It’s been several months since Lina and Doon escaped the dying city of Ember and, along with the rest of their people, joined the town of Sparks. Now, struggling through the harsh winter aboveground, they find an unusual book. Torn up and missing most of its pages, it alludes to a mysterious device from before the Disaster, which they believe is still in Ember. Together, Lina and Doon must go back underground to retrieve what was lost and bring light to a dark world.

    " This was the final installation of the Ember series, and while it was not as good as the original book (City of Ember), it was also not as bad as the third book (Prophet of Yonwood). This book just didn't have the same magical quality that the original story had, so I wasn't enthralled. Overall, satisfying end to the series but not great literature. "

    " This was a good ending to this series. I like these characters and it's nice to see them come full circle. "

    " I love this book series, a nice young adult series that made a pretty good story. I think there were way more places to go with it, I don't like how she just wrote in some epilogues without leaving herself room for more of the story but I'm assuming she was just done with Lina and Doon. Too bad, I liked them. "

    " This was pretty good. It's the fourth in a series. I loved the first one. The second 2 not so much. This is in-between. The same kids as in the first book, after emerging from the underground city, find some technology left for them and have to figure out how it works. "
