One gets the feeling that this colossal story means a lot to King, that he's telling it because he has to....he's giving The Dark Tower everything he's got. (San Francisco Chronicle)
Wolves of the Calla is one of the strongest entries yet in what will surely be a master storyteller's magnum opus. (Locus)
[A] hypnotic blend of suspense and sentimentality...a sprawling, eventful tale of demons, monsters, narrow escapes, and magic portals. (The New York Times Book Review)
The man can spin a yarn, and a great one at that. (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
The master of the macabre....[King] is still quite the entertainer. (People)
An impressive work of mythic magnitude. May turn out to be Stephen King's greatest literary achievement. (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
It works because King, despite his long resume, keeps insisting on surprising himself and, in so doing, surprising us. (The Kansas City Star)
Brilliant in technique and ability...Feed your head! Now dig in, 'cause King's latest in this seven-course banquet...is a lip-smacking, brain-filling repast. (The Denver Post)
"The Dark Tower" is King's masterpiece....Wolves of the Calla succeeds as a standalone work. (Bangor Daily News)
The high suspense and extensive character development here...plus the enormity of King's ever-expanding universe, will surely keep his "Constant Readers" in awe. (Publishers Weekly)

Wolves of the Calla adheres to the series' western roots by giving us the Mid-World version of The Magnificent Seven. And for the most part King pulled it off. This is a worthy entry in the series.
Going todash and those spine-tingling chimes, visiting the rose in the vacant lot, the Ka-Tet being welcomed at the town pavilion, Callahan's tale and the highways in hiding, the bizarre rural dialect of the townsfolk, training the Sisters of Oriza, Jake and the Dogan, confronting Andy, and the final showdown with the Wolves of course.
Saving that pushover Calvin Tower and his stupid rare books, the over-and-over-and-overuse of the number nineteen, the cartoonish weapons of the Wolves—their lazer swords (lightsabers from Star Wars) and their sneetch grenades (snitches from Harry Potter), and book 5's number one gripe from the fans: Stephen King inserting himself into the story. This will play out more in the next two books, but in my opinion it's a wash. King being in the story works in some places and not so well in others.
Highly Recommended!!!!!!! Too bad I could not give 10 stars.
#1 The Gunslinger - Introduction to the last Gunslinger, Roland. This book was wonderful. It introduces you to some of the characters of the series and gives you the Gunslinger's quest.
#2 - The Drawing of the Three - Roland pulls future Gunslingers, Jake, Eddie, and Suzannah from our world over to his. I really enjoyed how this was done. The characters are very likeable (especially OY)
#3 - The Wastelands - The Gunslingers make continue on their way. Blaine really is a pain.
#4 - Wizard and Glass - Roland tells them the story of Susan, The girl at the window. A very sad thing that happened to him in childhood. A beautiful story.
#5 - Wolves of the Calla - The gunslingers help a town that is about to have their children taken. Jake makes a friend his own age. A character from another King book is met. This book was well put together.
#6 - Song of Suzannah - This one tells of something that Suzannah is going through.
#7 - The Dark Tower - The quest is finally over. The tower is reached. But who will make it there? Believe it or not this book made me cry.
#* - The Wind Through the Keyhole - This story takes place between some of the other books. It is Roland and his gang taking refuge from a storm and Roland telling stories to pass the time. The stories are beautifully written.
All of the stories in this series are exceptional. I love how they flow together. It really does seem like one continuous book.
