The Talisman: Road of Trials by Stephen King

‘Jack had been six when it really started...’So opens our short story. Short? At around 160 pages, yes, all too short and I say this because I enjoyed it way too much.This book is a rare treat; a great story with artwork that more that matches the storytelling.
