Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret

It's tough to review this book, because I don't want to give too much away if you haven't read the first book. But, we'll tell you about the obvious. Leven, Winter, Geth and Clover have made it to Foo, barely, where Leven meets his only living relative, Amelia Thumps. But the reunion is short lived. Leven and Winter are separated and Winter is taken to Jamoon, who is not happy about what has happened to the villain Sabine, though also realizes there is an opportunity to be had. Leven, Geth and Clover must rescue Winter, all while combating the fact that Geth may not have much longer to live, Leven is changing (we learn that those on Foo change with experience, not time), and that Winter is in serious, life-threatening trouble.

I thoroughly enjoyed "Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret" and can't wait for the next book to come out...though I have a feeling it won't be for at least six months. It was better than even the first book, and we learn many, many secrets in this book...but the most important comes last. Read this great book to find out what happens next to Leven and his friends. If you haven't already be sure to check out the Leven Thumps website.
