Staff Reviews

From heart-pounding adrenaline rushes to heart-wrenching personal choices, Catching Fire is a worthy sequel to The Hunger Games. Set in a dystopian world, every year each district must choose two young competitors for the games. Their lives hang in the balance and only skill and luck will allow one person to live. After surviving last year's competition, our heroine Katniss just wants to be left alone, but events soon prove that this year might be harder than she could ever imagine.

The second book in Suzanne Collins's phenomenal and worldwide bestselling Hunger Games trilogy is now available in trade paperback.

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