Du Prau (2010) proposes that " Hundreds of years ago the city of Ember was created by the builders contain everything needed for human survival. It worked but now storerooms are almost out of food, crops are blighted, corruption is spreading through the city, and worst of all lights are failing. Soon Ember could be engulfed by darkness. But when two children Lina and Doon discover fragments of an ancient parchment they begin to wonder if there could be a way out of Ember. ( Du Prau, 2010)
