Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.
If you've read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire there is not doubt you'll devour this book. If you haven't heard of any of these I implore you to start with the first in the trilogy, The Hunger Games. But as for this book, I couldn't wait to see how it all would end. It was a fast read, like all the rest, that seemed to have a lot going on as the author tried to tie everything together. Was I satisfied after turning the last page on one of my favorite trilogies? Not entirely. But, if everything had been exactly the way I wanted it I don't think that would have been "realistic" for this fantasy world either.
