Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

I’m in awe of Suzanne Collins. I didn’t know how she could manage to make Catching Fire as good as The Hunger Games, but she did. Katniss and Peeta both made it back from the Games, and are now aware of the repercussions that may come from making President Snow, and the Capitol look weak. Catching Fire is a well thought out, and great continuation of Katniss’s story. Absolutely love it.
