Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.
Katniss and Peeta’s unprecedented co-victory in the 74th Hunger Games stirs an uprising. President Snow visits Katniss to threaten the lives of everyone she knows and holds dear if she doesn’t do all she can to toe the line and quell the unrest. As her best efforts fail, Plutarch Heavensbee (a former games-master, now returned) meets with Snow to implement a Quarter Quell, by which to gather all former Hunger Game victors and have them eliminate each other. Katniss and Peeta end up in the Quarter Quell but must form alliances in order to survive; however, those with whom Katniss prefers to ally herself seem to be for emotional rather than tactical reasons.
After defying the Capitol on national television, Katniss has to attempt to control an uprising stirring in the districts. When President Snow puts her family and friends in jeopardy Katniss knows she has no choice but to follow Snow’s orders. Then he turns Katniss and Peeta’s world upside by throwing them back into the arena and there will only be one winner. Katniss plans to sacrifice her own life to save Peeta’s.
After narrowly escaping the 74th Hunger Games, Peeta and Katniss are chosen once again to compete in the Hunger Games, this time in the Quarter Quell–the 25th annual Games. With the arena something of a big clock, they must befriend the right people in order to once again survive the Hunger Games.
