“Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you...no one.”Those were some of Rhode’s last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste. Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.I never expected to fall in love with someone else who wasn’t Rhode. But Justin was...daring. Exciting. More beautiful that I could dream. I never expected to be sixteen again...but then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me.

District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans--except Katniss.The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss’s willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem.

And why is Doug--of all people--suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them?
