Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's been a decade since the Capitol overcame an uprising and instituted the bloody Hunger Games as punishment. Some families, like the Snows, lost much in the war. Coriolanus, 18, hides his poverty with charm and fights for acclaim in school, hoping success will restore the Snows to their former glory. Mentoring a tribute in the tenth Hunger Games is the chance he's been waiting for, though Lucy Gray Baird, the tribute he's assigned, is from the unimpressive District 12. And this is not Katniss Everdeen's well-oiled Hunger Games. The event is brutish, short, and unpopular even with Capitol citizens. It's up to Coriolanus--and perhaps his tribute, a magnetic, natural performer who might exceed his wildest dreams--to make it, and themselves, into something more. Collins maintains a safe third-person distance from her protagonist, who is not yet the Machiavellian leader he will become. Less action driven, and in many ways less adroit, than The Hunger Games (2008) and its successors, this is an overtly philosophical examination of war, its aftermath, and the depths of human darkness. But readers fascinated by the world and hungry for more detail will forgive this prequel its heft, and secondary characters more compelling than the hero help to give it wings.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: There hasn't been a release quite this buzzy since, well, the last Hunger Games book (Mockingjay, 2010). Whatever your thoughts on Snow may be, people will want this book. Order up."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Collins continues her unflinching exploration of power and morality in this prequel set 64 years prior to the events of the Hunger Games trilogy. In a challenging move that considers the journey from complicity to what lies beyond, the story centers on Coriolanus Snow, archvillain of the Katniss Everdeen era. Obsessed with restoring his family's grandeur and securing a rosy future for himself, the 18-year-old Academy student is selected to mentor a competitor in Panem's 10th Hunger Games. Though Snow feels slighted by his assignation, a tribute from lowly District 12, his mentee, songstress Lucy Gray Baird, shows an audacity and showbiz flair that captures the country's attention. Over the course of the Games--a relatively low-tech affair set in the war-scarred Capitol's crumbling arena--the two begin a close partnership. While Snow experiences moments of doubt about his participation, his ambition draws the attention of the sinister Head Gamemaker, Dr. Volumnia Gaul. Providing a counterpoint to Snow is classmate Sejanus Plinth, wealthy and compassionate, who must mentor a tribute from a district he still views as home. A gripping mix of whipsaw plot twists and propulsive writing make this story's complex issues--vulnerability and abuse, personal responsibility, and institutionalized power dynamics--vivid and personal. Ages 12--up. Agent: Rosemary Stimola, Stimola Literary Studio. (May)"
