Publisher's Summary

Brandon Sanderson won instant acclaim with young listeners for the first volume of his humorous and action-packed Alcatraz series, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians. In his second adventure, Alcatraz has his hands full with a Scrivener’s Bone - a half-human, half-machine assassin - pursuing him. And if that’s not enough, Alcatraz receives word that his father is in mortal danger. Now it’s up to Alcatraz and a quirky band of his relatives to mount a daring rescue.

    "The sequel was also quite good!"

    I like Sanderson, but I did not think he could be as good in YA as he is in his other works. I was wrong - very wrong. If you are like me and did not think he would be as good, believe me, you, too, might be very wrong. Good job Brandon! Keep 'em coming!

    "Best "Biography" Ever!!!"

    This is the most entertaining "biography" I have ever red!

    To those in the hush lands: This fiction is soooo funny and good, Brandon Sanderson is a gifted and a great author, and his fantasy books are big and fat. Alcatraz gets used to his powers and to his abilities, and get introduced to new characters, which most of them are really funny.. Just wait until you get introduced to the "List"!!!

    To the 3 Kingdoms:
    This biography of Alcatraz was an eye opener, you get to know so much about your hero and who he really is, and how he dealt with all those evil librarians..

    P.S. You will laugh a lot... so avoid drinks and food while listening to it... :)

    "Funny, exciting and twisted"
    Any additional comments?

    Brandon Sanderson has become one of my favorite authors since he took on the daunting task of completing the wheel of time series started by Robert Jordan. I haven't read another author with so many different original ideas on the use or sources of magical type powers and abilities. He is a master craftsman in the ways of imagination.

    Ramon de Ocampo does an outstanding job bringing each of the characters to life. The book jumps from drama to commentary and back to drama at every turn, but he handled it expertly.

    "Such a sad ending, cruel cruel world!"

    The ending is heartbreaking. Do not skip to the end of the book too early.

    "Great listen for kids and parents!"
    What does Ramon De Ocampo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    We love each of his character voices. He articulates well and seems to "get" the humor of the author without being over the top. Time flies on long car trips while the whole family listens to Ramon. We've heard the first two books 3 times over. It's time to buy book 3 now! We can't wait!

    "boys loved it"

    We listened to books 1 and 2 in this series on a long summer road trip. boys were laughing, fully engaged and attentive. we had to wait for good stopping points before they would take stretch break. they are 11 years old and love it when the author breaks the 3rd wall.

    "Pretty good book 2 in series"

    I love the adult Sanderson books, and as a librarian (omg!) i HAVE to read this series. This book is a lot the same as the first book, that should be read first. I love that we get to know more about the kingdoms. I dont think the plot in this one is as strong as the first book the reading performance is just awsome.
