Charlie is a great writer and – as always – really has a way with combining action, romance and humor.
I’m not a big fan of “reunion” romances – I like that initial spark too much – but I did love that after all this time our guys finally get their chance to be together.
Of course, there is other drama going on – and more danger - as well as some more Dex/Sloane interactions – and a furthering of the overall mystery/arc.
For fans of the series, this is a must, and while I bet you could read this as a standalone, I think you’d miss a lot.
I'm glad the series is wrapping up, however, because we are starting to ease into the land of soap opera (i.e. people coming back from the "dead) and I think we've just about done all there needs to be done with this.
Mark Westfield is the voice for this series, so I can’t really add much to this review that hasn’t already been said.
I thought his English accent was fine and I enjoy his little “extras” that he throws in to keep the narration fresh and engaging.
I still sometimes struggle to appreciate his intonation, as he does seem to end each sentence in the same way, regardless of the emotion being portrayed – but after awhile I don’t notice it.
Overall, I’d give this 4 of 5 stars.

Ms. Cochet wastes her fan’s time in this story of Dr. Hudson Colbourn and Sebastian Hobbs tragic love affair that sours from drama to tele-novella. Ms. Cochet tortures her star-crossed lovers with set back and reunion followed by another setback and reunion followed by another setback and reunion that you feel manipulated unnecessarily and lose trust in the author. The Thirds series has lost its way into putrid tragic claptrap with an infinitesimal amount of action. Don’t buy this book. It will put you off the entire series.
5 stars for book 9 in the THIRDS audio series. This is Seb and Hudson's story. Mark Westfield is yet again an exceptional narrator and really gave this story another dimension. I just love the way he speaks and could listen to him all day.
7 years a go Seb and Hudson were in a happy relationship. Seb had marked Hudson as his mate and was planning to ask Hudson to marry him. On the day he planned to ask him a rogue shooter aimed fire at Hudson and Seb jumped in to save him which resulted in the tragic death of a young boy. This brought in to question their ability to work together within THIRDS as bonded mates and it cost Seb his position in Destructive Delta which led to his subsequent transfer to another team and also cost them their relationship.
7 years later and these two are still separated due to the grief from that day but also Hudson's insane stubborn-ness. Through the first 50% of this story I just wanted to shake them both particularly Hudson but they do eventually find their way back to each other and then things move quite quickly from there!
As with all the THIRDS books there is plenty of action and drama and plenty of love! Seb is so sweet and I loved how he unconditionally looks out for and loves Hudson even when they're not together. I loved catching up with all the characters from the other books in this story. You really shouldn't listen to these books on their own, they need to be read in order to make the most of this brilliant world and all the characters that have been created.
Cannot wait for the next audio book instalment in this fabulous series!
There were numerous errors in the story...not sure whether they were down to Charlie or Dreamspinner [but I suspect the latter], the most annoying of which was using the word 'ay' instead of 'eh'. And of course, we have the perennial American habit of assuming all of us 'Brits' come from London [clue...most of us don't], and have a cut glass upper class English accent instead of a regional one [which Hudson would probably have had coming from Kent]...you know cos all Americans come from New York don't they?? 😏 Unfortunately, some errors also crept into this recording and despite Mark Westfield's best efforts, I could only give his attempt at an English accent 6 or 7 out of 10 I'm sorry to say.
