Review: I’ve said it before and I will say it again: THIRDS Beyond the Books is a Grade A, first rate collection of awesome fan service. Charlie Cochet expanded her beloved characters from the THIRDS series at the fans’ behest, online first and then in Volume One, and it was fantastic. Volume Two is no exception.
This is the second set of THIRDS Thursday stories, and there are more to come. To date, the author is also continuing to write more as she continues the main series, and a second series involving Dex, Sloane and the TIN is forthcoming.
These stories were all once posted online, on Charlie Cochet’s website, but have now been gathered in two volumes for the fans’ enjoyment, not to mention the proceeds going to a wonderful cause.
If you’ve not read the main series books, I strongly suggest you bring up Dreamspinner’s site and grab the series before starting this book. The story prompts are from each book out so far, so there are spoilers for the entire series in these companion books.
The second volume contains more of the core group, mostly Dex and Sloane, but the others also make an appearance. The author also expands to include Lou and Bradley, and more of Hudson and Seb. I still have a preference for Ash and Cael, collectively called Cash by the fans, but I really enjoyed seeing all the side pieces bring the storylines in tighter. I hadn’t realized just how many clues there were to tying all the novels in together, but after a recent re-read of all the main books and these two extras, much of what I thought I had missed was right in front of me. I am ready and waiting for the next book and series involving this wonderfully detailed and exciting -verse by Charlie Cochet.
Thank you, thank you, Ms. Cochet for sharing your time and talent, and for indulging the whims of your fans. It’s been an awesome experience.
If you love THIRDS, then donate to the worthy cause and own these wonderful additions to the series.
