In this illustrated prequel to the Halflings trilogy, written by Heather Burch, Mace and Raven are given a mission to stop a catastrophic event. With his halfling abilities still untapped, Vine is allowed to join the mission, but only as a spectator. The clock is ticking and the tragedy is proving difficult to stop. Will Vine be able to sit back and watch, or will the power of heaven unleash just in time?
11:15: The Making of a Halfling is prequel to Halflings (see my review here) and it gives a nice introduction to their world.
This short story starts when Mace, Raven, Vine and Will just move to be near Nikki, but they hadn’t received an assignment yet. Will receives a message from heaven and the three Halflings have to stop an event that will happen at a certain time and at a certain place (that’s all they know too!)
The story is good and it explains why Vine is an active participant alongside his “brothers”. Also, Nikki makes a short appearance. The other very cool thing is that the story has a few illustrations that I am dying to see in color!
This is a must read for Halflings fans ;)
