In a matter of days, Dex has been kidnapped, tortured, killed, revived, become half Therian, offered the chance to become a spy, and accepted a proposal to marry his jaguar Therian boyfriend, Sloane Brodie. It’s been a lot to take in, and although Dex is still trying to wrap his head around everything that’s happened, he knows he has to move forward.
After the events of Smoke & Mirrors, Dex and Sloane find themselves in one of the most frightening situations of all: revealing the truth to their Destructive Delta family. When the dust settles, nothing will ever be the same, and it’s up to Dex to prove that in the face of change, the one thing that will always remain the same is family.
I was unsure after Smoke & Mirrors, book 7, if Cochet would continue this series or start off a new one. I’m thrilled the author is keeping up the THIRDS. Book 8, Thick & Thin, is more of an intermediate book. It’s the lull between book 7 and book 9 which comes out in April. But don’t think by lull that nothing happens.
Dex has much to explain to his team about what’s happened to him and of course, life interferes while he’s doing it. I have to say, I was THRILLED that Dex didn’t trust a certain character. In Smoke & Mirrors, even though he didn’t trust her, he seemed happy with what happened at the end. In Thick & Thin, he gives his real thoughts and I LOVED them. Watch out, lieutenant, Dex is watching.
There’s more than one murder in this book and only hints are given about them that I’m sure will be addressed in future books.
Loved that Wolf was back. For a bad guy, he’s one of my favorite characters ever. I hope he’s around for time to come. In the next installment: Darkest Hour Before Dawn, we get Seb & Hudson – that’s going to be great! But I hope Cochet will return to Dex & Sloane in the book after that. While I love reading about the extra characters, I absolutely LOVE Dex. To me his weirdness makes the THIRDS. Not to mention the fact that I’m interested to watch as his body changes. Just where will Cochet take this hybrid?
Things are changing for all of Destructive Delta and it’s going to be fun to watch the entire team as they take on new duties.
Looking forward to all the wonderful, exciting, dangerous storylines Cochet’s got whirling around in that THIRDS ether. Hoping we hear more of Dr. Scotty the Hottie.
