Die große Fortsetzung von »Shining«
Auf Amerikas Highways ist eine mörderische Sekte unterwegs. Sie hat es auf Kinder abgesehen, die das Shining haben. Stephen King kehrt zu den Figuren und Szenarien eines seiner berühmtesten Romane zurück: Der Dreirad fahrende kleine Danny, der im Hotel Overlook so unter seinem besessenen Vater hat leiden müssen, ist erwachsen geworden. Aber die Vergangenheit lässt ihn nicht los, und wieder gerät er in einen Kampf zwischen Gut und Böse. Die zwölfjährige Abra hat das Shining. Kann er sie retten?
Iconic horror author King (Joyland) picks up the narrative threads of The Shining many years on. Young psychic Danny Torrance has become a middle-aged alcoholic (he now goes by "Dan"), bearing his powers and his guilt as equal burdens. A lucky break gets him a job in a hospice in a small New England town. Using his abilities to ease the passing of the terminally ill, he remains blissfully unaware of the actions of the True Knot, a caravan of human parasites crisscrossing the map in their RVs as they search for children with "the shining" (psychic abilities of the kind that Dan possesses), upon whom they feed. When a girl named Abra Stone is born with powers that dwarf Dan's, she attracts the attention of the True Knot's leader the predatory Rose the Hat. Dan is forced to help Abra confront the Knot, and face his own lingering demons. Less terrifying than its famous predecessor, perhaps because of the author's obvious affection for even the most repellant characters, King's latest is still a gripping, taut read that provides a satisfying conclusion to Danny Torrance's story.
