In this stunning father/son cooperation, Stephen King and also Owen King inform the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if females vanished from the world of males?

In a future so actual and also near it could be now, something takes place when females falling asleep: they come to be shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze covering their bodies is disrupted or violated, the ladies become feral and also marvelously terrible. And while they sleep they most likely to an additional area, a better area, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare.

One lady, the strange “Eve Black,” is unsusceptible to the blessing or curse of the resting disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be researched? Or is she a demon that must be slaughtered? Deserted, entrusted to their increasingly primal advises, the guys divide right into warring factions, some intending to kill Eve, some to save her. Others manipulate the chaos to inflict their own vengeance on new opponents. All resort to violence in a suddenly all-male world.

Embed in a little Appalachian town whose main employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is an extremely provocative, gloriously significant father-son collaboration that feels especially urgent as well as pertinent today.
