Lina and Doon are returning to the city of Ember, but what awaits them in the dark? This highly acclaimed adventure series is a modern-day classic--with over 4 MILLION copies sold

When Doon finds a book that hints at an important, long-lost device, it doesn't take much for him to convince Lina to join him for one last adventure in the place they used to call home.
