Do you ever wonder what happened to little Danny Torrance from The Shining? I know I did, & luckily for us, so did Stephen King. After years spent dampening his shining with booze, Danny is now sober and using his abilities to help others. Life is pretty good until a twelve-year old girl named Abra, with shining stronger than his ever was, needs his help. He must face foes far stronger and ominous than any at the Overlook Hotel all those years ago, and it’s up to Danny and Abra to try and stop them. This is Stephen King at his best. I could not put this book down starting at page 1. You will not be disappointed. One of the best books of 2013.

Stephen King returns to the character and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, "The Shining," in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals.
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.
