Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones

Style and content. The Sanderson's Alcatraz books complete the rare feat of telling an engaging story in a very entertaining style. In Scrivener's bones, Alcatraz and his companions infiltrate the Library of Alexandria to try to find his father and grandfather. The library has a repository of all written knowledge. There is only one catch. You must give up your sole to check out anything.

Alcatraz tells this story as somebody straddling our "hushlands" world with that of the 3 kingdoms. He regularly butts in with random anecdotes or leads us on false tangents just to keep things interesting. There is plenty of subtle commentary on our culture and values along with a whole lot of really well done humor.
