The City of Ember by Jeanne Duprau is the first novel in a series set in a post-apocalyptic, subterranean city called Ember. It had been built to allow its inhabitants to survive for at least years, but now is crumbling and decaying. In the novel, we follow two protagonists, Lina Mayfleet, and Doon Harrow as they attempt to escape the city by following clues left behind by the original builders. The novel was adapted into a film in directed by Gil Kenan. Their plan is for the city to last at least years to avoid the populace succumbing to a disastrous event. In addition to building the city, they provide the mayor of the city with a locked box that supposedly contains instructions for the inhabitants. He dies and is unable to return the box to where it belongs or inform anyone of its importance.
