Catching Fire- the sequel to The Hunger Games
If you are looking for a new book series to follow this is it! I'm a hardcore fan of Harry Potter, Twilight, and many other fantasy series ( http://hubpages.com/hub/Fantastic-Fantasy-Series) and I have to say that this series ranks right up there! The sequel to The Hunger Games is called Catching Fire, and really it is burning up hot! I cannot wait until the third book comes out next year.
In the sequel to The Hunger Games Katniss finds herself back at home in district 12 and everything has changed! (read about The Hunger Games http://hubpages.com/hub/Cathc-on-Fire-With-The-Hunger-Games)As a victor she has new privileges and a life of comfort and wealth, something she had never had before, but life is anything but a bed of roses. Watching her best friend Gale struggle is painful as he refuses to let her help with money. Not only that, her relationship with Peeta is strained to say the least. She also has to prepare for and perform the victory tour around to all the districts and return back to The Capitol. With a visit from the evil President Snow, Katniss learns that her performance in the games has put her and her family in grave danger as the president is not happy with the results. He threatens to destroy everyone she loves if she doesn't act the way The Capitol wishes her to act on the Victor's Tour. As she tours the country she is faced with meeting the families and districts of the other competitors from the games, an aspect that fills her with dread. Nightmares of the games have also begun to relentlessly saturate her nights and haunt her constantly.
Another event that Panem is preparing for is the 75 Hunger Games. Every quarter The Hunger Games is heightened as President Snow adds a dangerous new twist to games in order to "celebrate" and show his dominance over the people of Panem. As a victor Katniss finds herself wondering which child in her district she will have to train next for the onslaught. The suspense only grows as you read Catching Fire. I found myself feeling every range of emotion. I bit my nails to stubble with Katniss as she walked a dangerous rope through the tour and then into even more danger. The book ends with a cliff hanger and me banging my head against the wall as I wait, not very patiently, for the third installment to come out next year. I hope I am rewarded with a midnight release party when the time comes!
