In spite of shifting time and place, Roland the Last Gunfighter knows he is nearing his destination and thus the final confrontation of his quest. The center of the time-place continuum, THE DARK TOWER, beckons just beyond the horizon. However, as he has learned through his dangerous journey time is not linear and his path still has detours and setbacks as Roland and his ka-tet battle vampires in New York City's Dixie Pig.
That takes a bite out of his compatriots, but Roland knows the real adversary is Mordred, Mia's offspring from him and the were-spider Crimson King. Mordred, the essence of pure evil, confronts Roland to stop him from completing the mission. Though experienced with killing his own blood, Roland normally has no chance against his superpowerful antagonist. As members of his ka-tet fall, Roland needs the help of a talented somewhat befuddled individual to attain any chance of defeating his son.
The key cast members remain consistent to their personalities, especially Roland as the silent hero (from the 1960s spaghetti westerns).

The review of this Book prepared by Levi Benson
The Dark Tower is one of the greatest stories ever told. It is an epic fantasy adventure about a quest to save existance. The Tower is crumbling, and the Gunslinger and his companions must stop it before all structure and order of the universe collapses.

A man searches for a tower that is falling apart which in turn would destroy the world that he lives on, but a lot of the book is on his adventures.
