It’s time for the second book of the trilogy, The People of Sparks. The denizens of Ember have emerged into a post apocalyptic society that only begrudgingly takes them in. As is to be expected, we have a good time ribbing both our great characters like Lina and our insufferable ones too like Torren. There is a brewing conflict between the Emberites and the people of Sparks. Charles and Asia have suggestions as to how conflict should be avoided, but will that advice be heeded? Lina goes off on an adventure and Doon becomes an on-again off-again member of the Tick fan club. But are either decisions good ones?
Next week we will be reading chapters 16-29 of book 2 in the series, The People of Sparks.
