We start our new series with strong Giver vibes and a return to younger characters. We get to enjoy the mystery of the failing world of Ember as this dark city starts to deteriorate. This book Charles and Asia get to follow two innocent and likable protagonists but they like to run and look at bugs, which obviously we are not about at all. What is happening to the City of Ember and will the people be able to escape the collapse of their city? Also, why is it so dark in Ember?
Next week we will be reading chapters 11-20 of book 1 in the series, The City of Ember.
