Alcatraz is a middle-grade series by Brandon Sanderson. It currently consists of 5 books told from the point of view of Alcatraz Smedry, a young boy and heir to House Smedry.

The first four books were originally published by Scholastic, one a year between 2007 and 2010. Due to disagreements between Brandon and Scholastic on the cover art and editing processes of the books, the fifth and final book was postponed indefinitely.[Citation needed] After Scholastic's contract lapsed, Brandon bought back the rights and sold them to Tor, who republished them with new art in 2016 before releasing the final book, The Dark Talent, in September 2016.
