The Intuitives was edited by Sybil Carey, a former editor at Harbridge House. She spent her later years as a freelance editor and co-director of the Abbie Greenleaf Library in Franconia, NH. She "went to dance with the stars" on Sunday, December 20, 2015. The Intuitives was her final editing project.
Although she died before she had the opportunity to write a formal editor's review, Sybil spoke often of her love for these authors and for this book in particular. "The writing is so vivid!" she would say. "The characters are so real!" We wish she were still with us--for far more personal reasons than for the review she would have written.
"I love being part of this team. xoxoxoxo," she wrote on October 5, 2014. We've run our fingers over the x's and o's a thousand times since, cherishing each one, wishing they were more than just memories. She is credited for her editing on the very first page of The Intuitives, and she is in the final acknowledgments on the last. The book both begins and ends with her.
We hope readers will love it and believe in it as much as she did.

I love, love, love The Intuitives by Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown. ~ Reader's Favorite
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 (Vol. 13 Issue 1—Spring 2017)
This book is definitely one that I would read again or recommend to another. The authors kept me reading the book every chance I had. ~ Jordan White, Student Reviewer, Journal of Language and Literacy Education (Vol. 13 Issue 1—Spring 2017)
Vivid images will spark your imagination in this captivating battle between good and evil, leaving readers anxiously awaiting a sequel! Great read for anyone young or old who enjoys science fiction and even for those who didn’t know they did. ~ Editor Trish Jiles, The Times-Journal
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 Reviewer
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.

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. He and co-author Erin Michelle Sky are known together as Dragon Authors, writing science fiction and fantasy novels for teens and adults. You can find them at DragonAuthors.com.

The story begins in Egypt, where Alexander the Great’s tomb has been opened, then moves ahead 7 years to present day America, where the students are about to undergo a new standardized test. The plot itself definitely kept me guessing. I have to admit, I had no idea which direction the story would head. Which was rather refreshing. Yes, it was a book about a group of kids finding their secret powers and banding together to battle the forces of darkness. Yet it was still a refreshingly original story-line. There was so many predictable ways the plot could have gone, yet I could not predict the outcome. I had several “OMG I didn’t see THAT coming’ moments, which I absolutely love. The story just flowed seamlessly, and the pacing and tension was right on point. Plus I just love Erin and Steven’s writing style!
Each character is uniquely different and I love them ALL! But, I would have to say Rush is my favorite. Surprise! I loved the moody brooding guy! I dunno why, I just tend to always have a thing for the grumpy ones. He is the only one of the six, who REALLY does not want to be there, but with his Pro gaming career depending on him participating in the secret summer program, he attends under sufferance. But, as is the way, things happen, and Rush is forced to make some tough choices along the way and becomes more than the moody gamer kid by books end.
One of the things I loved seeing was all these vastly different kids, from completely different backgrounds become a tight knit group of friends. Some of my favorite scenes are when they are all just hanging out, getting to know each other and giving each other nicknames. And the way Rush and Roman bonded in such a brotherly way made me smile so, so much.
I could not put this book down once I started. Work commitments prevented me from getting much reading done, but once I finally got to it, I read the almost whole thing in a day!
I will be definitely be hoping for more books in this series. I definitely recommend having a read.
