'TIS THE SEASON FOR REVENGE

If asked, Thia McDaniel would say she has more than enough trouble.

One: She is the new owner of Eclectica, the most popular gift store in Granite Springs. If the advent of the winter holidays isn't the busiest shopping time of the year, she doesn't want to know what is.

Two: Not only is magic real, but thanks to the powers she unwittingly received from the Stone of Shadows, it is inside her—and until she learns control, she'll be a danger to herself and anyone within range. (Which could be everyone.) 

Three: She hasn't heard from Cormac.

Four: No one has heard from Cassie, either.

Five: The Brigantium—despite being plagued with troubles of its own—continues to want her to join its secret ranks. But in the aftermath of betrayal from within, can the group be trusted?

And that's before Eclectica's cafe manager disappears under suspicious circumstances and everything gets so much worse.

A NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2019 SELECTION

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It.

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.
