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.

Author Erin Michelle Sky
Author Steven Brown

As a child, Erin Michelle Sky 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.

Steven Brown 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.

Together, they are the permanent writing team known as Dragon Authors. You can find them most often online on Twitter and on their blog, where they review other books and create cringeworthy videos for YouTube. (And occasionally talk about their own work.) Sign up for their blog newsletter here!
