About Broken Branch Falls
Gabe is tired of his goblin life. Doing homework for bully ogres and laughed at as the butt of pixie pranks, Gabe wants a change. When he and his friends step out of their nerdy stereotype and pull a prank on the dragons at the first football game, it literally backfires, bringing in the High Council who vote to dismantle not only Gingko High, but the whole town of Broken Branch Falls.
Gabe is now an outcast. But hope of fixing the fate of his town reaches his enormous ears. The Book of Ages, hidden handbook of the High Council, holds secrets and power. With the help of friends, old and new, Gabe has less than two weeks to complete his quest, solving riddles and facing challenges all over the sector, to find the Book and get it back in time to save Broken Branch Falls. After all that trouble, it better work.
Reviews for Broken Branch Falls
The title of this book was what caught my attention. I read the synopsis, but I’ve already decided that I wanted to read this book. Broken Dolls was alone very appealing to me.
And I wasn’t disappointed, at all. The writing was light; it fitted the story line properly, without unnecessary embellishments, and it was fast paced. One of the most interesting aspects of this story was the twist created by the author in the last third of the book. I have to confess, I wasn’t expecting that; it was well done.

This is the great start to an very interesting middle grade novel that introduce you to situations much like we encounter in our everyday world where you got whole towns made up of instead of various races their are different creatures that are meant to live together but they are to remain separate to keep pure and this does not stick well with our main character. He sets off the wild adventure with a few good friends of course to prove the high council wrong. I can not wait to dive into book two, where their might just [...]
This easing in was really refreshing. Despite the fantastical world, serious high school issues are touched upon such as mobbing and unexpected (often unaccepted) relationships. I honestly found this an interesting and clever way to address these issues - very forward but at the same time, because of the imaginative world, not irritatingly preachy. Summed up, this is a fun story for young fantasy lovers and is sure to keep them hooked to the pages until the very end.
This was a fun read. Gabe was a quirky character and it was fun to get inside his head. When the story begins, he's just like any other awkward teenager (even though he's a goblin), but as the story progresses, it takes a different turn and Gabe and his friends go on a quest to save their town from being torn apart. I just loved the descriptions of all of the beasts Gabe lives with and the ones he encounters during his quest.
