A collection of Flash Fiction written in response to prompts submitted by Thirds Series readers. 

THIRDS stands for Therian-Human Intelligence, Recon, Defense Squadron. The military style agency was established by the government for equal rights law enforcement for all species.

THIRDS – Beyond the Books, Flash Fiction Vol. 1 features primary romance characters Sloane Brodie, Team leader, Jaguar Therian and Dexter J. Daley “Dex, Rookie, Human.  Book 1Hell & High Water, Book 2Blood & Thunder, Book 3Rack & Ruin, Book 4Rise & Fall.

Calvin Summers, Sniper, Human and Ethan Hobbs “Hobbs”, Demolitions expert, Tabby Tiger Therian are featured in Book 6Catch a Tiger by the Tail.

A sneak peek at Austen Payne, Squadron Specialist Agent, Cheetah Therian and Osmond Zachary “Zach”, Brown bear Therian, opening scene in Rack & Ruin, Austen gets hurt by a member of the Coalition.  Austen is in hiding and hurt, so Sloane asks Agent Osmund Zachary to protect Austen. These characters will be featured in a future book.

Overall, THIRDS – Beyond the Books, Flash Fiction Vol. 1 is somewhat tedious to read, several of the numerous prompts are repetitive. The THIRDS series details Action, Comedy and Romance with an in depth character descriptions and background. Readers who have not read the series may have a hard time engaging with the characters. I did enjoy the stories featuring the agents in their animal forms.

All royalties from this book will be donated to the Big Cat Rescue.
