Description

THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn are as much in love now as they were nearly seven years ago when a tragic event on the job destroyed their relationship. The two drift together only to be pulled apart time and time again. When Hudson draws the interest of dangerous enemies, both within and outside the organization, Seb wants nothing more than to protect the man who still means everything to him.

As life-and-death events, an uncertain future, and startling truths draw Hudson and Seb to each other yet again, they must make a choice: trust their love and take strength from what they share, or lose what matters most...for good this time.

Great for the series fans

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.


Audio


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.

Don’t Buy this Thirds Book

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.

'A' rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.25
Story: 4.5

You know, after nine books in this series, there's really not a lot I can say for a review. You're either reading this series and loving it as much as me or not...LOL.

This is NOT a series that you can just jump in and read. You need to read the whole series together. Every book feeds into the story of the next one. And even though this book is about a different main couple...Seb and Hudson...you still need to have read the whole series to understand what's going on.

I loved that this story though is focused on Seb and Hudson. The bulk of their backstory happened before the series started. They're marked mates...something that's a rarity just because marked mates are looked down upon in this society. But even though they have this incredible bond to one another, they haven't been together the entire series because of a mission that went wrong. Guilt pulled them apart and the bittersweetness of the two of them has been present throughout the entire series.

As a result, I couldn't wait for this book. It didn't disappoint. And even more...it brought up some interesting plot twists that I can't wait to see how they play out. Wow...so much I didn't see coming, but I loved it!

5 star narration

Time after time Charlie Cochet creates such amazing stories filled with non-stop action, intrigue and romance, while narrator Mark Westfield makes that world all the more richer; Darkest Hour Before Dawn, the ninth book in the THIRDS series is no exception. You definitely do not want to read this without having read all the other books in this awesome series.

Mark Westfield delivers us back into the world of the THIRDS agents, namely Sebastian Hobbs and Dr. Hudson Colburn.

While the story is filled with tons of action and suspense the author really gives readers a more intimate view of one of my favorite couples, Seb and Hudson.

These two men belong to each other. Hudson is marked and truly mated to Seb. A tragedy in their past breaks them apart and throughout the series we see them dance around each other. In this installment we get an inside view into the how’s and why’s of their relationship.

I really enjoy Seb and Hudson interacting. Seeing the push and pull between the two and how these guys truly ‘pine’ for each other. I love seeing how close Hudson still is with the Hobbs family, especially his relationship with Seb’s Mom and Dad. With Westfield’s narration I could feel how important and emotional being connected to them is for Hudson. Hudson also frustrates me with his back and forth because it’s so plain to see how much Seb really cares for him. But it’s nice to see them circle around each other and slowly realize the depth of their love for one another.

Darkest Hour Before Dawn is not all romance, there is definitely plenty of action and intrigue going on throughout the story. The timing is perfect and the action scenes fleshed out.

Mark Westfield is definitely at his best when narrating fight scenes and confrontations and with the many revelations in this installment his narration kept me listening and wanting more.

I can’t wait to see what’s next for our favorite fellow agents.

Fantastic Story, Mark Westfield is Amazing!

In this ninth book in the THIRDS series, Darkest Hour Before Dawn, Charlie Cochet finally gives us the whole story of Seb and Hudson...creating a must read for fans who have followed this series from the start!

There are some great details to clarify past events, and this edition also serves to explain why some of the characters in the series are moving between law enforcement agencies. Of course Cochet still serves up all the action, sex, and humor we expect in a THIRDS novel, and narrated by Mark Westfield no one will be disappointed.

Throughout previous books we get snippets of the story of Seb and Hudson, so it is nice to get the dirty details on why they broke up, why they won’t get back together, and why their bond is so strong to start with.

They have so much history together and Cochet does a wonderful job making it feel like they’ve been the main characters in this series all along.

Much of the story centers around explaining the relationships and backgrounds of the main characters, Seb and Hudson. Seb is such a sweet, strong guy and I love getting to know him better. Hearing stories about him growing up with his brother's, Rafe and Ethan, and all the mischief they created is wonderful. It’s also important for the future of this series to learn more about the strong friendship he has with his partner, Dom. Additionally there is a host of info on Hudson’s upbringing and an explanation about his closeness with Seb’s family. All of this is particularly insightful if these guys are going to take over as the main players of the THIRDS series.

There’s never any doubt about the chemistry between Seb and Hudson, every time they cross paths in earlier stories their attraction is intense.

These two work really well together as Seb manages to be both sweetly romantic and officially takes over as the best dirty talker of the series (sorry Cael, we have a new champion).

There are several really exciting and dramatic scenes in Darkest Hour Before Dawn which help to show the dynamic of the team members of Theta Destructive. We get a good idea about the current state of New York City and what THIRDS and other law enforcement agencies are up against.

Darkest Hour Before Dawn is full of so many chuckle worthy moments made more enjoyable thanks to Mark Westfield’s flawless narration.

My favorites are Ash pondering the planning of Dex’s bachelor party and Sloane having to explain to Dex what a ‘Code Fuschia’ means.

Expect some seriously freaky events too. Like the reveal of who Wolf is, which caused chills up my spine. Obviously we all expected it, but it’s still a shock and the way Cochet builds up to it is so skillfully done.

We do get a few teasers about what might be coming with TIN and more explanation about what the organization can do and what they’re up against. I can hardly wait to see how Charlie Cochet pulls it all together, especially with Dex and Sloane branching off into their own series. As much as I thoroughly enjoyed Darkest Hour Before Dawn I’m excited for the undoubtedly explosive episodes to come!

Wonderful! Just simply wonderful

I have been wanting to read/listen to Seb and Hudson's story since the first time they were mentioned as being together and this story did not disappoint. You can literally feel the love between the two of them that has withstood so much hurt and pain. There is still the humor that you expect when dealing with the THIRDS but to finally have Hudson and Seb happy and together was an amazing journey. Mark Westfield continues to do a wonderful job with giving each character their own identity and brings the story to life in a wonderful way.

Amazing Series

Okay I'm not gonna lie, I read it twice in a row before posting my review. Another amazingly awesome book in this series. I was so happy to see Seb and Hudson get their HEA as they so totally deserved it after all they've gone through. I broke down in tears when Hudson told Seb he wanted to come home. I can't say anything else about the book as I don't want to spoil it. Full review once it's released.

I did not see that coming!

This is book 9 in a series and they are best read in order. I have been waiting for Hudson's story ever since he was introduced and I was not disappointed. This series is so full of tough Alpha men that Hudson being a mild-mannered nerd, yet not too wimpy is refreshing plus I love a man with an accent. I've been waiting for Seb and Hudson's story and wasn't disappointed. And the cover? Whew!

Charlie Cochet has created so many awesome characters in this series, each with their own inner turmoils but tough with big hearts. In Darkest Hour Before Dawn, we veer off Dex and Sloane's team and have Sebastian. This story is a beautiful love story since these two were mated and torn apart 7 years back by a terrible work-related accident. There is also lots of action and several surprising twits. I did not see the end coming and can't wait for the next book.
The only issue I had is I would have liked more Sloane and Dex, but they are in the book and what we get is awesome!

These books are well-written and great to read but if you get a chance to hear them in narration do so. Mark Westfield lends voice to each character and I love is British accent for Hudson. I also love the sound effects he uses like the voices over the coms and phones.

If you like shifters, special ops, covert operations, a sweet love story, twists and some hot man-sex you will definitely like this book!
I highly recommend this series.
