One of my biggest complaints in "ya fiction" series is that they spend way too much time rehashing what happened in previous books. Typically, this drives me bananas. This is one of the first books I have noticed that does not do that, and strangely, it made me crazy! That's because it has been nearly a year since I last read #3, and I couldn't immediately pull up who was who or where they were. Odd.

I also have to add that although Kirkus Reviews said the book had "Splendidly unpredictable plot

THIS BOOK COUNTS AS TWO BOOKS

The Wrath of Ezra is about Ezra and Dennis trying to stop people from Foo trying to get to Reality. It is also about Leven becoming the Want. The sychophants are also trying to stop people from Foo Trying to get to Reality.

I gave this book 5 stars because once again I couldnt put it down.

I would recomend this book to anyone who liked the first 3 books in the Leven Thumps series.

As always, the writer of this great Leven Thumps series never fails to surprise me! This book was absolutely great. I flew through the pages, finishing it faster than any other book in this sereis.
It had some funny chapter titles; I also liked the cover--an illustration of Ezra by Benjamen R. Sowards. That toothpick was very rude, but I was surprised at the end of the book that I could get so wide-eyed and tense over his seeming demise.

"Leven Thumps and Wrath of Ezra"; by Obert Skye is definitely one of my favorite books out of the series. It's a fantasy adventure story filled with action, humor, mystery, and suspense. The author takes it to a whole new level by creating strange creatures, refreshingly new characters, and a land never known before.
The story takes place in Foo, the place where man kinds' dreams and imaginations become possible. Without these two places kept separate, everything would turn to complete chaos, o

I liked this book better than the third one, but there were still way too many main characters. I was glad Leven wasn't separated from Winter and Geth this time like usual. I also liked the way in which Janet has progressed. Her character has definitely grown the most. I did think Janet and Osk's romance was a little weird, though.

I wish we were given more details. For instance, why has Winter grown five years in just a few short weeks? I understand that Leven is an offing and grows through exp

I've lowered my review for this book as compared to some of the earlier ones. In the end, all the little niggling annoyances that I had with series at first are amplified in this one. Honestly, one can't help but feel that Obert Skye is shooting for these books to be humorous. But the humor simply isn't worth the time spent on it. New annoyances include a complete lack of explanation for why certain events occur and how Ezra mysteriously has gained insight into pop culture. I'm sure it was to tr ...more

The war within Foo escalates. Leven, now the Want, has to figure out how to stop an evil that even Foo mostly considers myth. The Dearth is rising. Has risen. The very soil beneath belongs to the Dearth, and he can use it in terrifying ways. His aim is Reality---and along with it, the destruction of the sycophants.

Within such a large backdrop, though, the smaller stories continue to play out. Tim's quest to find Winter. Janet's search for redemption. And the titular Ezra, who is determined to fi

Although this book had a number of great plot points, it just wasn't that good. It kind of feels like the author has just given up and is pushing himself to finish the series. There were a lot of shortcuts that didn't make a whole lot of sense, and the style felt extremely forced. I'll read the next (and final!) book when it comes out, and I'm excited to see how the story ends, but I'm afraid the series overall just isn't as much fun as it was to start with.

I took me forever to get interested in this one. About half-way throught it started to draw me in. If you haven't read the previous books, it will make virtually no sense to you, so it is essential that you read the previous 3 books before this one. Also, I wasn't thrilled with the ending. Overall, it was OK, but I would never read it again. Not worth the time and energy, and too many loose end and chapters that were never tied back into the story.
Jamissmile
2*'s. Second to Last book in the series. Maybe I didn't noticed it in the first few books, maybe he totally changed his writing style, I don't know. But the start of - EVERY- chapter began with a long paragraph, sometimes two, about absolutely nothing. It annoyed the heck out of me. This book is a cliffhanger.

The Dearth has awakened and wants to destroy all of humanity, the secret of the Sycophants has been revealed and it is up to Leven Thumps and his companions to save all of Foo and Reality.
This book takes place in Foo for Leven Thumps and his Companions while the story takes place in Reality for Dennis O Wood and Ezra.
Protagonists: Leven Thumps, Winter Frore, Clover Ernest, and Geth

I'm still waiting to see Leven's potential Obert Skye keeps alluding to. He's getting a bit more powerful bit by bit, but I still think Harry Potter could kick his butt in a showdown. Although it dragged a bit and switched back and forth with too many characters and subplots to keep straight, I like the style of writing, and I'm excited to see what happens in the final book. Then I can finally say I finished it. It's taken me a long time to get through the series, but I'm committed to it and the ...more

A great darkness is ascending from beneath the dirt, as the true evil of foo is revealed and the dearth rises above the soil.

Although childish and strange the good far out weighs the bad in this case. Now you may look at this cover and think that it is way too childish with a toothpick on the front cover.

After the disappointment of reading "The Youngest Templar: Keeper of the Grail," By Michael Spradlin, I found that Mr. Skye's book was a refreshing redemption of young adult literature, especially since I read both books back-to-back. In fact, part of the reason I picked up "Leven Thumps" was to see whether all YA literature was going down the same trail, or whether it was just a few books (and copious amounts of "fan fic").

This book was better than book 3, but there were things that still bothered me about the book. There was not as much switching from character story to character story in each chapter, but there was still enough to irritate me. At the beginning of each chapter the author put in his own random thoughts about Foo or Reality or feeling, etc. About halfway through the book I was annoyed enough to skip the first paragraph so that I could just read the "real" story.

Both books 3 and 4 ended their storie

I loved this book. I think it was better than the third.

The author changed the way he wrote though and it caught me off guard, in a bad way. He started to write as if he knew the characters and had interacted with them. He also began each chapter with a page or two of random comments, very much in the Lemony Snicket style. Since the previous three books weren't like this, I was rather miffed. But the things he wrote were really funny and quite clever and I soon found myself enjoying them. I als

This is the Fourth book of the series of Leven Thumps. It's easy to see how far Leven and Winter and Geth have come after the first two books. Geth is now restored, but by the moment he seems to be growing shorter. Also, recently Winter's old caretaker/mother is now a wisp. In other words, she accidently was in the wrong spot at the wrong time. Her body was just hanging over the side walk a tad, so now she is half in Foo, and yet still at the same time half of her is in Reality. She feels bad a ...more

Book 4 of 5. Another solid entry, but this one ended far more abruptly than the first three. Makes me glad I've got the fifth book in hand to get started on immediately.

Rating: PG, for some action sequences and a semi-scary bad guy (for little kids, but this holds for the earlier books, too).






***SPOILERS AHEAD***



Bionic Ezra, and Ezra feeling all girlie inside? Hilarious.

Traveling by rope is a pretty novel idea (granted, Skye has a lot of those).

The fourth book in the Leven Thumps series. Leven, Geth, and Winter continue to fight for the safety of Foo and the dreams of mankind in reality. The Dearth has risen and Sycophant Run is on the brink of invasion. Meanwhile in reality, Terry and Addy have joined forces with Dennis and Ezra, the crazed toothpick. Fans of the series wil find it hard to wait for the 5th and final novel to see how this adventure ends.

So I never finished the Leven Thumps series because it just got too predictable...in that EVERY chapter has something in it so wacky, so esoteric, so absolutely unbelievable that I actually started guessing on crazy things that might happen. Sorry, Mr. Obert Skye (if that is your real name), you lost me...
On a more macro level (I'm going to get in trouble for this), has anyone else noticed that LDS authors tend to have less talent that "mainstream" authors? And don't give me the "but Mormon auth

When I started reading the Leven Thumps series I wasn't too thrilled with it, but once I start a series I have to finish it. Well, I just finished the fourth book and am receiving the last and final book for Christmas. I have to say that Leven Thumps has really started to grow on me. The last Leven Thumps book I read was two years ago and as soon as I picked up the Wrath of Ezra I felt like I was being comforted by an old friend! I love when I get that feeling when reading a book!

The author is even more intrusive than in the other books. The story seems to improve some but the reason I dropped it to a 3 star rather than a 4 is because the ending seems to be missing. Granted the author uses the "none end" to force people to buy the next and last of the books but he could still have put an ending to this book and this part of the adventure and in this book there is no relief, no chance to catch you breath and prepare for the final book. He has simply written one book and c ...more

Obert Skye changed his writing style in this installment. He started writing from a first person perspective at the beginning of each chapter. It kind of reminds me of Lemony Snickets. It actually works really well. They are funny little beginnings, and the chapter titles are funny too.
The story itself had more action and more humor than the third book. Leven and Winter seem older than they did at the beginning of the series. Things are not looking good for Foo as the Dearth gains strength and t

“There are times in a person's life when he or she must make a choice to believe. I choose to believe the sun will rise tomorrow. I also choose to believe that if you go to bed hungry you will wake up ready to eat. I've met a group of men in a faraway country who choose to believe that if you stand on a tree stump for an hour you will gain sympathy for trees. I am already quite sympathetic to trees, so I choose to think they are bonkers.” 77 likes
“There are so many impatient people in the world. It seems everyone wants something right this second. We don't want to wait in lines, we get fidgety when our food takes too long to cook, and we have no tolerance whatsoever for anyone who holds us up from doing anything we want to do the moment we want to do it. I'm bothered right now that I'm having to wait till the end of this sentence to see what word I end up on. On, who knew? It's particularly hard to wait for things that are days or weeks or even months away. Calendars mock you, clocks pester you, and the rotation of the earth seems to slow by at least forty percent. I suppose, however, that if you were preparing to take over the world and you needed one final piece to fall into place, but that piece had to be slowly dragged over the dirt so it didn't die, that would be really hard to wait for. I'd feel sorry for whoever that happened to, but then again they were trying to take over the world and all.
So please, no sympathy for Azure.”
