The Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three: Bitter Medicine
Stephen King's Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three - Bitter Medicine - Robin Furth,Peter David,Jonathan Marks

 

I'm sorry to say that I didn't like this one any more than the last entry in "The Drawing of the Three" series. It's like the train stopped in meh-ville and now it's parking there long term.

 

The story is okay, but I already know it-I'm reading the graphic novels because I want to learn more and because I like the art. Now that I'm not digging the art the story needs to work extra hard to keep me going with these.

 

At this point, I'm not sure I will keep going.

Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three: The Lady of Shadows
Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three: Lady of Shadows - Peter David,Jonathan Marks,Robin Furth

All I can seem to muster up about this entry is "meh." I'm not crazy about the artwork or the story. 

 

Maybe it's is because I'm also re-reading the books via audio and recently finished The Song of Susanna and I'm just  plain Odetta'd out? I'll admit this is very possible. 

 

I have the next entry in the series on hand and I'll see how it goes with that.

The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley $1.99
The Hero and the Crown - Robin McKinley

Aerin is an outcast in her own father’s court, daughter of the foreign woman who, it was rumored, was a witch, and enchanted the king to marry her.

She makes friends with her father’s lame, retired warhorse, Talat, and discovers an old, overlooked, and dangerously imprecise recipe for dragon-fire-proof ointment in a dusty corner of her father’s library. Two years, many canter circles to the left to strengthen Talat’s weak leg, and many burnt twigs (and a few fingers) secretly experimenting with the ointment recipe later, Aerin is present when someone comes from an outlying village to report a marauding dragon to the king. Aerin slips off alone to fetch her horse, her sword, and her fireproof ointment . . .

But modern dragons, while formidable opponents fully capable of killing a human being, are small and accounted vermin. There is no honor in killing dragons. The great dragons are a tale out of ancient history.

That is, until the day that the king is riding out at the head of an army. A weary man on an exhausted horse staggers into the courtyard where the king’s troop is assembled: “The Black Dragon has come . . . Maur, who has not been seen for generations, the last of the great dragons, great as a mountain. Maur has awakened.”
