The Dark Tower series has always been coveted by many Stephen King fans, so it's a welcome sight to see another book added to the mythology even though Roland "The Gunslinger" Deschain's quest came to an end several years ago. Taking place between Volume 4 (Wizard & Glass) and Volume 5 (Wolves Of The Calla) we find Roland and his group seeking shelter from a deadly storm during their venture.

The incident recalls to Roland a past murder mystery he investigated in his youth as well as the story that he heard as a child that connects to the storm and the case from long ago. Roland decides to tell these tales to his comrades to pass the time, with the reader falling progressively into each story and then coming back to the present. Longtime readers are rewarded with bits of info that shed some light on a few characters we 're already familiar with, but the structure is very similar to Volume 4's heavy return to the past and therefore only a bit of time is spent expanding Roland 's current journey.

Still, for fans who believed that this series was over, a return to the wickedly bizarre and fantastical world that King created continues to prove itself as a fascinating read. Definitely a must for faithful followers.

This book fits into the previous series perfectly. I was heartbroken when I finished the last book, knowing that was the end of my time with Roland and his Ka-Tet. This book is mainly based around Roland telling a tale of a childhood story that he was told as a child. The story has the same gripping nature of the rest of the series, and does provide an all too familiar link. It also gives insight into more of Roland's past.
I would have enjoyed more time with Roland and the gang, but all in all, I was very happy with this book, and a feeling of familiar disappoint came at the end of this book; not disappointed in the book but rather that my time with the characters is once again over.

Much like all other dark tower fans, Im totally in love with this series, and again, much like dt fans out there, i was afraid this might not fit into the completed story. However, this book did not take anything away from the story it fit in so snuggly, and my fiance who is currently reading the series was able to seamlessly read this book into the previously completed saga. Well done once again SK, pleasant days and pleasant nights.

This book compliments the "Dark Tower" series, which were written 30 years ago. It reveals stories of a much younger Roland Deschain (The Gunslinger-main character) and is filled with Mid-World adventures...even if you haven't read the series, I recommend it to all readers, especially King fans.

On another note, The Dark Tower:The Drawing of the Three-The Prisoner, a 5-issue comic book miniseries from Marvel, will be released on September 17, 2014. Another Dark Tower gem for all Stephen King fans out there !!!

This book if you read it on its own without reading any of the other books from 'The Dark Tower' series would be great. However, the only part that puts it into the series is the use of the characters. It really holds no purpose to the other books, however its a nice read to see the ka-tet back together again.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2014
Format: Hardcover
"The Wind in the Keyhole"... is a very odd story. It has three stories layered inside each other -- we have a person telling a story, in which he tells a story to someone else.

And while this new addition to the Dark Tower saga doesn't add a lot to the overall saga, it's a richly textured return to the "world that has moved on." Stephen King spends much of the book (when he's not merrily flipping through narratives) adding more dimensions to his raw, wild world, where a few brave individuals fight against the dark.

Roland, Eddie, Jake, Susannah and Oy take shelter in an abandoned house when a massive storm known as the "starkblast" blows in. To pass the time, Roland begins to tell his ka-tet a story from his youth, before his father's death and the fall of Gilead.

Shortly after his mother's death, his father sent Roland and another young gunslinger named Jamie to Debaria. A small mining town is being ravaged by a "skin-man" -- a shapeshifter who can appear as any kind of predator. With only one witness to the skin-man's rampages, Roland will have to play detective to figure out the killer's identity.

And during one of the quieter moments, he tells a young boy "The Wind Through the Keyhole." It's the story of a boy named Tim, whose father is unexpectedly killed, and whose mother remarries an old friend... who turns out to be an abusive drunk. Desperate to help his mother, he makes a disastrous trip to see an ageless black-cloaked man.... and when that goes horribly wrong, on a quest to find Maerlyn so he can make things right.

He ain't Catherynne Valente, but Stephen King does an impressive job stacking the stories inside each other like a matrushka doll.
