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.

Loveable Hudson

I just love Hudson so much, he is one of my favorite characters in the series. And with my afore mentioned sentence if you haven't guessed, this book focus is on Hudson and Seb (YaY). Their love story is bitter sweet, so have tissues nearby, there are some rollercoaster moments.
And I got to say I'm loving the bad guy Wolf too, I don't know what it is but since he was first introduced he was such a gentleman, and yeah he did terrible things to our lovable Dex, I'll just blame it on Charlie Cochet she made such a lovable bad guy... Plus the narrator gives him such a sweet alluring accent.
And you find out a little secret about Wolf too..... Psssst... Tony Montana's Bad Guy speech comes to mind when I think about Wolf.....

Third’s Hurrah!

The one problem I had with this is the narrator’s performance of Hudson, the take on his speech accent was annoying. I still loved he story but winced every time Hudson was talking! The rest was fine.

Love Overcomes All

This was a little harder for me to get into compared to the other THIRDS books. Hudson was just a bundle of silly angst and put Sebastian Hobbs through hell. But the other characters and the humor of the series helped keep me entertained and I just exercised my suspension of disbelief. I ended up enjoying the book.

Love the series

In order to fully understand this sequel then you will need to start from the beginning. All the stories are connected and each book tied into the other, now with this book I have patiently waiting to hear it but I will say I was thrown off by Sebs voice in this book reminds me of his mute brother Hobbs.However still a great story and loving the series

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.
