The third book in the Ember series was, to me, the weakest. Set an undefined amount of time earlier than the Ember or Sparks books, this one is about Nickie, a young girl who is in town to help clear out her grandmother's house, and becomes involved in what seems like mass hysteria. A woman who had a stoke (maybe???) is being revered as a prophet, and her mutterings are being taken as divine.
It was all a little weird to me, and although I appreciate the 'message'- don't follow blindly, etc., it felt a little overblown and implausible.
The connection between this book and the others is extremely tenuous- it really didn't fit in with the others.
