Wow. I was interested with book one, but I couldn't fully connect to it for some reason. Now I'm more settled into what is happening. This book was awesome for me. I'm so into this universe now. It's epic. Stephen King just completely blows me away with his creativeness. I love his brain. I'm worried for these characters because with this author you never know what to expect. I see really bad things coming in the future, but the delivery grabs me so well. I can't wait to start the next book.
