In The Diamond of Darkhold, the fourth in the books of Ember series, Lina and Doon find a ruined book that they believe points to something meant for the citizens of Ember. Both looking for some adventure, they decide to return to Ember and see if this something can be found.
I thought this book was really lacking in the excitement and good plot that were really only found in the first book (see reviews for the first three books). While parts of it are interesting and entertaining, it really doesn't seem to have the same quality as the first one.
May have some parts scarier for younger children.
Overall rating: ***
