- A Hunger Games Novel
- Written by: Suzanne Collins
- Narrated by: Santino Fontana

It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the 10th annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, 18-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 out charm, outwit, and outmaneuver 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.
good prequel, narration... not so much

I came into this sceptical, I didn’t feel like we needed a Snow prequel book. Boy was I wrong! A fantastic read and even better listen with the great performance by Santino Fontana! I just wish he’d actually been allowed to sing!
