THE DARK TOWER: THE END OF THE ROAD
When Michael Whelan read and illustrated the first Dark Tower book, he loved the story and like many fans, was thrilled when Stephen King continued the series. When he took on the task of illustrating the last book, this was the first painting he did. It was used as the endpapers for the hardcover editions. Dedicated readers will recognize hidden messages in the trees which are described by King in the story.
The Dark Tower
The most anticipated book in Stephen King's legendary career, The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower is the final installment to the bestselling author's epic series-a story that began thirty-three years ago with The Gunslinger and has gathered millions of ardent fans since Donald M. Grant published a limited edition of that first volume in 1981. This volume completes the quest of Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger in a world which has "moved on." Like the first book in the series, the last is beautifully illustrated by famed fantasy artist Michael Whelan. And with the same mix of triumph and loss that made Wolves of the Calla a runaway bestseller, The Dark Tower tracks Roland towards his ultimate goal, the tower itself-the center of all time, all place. But this time, as Roland's ka-tet moves through The Dixie Pig in New York City to Algul Siento in End-World, the losses come from within his circle of companions. His antagonists, from Mia's chap Mordred to the force of evil known as the Crimson King, grow more desperate. In the final stage of his search, Roland needs one more ally, a last key to gain entry to the tower. What awaits him there, at the tower's very top, is a mystery sure to awe King's legions of devoted fans.
