We All Burn

Fire is catching. If we burn, you burn.
-Katniss in "Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins

As I plowed through the second two books in the trilogy, the similarities with my story vanish and instead I'm reminded by another series (or actually a pair of series) I fell in love with a few years ago by Sharon Green: The Blending and the Blending Enthroned. However, Catching Fire and Mockingjay have characters living in a science fiction world with no super or magical powers, only the strengths of their personalities to keep them alive. Sharon Green's characters live in a fantasy-based world where many characters have elemental-based powers.

Still if you've read one and not the other, I recommend it if you're looking for more material along the same basic storyline.
