Roland Deschain is now a man – a man with only one goal in life: to pursue the Man in Black to the end of Mid-World and make him pay for destroying everything dear to him. But is this really a pursuit? Or is the Man in Black luring him into a maze of dead ends and false horizons? Is the collapse of Mid-World already a forgone conclusion? The answer – as always – lies frustratingly at the world’s end. And with what John Farson has planned for him, Roland might not make it that far.”
