    Summary

    Brutus sighs and leans back in his chair, rolling his beer bottle in slow circles across the counter. “Remember when ‘duty’ just meant killing people and learning how to smile with a broken arm?” he asks.

    Brutus half-expected to lose his first year in the mentor seat; instead, three years after Emory's win, Brutus gets to watch his Victor lose her tribute -- again, and again, and again.

    Summary

    Growing up in District 2 with the high-ranking Peacekeeper families, Alec joins the Career Program at age seven like his older brother Creed and their friend Selene. Creed and Alec want to make their parents proud: for Creed that means the Arena; for Alec it's becoming a Peacekeeper and never, ever questioning orders. Selene, meanwhile, wants to be the next Enobaria, which is cute at eight and a lot scarier at twelve.

    Alec struggles to fit the Program mold while Creed and Selene flourish, but that just means he has to try harder. The Program's motto is 'Country before Self, Duty before Life', after all, and maybe if Alec works hard enough his father will smile at him the way he does at Creed. Meanwhile the Mockingjay is coming, and Panem is about to go to war ...
