Alcatraz is back, and this time is on the trail of his Grandfather Smedry, who himself is on the trail of Alcatraz's father, who himself has headed to the Library of Alexandria. If this sounds confusing, don't worry, it isn't. It is, however, indicative of the style of this book.

Brandon Saunderson's second entry in his Alcatraz series continues with the mad-capped, zany, fourth-wall-breaking adventures of his protagonist stumbling from disaster to disaster, using his talent for breaking things to try and save the day. Alcatraz learns more about his power, as well as the rest of his family. He also gets a glimpse into what Bastille's life is really like (with hints of the romance you know is coming!)

This is an excellent book for the reluctant reader in your life, as well as the ardent fantasy fan. It does not take itself too seriously, while taking swipes at the likes of Garth Nix. Go get this.
