In book 3 of this trilogy, 17 year old Katniss is again neck deep in trouble, danger, political intrigue and an ever increasingly public love triangle. She is also the figurehead of a rebellion as the 13 districts revolt against the powerful Capitol and a key figure in rallying support.
Katniss is vulnerable but strong when needed, reckless when facing danger but overly protective where her family is concerned. She again proves herself to be the ultimate survivor, but she also remains a realistic character by making rash decisions which are sometimes not necessarily the right choice. Aware of her circumstances, the reader can fully understand her reasoning even if some of Katniss' decisions may be wrong. The story line wows throughout and is particularly poignant in places, as several personal tragedies affect Katniss and those she is emotionally involved with. Fast paced and imaginative with a truly memorable heroine, "Mockingjay" is a fitting finale to an enthralling and remarkable trilogy, whilst its short epilogue will leave fans feeling fully satisfied with the ending.
