Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:
Who knew that libraries were centres for all evil? Alcatraz Smedry, practically the world champion of breaking things, never thought his most boring birthday present - a bag of sand - would get him into this much trouble. Yet now he's fleeing from evil Librarians, releasing dinosaurs to create a diversion in the Fiction section, and learning that clumsiness can be a powerful talent!
The Dark Talent by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson’s Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians series comes to an electrifying conclusion... ...and it’s about time if you ask me. By “me” I of course mean me, Alcatraz Smedry. This is the last chapter of my autobiography, and was the hardest one for me to write. Because, in it—I’m not a hero. In fact, I’m the one who screwed everything up for everyone else. First off, my Talent for breaking things got a little out of hand, and I ended up destroying everyone else’s Talents. As in “anyone who was born with a Talent no longer has a Talent and might never get their Talent back”—and all because of a Talent of mine which I no longer have. Got it? Even worse, my best friend Bastille (she’s a girl, and a friend, but not really my girlfriend...I think?) was put in a coma by those Librarian slugs. So I owed them one for that. And worse than worse, I needed to enter the heart of Librarian power—the dreaded Highbrary—if I was ever going to bring Bastille back to life and stop my know-it-all hotshot renegade father from unleashing chaos all over the world just because he thinks it’s the right thing to do. I wasn’t sure I would make it out in one piece. Or two pieces. Or even ten pieces, considering how ticked off the Librarians were with me. So if you’re willing to read about a world full of deadly dangers and fearsome foes unlike anything you’ve read before, turn the page. After all, I made it out alive... Though someone very close to me didn’t.

The Shattered Lens by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:
The sci/fi fantasy adventures of Brandon Sanderson--#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Knights of Crystallia and the Mistborn series—have been praised as “genuinely funny” and “an excellent choice” and...and... ...and you know what? That’s enough. For too long, I’ve been telling you all how fantastic this Brandon Sanderson character is, and I’m just sick of it. Take it from me—I’ve actually met the guy. Now me? I can be impressive. Unfortunately, that’s usually when the trouble starts. But not this time! Honest! I mean, it’s hardly my fault that the kingdom of Mokia was about to fall to the evil forces of the Librarians. And it’s not really my fault if I sort of accidentally led a small force of freedom fighters to the Mokian capital of Tuki Tuki to help save the city and its brave people. And it’s definitely not my fault that the Librarians found out I was there and launched an all-out attack with giant robots and scary weapons that permanently knocked people out and blew huge holes in the ground and kidnapped people and then my Librarian mother showed up and ruined everything as usual while my father was too busy to care even though he’s the one who was going to unleash chaos on the world and my talent for breaking things was getting way out of control and I didn’t know what to do!!! (WHEW!) So...if you want to keep reading and find out what else was totally not—I repeat, NOT—my fault, go right ahead. Just don’t blame me if you can’t stop turning the pages. Praise for the Alcatraz series: “Like Lemony Snicket and superhero comics rolled into one (and then revved up on steroids).”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) “An excellent choice to read aloud to the whole family.” —NPR “Those who enjoy their fantasy with a healthy dose of slapstick humor will be delighted.” —School Library Journal “Genuinely funny...plenty here to enjoy.” —Locus “In this original, hysterical homage to fantasy literature, Sanderson’s first novel for youth recalls the best in Artemis Fowl and A Series of Unfortunate Events.” —VOYA
The Knights of Crystallia by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:
Brandon Sanderson--#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Scrivener’s Bones and the Mistborn series—returns with yet another action-packed, hair-raising, eye-popping, ear-flicking, tooth-picking, nose-licking... ...Sheesh! With all that buildup, even I can’t wait to see what happens in this story—and I’m the one who wrote it! Since you’re reading this, I’m going to assume you’re intelligent enough to have read both of my previous adventures as told by myself—the one and only Alcatraz Smedry (insert applause here)—and don’t need to be caught up. After braving many perils with my grandpa and our band of courageous comrades (we almost got killed a lot), I was finally going to visit Nalhalla, home of the Smedry family and of Crystallia, where Bastille—my Crystin Knight best friend/protector/tormentor—was trained. I knew I would love it. Especially since everybody there thinks I’m pretty much the greatest hero in the history of heroes. Hey, I’m not going to argue. Unfortunately, there’s trouble brewing (yeah, I know, big surprise). Because those dastardly Librarians are sending an ambassador for peace talks. And all they want in return for stopping the fighting is control over the proud realm of Mokia. Personally, I think the idea stinks on ice. And off ice. And without any ice. It just stinks. The problem is that not everyone in Nalhalla is as cool and tough and brave and handsome as I am (stop laughing!). And there are some who will do anything to suck up to those lying Librarian lowlifes—even if it means betraying everything the Free Kingdoms stand for. And if you’re as intelligent as I assume you are, you know that means I’m going to have to stop them. But how? Well, start reading and find out.

The Scrivener's Bones by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:
#1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn series Brandon Sanderson continues the epic adventure he began in Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians... So if you haven’t read that one yet, put this book down, buy the first one (several copies!), read it, and come back when you know what the heck is going on. Go ahead. I’ll wait... Good, you’re back. So now you’ve read all about me, Alcatraz Smedry, and how I was swept out of my life in your normal world, and into the fight against the Librarians (jerks!). And after being all heroic and stuff in that tale I really didn’t expect much—though a huge parade would have been appreciated. Seriously, even a pizza party would have worked. I certainly didn’t expect to charge headlong into enemy territory—the Library of Alexandria, where I and my grandpa and my grouchy bodyguard Bastille and her even grouchier mother and some weirdly gifted cousins would face the Curators (ghosts who will gladly help you check out a book...as long as you don’t mind giving up your mortal soul) and some new, nasty Librarians who hate our guts—and would be happy to rip them out for us. But none of that comes close to the horror we would have to face if we succeeded in finding what we were searching for... MY DAD! (DUN DUN DUNNNNNN!) Big surprise there, right? Well, believe me—that’s not even close to the biggest surprise you’re going to get when you read this book...

Legion by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:
A novella from #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Legion is a fast-paced, witty, and supremely fun thriller with a psychological bent. Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It’s his hallucinations who are mad. A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people—Stephen calls them aspects—to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems…for a price. His brain is getting a little crowded, however, and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property—a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past—Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions—and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects. -------------------- A note from the publisher: Brandon will send a free copy of this ebook to anyone who purchased the Subterranean Press hardcover. See the title page in the ebook preview for details.
Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:
Warbreaker is the story of two sisters - who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, a lesser god, and an immortal trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago. Theirs is a world in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city. A world transformed by BioChromatic magic, a power based on an essence known as breath. Using magic is arduous: breath can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people. But the rewards are great: by using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be performed. Brandon Sanderson proves again that he is a master of what Tolkien called 'secondary creation,' the invention of whole worlds, complete with magics and myths all their own.
The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World by E.L. Konigsburg Book Resume:
"ninety percent of who you are is invisible." Amedeo Kaplan seems just like any other new kid who has moved into the town of St. Malo, Florida, a navy town where new faces are the norm. But Amedeo has a secret, a dream: More than anything in the world, he wants to discover something -- a place, a process, even a fossil -- some treasure that no one realizes is there until he finds it. And he would also like to discover a true friend to share these things with. William Wilcox seems like an unlikely candidate for friendship: an aloof boy who is all edges and who owns silence the way other people own words. When Amedeo and William find themselves working together on a house sale for Amedeo's eccentric neighbor, Mrs. Zender, Amedeo has an inkling that both his wishes may come true. For Mrs. Zender's mansion is crammed with memorabilia of her long life, and there is a story to go with every piece. Soon the boys find themselves caught up in one particular story -- a story that links a sketch, a young boy's life, an old man's reminiscence, and a painful secret dating back to the outrages of Nazi Germany. It's a story that will take them to the edge of what they know about heroism and the mystery of the human heart. Two-time Newbery winner E. L. Konigsburg spins a magnificent tale of art, discovery, friendship, history, and truth.
Elantris by Brandon Sanderson Book Resume:

This new edition begins with a preface by author Dan Wells, the first person to read the completed novel, and a new afterword by Sanderson explaining how he came to write the book and its place in the Cosmere, the unified universe of all his Tor novels.
