The Diamond of Darkhold (Ember, Book 4) - Jeanne DuPrau Finally done with the series. This final chapter was much better than the one before it, but still lacked the originality of the 1st Book of Ember.

Lina and Doon are back and looking for something to make everyone's lives just a little bit easier in the town of Sparks. They return to the one place they thought they had left forever, the City of Ember.

There are some new characters introduced in book 4. I wonder if I am the only one who thinks the writers for the movie The Krug's was inspired by the irritating Trogg family from Darkhold. Hmmmm....

The best thing I can say about this book is that it provides a satisfying, even if a bit predictable, closure to this story. I would still recommend it for anyone who like to read middle grade books. Go ahead and read the series, but skip Book 3 (totally unnecessary) for your own sanity.
