Adapted from Stephen King’s novella of the same name, The Little Sisters of Eluria continues the tale of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger. While wandering through the Desatoya Mountains searching for the trail of the Man in Black, Roland comes across the deserted town of Eluria. The only living—or once living—creatures he finds are a dead boy, a limping dog, and strange, singing insects. But just as Roland tries to give the boy a proper burial, he is attacked by the mutant Green Folk and beaten into unconsciousness. When he awakes, he finds his wounded body suspended by white bandages in the hospital tent of the Little Sisters of Eluria. Despite the beauty and sweetness of Sister Jenna, the order’s youngest member, Roland soon discovers that the blood-hungry Sisters are not human at all.
