Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district-twelve tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Now there are rumors of rebellion among the districts, and Katniss and Peeta are horrified to discover that they are the faces of that rebellion.
