The second cover in the trilogy

The second cover in the trilogy

Katniss Everdeen survived the Hunger Games. Now the Capitol wants revenge.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are still alive. Katniss should be relieved, but now there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol – a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.


Catching Fire is the second novel in the Hunger Games trilogy, and it is 6 months on from the end of the 74th Games, Katniss and Peeta embark on their Victory Tour, before the Reading of the Card. Every 25 years is a Quarter Quell (a Games with a special rule to make it even more ‘exciting’) and this year, being the 75th Games, means it’s the 3rd Quarter Quell. The Reaping brings emotions to all the districts, as the unimaginable happens.

These cards were said to be written down 75 years ago, but the rule seems to perfect an answer for someone and it becomes questionable as to whether it is 75 years old.

The second book brings even more tension and excitement to the story, as the unthinkable becomes real. No-one could guess at what the rule is. But that’s what makes the book so gripping, you must find out once you begin reading this book.

Like the first one, Catching Fire is exciting and intriguing, and you grow evermore attached to the characters as you follow them through their lives. In the Hunger Games, anything can happen.

The cover is really simple and silently says a lot about the book. I loved this book because it brought new twists and characters into play.

The film has been released now and is coming out on DVD in the next few months.
