"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
"Vega Jane has stolen my heart. I've read several novels in the last few years with female protagonists and none of them are as amazing as Vega. . . . . Her adventures must be continued. To not do so would be a crime. This is the female protagonist I want my daughters to read and emulate." -- SciFi Pulse
"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

David Baldacci writes terrific mysteries, but the Vega Jane series shows an entirely different imagination, as well as senses of humor and of the macabre. Despite complexities the books are easy to read and very fast paced. You won't be bored.
It is, IOW, the same sort of story you would find in:
The Labors of Hercules
any road picture
The description as just a bunch of dangers overcome is, therefore, quite apt. But this should not be a problem, for it is well-written and she gets "trained up" a bit in the midst of these adventures.
As I have said before, this series is way out of David's previous books. It took me a while to
figure out what some of the characters were about, but eventually I began to understand their
roles in the entire series of events.
Very much like Stephen King's series in which he takes us in a nether world experience,
The difference is I never could understand King's points. I do understand David's.
I look forward to the next installment.

Thank you David for being a writer of such exciting and diverse stories. I am a fan of ALL your books.
This is a sequel to The Finisher, but the Keeper is still a stand-alone novel.
The heroine Vega Jane is only 15 years old, but she is magic. The animals(monsters) in this novel are many and varied, with lots of different abilities. I think Baldacci does a great job of making this an exciting read.
