Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining.

Doctor Sleep is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

King says he wanted to know what happened to Danny Torrance, the boy at the heart of The Shining, after his terrible experience in the Overlook Hotel. The instantly riveting Doctor Sleep picks up the story of the now middle-aged Dan, working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire, and the very special twelve-year old girl he must save from a group 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 tween 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...

Doctor Sleep – Stephen King This thrilling sequel (which can be read as a stand-alone) continues the story of Dan Torrance decades after the events in “The Shining” and his life altering encounter with 12 year-old Abra who possesses the strongest 'shining' ability known. What starts off as an innocent telekinetic connection between Dan and Abra becomes caught in the path of the True Knot, a tribe of supposed immortals who torture those with the 'shining' to death in the quest of immortality. King's style confronts the nature of addiction, showing the lengthy journey people will travel to satisfy their needs Carmen – Blacktown - Carmen (QBD)
