With the 74th Games in the history books, Katniss and Peta set out on a victory tour across Panem with Haymitch and Effie. Despite her best efforts to feign romance with her co-competitor and to keep posttraumatic stress at bay, President Snow fears that Katniss’s defiant nature will incite rebellion, so he takes a tip from new gamemaker Plutarch and launches a Quarter Quell in which past champions, such as the hilariously bitter Johanna and the deceptively arrogant Finnick, will fight to the death. Not all tributes are quite so young, like Mags, a senior citizen who suits up for battle and establishes a touching bond with Finnick. (Description from Amazon.com)
