Rating: 5/5

Synopsis (From Goodreads):
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.
Another Awesome Sauce installment of the Hunger Games Trilogy!  I couldn't read this one fast enough...So far this series is one that once you start it it SUCKS YOU IN!  In other words...VERY HARD TO PUT DOWN!  The original cast of characters are back and better than ever. Even the new characters that are added for the Quarter Quell flow nicely with the original "cast".  The storyline is riveting and sucks you in. The harshness and bloodlust of the games are very vivid.  I LOVE this series enough that I've converted a couple of my co-workers into Hunger Games junkies!
NOTE: I kept this review a mini review and pretty vague to keep from giving away anything to anyone who hasn't read this book yet.
