Description

On highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless-- mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, the True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the steam that children with the shining produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father' s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes " Doctor Sleep." Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan' s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra' s soul and survival. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to this icon in the King canon.

Professional reviews

"Will PattonÕs delivery enhances KingÕs prose in ways that make KingÕs work so much more enjoyable in audio than just reading it. This sequel to THE SHINING finds Danny Torrence, now middle-aged, returning to confront the inner demons left when his father came close to killing him one winter decades ago at the snowed-in Overlook Hotel. Now, Torrence must not only conquer his own demons but fight to protect another child who also has the shining, a supernatural power. PattonÕs narrative voice captures the rhythm of KingÕs words. His character voices, filled with a variety of regional American accents, remain consistent. Most importantly, the sinister aspects that embody characters and moments of this novel are superbly executed and will certainly leave listeners on edge.
