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, but that 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.… (mais)

David Baldacci is known for his adult novels, but “The Finisher” is the first book in a fantasy series for younger readers. A teenage Wug named Vega Jane lives in a tree and is the main character in the story. No one ever leaves the town of Wormwood, but when a friend goes missing, Vega is curious and cannot stop trying to figure out what happened. She has a map of the Quag, a forbidden forest, and a magical stone to help her.

A 14-year-old girl named Vega Jane lives in a village called Wormwood, where the citizens have been told that the forest surrounding them (the Quag)is full of deadly monsters. When Vega's mentor disappears, leaving behind a secret message, she begins to realize that Wormwood is built on dangerous lies. She is forced into a physical competition, with the strongest males in the village, and has to rely on her wits, her only friend Delph, and her canine, Harry Two. Her intrepid, questioning nature is a threat to the natural order, but allows her to find a number of magical elements. The first half of this 500 page book was horrendously slow, with too much unnecessary detail, but once things got started, it became a hell of a ride. ( )

A fantasy tween book. A very different genre from his usual but it was quite a decnt read even for an adult. ( )

Fantasy is not my thing.
Baldacci made it a good story though. ( )

I listened to this book on CDs from the library in the unabridged version. The book started slowly. The first 2 CDs were not very interesting, but by the third CD i was hooked. The story is in the Fantasy genre, and begins developing slowly with many aspects of the people and the town being hidden, but everything is gradually, very gradually unfolded as the story builds. Baldacci as is his norm, keeps you listening/reading wanting to know what happens next. The central character is a 14 year old girl who finds the world stacked against her. She spends the book learning why and building her confidence to take on those trying to push her down and keep her in her place. Her best friend, her younger brother and those she distrusts all play major roles in the unfolding of the world in the story. This is book 1 in a series. I listen to a lot if audiobooks and this narrator is among the best I've listened to. I highly recommend the book, especially as an audiobook, and i'm looking forward to book 2 which was just released a few weeks ago. There are some aspects of the story about this young woman which may remind you of The Hunger Games. And keep your ears out, there are many unattributed lines from Alice in Wonderland scattered throughout the text. ( )
