The master craftsman spins an eerie tale of state sponsored research units, and children with supernatural abilities. Themes of revenge and betrayed, childhood, innocence, hover ominously over a complex narrative in prison young people with incredible powers, as the King shows his impressive storytelling courage, once again. Deep in the woods of Maine, there is a dark state structure in which the children abducted from the United States, are in prison. In the Institute they are subjected to a series of tests and procedures will combine their exceptional skills – telepathy, telekinesis – concentration of effect. Luca Ellis is the latest recruit. He is just a normal 12-year-old, unless that is not only smart, he is super-intelligent. And he has another gift, which the Institute wants to use… Far away, in a small town in the South C arolina, an ex-policeman Tim Jamieson took a job for the local Sherriff. In practice, only to walk to the beat of the music. But he is going to take the most sensational case of his career. The back of the Institute, the oppressed games and hallways where the posters advertising ‘just another day in paradise’, Luke, his friend Kalisha and the other children are in no doubt that they are prisoners, not guests. And there is no hope of escape. But the great events can turn upon the hinges, and Luke is going to a team with a new, even younger recruit, Avery Dixon, whose ability to read minds is off the scale. While the Institution may wish to exploit their powers for covert ends, the intelligence of Luke and Avery is beyond anything that even those who are running the experiments – even the infamous Mrs. Sigsby suspect. Exciting, exciting, exciting, The Institute is a magnificent novel of a childhood betrayed, and hope to be found again. Please note: the inner sleeves may vary.
