It’s 50 years before the settlement of the city of Ember, and the world is in crisis. War looms on the horizon as 11-year-old Nickie and her aunt travel to the small town of Yonwood, North Carolina. There, one of the town’s respected citizens has had a terrible vision of fire and destruction. Her garbled words are taken as prophetic instruction on how to avoid the coming disaster. If only they can be interpreted correctly. . . .

As the people of Yonwood scramble to make sense of the woman’s mysterious utterances, Nickie explores the oddities she finds around town—her great-grandfather’s peculiar journals and papers, a reclusive neighbor who studies the heavens, a strange boy who is fascinated with snakes—all while keeping an eye out for ways to help the world. Is this vision her chance? Or is it already too late to avoid a devastating war?

In this prequel to the acclaimed The City of Ember and The People of Sparks, Jeanne DuPrau investigates how, in a world that seems out of control, hope and comfort can be found in the strangest of places.

at the start of the book it is like it is a differnt book

This book is not as good as the others

No, it really isn't as good as the others. My favorite one is the first one. The other ones kind of confuse me.

I would like to read this book because the other two I read were pretty good

this book is about a girl who visits a city/town called Yonwood.She finds out someone is in her house with a dog then things happen.

I did this book for a book club and it was amazing. Me and my friend read the whole series in a week because it was so good. It has social issues, great writing and amazing story lines. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science fiction or fantasy.

This is probobly the best book anyone can read ( I think) ! It's about two friends who find their way out of their home, the dying city of Ember. I reccamend this book to everyone who liked to read either Rick Riordan books, J.K Rowling books, and Suzanne Collins books.

This is a really well written prequel to the other books in the City of Ember series. It not only explains how Ember came to be, it also tells a completely different story that eventually leads to the founding of Ember.
