11.15 THE MAKING OF A HALFLING BY HEATHER BURCH
Publisher: Zonderkidz, Zondervan
BLURB from Amazon
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?
I enjoyed this prequel novella, it gave a sneak preview of what to expect and what is to come with the full length book, which I am now even more eager to read. I loved the camaraderie between the characters. The way Vine literally begs to go on the mission, even if he can only go as an observer. In the end it seems that Vine taps into his powers at a crucial moment and kind of saves the day. This sets the scene well for the following book.
