Synopsis ( via Goodreads )
Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.

This book was just wow. The ending left me with so many questions that weren't answerable. I really hope that Suzanne Collins goes farther with this trilogy. This book (and the other two in the trilogy) was really well written. Katniss is one that you don't know if you like her or don't. Some of the desicions that she makes aren't the best but it sure makes the story good. What really made me mad about this book was that some of my favorite characters were killed off. Finnick made me fume. He had to be one of my absolute favorite characters. And I sure didn't expect Gale or Prim. This series a must read! If you don't your loss. Just know that you're missing out on one of the best trilogies out there.The series is just so good that the second I figured out when this was to be released, I pre-ordered it. It was the LONGEST wait and it killed no being able to have it right there to read. But don't take my word for it. Read it!

My thoughts on the cover:
The cover goes well with the book although you can't exactly call it pretty.
