** SPOILER ALERT **
In this book, Katniss and Peeta are forced into the arena once again. However since winning the Hunger Games, President Snow is worried that the support for Katniss will spark a revolution in the districts. The Capitol plans a new Hunger Game where the past winners fight to the end. Strangely in this story, the other tributes seem to be willing to risk it all, including their lives to save both Peeta and Katniss. The book ends with a need that made me immediately pick up the Mocking Jay and start IT.
This book is replete with killing and description of gore. I did enjoy the book and recommend it if you have already invested the time on Hunger Games to continue as the second and third movie will surely happen very soon based on the first one's incredible success.
