And the Capitol wants revenge.
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest shes afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that shes not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitols cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they cant prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
