The city of Ember is surrounded by an inky darkness that is only relieved by the many electric lights. The city's inhabitants have lived comfortably for hundreds of years on vast storehouses of food, but now something is wrong. The great lamps that light the city are beginning to flicker, and the storehouses are almost empty.
When Lina finds part of an ancient message, she is sure it holds a secret that will save the city. She and her friend Doon must decipher the message before the lights go out on Ember forever!
