The Curator

We rated this book:


Riding high on the bestselling success of Sleeping Beauties, which was co-written with his dad, Stephen King, Owen King returns with another fantastical tale in The Curator.

Welcome to the city known as the “The Fairest,” where things are anything but normal, at least with what we consider “normal.” It is a beautiful city with a running river and breathtaking mountains that divide it in twain. There’s also the Morgue Ship, and cats that are revered as great beings, thieves that are considered noble, and plenty of other strange eccentricities that many call home.

Formerly a university domestic servant, Dora has a secret desire she doesn’t want anyone to know about and that’s to find where her brother went. Specifically, after he died. She’s pretty sure it’s got something to do with the Museum of Psykical Research, which is where her brother used to work.

Owen King has written an interesting adventure tale in The Curator, which at times feels like a familiar fairytale and at others like a wonderfully unique work of fantasy. Perhaps taking after his father, the book takes a little while to get started as the reader wonders where things might be going, but eventually finds its footing and takes off on its special journey.
