It’s fifty years before the settlement of the city of Ember, and the world is in crisis. War looms on the horizon as eleven-year-old Nickie and her aunt travel to the small town of Yonwood, North Carolina. There, one of the town’s respected citizens has had a terrible vision of fire and destruction. Her garbled words are taken as prophetic instruction on how to avoid the coming disaster. If only they can be interpreted correctly. . . .

As the people of Yonwood scramble to make sense of the woman’s mysterious utterances, Nickie explores the oddities she finds around town—her great-grandfather’s peculiar journals and papers, a reclusive neighbor who studies the heavens, a strange boy who is fascinated with snakes—all while keeping an eye out for ways to help the world. Is this vision her chance? Or is it already too late to avoid a devastating war?

In this prequel to the acclaimed The City of Ember and The People of Sparks, Jeanne DuPrau investigates how, in a world that seems out of control, hope and comfort can be found in the strangest of places.

    " okay story on its own, but it had very little to tie it into the other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 5/21/2011

    " Not anywhere near as good as the first two Ember books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hollijo | 5/20/2011

    " Average. Not the best of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K.Q. Webster | 5/12/2011

    " It isn't until the very end that you find out why this book has anything to do with the City of Ember series but it is a very interesting book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 5/12/2011

    " I'm not sure what to think of this book. I think I'm still processing. Kind of a pseudo religious fanaticism book- kinda unrelated with the rest of the Ember series. I was kind of disappointed with this book. Oh well--on to the last of the Ember series I go! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 5/11/2011

    " Nothing much of import in this story with just a unsatisfying link to the first book on the last page. Outside the series I wouldn't recommend the story as a stand alone, nicely written but I expected more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/30/2011

    " Meh. When it started I was way more into it than the first two in this series...buuuuuuut that totally petered out by the end. Just...meh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Verity | 4/29/2011

    " I don't know. This kind of came out of the blue. Not a bad book, but just not really great either. You don't even realize why it's connected to the other books until the very, very end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Trena | 4/28/2011

    " I didn't enjoy this book at all. It had very little to do with the story of The City of Ember. "
