Years before becoming the tyrannical president of Panem, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is the last hope for the good name of his declining house: a proud family that fell from grace in the post-war Capitol City. As the 10th edition of the Hunger Games approaches, young Snow fears for his reputation as mentor to Lucy Gray Baird, the tribute girl from the miserable District 12. But when Lucy Gray magnetizes the entire nation of Panem singing with an air of defying the harvest ceremony, Snow realizes he could turn the tide in his favor. Combining their instincts for showmanship and political cunning, Snow and Lucy will aim for survival by starting a race against time that will decide who is the nightingale and who is the snake.
