The people of Ember have come to a new world, arriving with hardly more than the clothes on their backs. But the people in the village of Sparks are willing to help them—at least at first.
This new world is strange to the Emberites. Why is it so empty? Why is there no electricity? What is the Disaster the people of Sparks talk of?

A stronger and more intelligent novel than its predecessor. The issues are more concrete, less abstract ("how do we get along" instead of "how do we keep the lights of our strange underground dystopia running?") and the characters are all stronger and more developed.
