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.

“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.

“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.


  • Must read for sci-fi fans

    Gripping page turner with intriguing characters. King masterfully describes the gaunt landscapes of Roland’s world-that-has-passed-on. Can’t believe I never read this until now.
  • Awesome!

    This drew me in, even more than the first book of this series. Ready for book 3!
  • Roland

    By Sasqutach808
    There aren’t too many characters in all of literature that evoke such curiosity as Roland. Fantastic story, keeps you wanting more.
  • Roland’s journey gets more exciting!

    By ES the horror fan
    The first book was good, but this one is a big improvement! Not only does it tie up a loose end from the first book, it’s the book that also first introduces Roland, the Last Gunslinger, to his allies and explains how he brought them together. At the same time, it’s a thrilling, action-packed adventure that seldom spends any time NOT focusing on the dangers that make it so exciting! If you liked the first Dark Tower volume the slightest bit, you’ll be drawn to every intriguing page of The Drawing of the Three!
  • Absolutely loved this book!

    By Benjamin K.E.
    After thinking the first book was just okay, I can't believe how much I enjoyed this one! The whole concept of the door in this book reminds me a lot of 11.22.63, but I actually think I enjoyed this book even more (which is saying a lot). Note: anyone who says you can start this series on book two without reading book one is wrong; you most definitely need to read The Gunslinger before starting this novel. (I'd even recommend reading The Stand beforehand also).
  • My favorite in the entire series

    The title says it all
  • North South East and West

    By Original Sajoe
    I really enjoyed this book in spite of the fact North in his world is actually South in ours. Also, the use of language was different back then so in this day of political correctness, the raw language was shockingly refreshing rather than offensive.
  • I want guidall back!

    By Tyler Gore
    I love this series and the new voice of this novel does it no justice! Why did you have to change?!
  • Drawing of the me

    By Bigs_03_
    This book really drew me in far more intensely than did the first. This adventure kicked off by these three gunslingers is truly an epic. I cannot wait to see what comes next!
