Vega Jane was always told no one could leave the town of Wormwood. She was told there was nothing outside but the Quag, a wilderness filled with danger and death. And she believed it - until the night she stumbled across a secret that proved that everything she knew was a lie. Now just one thing stands between Vega Jane and freedom - the Quag. In order to leave Wormwood and discover the truth about her world, Vega and her best friend, Delph, must find a way to make it across a terrifying land of bloodthirsty creatures and sinister magic. But the Quag is worse than Vega Jane's darkest imagining. It's a living, breathing prison designed to keep enemies out and the villagers of Wormwood in. The Quag will throw everything at Vega Jane. It will try to break her. It will try to kill her. And survival might come at a price not even Vega Jane is willing to pay.
Master storyteller David Baldacci unleashes a hurricane of action and adrenaline that takes listeners to the breaking point.

Looking forward to book 3
The Vega Jane books are a great new series from David Baldacci. Breaking from his usual thriller stories about bad ass heroes hunting government corruption and terrorists, David Baldacci has created a whole new world about a people called Wogs. The Wogs live in a mystical land where magic is real and monsters prowl. Vega Jane is our our heroine, her best friend Delph is a giant of a man, and her dog Harry 2 is loyal beyond measure. Together they must conquer the Quag, a mystical forest surrounding Wormwood. In this story we learn how the Quag came to be and why.
The book ended leaving me wanting more so I hope it doesn't take too long for book 3 to come out :)!
If you like fantasy books such as Lord of The Rings, Chronicles Of Narnia, and the movie The Village by M. Night Shyamalan then you will like this book!
Fiona Hardingham did a great job reading this fantasy tale and gave it a nice British flare.
Overall I enjoyed this story and will read book 3 but it was not quite as good at the first book in the series. I have high hopes for book 3 as David Baldacci is one of my all time favorite authors :)

Why change readers?
Excellent book and well read, but it does not make sense to start a book in a series with 1 Reader and then switch to a new reader for the second book, especially when the book is written in first person from the perspective of the main character in the book. Vaga Jane was one person in the first book and almost someone else in the second book because the reader was different, thus the tone was different. This should never happen in a series!
