If you enjoy boss battles and grandiose conspiracies, the allure of cosmic forces moving beneath the surface of sleepy reality. Then this novel may be fore you. What you enjoy “ Stephan King ” is his obsession with minor details and irrelevant back story. His gift for portraying the lives of ordinary people, his sly asides to the reader and loving literary references. You are likely to find this book in spite of its 500 pages too cursory, too interested in the wrong things. “ The Institute ” is already being billed as IT for the trump age.

“ Stephan King ” protagonists have been hunted by all sorts of malevolent begins from demonic clown of “ It ” to the fiendish cowboy “ Randall Flagg ” in “ The Stand ” but as scary as these supernatural bad guys can be. “ King’s ” most unsettling antagonists are human size. The blocked writer sliding in to delusions of grandeur and domestic violence. The bullied teenager made homicidal by the cruelty of her peers. We can see something of ourselves in these characters and recognize in them our own capacity for evil “ The Institute ” belongs to this second category and is as consummately honed and enthralling as the very best of his work. It has no ghost, no vampires, no metamorphosing diabolical entities or invaders from other dimensions’ intent on tormenting innocent children. Innocent children are tormented in “ The Institute ” but the people who do it are much like you and me.

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 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 ”.

Back Cover Page

As psychically terrifying as fire starter and the spectacular kid power of it “ The Institute ” is another winner, creepy and touching and horrifyingly believable all at once.
