So if you haven’t read The Book of Ember series it’s a must read! I loved the first book and now the second book is my favorite so far! Again we follow along with Lina and Dune and most of the other Emberites. They come across a city called Sparks. There they find that the people are friendly and charitable. However, the help soon turns into distrust and it’s up to Lina and Dune to set things right.
“It is green here and very big. Light comes from the sky…”
When Lina and Doon lead their people up from the underground city of Ember, they discover a surface world of color and life. The people of a small village called Sparks agree to help the Emberites, but the villagers have never had to share their world before. Soon differences between the two groups escalate, and it’s up to Lina and Doon to find a way to avoid war!
In the riveting sequel to the highly acclaimed The City of Ember, Jeanne DuPrau explores the nature of conflict and the strength and courage necessary to overcome it.
