Alcatraz versus the Knights of Crystallia by Brandon Sanderson

For my reviews of the first two books in the Alcatraz series please click here: Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians, Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones.

Title: Alcatraz Versus the Knights of Crystallia (Book 3 in the Alcatraz series)
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Reviewer: Karen
Genre: Teen Fantasy
Rating: Fabulous
Alerts/Warnings: None
Premise: "When Alcatraz and Grandpa Smedry make a pilgrimage to the Free Kingdom city of Crystallia, they are shocked to find the city under siege by the Evil Librarians--led by Alcatraz's own mother." (King County Library System)
Opinions: I LOVE this series. The wit that goes into these books is outstanding. Sanderson does a brilliant job of the "voice" of the story - the person telling it. The characters our outrageously unique and funny. I also love how the narrator (Alcatraz Smedry) constantly mocks Brandon Sanderson the long-winded fantasy author.

In this installment we discover new Smedry talents, new uses for everyday things that you probably would have never thought of, and a greater depth to Alcatraz, Bastille, and especially Alcatraz's mother. This book continues to be brilliant in a series that makes me laugh with every single turn of the page. Please read take time to get to know this series.
