In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent, and while they sleep they go to another place....

A thousand years have passed since a dragon has been seen in the world. Science and technology have replaced magic, which has dwindled until it has become little more than an element of myth and legend. There are those who still have dragon blood flowing through their veins, distant descendants of the mighty creatures of old. These rare humans have the power to cast magic, the power to heal, and the power to craft alchemical weapons capable of starting wars...or ending them.

Good listen. Nice mix of sifi and fantasy. Character development and plot lines are good but nothing special.

Worth a listen

First came the days of the plague. Then came the dreams. Dark dreams that warned of the coming of the dark man. The apostate of death, his worn-down boot heels tramping the night roads. The warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil. His time is at hand. His empire grows in the west and the Apocalypse looms. For hundreds of thousands of fans who read The Stand in its original version and wanted more, this new edition is Stephen King's gift.

Well I can honestly say that this has become my Favorited King book and I have read most of them now.



This beautiful and terrifying novel, takes place at the start of the 1990's with a super flu killing off 99.8 percent of the population. However it doesn't end there, other threats and tragedy face the survivors of this strange new world.



This book is more about the journey than the actual stand, but all journeys must end at some point, even if it only means that a new journey is about to start.



If you haven't read this book then do. you will laugh and cry, and want the story nexer to end. This is the first book that I have ever wished I could start over without knowing what the ending would be so that I could enjoy it all again.
