Summary
Stephen King presents "a fresh adrenaline rush of terror" ( People ) in this electrifying #1 New York Times bestseller

The new minister came to Harlow, Maine, when Jamie Morton was a boy doing battle with his toy army men on the front lawn. The young Reverend Charles Jacobs and his beautiful wife brought new life to the local church and captivated their congregation. But with Jamie, he shares a secret obsession--a draw so powerful, it would have profound consequences five decades after the shattering tragedy that turned the preacher against God, and long after his final, scathing sermon. Now Jamie, a nomadic rock guitarist hooked on heroin, meets Charles Jacobs again. And when their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil's devising, Jamie discovers that the word revival has many meanings....

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Saying that this is one of King's most harrowing, most fatalistic works should only endear it to his base this is horror, after all; we're not here for the positive vibes. In the kind of loose, garrulous voice that has marked his last decade, King spins the yarn of Jamie Morton and Reverend Charles Jacobs, whose lives wretchedly intertwine for 50 years. Jamie is six when he meets the wholesome preacher whose hobby, electronics, makes him a hit with the Methodist youth. A tragic accident leads to Jacobs' loss of faith readers will also be scarred but only increases his devotion to electrical experimentation: one of God's doorways to the infinite. Jamie grows up to be a drug-addicted rhythm guitarist, but a reunion at Jacobs' electricity-based carnival act proves the curative potential of secret electricity . . . despite unsettling side effects. Frankenstein is a touchstone here, but more so is Lovecraft, as King edges ever closer to the madness of the unknowable and eventually, to his courageous credit, stares directly at it. Though narrative wheels spin in place on occasion, the book's engine is powered by high-octane dread, and few fuels run stronger. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This is old-school, capital-H horror the likes of Thinner, Pet Sematary, and The Shining. Readers will be up for the endurance test.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "King's new thriller begins in Maine the summer of 1962, when its narrator, Jamie Morton, at age six, meets a charismatic young minister named Charles Jacobs, who soon becomes something of a mentor. Years later, as Jamie pursues a career as an itinerant rock musician, he crosses paths with Jacobs, who is now working his way from carnival huckster to wealthy faith healer and has developed an obsession with the curative powers of electricity. Jacobs, aged, ill, and more than a little crazed, convinces a skeptical but curious Jaime to assist him in his ultimate experiment with a "secret" form of electricity that he believes will allow him to "tap into the secrets of the universe." Screen actor Morse (The Green Mile) has a natural, down-to-earth delivery. His middle-aged Jamie narrates with a soft, knowing yet wistful voice as he recalls the happier days of smalltown life, his first paid job as a musician, his first romance. We hear his hope that Jacobs's "secret electricity" will heal his addiction to heroin, and the fear and uncertainty prompted by the experiment's nightmarish effects. Morse's Jacobs, who initially sounds bright and witty and filled with charm, becomes a man distracted and unemotional. By the novel's end, age and infirmity have slurred his speech.
