Blood Debt: The 68th Hunger Games

By TJ_Flynn

Scifi / Action

Prologue

One Day After the Reaping

District 9

Kelly Scott

"Excuse me!" I yell to the shopkeeper. He ignores me, who does he think he is? "Excuse me!" I yell a bit louder. He glances my way, but seems more interested in serving his customers.

"What?" he says sounding somewhat agitated.

"Your T.V. isn't on." I say with a frown.

"So?" He says refilling his customer's drink.

"It is against the rules; you must turn on the television for the recap of the tributes."

"Come on, everyone here is having a good time." He says causally.

"It is illegal. It is Capitol week and therefore against the guidelines to have your television off. I suggest you turn on your T.V. or take down that part of your shop. If you are puzzled I suggest you look at the shop next door. If it's unchanged I'll report you."

The man grunts something about me being a busybody, but he was breaking the rules!

"Happy now?" He says flipping on the T.V. I glue my eyes to the T.V. as they begin showing the tributes' profiles.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Rebecca Weller: Ironwood is an incredibly rich fantasy story with a well built imaginative world. Jacob was a great character, very likable, and you cheer for him as he struggles to restore order to Ironwood. The pacing was decent a good balance of action with plot and character building. There were a few moment...

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

James Lawson: I enjoyed this so much I immediately bought (and read) the sequel from Amazon.ca - and am eagerly awaiting the third installment.Since this is a review and not a synopsis, I'll share my impressions rather than write out a condensed version of the plot.There were enough plot twists and turns to ke...

TheProfezzer: This is an excellent story. The plot covers several decades and at least two generations of good guys fighting the enemy from beyond. I found it hard to put down and read the second book after the first but you should red "the Origin of FORCE" first to keep the story in line. I just could not ...

NRF: This was a very interesting story line, although the author did not go far enough in explaining the war and why some received special powers and some didn't. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's writing.

Jalakins: I loved this story. The characters were very interesting and engaging. The plot was very interesting and I had a hard time when I had to stop reading - just wanted to read it all in one sitting! My only complaint on the story is that sometimes I felt like the storyline jumped from one thing to a ...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.
