Alcatraz versus The Scrivener's Bones

Alcatraz versus The Scrivener's Bones by Brandon Sanderson

Alcatraz Smedry is back!!! For those of you who read my post on Alcatraz versus The Evil Librarians, you know what a huge Alcatraz Smedry fan I am and how I have stated that this is one of the best books I have ever read, well the sequel to this awesome book did not disappoint.

Picking up a few months after the last book left off, Alcatraz continues his autobiography (published here in the Hushlands as a work of fiction by the author Brandon Sanderson because somebody needs to take the fall if the librarians find out). Alcatraz is without his beloved Grandpa Smedry, who has traveled to the library of Alexandria to fin Alcatraz's father. Alcatraz being a good grandson heads off with a band of relatives and friends to rescue his grandfather from the perilous clutches of a new form of librarian (soul sucking curators), while also being chased by a yet another form of librarian, Scrivener's Bones.

On his side, Alcatraz has flying glass dragon piloted by his cousin Australia (sister to the last book's Sing), his friend and former protector Bastille, Bastille's mother (a knight), and his uncle. Once again, Alcatraz and his group get into some wild and hilarious adventures in a library. This book will leave readers impatiently waiting for the next installment.

I recommend this book to everyone!!
