A friend of mine told me I had to try this series. It's something that took me a while to get to, but when I did I can promise you I wasn't sorry.
Hell & High Water is the first book in the THIRDS series. It's a very strong start to the series and really got me into Charlie Cochet's writing, which I love. It introduced me to some amazing and wonderful characters who I now adore.
My favorite thing about this book has to be Dex. He's the type of guy I love. Funny, with a good heart and cares deeply about his family. Also, he does the right thing. All these reasons (and more) makes him one of my favorite characters to date. I could not imagine this series without Dex.
Hell & High Water introduces us to quite a few characters and we learn about THIRDS and Therians. I worried it would be too much for me, but it really wasn't. I think Charlie Cochet does an amazing job introducing everything and everyone.
The grief in this was a little difficult for me in places. Especially Sloane's grief.
I'm really glad I found this series and I'm excited to see what will happen next!
About the Book
When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences—and the media frenzy—aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed. Instead, his adoptive father—a sergeant at the Therian-Human Intelligence Recon Defense Squadron otherwise known as the THIRDS—pulls a few strings, and Dex gets recruited as a Defense Agent.
Dex is determined to get his life back on track and eager to get started in his new job. But his first meeting with Team Leader Sloane Brodie, who also happens to be his new jaguar Therian partner, turns disastrous. When the team is called to investigate the murders of three HumaniTherian activists, it soon becomes clear to Dex that getting his partner and the rest of the tightknit team to accept him will be a lot harder than catching the killer—and every bit as dangerous.
