Description

The #1 New York Times bestseller by David Baldacci now includes a never-before-seen chapter, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Finisher, and a special world guide -- for e-readers only! Vega Jane was always told no one could leave the town of Wormwood. She was told there was nothing outside but a forest filled with danger and death. And she always believed it -- until the night she saw Quentin Herms run away. Vega knows Quentin didn't just leave -- he was chased. And he left behind a trail of clues that point to a dark conspiracy at the heart of Wormwood. To follow the clues will attract the attention of influential people willing to kill to keep their secrets. If Vega wants to stay safe, she just needs to keep her head down and her mouth shut. There's only one problem -- Vega Jane never walks away from a fight. Master storyteller David Baldacci introduces an unforgettable heroine who must think fast, hit hard, and defy all odds to uncover the truth. Praise for The Finisher "What happens when an international best-selling crime novelist tries his hand at a youth fantasy? Well, in this case, success." -- BOOKLIST, starred review "Best known for his adult crime novels, Baldacci makes a detour into middle-grade with this wildly fanciful and darkly intriguing tale of a girl forced to fight for her life as she investigates the secrets of her tiny community.” -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "This vividly described tale takes readers to an original fantasy world full of strange creatures, intriguing relationships, and long-lost secrets. Baldacci knows how to deliver thrills." -- Brandon Mull, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Fablehaven series "THE FINISHER is an enchanting romp through a fantastical world worthy of Rowling or Brooks. Baldacci proves that his pen can engage youth as well as adults." – Richard Paul Evans, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Michael Vey series About the Author David Baldacci is the author of twenty-seven books for adults, each of which has become both a national and international bestseller. His astonishing career started with ABSOLUTE POWER, which was adapted into a major motion picture starring Clint Eastwood.

  • It was Interesting!

    I really enjoyed it. I love how Vega Jane was determine and etc. but it was a little difficult to understand while reading. It does have a good plot but I wish I knew more about the Character. All I know is that she has a Grandpa, friend, sick parents, and died dog. It just seems too morbid. It can use some happiness into it not just work and fighting. But if you like mind working books then this book is for you. If you like easy, smooth, and romance types than I don't recommend it.

    I am a great Baldachi fan and throught that this book was going to be long and boring. To my surprise it was excellent and once I was into it, I could not put it down. This story is more along the lines of the Hobit and he does a great job with the characters.
  • Best book

    The story was great but the ending left you hanging. Will there be a second volume or will the reader be left wondering how The crew made out.
  • Not just for kids. A great book.

    I read a lot and found this to be one of the best books that I have ever read. It is not just a young person's book. It is a great story like the Harry Potter series and the Hunger Games. It is exciting and riveting (after you get through the introductory chapters.) You won't put it down, waiting for it all to come together at the end. Then you will be sorry it is over.
  • Wow

    This book is amazing. I would read it over and over again. David Baldacci vividly described the characters and creatures. Vega Jane is my favorite because I can easily relate to her. If you read this book you will be caught in the spiral downward with Vega Jane. You will want to know more every time you turn the page.
  • Love The Finisher

    I read this book for real, in paper, and I think everyone should know how amazing it is. This is the first in a series, but I am still freaking out. I don't handle cliffhangers well; I am very impatient. I think it has got movie potential. By the way, haters, this is a children's book. So...

    At first I didn't think i'd like it. But it grew on me. So I'll probably buy the sequel.
