Catching Fire & Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen returns to her district, hoping for a peaceful future. But Katniss starts to hear rumours of a deadly rebellion against the Capitol. A rebellion that she and Peeta have helped to create. As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless Katniss and Peeta can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. This is the terrifying sequel to The Hunger Games .

Can Katniss Everdeen win the final fight against the Capitol? Against all odds, she's survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she is 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... 

Okay, so I decided to review these two in one ... since I read them one after the other, they tend to blur. I'll admit I had no idea where the 2nd book was going when I started it. And I didn't see the Chapter 12 twist coming.

After the 2nd book I went straight onto the 3rd. Ordinarily I don't do this. Or rather, I don't like to. Because one does end up a little confused about where one book ended and the next began. I think I actually preferred the 3rd book to the 2nd, but I'm glad the series is over. And if you're just starting out. Enjoy the first book, and skip the rest. Way to drag out a story.
