Description: They call it the Academy. A secluded, cliff-top mansion overlooking the rugged Pacific coast. A school for children gifted -- or cursed -- with extraordinary minds. Children soon to come under the influence of an intelligence even more brilliant than their own -- and unspeakably evil. For within this mind a dark plan is taking form. A plan so horrifying, no one will believe it. No one but the children. And for them it is already too late. Too late, unless one young student can resist the seductive invitation that will lead... into the Shadows.

How about this for an oxymoron, there is a John Saul LitGroup on grramazon. Although this was a baby-step up from the 'Brain Child' encounter of last week, I can say, hand on heart, that Saul is not my man.
