Every hero, even the accidental ones, has a beginning. Silas's radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti's research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can't alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn't enough.… (plus d'informations)

This isn't fair! This novella needs to be included with the first novel, either as the prologue or the epilogue. It doesn't even have to be one or the other, considering that the novel and the novella are both ripe with time travel, alternate timelines and alternate memories and completely nonlinear even if it takes place at the dawn of the story.

Correction, it takes place after the prologue of the novel, but before the real opening.

Here's the problem, though: Silas and Allen are main characters, and we don't really get to know those two until later in the proper novel, and the fact that they actually knew Peri can be inferred later on, but it is explicit in the novella. Would having such spoilers improve the tale or take away from it? I don't know! But I do know that this novella is almost required reading for all the pieces that fit so perfectly but without much explanation in the real novel.

Like how the time travel works, what theoretical foundation is used, why long draftings isn't normally used and why its so damn dangerous, and we even get the source of Peri's odd little turns of phrases.

It's almost like it was edited out of the novel to improve the impact, but in so doing, it left out some vital pieces of real comprehension for us.

I'm sorry, but I vote for putting it back in. There was a bit of an info-dump, but the tale was still completely self-contained and full of adventure and tragedy. It's very worth reading if you're going to read Kim Harrison's new series. But again, it has spoilers. If you're a purist, read this after the novel even if it takes place before the novel.

If you want to have a solid foundation and foreknowledge of certain important themes coloring your perception of the otherwise greater and claustrophobic tale, then by all means read the novella first.

I am personally very tolerant of spoilers, because then I can reach through and see the greater or more subtle undercurrents without distraction. If you're like me, READ THIS FIRST. :)

Either way, the novella has improved my appreciation of The Drafter. ( )

A good short

It is a good prequel and makes me want September 1st to get here quickly. I loved the Hollows so I've been looking forward to this series. As always Ms. Harrison creates a fascinating tale with its own believable world. ( )

Intriguing setup

Intriguing setup for a new book. I liked Silas and Peri, so I'm interested in seeing more of them. The tone change between the short and the preview, from school pranks and creative use of talent to serious corruption and intrigue was a little jarring, and I hope I like the book as well as I liked the short.

Interesting world...I'll definitely read The Drafter. ( )

2 stars for me.... It was an okay read. It's not really for me. Silas has a PhD and a senior getting yet another degree, yet he talks and acts like he is in high school. The plot is bizarre and I just wasn't that into it. ( )
