Halfling Series: 2 Enovellas


Bookworm's Ranking - 4 - 4.5 Worms
Storyline -

11:15 The Making of a Hafling - As Raven and Mace wait for their next assingment, they train Vine for when he will come into his gift. When a mission comes up, Vine goes with his Halfling brothers to stop a deadly fire just to watch but soon Vine get in trouble and he might not make it out alive.

A Halfling Rescue - The Halfling group go on a mission to rescue a movie star and her friends who have been taken hostage by gunmen. Under constant threat of being discovered, the Halflings work to subdue the captors but they might also get caught.

Author - Heather Burch

Publisher - Zondervan

Age Group -  15 and up

Content - *May Contain Spoilers* Raven is his usually rebellous self and Mace is just as frustrated with him. The Halflings put themselves in danger to save others, even at the risk of their own lives.

Personal Opinion - 11:15 is the story of Vine I've been waiting for! It fits perfectly with the beginning of the series. A Halfling Rescue is a fun adventure that takes place between books 1 and 2. It was a bit slow but was a great story about sacrifice. Both were not as serious as the main series but cool adventures and were separate from the rest of the books so don't feel like you might have missed something if you haven't read them. I loved the comic like pictures sprinkled within the text (somehow, it fit but I don't know what I would think of them if there were in the main series. Then again it might be fun). If you are planning on reading the Halfling series, or already have, read these too. They will just add a bit more fun to the series.

Buy - Amazon, Barnes and Noble, ChristianBookPublisher (all the novellas are free at each of these places)
