The evil Librarians are coming! A hero with an incredible talent...for breaking things. A life-or-death mission...to rescue a bag of sand. A fearsome threat from a powerful secret network...the evil Librarians. Alcatraz Smedry doesn't seem destined for anything but disaster. On his 13th birthday he receives a bag of sand, which is quickly stolen by the cult of evil Librarians plotting to take over the world. The sand will give the Librarians the edge they need to achieve world domination. Alcatraz must stop them!...by infiltrating the local library, armed with nothing but eyeglasses and a talent for klutziness.

About the Author

American author, Brandon Sanderson, writes of epic fantasy and science fiction. His best known works include Cosmere, a fictional universe in which most of his novels are set. They include, the Mistborn series, and the Stormlight Archive, and also finishing The Wheel of Time, that was Robert Jordan's high fantasy novel (that he began writing before his untimely death). He also made popular the terms "hard and soft magic systems" in his Sanderson's Laws of Magic. The media company, DMG Entertainment has rights to the production movie of the Cosmere universe series.

Sanderson graduated from Brigham Young University. He began studies in biochemistry, to become a doctor, but after a two year break to do mission work for his church, he decided he wanted to write, and changed majors to English Literature. He took a night job at a local hotel in Provo, Utah while at BYU, so he could write while working. His roommate during that time was Ken Jennings, who ten years later had a 74-game winning streak on Jeopardy. After graduation from BYU, Sanderson married Emily Bushman, a fellow English major who later became his business manager.

Sanderson sold his first book to Moshe Feder at Tor in 2003. He had almost given up after submitting his manuscript a year and one half earlier. That first novel was Elantris, and over the next few years, Tor also published the Mistborn Trilogy, The Alloy of Law, Warbreaker, and The Way of Kings, the first in the ten-volume series, The Stormlight Archive. The second in that series was Words of Radiance. Other volumes continue in the works. Sanderson's acclaimed Infinity Blade: Awakening was an ebook best seller for Epic Games, accompanying their popular iOS video game series.

Sanderson, his wife, Emily, and their three sons live in American Fork, Utah.
