This book was ok. I didn't enjoy it as much as other King books. When it got the end I just wanted it to be over. It got annoying for me. The beginning and middle were good because you feel sorry for the characters and want everything to be ok. Towards the end I just didn't care anymore.

Innocence and beauty unite with evil and terror...
First, a man and woman are subjects of a top-secret government experiment designed to produce extraordinary psychic powers.
Then they are married and have a child. A daugther.
Early on the daugther shows signs of a wild and horrifying force growing within her. Desperately, her parents try to train her to keep that force in check, to "act normal". Now the government wants the brainchild back-- for its own insane ends.
