The author of the Mistborn trilogy and Elantris, Brandon Sanderson is winning abundant praise for this rollicking - and unusual - tale.

Breaking things, however, might just be the ace in the hole he needs when he goes up against a cabal of nefarious (gasp!) librarians.
"First, let me say that I am a Sanderson fanatic!"
Calling all Cahills! Announcing a 39 Clues Superspecial adventure - the gang is back, and called to investigate one of their own: Sinead Starling.
