mini obc about the book1

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 Vega and her best friend Delph must find a way to make it across this 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 Wormwood in.

The Quag will throw everything at Vega. It will try to break her. It will try to kill her. And survival might come at a price not even Vega is willing to pay.

The Keeper is book 2 from the Vega Jane series by David Baldacci and is not his usual writing style so please be aware of this before you one-click or buy, that being said it turns out I’m turning into a huge Y/A fan and this book definitely didn’t let me down.

David steps away from his usual thriller style writing to bring us an action packed read of Vega Jane. With twists, turns and some pretty Wild sounding and looking animals on their trail it makes you wounder if Vega, Delph and Harry Two should have ventured into The Quag.

The story flowed so well I actually lost track of time reading, not always a good thing with a baby and night feeds to be had but I just couldn’t put it down! And I love the drawings throughout the book,

especially the map at the front.

Also the guide to Wormwood and beyond was a fab idea…. I’m just glad the likes of Adar’s and Outlier’s are firmly in Baldacci’s books and not of the real world!!
With a great mix of characters, both main and secondry, I felt they each brought their own to the story.

This book has had me reserving book 1 at the library so I can really get into the world of Wormwood and read Vega Jane’s story from the beginning…….. now all we need is book 3!
