TV spot for Stephen King's The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep

Are you stoked to check out CBS's "Under the Dome" when it premieres tonight? I knew I am! As a fan of most anything Stephen King writes, I've been pretty excited to see what CBS has in store for us with their adaptation of the King novel. And if you're one of the millions who will be tuning in tonight you'll get to check out a cool TV spot for King's upcoming "Doctor Sleep", which finds the author returning to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, "The Shining". Lucky for you, you're an AITH reader so you get an early peek at it as we have it for you below!

On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the “steam” that children with the “shining” produce when they are slowly tortured to death.

Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant “shining” power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.”

Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

The novel hits shelves on September 24, but you can pre-order it now by clicking HERE. If you're a Kindle reader, you can grab it HERE.
