Blurb: Calvin Summers and Ethan Hobbs have been best friends since childhood, but somewhere along the line, their friendship evolved into something more. With the Therian Youth Center bombing, Calvin realizes just how short life can be and no longer keeps his feelings for his best friend a secret. Unfortunately, change is difficult for Ethan; most days he does well to deal with his Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety. Calvin’s confession adds a new struggle for Ethan, one he fears might cost him the friendship that’s been his whole world for as long as he can remember.
As partners and Defense Agents at the THIRDS, being on Destructive Delta is tough at the best of times, but between call-outs and life-threatening situations, Calvin and Ethan not only face traversing the challenges of their job, but also working toward a future as more than friends.

Review – Audio: Mark Westfield is still doing a great job of bringing the THIRDS series to life. I’ve read each book before I listened to each audio, and I never lose interest the second time around. I have to say though that his delivery is a little too slow for me, and I have to listen on 1.25x speed. I think it’s probably because I don’t need the performance to be drawn out, so I’ll put that speed on me.
Mark performs each character admirably, but his Dex character is still my favorite, even when he is not the main character. I admit that his female voices are commendable but also kind of funny. I can’t ding the narrator for not pulling off the female, Hispanic voice perfectly, but it’s not really an issue and besides a couple chuckles here and there I’m never pulled out of the story.
But, this is Calvin and Ethan’s story. I love both of these guys and the narrator’s performance makes me love them even more. The ending though…the entire final 2 hours really…just killed me. I am now marking my calendar until the next THIRDS book is released…and fortunately that’s right around the corner. I need to read that one so that I can jump on the next audio once that’s released, as well.
So, I am happy to report the narrator performed another outstanding installment and hopefully he remains the narrator for future installments. I can’t imagine anyone else trying to walk in his THIRDS shoes.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
