DIVIDED BETWEEN LOVE AND LOYALTY.
ESNARED BY TRECHERY.
ALL THAT YOU KNOW IS ABOUT TO CHANGE.
The war rages on as Panem is overtaken by revolution. But those within the Capitol's highest circles barely take notice in it's presence, let alone feel the pressing effects. Seventeen-year-old Alithia, the wealthy daughter of an important official, alone can't help feeling something amiss amidst all the fabulous parties and glorious galas.
Then, a chance meeting with the handsome boy victor turned prisoner, Peeta Mellark, forces Alithia to rethink everything she has been raised to believe about her beloved nation. She begins to realize the depth of the vast devastation that the Capitol's power has not only wrought, but concealed behind a carefully placed façade. Determined to discover the truth, Alithia immerses herself in a dark world of secrecy and deception that lurks beneath the cities very foundations she, or anyone else, never dreamed existed.
The deeper Alithia ventures, the more she puts herself and those she loves in danger. Threatened by the severe judgment of the Capitol, she is determined to protect them – at any personal cost. But with treason, imprisonment, and execution hanging over her head, will Alithia leave all that she knows behind and risk everything for what she knows in her heart to be right? Or will she be forced back into her place forever?
