Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Vega Jane lives in the village of Wormwood, where life is nasty, brutish, and short. Villagers have been told that there is nothing outside of Wormwood except for the Quag, a foul forest filled with terrifying beasts. No one comes, no one goes, and Wormwood has stayed this way for generations. Until Vega's friend Quentin Herms disappears.
Quentin leaves Vega a secret message hinting that there's a way out of Wormwood and something extraordandinary on the other side. As Vega begins to investigate, she realizes that Wormwood is a village built on dangerous lies. And that powerful people are willing to kill in order to keep it that way. Soon Vega is careening down a path that will either lead straight to the truth...or straight into an early grave.

An original great from Baldacci!

The reviews I have read so far are simply unfair. I suppose if you like the same ol' from every author without their giving any extra creativity or imagination, The Finisher may disappoint you. I thought it was a great departure for Baldacci and my only complaint is it ended without and ending. I hope that is because Baldacci intends for it to be a trilogy. This was a great write and the person who read it did a terrific job particularly with the main characters. This was a well crafted story from beginning to end and the character development was perfect. Although the character development may have taken longer than some may have wanted, I would argue it was necessary. I hope Baldacci writes more of this really creative stuff!!!

Another side of Baldacci

I was totally surprised by this book. It is GREAT and so very un-Baldacci of the past. He shows how good he is as a writer in this fantasy formated book.
