• ° *✸࿐      ROMAN MYLES WAS NOTHING SPECIAL. He was a simple butcher's boy, having grown up his entire life in District 10 raising livestock with his mother―only to kill them with his father for little profit. Despite wanting more to life than the slaughter of animals, it seemed being a butcher was to be his livelihood before he was ever conceived eighteen years prior. There were never any ifs, ands, or buts when it came to the future of Roman Myles. Until now.

      The dreaded reaping of the 72nd Annual Hunger Games has come. Citizens of Panem everywhere are preparing, waiting for the moment when one boy and one girl from each of the twelve districts is chosen to compete in a battle to the death, until only one remains. The Myles family has always been lucky with reapings, for never has there been a Myles in the Games. But luck has finally run out. Now, a simple butcher's boy has become the lamb to the slaughter, awaiting the knife to slice his throat.

      Roman's fear and uncertainty has never been greater, but with his fellow District 10 tribute at his side, neither has his heart ever been heavier. In his fight for survival, Roman may just come to realize that no one's destiny is ever set in stone.
