IMAGINATION JUST BECAME OUR GREATEST WEAPON.
In Egypt, an archaeological team discovers the lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Seven years later, every public school student in America takes a strange new test, but only six are chosen to attend a summer program at the mysterious Institute for the Cultivation of Intuitive Cognition, where nothing is as it appears to be, including the students themselves.
Roman Jackson, 11—the lonely artist.
Sees things. Around people. Things he can never, ever tell.
Samantha Prescott, 16—the sarcastic nerd.
Isolated by a premonition even she doesn’t understand.
Daniel Walker, 17—the shy musician.
Hides his private thoughts in the soundtrack of his mind.
Kaitlyn Wright, 15—the bubbly engineer.
Can fix anything, except the one thing that matters most.
Mackenzie Gray, 17—the disciplined athlete.
Armors her deepest fears against a world she can’t control.
Ashton Hunt, 17—the frustrated gamer.
Hoping to turn pro, and a constant disappointment to his father.
But why is the U.S. government so interested in six outcasts? And what, exactly, is it teaching them to do? Now, they must band together to uncover the true purpose behind the institute—and the ancient secrets that lie hidden beneath its surface...

Advanced middle school students and high school students who enjoy adventure, fantasy, and suspense stories will love this book. It emphasizes the power of intuition and the importance of friendship. The characters are well crafted, and the plot line is intriguing because there are tough choices for the characters, high stakes, and unexpected twists and turns.

The Intuitives was one of the best Young Adult books I've read in awhile. ... It builds on the lives of six young people, each with a special set of gifts that sometimes alienates them from the world at large. As they are drawn into a world that uses their collective gifts in a way they could never have imagined, one sees the inner obstacles they must overcome and the personal bonds they form. This novel is meticulously written and beautifully crafted. Part thriller, part fantasy, it captures the imagination and leaves you wanting more. Libraries will be clamoring for this one for their Young Adult collection, and I'll be the first in line. I'm ready for the sequel! ~ Donna Alvis, Branch Manager, West Georgia Regional Library
This book was so refreshing to me! It was so unique and diverse, and I adored the characters. Also, I found that The Intuitives was so original, and that's something you don't see often in YA novels today! ... I have to applaud Erin and Steven for their wicked writing skills! ~ The Lovely Shelf Book Blog
So what did I like about this book? Ummm... Everything! What wasn't there to like! Intriguing characters, government secrets, ancient legends and mysterious abilities. Oh, and mythical creatures! ... Each character is uniquely different and I love them ALL! ~ Author Errin Krystal
I won this book here on goodreads. Oh My God! It has been a long time since a book has hooked me so that I could not put it down. I read this in 2 days - but only because I had to go to work. I sincerely hope this is the beginning of a series because I NEED the story to continue. ~ Teresa Lavender, Goodreads Reviewer
I fully encourage everyone to give this book a read. I consider it a must read. I've read it twice now, and will revisit it a third time. I honestly can't wait until my youngest daughter is old enough to read this book. ~ Miles Morton II, Goodreads Reviewer
It didn't take me long to become completely engulfed by The Intutitives! I devoured this book, pausing my reading only when absolutely necessary. When real life intruded and I needed to put the book down, I found my mind returning to The Intuitives' incredibly engaging characters or guessing what turn the plot would take next. This book is the perfect blend of fantasy and science, of smarts and heart. I'm already looking forward to a sequel and I think it would be a great movie! ~ Julie Yates, Goodreads ReviewerFrom the Publisher
