As some of you might have noticed, I’ve already posted one review this month. It was of Flame (Frost Chronicles, Book2) by Erin Latimer and was originally scheduled for the end of July, but due to some other book-related commitments was posted a couple of days later.
As for what is scheduled for this month: one short story and one novel. Let’s start with the novel.
The Gunslinger – The Dark Tower, Book 1
Author: Stephen King
Themes & Genres: Suspense, Fantasy
Roland is a haunting figure, a loner, on a spellbinding journey toward the mysterious Dark Tower, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own.
On his quest, Roland begins a friendship with a kid from New York named Jake, encounters an alluring woman and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.
