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.

    Hell & High Water was a fun read with a decent storyline and a satisfactory dose of smut (which by the way was surprising because I wasn't expecting there to be any). I am aware that it is a comic adaptation of a full-length novel of the same name and probably, it would have made more sense to read this after reading the actual book because obviously a comic adaptation can't include everything from the book and was most likely missing some detailed explanations or scenes that would have contribu Hell & High Water was a fun read with a decent storyline and a satisfactory dose of smut (which by the way was surprising because I wasn't expecting there to be any).

Regardless, I wasn't in the mood to take up yet another romance novel. I am as it is having a hard time finishing the ones on my "currently reading" shelf. Guess, it's just been a bit too much of the romance genre for me lately. (view spoiler)[hehehehe (hide spoiler)] And I am sort of glad that I chose to read this instead of the book because I personally feel, with comics/graphic novels/ mangas, the book can turn out decent even if with a mediocre plot. Because there is a lot of visual appeal to compensate for a lack of an extraordinary plot. Moreover, I felt that the graphics made the romance also easier. Like I could clearly imagine me rolling my eyes at certain scenes if I was reading the text version of it but for some reason, it wasn't so with the graphic version. Graphics always make me more tolerant of the classic cheesy tropes. However, I really do not mean to be presumptuous by insinuating that the novel won't be that good because well, I haven't read it. It might actually be pretty nice, at least that's what the ratings indicate and I might actually try it. Maybe. But definitely at a later date. Right now, I have way too many books in line and I would really appreciate a break from romance. As far as the characters are concerned, I really liked Dex. He is interesting, carefree, overly gregarious. It's hard to not like him. Solane was alright as well. But other than Dex, I didn't particularly feel much for the rest of the characters. The romance was again okayish for me. It wasn't strictly the only focus because simultaneously there is a case being solved by the team. Still, didn't feel any major "feels" as such with romance. Or any particular excitement about the mystery. It was good because the art was good and I was enjoying the visual charm of the book. And all in all, it was an enjoyable read.

    The characters are so weird, the story is poorly developed and the art is umm jarring sometimes. I completed it but I was neither emotionally invested nor cared for the story.

I started THIRDS back in 2014 and had been following the ebooks ever since. After learning about the comic I purchased all the audiobooks to refresh my memory. Once the book arrived in the post I got to enjoy the story once again and loved ever minute of it. Sure, a lot of scenes got chopped up, cut out and altered a little bit but I understand that to make a graphic novel these things happen. I enjoyed the comic for what it was: an adaptation of the novel. I only wish that the comic would continue with the books. That would be amazing! So happy and will be following Son Gaepi's releases.

    I have VERY mixed feelings about this manga. I'm giving 4-4.5 stars for the actual adaptation. Going from a book medium to an art/manga medium can be a challenge as the storyline has to be cut down to fit into a (usually) 100-200 page comic. Hell & High Water was certainly larger and longer than I expected it to be which was great as we got more of the original story covered! Plus, what was covered made perfect sense for someone who may have not read the novels. I'm giving 3 stars for the art...wh I have VERY mixed feelings about this manga.

Plus, what was covered made perfect sense for someone who may have not read the novels. I'm giving 3 stars for the art...while I like the cover (after getting used to seeing it for months), the character art is so sketchy and more like line-art than what I've come to expect a finished manga to look like. It's sharp rather than more fluid, which I realize is a style choice but I'm really not a fan. Also, there are waaaay too many chibi and silly versions of the characters. We hardly ever see them with more serious expressions. Dex is of course a ridiculous character who's so full of energy and spirit. But one of the great things about Dex is his hidden depth of emotion. Dex feels so much and can get enormously angry, upset, or focused. I saw almost none of that version of Dex...the text would read seriously and Dex would have a serious face for one panel and then it'd be back to the goofy looks. I know Dex is a goof but come on! Finally, the logistics of the physical manga...I'm talking about the translations and photoshopping. I'm giving it 2 stars and that's a bit generous. Translation is fine for the text/quotes but omg why did none of the Korean sound effects get scrubbed and translated properly?? Even the illegal fan subs of manga scans online do better work than this. I KNOW people know what an onomatopoeia is so why didn't they use any?? I've found this same thing happen in other manga adaptations from Dreamspinner press (some more ridiculous than others). Overall I'm really glad this exists and I hope it gets others into the series, but I wish more effort would have been put into making a tighter translation. 4 Stars

    Even if I still prefer the book, I love that they made a manga of it! It was a really cool idea and I really enjoyed it! I hope that they will do for the whole serie ...

As for this graphic novel/magna edition, well it is brilliant! I'm talking HOLY HANNAH BATMAN! THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE! Brilliant! To be honest, I've never read magna before, I've read many Star Wars comic book collections which are often labeled "graphic novels" but never actual magna. I've seen pictures and screenshots from some so I knew what to expect as for the artwork(and to all those who think "comic books" aren't artwork, well you haven't actually read any because they have to tell a story in short dialog and miniaturized pictures so it truly is artwork). There is so much that goes on in Hell & High Water I was unsure how they would be able to capture the true nature of the journey but you know what? Charlie Cochet did it! I can't imagine how much time and energy went into choosing the moments that best told the story, being able to "cut things out" for brevity or space but it works. As much as I'd love to see the whole THIRDS universe in magna form, I know it's a one off because well, I expect she'd probably not get anything else done for at least a couple of years if she tried to accomplish it. One last note: I'm not familiar with the illustrator, Son Gaepi, but HOLY MOLY! Amazing work, really captured Dex, Sloane, and the whole Delta gang pretty darn perfectly. Hell & High Water Audiobook Review October 2019: I'm not going to say I forgot just how amazing Dex, Sloane, and the whole Delta gang was because let's face it: how could anyone forget them even way back in the beginning? The humor, the wit, the danger, the heat is still absolutely off the charts and Mark Westfield brings that all to life beautifully. Obviously there are different voices for different characters but what I really loved was the added elements that showcased the communication devices, the inflections that technology does to one's voice. It was these little things that really made Hell & High Water stand out in the audiobook department that isn't often used in other stories. I can't say anything more that wasn't in my original review other than I still love THIRDS and can't wait to listen to the rest and look forward to future re-visits. Original Overall ebook Review for Books #1-4 October 2017: I'm going to start by saying that some of my most trusted book lover BFFs have been singing the praises of Charlie Cochet's THIRDS for ages now, I've even had the first two in the series on my Kindle for nearly three years. With it coming up on October, I decided it was a perfect time to give it a read for my paranormal posts. Simply put: THIRDS is BRILLIANT! When I started Hell & High Water I thought, hmmm Dex is interesting. Talk about an understatement. As a high school graduate of the Class of '91, I grew up with the music of the 80's, now I can't say they ever filled me with the "drop everything, sing, & dance" adrenaline rush that Dex brings to the team, but it made me smile every time he starts singing. As a life-long devoted Star Wars geek, I really loved Sloane's closeted geek side that he shares with Dex. As for the mystery side of the series, to say it had me on the edge of my seat from cover to cover may sound cliche but its no less true. I won't touch on the plot as I don't do spoilers but let me say I could not put it down, when I finished one I immediately started the next. The characters just blend together so well, even when they are at odds, as in Dex and Ash, he is not a fan of Dex's fire or his love of everything 80s. As for the romance, well lets just say that its off the charts and the chemistry between Dex and Sloane is what we all hope to find. Dex, Sloane, and Destructive Delta is the paranormal equivalent of Abigail Roux's Ty, Zane, and Sidewinder. Now, I am not saying its a copy, far from it! No, what I mean is the passion, anticipation, intrigue, excitement it sparks in me is similar to how I felt with the Cut & Run series. THIRDS is most definitely an incredible, emotional roller coaster all on its own and I can't believe it took me so long to check it out because now I'm waiting on tender hooks waiting for more of Delta's adventures.

Cuando empecé a leerlo, no pillaba que la cuenta de Javi ya había hablado sobre los libros, me di cuenta fue cuando estaba buscando una imagen y me pareció el mega libro. Quedé sin palabras, en serio. La historia nos presenta a Dex, un chico adoptado por Tony Maddock. Dex tiene un pasado algo turbio al meter a su compañero a la carcel por haber matado a un niño a sangre fría, el abandono de su novio al no soportar las críticas dirigidas a Dex y las golpisas que recibió; a raíz de todo eso, es reclutado por los THRIDS. ¿Qué es la THRIDS, luisa? Vale, empecemos por partes; después que terminara la guerra de 1970, el uso de armas biológicas hizo que se expandiera un virus mortal, para ello crearon una "cura" que hacia mutar a las personas que tenían dicho virus, convirtiendose en "animales" o como se le llama, Therians. Los humanos que no fueron afectados por el virus, empezaron a temer y hubo una rebelión entre los humanos y los therians; hasta que Estados Unidos toma carta en el asunto y crea THRIDS, una organización para proteger a ambas razas, trabajando en equipo y mostran que humanos y therians pueden trabajar juntos. Dex es un chico divertido y gracioso pero cuando lo haces enojar, se enoja. Mayormente se mete con Ash. El escuadron trabaja en pareja, siendo un humano y un therian; donde a Dex le toca con Sloane, un tipo que había perdido a su pareja y no tiene buen inicio con Dex, ya que piensa que lo esta reemplazando. En fin, lo que me gusta de la historia es que no solo gira en el raro romance, sino en el trabajo, hay ciertos asesinatos que deben de averiguar y eso me gustó demasiado, todo el escuadron sabe como trabajar y mola mucho. La relación que se ve, es rara, como dije, las dos personas están rotas, uno porque perdió a su compañero y el otro porque lo abandonaron y hay heridas. Otra cosas que me hubiera gustado, es que tuviera más capítulos, 28 no son suficientes, no abarca nada, y lloro.

Il y en a quand même une que j’attendais avec impatiente et qui est finalement trop tronquée par rapport au roman et en enlève une grande partie de l’intérêt de cette scène et ce qui me plait dans ce passage de l’histoire. Dommage. Mais à part ça, l’adaptation vaut le coup et se laisse bien lire.

Just do yourself a favor and read the book series, then the graphic novel. I get that it’s nice to see how the characters would look, but it’s not worth the confusion.

    OMG! I loved this! Nothing like having one of your favorite M/M Romances in a graphic novel. So much fun to read.

As they get to know each other going out into the fields of bad Therians and threats against both Human and Therians, sparks start to fly. And so begins this beautiful love story. If you have not yet read or listened to the original book, I highly encourage you to do so. It's full of action in a world the amazing Charlie Cochet came up with. And I promise you will fall so hard for not only Dex and Sloane, but for the rest of Destructive Delta as well.

    I loved it, but it has been a while since I read a comic book and while I am not a fan of manga I was looking forward to it. So I was quite disappointed about the lack of descriptive text I am so used to. Glad to have read the book I could follow the story but it felt kind of cut down to the main story parts and the nuances that you create in your head while reading were missing. I assume it's a part of manga to go from almost realistic drawing of persons to a weird big eyes - big mouth version I loved it, but it has been a while since I read a comic book and while I am not a fan of manga I was looking forward to it.

I assume it's a part of manga to go from almost realistic drawing of persons to a weird big eyes - big mouth version to show a certain emotional stance, but it just doesn't sit well with me when the character is missing hands or other body parts. As well as the soundwords in, again I assume the artist's language. To the plus side, the sex was well drawn and I was glad no black bars or blurred squares covered the intimate areas. As the owner of the limited coloured edition I loved the step back in time when I read graphic novels by the dozen. I also loved the drawings of the Therians in their animal forms.

    Ije the Devourer of Books

    This is always a great series to read in any format but the manga version isn't all that it could be. The coloured version of the manga was a bit of a let down because the coloring was dull and looked faded, instead it should have been bright and vibrant. The artwork was just so so. In places it was hard to decipher what was going on and who was actually speaking. I think these manga versions are an excellent idea. I dont know if DSP will continue with these given their present troubles but if t This is always a great series to read in any format but the manga version isn't all that it could be.

In any case it was still great to see Dex and Sloane come to life in pictures!

    Un peu partagée par le résultat. D'un côté je trouve l'histoire vraiment très bien adaptée, une grande partie de l'histoire d'origine est reprise et le tout a vraiment du sens, même si le lecteur ne connaît pas le roman. De l'autre, le dessin, les visages notamment, reste bien souvent à l'état d'ébauche (quand ça ne part pas dans une extrême un peu chibi) qui fait que les personnages perdent en profondeur d'émotion.

    A decent adaptation of the book. It’s gets the emotions across. You can see the relationship progress mostly. I enjoyed the art. I liked seeing the interpretations of characters in comic form. Dex’s quirkiness is well represented in here. Sloane’s standoffishness and resolve to just be is also evident. Definitely worth it just for the cats. They were amazing.

    Some of my favorite moments from the novel were left out, but it was good.

    The adaptation was great and the art was beautiful. I really hope they make the rest of the books in the series into mangas.
