The sixth novel in Stephen King’s seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

To give birth to her “chap,” demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah…and terrifying to the “daughter of none” who shares her body and mind.

Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining ka-tet climbs to the Doorway Cave … and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who in a struggle to cope—with each other and with an alien environment— “go todash” to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term.

Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn’t. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem’s Lot, a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Pure storytelling.”

    Washington Post

  • “There’s something about [this series]…that keeps a seven-volume story bracingly strong as it veers toward its Armageddon-like conclusion.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The climax to the tale with which King has tantalized readers for nearly a quarter of a century approaches. Close on the heels of Wolves of the Calla, this penultimate volume winds its way nimbly through the time-space continuum…In the end, King has his readers where he wants them: breathlessly waiting for more.”

    " The Song of Susannah, written by Stephen King and narrated by George Guidall is the sixth book in the Gun Slinger series. This is Mr. King's Opus Magnum and many of his other books owe it's origin to this masterpiece. Start at book number one (the gunslinger) and listen or read them all. It is fantastic and well worth the time. George Guidall is a fantastic narrator of this book. After completion of the sixth book in the series the characters in the book have become well developed and at this point it is natural to have a favorite. Mine is Eddie Dean. "

    " The sixth book of King's "Dark Tower" series, and as the end draws near, a frustrating one. The main characters are split, in more ways than one, and the momentum built by the tight focus of book 5 is lost, which was disappointing to me as a reader, though I have no doubt King's ends are thus being accomplished. "

    " The sixth book of the epic DARK TOWER saga is one of the shortest, and is the perfect book to lead into the grand finale of book seven. King moves all the players to their ultimate positions, gets the fireworks set up, and lights the match. Of course, he doesn't light them up until the final book. Still, this book is fine. It DOES NOT stand alone, though (none of the DARK TOWER books really do, except for the flashback of WIZARD & GLASS), so don't read it until you've read the previous five books of the story. "
