Praise

“…enough action to please Hunger Games fans and leaves enough questions tantalizingly unanswered for readers to be desperate for the next installment.”—School Library Journal (starred review)

“Collins has done that rare thing. She has written a sequel that improves upon the first book.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The New York Times

“Collins ratchets up the tension in the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. With a host of well-drawn new secondary characters and more lives on the line, this will keep readers of all ages up long past their bedtimes.”—Romantic Times Book Reviews

“Collins has once again delivered a page-turning blend of plot and character with an inventive setting and provocative themes.”
The Horn Book Magazine
