The Dark Days Novellas by Ginger Gelsheimer and Taylor Anderson

The Dark Days novellas are intertwined with the story of Hunger Games. I purchased them because it tells what may have caused the formation of the 13 districts and Game 1. There are three novellas, End of the World, Dorian Lennox, and The Others, and take place within a matter or days/weeks.

End of the World starts with Claudia flying to Denver to see her brothers wedding. Everyone knows the world is ending, and asteroid is currently hurling towards Earth, and so many people are being a bit irrational, like getting married even though you're all about to die.

Together, with the help of the Wicked Witches, the flying monkey's, and other Ozians...Ozites?...Dorothy and Glenda's evil rule comes to and end and peace is restored to Oz. Amy is then forced with the unfair decision of staying in Oz but never returning to Kansas, or returning home and never seeing any of her new friends, including Nox, again. Of course, when you have magic from Oz, nothing is forever.

Paige has a writing style that really pulls you in and makes you feel like you're right there in …
