Nine years gone since the gunslingers protected the land. Nine years gone since the fall of Gilead, when the Good Man's dark army brutally took the ancient city from those same gunslingers and pushed them into the wilderness beyond. With the Affiliation busted, it's been a time of retrenchment for Roland and what remains of his ka-tete, hiding and on the run from marauding mutants and Farson's mercenaries, But now, with the revelation that one of the Beam that support the Dark Tower is broken, thing couldn't possibly be any worse: First Roland's homeland, and now Mid-World itself, are on the brink of destruction.

The backstory of Roland Deschain marches on towards its inevitable conclusion and we finally arrive at the infamous Battle of Jericho Hill—long alluded to in the novels. I imagined it to be like a Custer's Last Stand of Mid-World.

The plot is thinner here than the climactic Fall of Gilead though I think that's to be expected. The Battle of Jericho Hill is the dark coda of a long decline, of an empire and for Roland personally.

Beginning immediately after the fall of Gilead, Roland and his ka-tet make one last desperate stand against Farson and the Crimson King, leading to the Gunslinger we know today.

On of my favorite in the series. Same great artwork, action and dialogue with an even more exciting and dramatic story. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves The Dark Tower novels and the character of Roland.
