Lina and Doon's heart-pounding journey to save their people has captivated readers around the world, and the four adventures are bound together here for the very first time! Escape the Dark.

But now with terrifying blackouts sweeping through the streets, Lina and Doon know it’s only a matter of time before the lights go out and never come back on again. When Lina finds part of an ancient message, she and Doon explore long-forgotten parts of their dying city as they race to solve the mystery. If they succeed, they will have to convince everyone to follow them into danger and an exciting new world. But if they fail? The lights will burn out and the darkness will close in forever.

Bright and shy, Ember Gillespie was sent away from her home and her family when she was little. She was raised by strangers in an urban boarding school that didn't resemble her family's rural and hermetic home in any way. Her sister Thalia, always her mother's favorite, got to stay. They never told Ember the dark family secret--why she had to go. When she finally gets home at the age of sixteen, the realization that her family doesn't want her is nearly more than she can bear. Her grandmother has become senile, her mother is manic, and her sister is a brainwashed shadow of who she used to be. Her only refuge from the constant strain in her mother's house comes from a young man who has taken her under his wing, and a dark friendship that seems to have the potential to ignite into romance. The only thing more shocking than her family's rejection is the reason they want her leave. Thalia confesses that the town is inhabited by demons, and that Ember is too weak to fend for herself. Their mother believes that Ember's paramour is particularly dangerous and bent on revenge. Ember knows her mother is crazy. But as she starts losing her memories and waking up to strange notes she's left herself, she begins to believe her mother might also be right.
