Owen King

  • Un phénomène inexplicable touche les femmes sur toute la planète : une sorte de cocon les enveloppe durant leur sommeil, et si l'on tente de les réveiller, on prend le risque de les transformer en véritables furies. Bientôt, presque toutes sont touchées par la fièvre Aurora, et le monde est livré à la violence masculine. À Dooling, petite ville des Appalaches, la mystérieuse Evie semble immunisée contre cette épidémie. Cas d'étude pour la science ou créature démoniaque, échappera-t-elle à la fureur des hommes privés soudainement de femmes ?

If awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed, the women become feral and spectacularly violent...In the small town of Dooling, West Virginia, the virus is spreading through a women's prison, affecting all the inmates except one. Soon, word spreads about the mysterious Evie, who seems able to sleep - and wake. Is she a medical anomaly or a demon to be slain? The abandoned men, left to their increasingly primal devices, are fighting each other, while Dooling's Sheriff, Lila Norcross, is just fighting to stay awake.And the sleeping women are about to open their eyes to a new world altogether...
