Bastille vs. the Evil Librarians (Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians #6) (Hardcover)
Now a USA TODAY Bestseller! Now a New York Times Bestseller!
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson and Janci Patterson comes Bastille vs. the Evil Librarians, the thrilling conclusion to the Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians saga.
As a Knight of Crystallia, I, Bastille, swore to protect the Smedry clan from the Evil Librarians. (And believe me, screwups like them constantly need protecting.) But when Alcatraz Smedry got strapped to an altar of outdated encyclopedias to be sacrificed to the dark gods, I arrived too late—and instead his father took his place.
Now Alcatraz is a blubbering mess, so it’s up to me to lead the charge against his father’s killer: Biblioden, founder of the Evil Librarians—I was sure he died centuries ago!—who’s back to complete his goal of world domination. Now he’s going to use the dark powers he gained from that sacrifice against everyone not under Evil Librarian control. Being burned up from the inside is not how I plan to die, so I’d better figure out some way to stop him or we’re toast!
I know Alcatraz is wrong when he swears he’s no hero. But when a hero falls short, that’s the time for everyone else to step up and do what needs to be done.

“This bustling entry features miraculous survivals and just deserts for the biblio-baddies… Rescues and kittens by the carload, with a bit of inner growth on the side.”—Kirkus Reviews
“I enjoy humor that makes me think, so this book’s absurd wit is up my alley… The characters and story are highly delightful, and I highly recommend you give the book, and series, a shot.”—YA Books Central
“An amazing read for kids 8-14 . . . but adults who are young at heart and don’t mind something a little silly and quirky once in a while would probably have a blast with it as well. . . . Bastille vs. the Evil Librarians was the conclusion the readers deserved, and I closed the cover on the final page of my favorite MG series of all time feeling content and satisfied.”—Bibliosanctum
For the Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians series:
"This is an excellent choice to read aloud to the whole family. It's funny, exciting, and briskly paced. Best of all, the message it gives young readers is that a person's flaws--being late, breaking things, etc.--can sometimes turn into useful talents." --Nancy Pearl on NPR's Morning Edition
"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
"A happily action-packed romp." --Horn Book
