I sit andet møde med de onde bibliotekarer, der styrer verden, må Alcatraz og gruppen af frihedskæmpere finde bedstefar Smedry. Hans spor leder dem til det gamle og mystiske bibliotek i Alexandria. Tyslænderne – de folk, der lever i de bibliotekar-kontrollerede lande – tror at det bibliotek blev tilintetgjort for mange år siden. Beboerne i De Frie Kongeriger kender sandheden. Biblioteket i Alexandria eksisterer stadig, og det er et af de farligste steder på denne planet. Det er nemlig her de mest uhyggelige bibliotekarer hører til. Den hemmelige sekt af sjælestjælende kuratorer. Kan Alcatraz og hans venner redde bedstefar Smedry og komme ud af biblioteket i live?
