Leven Thumps and the Eyes of the Want || Obert Skye

So far the best book out of the Leven Thumps series, this book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it.

This book gives new meaning to the phrase "the plot thickens," as things within Foo and Reality become more and more complicated. It's hard to find someone to root for, as the lines between good and evil start to blur. I found myself feeling sorry for those who had been villains in prior books, and I found my jaw dropping more than once at things characters I thought were good ended up doing.

The characters' growth in this book is something to note, too. Leven, as well as his sidekicks, are thrown into some crazy situations which makes them grow up, and quickly. This is even shown many times as Leven marvels about tall he's gotten, and how much he's changed in the very short time he's been in Foo.

As usual, Skye brings us into Foo with his wonderful and unique descriptions. This is my favorite of the book so far, and I am eagerly looking forward to the next two.
