The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will revisit the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games.
Ambition will fuel him.
Competition 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.
