A prequel to the modern-day classic The City of Ember. This highly acclaimed adventure series has captivated kids and teachers alike for almost fifteen years and has sold over 3.5 MILLION copies! Nickie will grow up to be one of the first citizens of the city of Ember. But for now, she’s an eleven-year-old girl whose father was sent away on some mysterious government project. So when the opportunity to move presents itself, Nickie seizes it. But her new town of Yonwood, North Carolina, isn’t what she’d anticipated. It’s a place full of suspicion and mistrust, where one person’s visions of fire and destruction have turned the town’s citizens against each other. Nickie explores the oddities around her—her great-grandfather’s peculiar journals, 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. Or is it already too late to avoid a devastating war? Praise for the City of Ember books: Nominated to 28 State Award Lists!

Every revolution begins with a spark. In a world torn apart by war, one nation remains standing—Cinder City. It is surrounded by three state rings—Fringe, Boundary and Limits—and run by the Authority, President Atlas Gold, the tyrannical leader of the golden city. The population is divided into two groups, the rich and the poor, the Solvents and the Insolvents, and controlled under the threat of being named an Ember—a death sentence. Each year, Cinder officials open their Golden Gates and hold the Ember Harvest of all eighteen-year-olds. The Harvest is a test of the potential Embers. It is said that over three hundred years ago, the Insolvents had grown tired of their treatment and had mastered innate abilities to help them wage war against Cinder City. Now, as a precaution, every child is tested for the Scoria Singularity, remnants of the genetics from a time the world had been almost destroyed overnight, for the Authority would never risk another war. He would remove the sparks—the Embers—before they started another revolution. For Ezra, an Irish Chippewa—the last of the Chippewa people and recently named a potential Ember sent to Ember Gates—survival is in her blood. As the Ember Gates transforms her and the others, Ezra must determine who her real allies are, what parts of herself she is willing to sacrifice and where her newfound love fits into the cruel world of Ember Gates. Ezra will be pushed to the limits, having to decide between her humanity and staying.
