The end of the trilogy
Like all books in The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay consists of three parts. In this third audiobook they are called The Ashes, The Assault and The Assassin. Ashes is a reference to District 12, where the story is picked up. After the destructive fire in this District, now there are just ashes left. Almost everything is gone, but when Katniss inspects the damage in her District with her own eyes, she does manage to retrieve some things. She takes Prims cat Buttercup, a photo of her mothers wedding, and her fathers jacket.
The survivors from District 12 now reside in District 13, and Katniss joins them there. It soons becomes clear that they want Katniss to become a key figure in the revolution. They want to present her to the people as “the Mockingjay”. This bird, which is a mixture of a Jabberjay and a Mockingbird, has become the symbol of hope and resistance in the battle versus the Capitol.
Katniss wants to help, but she has some personal demands for President Coin, who is the leader of District 13 and the rebellion. Katniss wants immunity for Peeta and the other tributes, and she wants permission to kill president Snow herself. President Coin agrees with her proposal, and so Katniss officially becomes the Mockingjay.
As Katniss takes up her role as rebel leader, Peeta is still a hostage of the Capitol. Although he has officially been declared the winner of the 75th annual Hunger Games, he is being brainwashed and tortured by the Capitol. They mean to use him as a weapon against the revolution.
While Katniss and the rebellion begin their quest for the freedom of Panem and the death of president Snow, they must fear for the allegiance and life of Peeta. And so begins the worst game any of them will ever have to play…

About the Mockingjay
The Mockingjay from the title is a fictional bird. It is a mixture of the Jabberjay and the Mockingbird. The Jabberjays were released into the wild by the Capitol, with the expectance that they would become extinct. But the Jabberjays were resilient, and began to breed with the Mockingbirds. Against the intention of The Capitol, a stronger bird was created. Because of this, the rebellion chose the Mockingjay as a symbol of hope and resistance against the Capitol.
The Mockingjay has excellent mimics, and has the ability to memorize and repeat human songs. Katniss wore a pin with this bird when she fought in The Hunger Games in the first book. In the third book, she takes on the role of Mockingjay for the rebellion in their battle against the Capitol. The Mockinjay and the pin that Katniss wears are used in The Hunger Games logo and on book covers.
