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
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 readers to the breaking point.
