"Sparks are igniting.
Flames are spreading.
And the Capitol wants revenge.
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
In Catching Fire, the second novel in the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before...and surprising readers at every turn."
OMG!!! I loved this so much!!! I loved how everything just keeps going and how the power play is depicted so explicitly! Amazing writing throughout!
I really loved the new characters this sequel brought in! I loved the rest of the Victors, especially Finnick and Johanna! They were all pretty amazing characters!
I loved how deep Everlark has gotten! I'm just soooo Team Peeta! He so deserves Katniss and they're just so perfect for each other! Gale never hits the right vibe with me! I'm never inclined to think that maybe he should end up with Katniss. Never. He's more of the freedom fighter image than a lover.
And I love how Katniss is! I love how she just fights through and perseveres on! I so need more of the Girl on Fire!
And that ending was phenomenal! I loved how Katniss's love towards Peeta was portrayed in that last chapter! I'm so glad that Finnick's alright, but I'm so hoping that Johanna and Peeta are OK!
Can't wait to move on to Book 3!!!
