Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins
Katniss Everdeen has been rescued by District 13 and is the face of the rebellion against the Capitol. But President Snow has Peeta and will use every tactic he can to destroy Katniss’ will and destroy the rebellion. And Katniss isn’t safe even within the new government of District 13. The president of District 13 feels threatened by Katniss and her popularity. Once again, Katniss faces insurmountable danger. But the effects of this war will be on the global scale.
This is the third and final book in Collins’ fantastic trilogy. Her post-apocalyptic world is bleak yet stirring. Her storytelling is completely engrossing and impossible to put down. Usually, I can’t get into books written in present tense. But not only do I not mind her writing style, but after a while I don’t even notice that it’s present tense. As before, the adventure is non-stop suspense and drama. Ending in a climactic showdown with several surprises along the way, readers will be satisfied with the conclusion. I wasn’t left wanting. It’s a whirlwind of hope, despair, grief, and triumph. A story of epic proportions, I can’t recommend this trilogy enough.
