#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci as you've never seen him before.Why would Quentin Herms flee into the Quag? There was nothing in the Quag except certain death.Vega Jane has never left the village of Wormwood. But this isn't unusual -- nobody has ever left the village of Wormwood. At least not until Quentin Herms vanishes into the unknown.Vega knows Quentin didn't just leave -- he was chased. And he's left behind a very dangerous trail of clues that only she can decode.The Quag is a dark forest filled with terrifying beasts and bloodthirsty Outliers. But just as deadly are the threats that exist within the walls of Wormwood. It is a place built on lies, where influential people are willing to kill to keep their secrets. Vega is determined to uncover the truth -- but the closer she gets, the more she risks her life.With The Finisher, master storyteller David Baldacci conjures a thrilling, imaginative world where things are as wrong as wrong can be -- and introduces us to an unforgettable heroine who must think fast, look close, and defy all odds in her fight to do what's right.

3.5 The Finisher (Vega Jane #1) - David Baldacci
Baldacci is best known for his adult thrillers, none of which I have read. The Finisher is his first YA fantasy. And if you guessed this was the first of a series, you'd be right. (The second book should be available shortly, if it's not already.) The main character is Vega Jane -- Jane being her la...

3.0 The Finisher
Yet another YA dystopia. Sorry to Baldacci, but can we have some more positive YA?On the other hand, he gets points for not including a pointless love triangle.

Lead character Vega and the other characters that live alongside her in Wormwood really come to life in brilliantly descriptive writing. A tale of fantasy, where strange creatures are the enemy and the inhabitants must obey t...
