This book is exactly what it needed to be following up a great book like "The City of Ember". It has the drama you need for a good fiction book, and most people can definitely relate to this book. This book shows relatable scenes about how people are different and how they can fight about their differences. The author nailed the new and old characters, and the book has a satisfying ending. The book was great. You should read it.
This book starts off after the two main characters in The City of Ember escaped Ember and got to the surface. I really liked this book because it had new and original characters that were really easy to like/dislike. This book also has drama and from what the back of the book spoke about, "the war". This book is full of drama, action, and adventure and I really liked it. I would definitely recommend this for someone that likes those types of things, or if you read the first book.
