear, as does the danger facing a single red rose in a vacant lot off Second Avenue in midtown Manhattan. For Calla Bryn Sturgis, danger gathers in the east like a storm cloud. 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, and they can give the Calla-folken both courage and cunning. Their guns, however, will not be enough.

Callahan's past is one of the best things in this book...and it couldn't be told in a better way. It's hard to tell for sure which of the seven books is my favourite...but I'll never forget this one. Keep doing what you do Stephen King. Bonne chance!

This series just gets better and better. I love how these books are set up so that it has a "continous flow" feel to it. It really is one story cut up into seven parts. The only drawback would be that if you dont read them in order you will be lost and have no idea whats going on. But thats not a problem for me because I did indeed read them in order. Im currently reading the 6th book in this series (Song of Susannah) and I cant wait to get through that one and the 7th one (The Dark Tower) to see how it all comes out. I'll say this for you S.K. you definetly know how to grab your reader's attention in a death lock and you dont let go until whatever particular novel they are reading ends.

Just finished Wolves of Calla and about to continue with Song of Susannah. Great story! Every next part is better then last, can not wait the last one. I really enjoy Stephen Kings knowledge of the human behavier in extreme situations and his expression of it in his writings. Greetings from Estonia and wishing the same great ideas for the future!
