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.
