Is the Hunger Games an epic trilogy or a waste of paper?? Share yor view.

I think it was a great book, but maybe just another Harry Potter book.

Chosen, my debut novel in the Ancients of Light series, was released August 31st. If any active members (regular contributors) of the Paranormal Addicts & Newbies group would like a complimentary copy, you can message me and I will provide you with a coupon to download it for free on September 8th.

It is currently available on and, and should be distributed to all major eRetailers within the next couple of weeks.

A brief description of the novel and premise of the series is below. I would love some feedback if you decide to read it. Thank you!

In the beginning...there were Vampire.

Man’s fall from grace sparked the birth of the Dark creatures from the underworld. To counter the explicit threat to mankind, divinely-created immortals were brought forth. The Witch encompassed seven Castes of power; their magic was most effective against the nefarious agenda pursued by their enemies. Over the thousands of years of war, members of each breed have been swayed to the calling of the other, leaving neither able to claim ultimate victory in its mission.

This first book in the Ancients of Light series establishes the foundation for the events that have brought the Realm to its current circumstance and sets the stage for last days within the war of Ancients. A primeval Prophecy culminates in this era, bringing final resolution to the eternal battle that has waged between the Vampire and Witch, the Light and the Dark.

The Chosen...
Kaitriana’s gift of magic is unrivaled in the Realm. A feisty beauty and descendant of the most powerful Ancient in existence, her birth was foretold ages before her time. Destined to lead the Realm to peace, as she comes to power she is betrayed by her own kind, destroying her birthright and all hope of delivering the Realm from the sinister shadow of the Ancient Darks.

Lorcan is a heralded champion, a mighty warlord within the Vampire species. He is part of the faction that abandoned their Dark beginnings and found purpose in the Ancient Light, though his breed has long been estranged from the Witch that ally with them in battle. His animosity towards the magical immortals is personal - his traitorous mother was a Queen within their ranks. Having long since severed all ties with his former kin, his existence remains plagued by repercussions of her treachery and a secret that threatens to be his downfall.

An Ancient Prophecy tells that only two in all of creation can banish the Darks and bring peace to the Realm. When Kaitriana miraculously appears seeking his protection, Lorcan will be required to forsake his duty and disregard the dictates of the Ancients to shelter the female. To fulfill her role, Kaitriana must rebuild the alliance between her own species and the Vampire, while inducing her arrogant guardian to confront his true nature. Together they must combat the Ancient Dark and surmount the forces within their own factions that would oppose the Prophecy. Their fates have always been intertwined and only when joined with the strength of the other can they triumph over a blood feud that has shadowed the Light for millennia.

The Hunger Games is not a waste of paper-- although the writing wasn't anything out of the ordinary, and far from great, the concept had a real lesson to teach: the idea that with reality television taking over the country and the government growing more and more controversial, this could be where are our world is headed.

I liked the books, but I don't understand what you said here: "maybe just another Harry Potter book". It wasn't similar to HP in any way, besides maybe the growing fanbase. I don't think anything can measure up to the megafandom that is Harry Potter, though, so it's practically impossible for any series to become "another Harry Potter".

Mimi ❤ I agree with Hunger Games not having good writing. Collins honestly is a lazy writer who needs to work on her ability to sentence structure before tac ...more
