Master storyteller Stephen King’s terrifying sequel to The Shining—an instant #1 New York Times bestseller that is "[a] vivid frightscape" (The New York Times).
On_x000D_ highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel _x000D_ in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of _x000D_ polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and _x000D_ spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, the True Knot are _x000D_ quasi-immortal, living off the steam that children with the shining _x000D_ produce when they are slowly tortured to death.
Haunted by the _x000D_ inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood_x000D_ year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s_x000D_ legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a _x000D_ New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a _x000D_ nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final _x000D_ comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor _x000D_ Sleep.”
Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her _x000D_ spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s _x000D_ own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival. _x000D_ This is an epic war between good and evil, glorious story that will _x000D_ thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to this icon in the Stephen King canon.
