Ok, so, Catching Fire picks up with Katniss and Peeta back in District 12. They are living in the Victor's Village, and just trying to live their lives as the Star-Crossed lovers still, to the best of their ability, when it's time for the Victor's Tour. They are going to tour all the districts, and show the country how wonderfully in love they are... and they better, because President Snow has come to see Katniss, and threaten everyone she knows and loves if she doesn't.

SPOILER WARNING!!!

Well, Peeta ends up doing a public proposal, and he and Katniss are still majorly playing up the Star-Crossed lovers bit, but President Snow says it's not enough. And then the time comes for the Quarter Quell. And the shocker? The reaping is going to come from the districts' previous victors. Katniss is going to have to go back into the arena.

SPOILER OVER!

The rest of the book really covers what happens in the games, and I can't give too much away without a horribly massive massive spoiler fest. So, I'll leave it like this: The country is in major unrest, and not happy with this Quarter Quell games. What is going to happen? Will the country Catch Fire? Will the rebellion happen? And what about Peeta and Katniss? Will they get their Happily Ever After? I guess I'm just going to have to read Mockingjay and find out...

This continues the story of The Hunger Games. It begins and digs in where the other book left off. I found it convenient to have all the books at hand to read, one after another. I didn't need to refresh my memory, nor does the book feed into that, but it was a good stand alone story just as well.
