On this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King inform the very best of high-stakes tales: what would possibly occur if girls disappeared from the world of males?
In a future so actual and close to it is perhaps now, one thing occurs when girls fall asleep: they turn into shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they’re woke up, if the gauze wrapping their our bodies is disturbed or violated, the ladies turn into feral and spectacularly violent. And whereas they sleep they go to a different place, a greater place, the place concord prevails and battle is uncommon.
One lady, the mysterious “Eve Black,” is resistant to the blessing or curse of the sleeping illness. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who have to be slain? Deserted, left to their more and more primal urges, the lads divide into warring factions, some eager to kill Eve, some to save lots of her. Others exploit the chaos to wreak their very own vengeance on new enemies. All flip to violence in a all of a sudden all-male world.
Set in a small Appalachian city whose main employer is a girls’s jail, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously dramatic father-son collaboration that feels significantly pressing and related immediately.
