#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.

Not a great fan of fantasy normally but had a real problem putting this book down

The world in this book confused me; I feel that the world-building could have been better. Asides from that, it was tedious and I found myself disinterested.

This book has about 80 percent common elements to Suzanne Collins' "Hunger Games". For me this led to a persistent nagging misdirection when reading the book which made it somewhat confusing until I understood about halfway through that the underlying premise is a magic world and not science fiction. I found the start to the book a bit slow and the passages involving magic a bit too mystical for my taste. Still, I found the read engaging even if there was a constant feeling of déjà-vu.

David Baldacci is very good at mature, violent crime novels. Not children's fantasy books. It was well written and good. I can see why a lot of people love this. But this is not the Baldacci I know and love.
