The Intuitives by Erin Michelle Sky, Steven Brown

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...

Before history catches up to them.

About the Author

About the Author

As a child, Erin fell in love with llamas and with the books of Anne McCaffrey, whose Dragonriders of Pern series inspired her to become a writer. When she finally met Anne McCaffrey at a fantasy convention some two decades later, she wept uncontrollably throughout the entire affair. She does significantly better with llamas.

She and co-author Steven Brown are known together as Dragon Authors, writing science fiction and fantasy novels for teens and adults. You can find them at DragonAuthors.com.

Steven spent his childhood reading anything he could get his hands on, sharing his favorite stories with his younger brothers and then acting them out, especially if this required sword fighting on horseback. When they ran out of books, he wrote his own, including his brothers as the main characters by sketching original illustrations on magazine clippings.

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 dialogue is captivating and shows an awareness of audience, along with an appreciation for preteens and teenagers. This book would be a great choice for secondary library shelves. ~ Margaret Robbins, Adult Reviewer, Journal of Language and Literacy Education

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

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 Reviewer

The Intuitives is the debut novel of co-authors Erin Michelle Sky ...
The Intuitives is the debut novel of co-authors Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown. A fascinating, fantastical story of six extraordinary and engaging young adults, each with unique and “intuitive” abilities – abilities they didn’t even know they had; that is, until they are brought together for a reason they could not possibly understand. The individual personalities of each of the main characters are well developed, and the interpersonal relationships between them lead to strong bonds that help them overcome the many challenges they face as they work to achieve their common, yet unknown goal. By the end of the story you begin to believe their incredible journey may not be as far-fetched as you once thought. While written as a standalone novel, it’s clear the authors have left lots of room for new and exciting adventures for the Intuitives. Not only that, they masterfully tell the tale leaving you wanting more. Keeping my fingers crossed……

Reviewed by Francine Zane for Readers' Favorite Standardized testing takes on a whole new meaning in The Intuitives by Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown. When schools start testing intuition, five teenagers and one very special little boy from eclectic backgrounds are thrown together by Homeland Security in a special summer program to develop their unconscious abilities. Kept in the dark about the serious nature of their training, the kids quickly bond and learn that what one man cannot do alone, a uniquely developed team of teenagers can accomplish with flair. I love, love, love The Intuitives by Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown. From the time the authors took to set up each character in individual chapters before throwing them together in a group setting to the touching relationship between the tough-guy gamer and the tender-hearted young boy from an abusive background, every chapter is honed to a fine point. Every detail builds upon the last to create a picture of team building and discovery that is carefully orchestrated under the care of Ammu, their instructor and mentor. He is the type of educator all teachers should aspire to become. Even under extreme pressure, he fights for what is good and right for his students. Sky and Brown did not skip out on the visuals either. From the secret inner vision of people’s souls that only Sketch can see to the magnificent detail of the mythical beasts, I was drawn deeper into the story, and when the story was done, I felt both satisfied and saddened to leave my new BFFs. Now, where do I sign up for my golden gryphon cub?
