Ambition will fuel him.


will drive him.

But power has its price.

It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth

annual Hunger Games.

In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing

for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty

house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the

slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit,

and outmaneuvre his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.

The odds are against him.

He's been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female

tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates

are now completely intertwined - every choice Coriolanus makes could

lead to favour or failure, triumph or ruin.

Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the

arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute... and must

weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive

no matter what it takes.

Three books, four films and one worldwide phenomenon, The

Hunger Games original trilogy changed the face of global YA.
