Baldacci does it again. His book is mesmerizing to the reader, as one keeps reading it and when it's over, you want the sequel. This book rivals the Hunger Games, and has the potential for one or two sequels.
I bought this book a week and a day agi. The first thing that grabbed me was the cover. Then I sampled it. As I was reading the sample I still was confused what the quag was. I then came back and read the description more, I was hooked after that. The Finisher brings you into a secluded town called Wormwood, A town who’s foundation is based upon a Council and skill set. Where years are sessions, and time is light or dark. Wormwood is not your normal town. People are know as Wug or Wugmorts, and some of them are gifted… This story is great for kids and Young Adults…. The Finisher Vwga Jane is the one tell the story….
Shades of "HungerGames". But interesting read and entertaining as well. Scenes & creatures scream for a movie!
