The reviews I have read so far are simply unfair.

I thought it was a great departure for Baldacci and my only complaint is it ended without and ending. I hope that is because Baldacci intends for it to be a trilogy.

Together they must conquer the Quag, a mystical forest surrounding Wormwood. In this story we learn how the Quag came to be and why.
The book ended leaving me wanting more so I hope it doesn't take too long for book 3 to come out :)!
If you like fantasy books such as Lord of The Rings, Chronicles Of Narnia, and the movie The Village by M. Night Shyamalan then you will like this book!

Overall I enjoyed this story and will read book 3 but it was not quite as good at the first book in the series. I have high hopes for book 3 as David Baldacci is one of my all time favorite authors :)
