Because I obviously live under a rock on the internet, I didn't even know about the existence of THIRDS Thursdays or the THIRDS flash fiction, until recently. And when I discovered them, I thought, for sure, there was no way I'd find them all and get to read them. But Charlie Cochet, being the Goddess she is, has put them all into a collection! I also noticed that there is another Beyond the Books collection coming out later this year, and that makes me beyond happy!
The snapshots of various times and events found in THIRDS Beyond the Books is bound to make any fan of the series giddy with excitement. I pretty much curled up with this book, and growled any time anyone got too close to me, because -- THIRDS!!! Time to read! I was not disappointed at all. This is a fantastic collection.
I do have some favorite moments, like 6 year old Dex meeting Cael for the first time -- my heart melted. And Calvin and Hobbs first meeting -- Calvin was truly a superhero. Oh, and when Sloane accompanies Dex to a thing where he has to read a story to a bunch of Therian kindergartners - priceless! Or, a peek into the early relationship of Seb and Hudson. We even get the first meeting of Cael and Ash - from each of their perspectives - Cael was embarrassingly clumsy. It was rather adorable to see him so flustered. I could just keep going, and going!
So, if you are a fan of this series, definitely buy this book. Not only is it more than worth the buck you'll pay for it, and I can pretty much guarantee you'll love it, but all royalties from this book will be donated to the Big Cat Rescue. So buy it. Read it. And enjoy every extra moment of insight into, not only main characters lives, but some secondary characters, too!
ARC of THIRDS Beyond the Books, Vol. 1 was generously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. (But I pre-ordered it anyway, because it's for a good cause and I can't get enough of these guys.)
