Cover Reveal: 'The Institute' By Stephen King

Stephen King is back to terrify the kids in all of us... He is a prolific writer, but I think he does not write fast enough for my liking. On the otherhand the good thing about the release of his next novel is it will be timely for my birthday this year. What a great treat indeed.

His next novel that will scare the shit out of us is titled The Institute. That's not really a chilling title, is it? But knowing King's style you will be up for a great surprise. Similaryly, don't be fooled by the not-so-harmful cover art, which you can see below.

Check out the cover of The Institute by Stephen King.


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.

The Institute by Stephen King will be released on September 10, 2019.
