The Knights of Crystallia (Alcatraz, #3)The Knights of Crystallia by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm reading this series with my seven-year-old daughter, and she loves it so much she can't wait for bedtime reading. Almost every day she tells me how excited she is to see what happens next. In my opinion, any book that gets a kid that excited about reading is doing something very right.

Seeing as how this is the fourth book in the series, I don't have a whole lot to add to this review. I assume, if you've made it this far, you're already familiar with Alcatraz, his wacky Talent, and the Hushland/Free Kingdoms world.

The major arc in this installation is that Alcatraz has finally arrived in Nalhalla, just in time to stop the Council of Kings from surrendering Mokia to the Librarians. To do this, he'll need the help of his friend Bastille, his Grandpa, and a few new acquaintances and relatives.

As with the previous volumes, the story is peppered with dry humor and interjections from the author (The author being Alcatraz as Narrator). These tend to be either funny or irritating depending on your mood and personality.

If you enjoyed the other books in the series, you'll likely enjoy this one too. ;)
