The Diamond of Darkhold is a little like The City of Ember because you have the protagonists, Doon and Lina, racing to solve yet another mystery for the sake of their city. And they are once again trying to read an old document that has been torn apart. Of course, obstacles always stand in their way.

Everyone in the city of Sparks is hungry and overworked. Sparks is a backward place where candles provide the only light at night, where nothing except food is produced, and where there is no electricity or gasoline. To get what they need, they rely on roamers who scavenge items from old houses abandoned hundreds of years ago. In the midst of all of this, Lina and Doon are trying to find a piece of technology left to them by the Builders for when they emerged from Ember. They hope this technology will help Sparks and make their lives a little less hard.

If you enjoyed the earlier Ember books, you will enjoy this one!

This is the fourth installment of the City of Ember series. I really liked City of Ember, but haven't liked any of the sequel/prequels as much.

Lina, Doon and the Town of Sparks are struggling to survive a harsh winter. Lina and Doon decide to go back to Ember to find leftover food, medicine and a mysterious item the founders thought would be helpful to the emerging people of Ember.
