Under the direction and guidance of King himself, Dark Tower: The Long Road Home picks up directly after the events of Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born, with Roland Deschain and his ka-tet fighting for their very survival.  After the death of Susan, Roland and his companions try to make their way home, but after life changing events, one can never really go home again.  With the Big Coffin Hunters on their trail and visions of Susan's death dancing in Roland's head, seemingly nothing else can go wrong. The danger increases and Roland is forever changed when he falls into a coma and the people who burned Susan are determined to make him their next victim.
