A fine, dark conclusion to The Hunger Games trilogy, full of political intrigue, back-biting, sacrifice and sadness. I won't summarize the plot, as that's been done over and over. Suffice it to say that there's no cop-out, no punches pulled, and you'll be emotionally wrung out by the time you finish this one.

Once again, my only real complaint is that Katniss is never all that likeable and at times she seems pretty dense and spends way too much time in self-pitying introspection. Still, she's a teenage girl, and, well, that's pretty much what they do, even without the tribulations of Hunger Games and civil war.

The resolution of the Peeta/Gale issue was a little surprising. I thought ... Well, that'd be a spoiler now, wouldn't it?

It's an excellent series, one I couldn't put down, and one I highly recommend.
