Publisher's Summary

Wentworth, Ohio: a small, friendly town where the Carver children bicker over sweets in the E-Z shop and writer Johnny Marinville is the only resident who minds his own business. On Poplar Street, apart from the impending storm, it's just a normal summer's day - with Frisbees flying, lawn mowers humming and barbeques grilling.
As the paperboy makes his round, he is unaware of the chrome-red van idling up the hill....
Soon the residents will be caught up in a game of wills as the regulators arrive in force to face a child whose powers of expression are just awakening.
If you like The Regulators, don't miss Desperation, written as an unidentical pair.

Desperation part two, Tak is back

If you liked Desperation this will be familiar territory, but with the added twist that Tak can bring horror to life in very real ways for a few residents of a very unlucky block in fictional town of Wentworth, Ohio, where some of the characters of the previous novel share a different reality in what is a related universe of horror, but do not fret about this unusual complication just take the ride into Stephen King’s world and enjoy all the evil from the safety of your reality.

A fun turn on the vampire theme, here the entity requires fear and pain to grow its power and delivers in buckets of blood and other bodily fluids. Not Stephen King’s best but fast and full of his usual americana and period description.
