Sequel to Against the Grain
THIRDS: Book Six
Calvin Summers and Ethan Hobbs have been best friends since childhood, but somewhere along the line, their friendship evolved into something more. With the Therian Youth Center bombing, Calvin realizes just how short life can be and no longer keeps his feelings for his best friend a secret. Unfortunately, change is difficult for Ethan; most days he does well to deal with his selective mutism and social anxiety. Calvin's confession adds a new struggle for Ethan, one he fears might cost him the friendship that's been his whole world for as long as he can remember.
As partners and Defense Agents at the THIRDS, being on Destructive Delta is tough at the best of times, but between call-outs and life-threatening situations, Calvin and Ethan not only face traversing the challenges of their job, but also working toward a future as more than friends.

Calvin Summers and Ethan Hobbs
Definitely one of my favorites in the series despite the cliffhanger ending.
I absolutely loved the relationship growth and dynamics of everyone in the story. Even though the focus was on Calvin and Ethan, I loved that Ash and Cael, Sloan and Dex, and even Ethan's brothers, got some good page time.
All in all I loved it, but more so because of Mark Westfield's narration. He just narrates this series perfectly. Sure, Charlie Cochet writes the memorable, and downright wonderful characters...but Westfield brings them to life.
I can hardly wait for book 7!
Mark Westfield is still doing a great job of bring
One of the things I love most about Calvin and Ethan was the fact that they have unflinchingly had each others backs since childhood. Ethan is a big, strong, tiger therian whose strength and fierceness protects Calvin physically, whereas Calvin uses his heart and words to protect Ethan mentally and emotionally. These two, no matter what adversity throws at them, are solid.
For this installment, Ethan, as his internal debates and dialogue are heartrending, but his Dex character is still my ultimate favorite, even when he is not the main character. I admit that his female voices are commendable but also kind of funny. I can’t ding the narrator for not pulling off the female, Hispanic voice perfectly, but it’s not really an issue and besides a couple chuckles here and there I’m never pulled out of the story.
Ethan and his brothers reconciling.
Mark Westfield is still doing a great job of bringing the THIRDS series to life. I’ve read each book before I listened to each audio, and I never lose interest the second time around. I have to say though that his delivery is a little too slow for me, and I have to listen on 1.25x speed. I think it’s probably because I don’t need the performance to be drawn out, so I’ll put that speed on me.
