Coming May 2020: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

The tenth annual Hunger Games will begin on the morning of the reaping. Coriolanus Snow, eighteen, is preparing in the Capitol for his one chance at glory as a mentor in the Games.

The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, and its fate is dependent on Coriolanus’ ability to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students in order to mentor the winning tribute.

The odds are stacked against him. He’s been assigned the humiliating task of mentoring District 12’s female tribute, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now inextricably linked; every decision Coriolanus makes could result in favor, failure, triumph, or ruin.

It will be a fight to the death inside the arena. Outside the stadium, Coriolanus begins to feel sympathy for his doomed tribute… and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive at any cost.
