Alcatraz Versus the Shattered Lens is a juvenile fiction novel by Brandon Sanderson, published in December 2010 by Scholastic Press. It is the fourth book in the Alcatraz Versus series featuring the protagonist Alcatraz Smedry.

Plot Summary[edit]

Alcatraz and his companions head off to Mokia, one of the Free Kingdoms, to try and save it from a Librarian take over.

Alcatraz succeeds, but at great cost. Mokia is largely destroyed. Its King and Queen, over half of the fighting men, and even Alcatraz's good friend and personal body guard Bastille are all left comatose with no known cure. The Smedry Talents have been broken. On top of it all Alcatraz had come to question his own motivations and reconsider his relationship towards his villainous mother.

Smedry Talents[edit]

Aydee Ecks, a cousin of Alcatraz's, has the talent of being really bad at math. It was very useful during the battle against the Librarians in Mokia, because Aydee used her talent to give them more exploding teddy bears, which were used to halt the Librarian robots.
