Publisher's Summary

The evil Librarians are coming! A hero with an incredible talent...for breaking things. A life-or-death rescue a bag of sand. A fearsome threat from a powerful secret network...the evil Librarians.
Alcatraz Smedry doesn't seem destined for anything but disaster. On his 13th birthday, he receives a bag of sand, which is quickly stolen by the cult of evil Librarians plotting to take over the world. The sand will give the Librarians the edge they need to achieve world domination. Alcatraz must stop infiltrating the local library, armed with nothing but eyeglasses and a talent for klutziness.

Listen to the end!

If you could sum up The Dark Talent in three words, what would they be?

The Smedry Way!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dark Talent?

When Bastille woke. I felt like a kid again as I laughed. It was probably good that I was in the confines of my own bedroom at that moment, because I was laughing like a maniacal fool.

What does Ramon de Ocampo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings a great assortment of voices, along with life to the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The final ultimatum.

Any additional comments?

Please do listen beyond the credits, if not, you will miss something VERY important.

Great as always!

Loved it! Brandon is like no one else and he continues to deliver in this 5th book. It has everything you would want out of an Alcatraz book and more. I was a little disappointed with the 4th book, but this book felt like new life was breathed into the series! If you read the first 4 books then the 5th book is a must read!
