Plot Summary

It is a book about a group of people who live in a city called Ember, which was dying. The people of Ember found a way out of their city and arrived in the world outside, but they had no idea how to survive there. They were helped by a group of people from a nearby town called Sparks.

At first, the people of Sparks welcomed the Emberites and shared their resources with them. But as time went on, the Sparks people became resentful of the Emberites, who they saw as a burden on their resources. Tensions rose between the two groups, and a conflict broke out.

Meanwhile, a young girl named Lina, who had been one of the original Emberites, tried to find a way to resolve the conflict. She discovered a message left by the Builders, the people who had created Ember, which contained instructions for building a machine that could generate electricity. Lina believed that if they could build the machine, they could offer something valuable to the people of Sparks and mend the relationship between the two groups.
