Stephen King's The Wind Through The Keyhole is his return to The Dark Tower series. It is his first Dark Tower novel in 7 years and chronologically this novel fits in between Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla.

The good news is that Roland Deschain and his gang of gunslingers are back but the bad news is that they are only back for a small amount of time in this novel.

The Wind Through The Keyhole begins following the events in Wizard and Glass but very little happens before Roland begins narrating a tale from his youth.

This tale of Roland's younger days is quite good until that story stops so that the younger Roland can tell a different story. The Wind Through The Keyhole is essentially a story within a story within a story.

Basically two thirds of this book is a story told by the younger Roland which is almost unrelated to The Dark Tower. Its like Stephen King wrote a fantasy story and then added a few pages of Roland to link it to the Dark Tower series.

The story itself is perfectly fine but it dominates this book and as a Dark Tower fan I was hoping for more involvement from Roland, Eddie, Susanah and Jake. Even a longer tale of young Roland would have done.

I loved it. As an ardent fan of the dark tower series I obviously had to buy it but I think it makes a great tale in itself too and adds yet another dimension to kings epic. There is always a risk of slight disappointment with these offshoots to a mainstream story - but certinly not in this case. I highly recommend it
