AUREALIS AWARD FINALIST

Is the Devil more trustworthy than a record executive? Young guitar virtuoso Clarice Marnier is on the verge of success when she crosses the wrong A&​R man. Suddenly, instead of being signed to the major label, she finds herself blacklisted. So Clarice makes a deal with the Devil: the soul of her enemy for a record deal and a second chance. 

As Clarice and her band, Bloody Waters, begin their ascent to rock stardom they are beset by a strange array of enemies. Has-been guitar heroes, popstar succubi, spell-slinging DJs, angry divas and killer angels - every occult freak and music industry player in LA wants something from them, whether it's a slice of their fame or a bite of their souls. 

Clearly there's more at stake than just a record deal - but what does the Devil really want, and how far will Clarice go to protect what's hers?

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
