ZEGLER, VIOLA DAVIS and PETER DINKLAGE. ‘The Ballad of Songbirds

and Snakes is the best Hunger Games movie of them all’ USA TODAY

‘Everything you would expect from Collins is

here: fraught teenage love; plenty of violence… the themes of friendship,

betrayal, authority and oppression will please and thrill’

The Guardian

‘It works beautifully… please don’t

make us wait another decade’ The Times

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 changed the face of global YA.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was a global number

one hit in hardback.
