I’ve not read the other books in this series, only this prequel, so I can only rate it on its own merits. Basically a Christian “paranormal” young adult book, with half-angels training to fight darkness. Decent enough and reasonably entertaining, though I’m not really the intended audience.
Interesting short story
Loved the drawings that went along with this. A full length novel with drawings interspersed would definitely be at the top of my reading list!
An intriguing series sample
New angel, Vine, is working on obtaining his wings, but he’s still got much training to do. In the midst of one training session, they receive a call from the Head Honcho to check out a local rock concert. There’s something funny going on there.
Great Short Story
I enjoyed this short prequel more than I did Halflings, book one in the series. It had a great story line and full of suspense. Although, I must admit, the fight at the beginning between Raven and Vine is kind of boring. The thing I liked best about 11:15 was that you got to hear more of Vine’s story, and how tapped to become a halfling. I liked Vine in the first book, but we didn’t get to hear much about him until this prequel. I was amazed that he found the problem at the concert almost right away. The illustrations in the ebook are drawn really well. They give a lot of insight to what the characters look like, and they looked way different in my head. This was a very enjoyable prequel. I kind of wish I would have read it before I read the book. I think if I would have read the prequel first, I would have liked the first book better.
Good start to what can only be an awesome series!

This is a Christian fiction YA short prequel to a series. I suppose it is marketed for young teenage boys! I can’t imagine young teenage girls not liking the story as well. What I found surprising is the fact that it is illustrated. I found that to be a nice touch. The story is short and an easy read. Something that I really like in a prequel. The characters is well formed and as half human / half Angels also surprisingly human, with human shortcomings and weaknesses. The premise of the story is intriguing and I can see this becoming a well loved series. I give this prequel a 5 * rating and find myself very proud of the standard of Christian YA fiction available these days.
It was a quick, fun and entertaining light read

I read 11:15 The Making of a Halfling By Heather Burch a few months after I read the first book ‘Halfling’, which got a 4 star review from me. I found 11:15 The Making of a Halfling a quick 15 minute easy read for me and it gave readers, who haven’t yet read the first book ‘Halflings’ a quick introduction to Mace, Raven, Vine and Will as we get to see how Vine became a Halfling first hand. As a added bonus we catch a glimpse of Nikki, who is a main chatcher in the first book Halflings. All in all, it was a quick, fun and entertaining light read and the illustrated picture were gorgeous to look at, I’m giving it 4 stars. I just wished it was longer.
High Interest YA Series
The Halfling series is about some beings that are here on earth that are half-human and half angels. The three boys, Raven, Mace, and Vine live with Will, their angel master. They follow commands from heaven, acting against evil, and the minions of the devil. In this short story, Vine, the youngest boy, receives his wings. This is a prequel for Heather Burch’s Halflings series. This is an exciting series and this short story is a race from beginning to end as the boys go on a mission to save a group of kids at a concert. Burch weaves a gripping story, sure to please teen readers and a great many more. If you like clean, gripping, action, you will love this!
A read worth checking out.

11:15: The Making of a Halfling – 4.5 Stars
Storyline – 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.
Perfect Taste of What’s to Come
From the first page, Heather Burch’s way with words sucked me into the story. I love it when a book not only offers a captivating plot, but beautiful, lyrical prose ~ and this definitely gives me an inkling of what the book to come is going to be all about!
