The story picks up quite quickly this week as Lina and Doon super sleuth out both the corruption and greed of Ember as well as the egress from the city. This week we once again have to contend with younger characters who are naïve and that does push the book towards a slightly younger reader group, but we do enjoy the narrative of it. Darkness is continuing to fall in Ember, so Lina and Doon have to decide how to proceed. Listen to find out how we felt about the ending of this book, especially in comparison to the last series we read.
Next week we will be reading chapters 1-15 of book 2 in the series, The People of Sparks.
