Series: The Books of Ember #2
352 pages, Fantasy
Reviewed by Knight of Narnia
Great read, but some violent content near the end.
PlotIn this sequel to The City of Ember, the people of Ember must find out how to live above ground after Lina Mayfleet and Doon Harrow found the way out of the underground city. They come to a city called Sparks and get along with the citizens for a while, until Doon is accused of throwing tomatoes. Then the friction begins to build.
MoralityFor the most part, the good characters have good morals. One of the Emberites is found to not be truthful later in the book, but the people ridicule him for it.
ViolenceThis book is more violent than The City of Ember. Especially near the end, where the Emberites and the citizens of Sparks are involved in a large battle. There is fire and some killing in this battle.
Drug and Alcohol ContentNone.
Crude or Profane Language or ContentNone that I recall.
ConclusionThe People of Sparks is a very enjoyable read. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I did The City of Ember, but it still has much of the spirit of the first book. You pretty much have to read it if you want to know what happens after The City of Ember.
