The People of Sparks picks up where The City of Ember leaves off. Lina and Doon have emerged from the underground city to the exciting new world above, and it isn’t long before they are followed by the other inhabitants of Ember. The Emberites soon come across a town where they are welcomed, fed, and given places to sleep. But the town’s resources are limited and it isn’t long before resentment begins to grow between the two groups. When anonymous acts of vandalism push them toward violence, it’s up to Lina and Doon to discover who’s behind the vandalism and why, before it’s too late.

    " The first book near bored me but it caught my interest enough to read book two. So glad I did! The people of Ember are given a new problem....no longer worried of the lights going out they must now figure out how to live in a world scarred by horrible tragedies. They must relearn everything all the while trying to make friends with the town that took them in. Doon and Lina are quite the two little heroes and learning what the see and discover is fascinating. Nit makes one realize what we take for granted today. Never say I'll take care of it tomorrow because one day the tomorrow that comes may not be the tomorrow you know. "

    " The second book of the Ember series picks up where the first left off. Now finally outside the city Doon and Lina find a settlement of people who are reluctant to take in the people of ember but do so anyway. Tensions begin to rise as accussations are made about the people of Ember. Food begins to dwindle and it seems as if the town of Sparks will fall into chaos. "

    " Wow, I was kind of blown away by this book. I would love to at least read this book with my class some day, if not write a whole unit on it. It could definitely be used with younger readers (I'm thinking fourth or fifth grade) because the heavy themes are right out there in the open. I was a tad frustrated as an adult reading it because there is no subtlety whatsoever, but it would really work with children I think. War, poverty, decision-making, right and wrong, etc. could be taught using this book. It's more powerful than its prequel, The City of Ember. I've got the third one on hold at the library and I am looking forward to reading it. "
