Livy Hinge thinks her biggest worries are...
the bully next door, the mysterious ingredients lurking in her mother’s Everything Casserole, and the tricky dilemmas her overactive imagination lands her in. But even Livy has never envisioned trees slinging splinters big as swords at her. Or falling off a giant moth five-hundred feet in the air, commanding the elements to stand still, or battling a throng of birds. And she’s certainly never been tasked with defeating an enemy bent on the destruction of her world. Until now.
When elfin warriors escort Livy to Broams Eld, she discovers a world where imagination is power, tadpole soup is what’s for dinner, and trees whisper secret enchantments. There she finds not only friends, a welcome home for her dare-devil antics, and magic, but an astounding destiny to inherit—if she can survive her first night.

Reviews for Hinges of Broams Eld
"The imagination and creation of the magical world is riveting..." Ande
"This book is tightly written and wonderfully imagined--a tale of our hidden potential and the strength we draw from family and friends. Jennifer Cano brings to life a spunky tomboy heroine who faces her emerging destiny with grit, sass, and just a litte bit of fear. A delightful peek into a hidden world filled with elves, enchantments, and an education in magic."
“Amazing book. Well crafted and developed, with relatable characters and lots of adventure. I was hooked from the start of this book to the last page, and can't wait for more books in the future!"
"This is a really fun read! I enjoy reading fantasy books and this one was no exception. The story teaches some great lessons and is geared towards pre-teens. I am a father of preteens, but still read this story in just a few days because I was hooked! I hope there is more to come!"
"I'm not a huge Middle Grade fan. I'm an adult with no kids so it's a bit childish for me but this one was fun. It had a Harry Potter feel ( the early books) and I liked how inventive it was. Loved the ending!"
"Hinges of Broams Eld is a great fantasy novel! It is full of adventure, magic, and fun. It has a clever plot line that anyone would love. I love this book so much that I wish there were more! I love all of the characters, and their different personalities. I love this book!!!!!!!!!"
"This book is a great read for people of all ages! It has a unique plot and a creative, fun storyline. I highly recommend this book."
"I had a fantastic time reading this book with my 12 year old daughter. It's so nice to share a book with her that features strong female characters. She loved it so much that she's read it again already."
I bought this book for my daughter (11 years old) and she loved it. I just finished it myself since I like to read the books my children are reading. My sons (9 and 8) will be reading this next after they complete another series they are reading. I loved the creativity and imagination that went into this story. The fantasy world, characters and magic system were great. I am looking forward to the next book in the series."
"I loved the plot and I recommend everyone read this. It was a fun read."
“What an imaginative and fun book! Jennifer Cano is a new, talented author who has developed a fun-filled, imaginative world. The plot was interesting with twists and turns and had just the right pace. I normally don't read a lot in this genre, but had such a good time, I'll definitely return if Cano writes another book."
“For those of you Mama's and dad's looking for a good children's book for your kid, check out Hinges of Broams Eld. You won't be disappointed. You know a book is good when not only your kid loves it, but so do you. It's got the three secret ingredients. Magic, mystery and humor."
“[Cano's] debut novel is a great family read-aloud, or end-of-summer read-alone full of intrigue, humor, and heart. Compelling characters pull you though the story from beginning to end as you anxiously anticipate what will happen beyond the Hinges of Broams Eld."
