Wolves in the Calla - The Dark Tower V *****

The Dark Tower V was once again not a disappointment. Wolves in the Calla was great! I don't know how they keep getting better, but they do! Here is a short synopsis from King's site describing it.

In the borderlands that lie between Mid-World and End-World, Roland and his friends are approached by a frightened band of representatives from the nearby town of Calla Bryn Sturgis. In less than a month, the Calla will be attacked by the Wolves-those masked riders that gallop out of Thunderclap once a generation to steal the town's children. The Calla folken need the kind of help that only gunslingers can give, and if they agree to help, the town's priest-Father Callahan, Maine-promises to give them the most potent and treacherous of magic balls. Meanwhile, in the New York of 1977, how can Roland and his friends both save the rose and fight the Wolves? Only by using magic... Time is running out on all levels of the Tower, but unless the minions of Thunderclap both in our world and in Mid-World are defeated, they will never reach that great lynchpin of the time/space continuum which, even now, begins to totter.

FYI: Check out Needle in Hand to see the cross stitch items I've been working on.

I was just going to send you an email and ask how the books were coming along. Work is stalled on the Tower until I get my order of some great stuff for it.
