Publisher's Summary

From Wall Street Journal best-selling author Richard Bard comes the next highly anticipated Brainrush thriller, a mind-gripping action thriller that spans three continents and two books - Everlast and Ephemeral.
In Amsterdam, a visionary scientist is laying the groundwork for a cybernetic life-extension project that will transfer individual consciousness to a personalized avatar. Halfway around the world, his brilliant grandson is secretly planning to use the same technology to infiltrate the world's most secure networks. But the scientific advances necessary to perfect the brain-to-computer interface are slow in coming, too slow for the aging founder of the Everlast foundation - who may die before realizing his dream of immortality - and too slow for his ruthless grandson, who will stop at nothing to attain the recognition that is his birthright.
Caught in the middle are Jake Bronson and his seven-year-old son, Alex, whose combined mental gifts might provide the key to leapfrogging the impasse.
Everlast (Book One): When Jake's family and closest friends are simultaneously abducted in a globally coordinated kidnapping scheme, he races across two continents in his search for them, unaware his hostage son and teenage siblings have crash-landed in the jungles of South China, where they must find every ounce of their courage and wits to survive the wilds and escape the ruthless drug lord who is hot on their heels. Can a seven-year-old boy learn to kill to save his family?

Bronson family fan!

Loved the brainrush series, and love the new duology so far! Such great characters, it's hard not to love them from the beginning! Read brainrush first, you won't be disappointed! Excellent narration, too, and I'm picky about that! If I have to listen to a book, the narrator better enhance the experience not ruin it! Well done here :)

A thrill ride - with heart.

This audio book is a thrill ride, it's fast-paced and it will have you laughing, crying, gasping, shouting at the audible app (everyone does that, right?) and even cursing both Richard Bard and R.C. Bray.

The Duology is set 8 years after the events that happen in Beyond Judgement. Jake Bronson and his son are the primary focus although all of Jake's friends and family are back for the ride. As we've come to know, Bard always includes an enemy you want to see defeated and this book is no different. The writing sets such a fantastic pace that once you start it is really difficult to stop, add to that the brilliant performance that Bray gives and it was beyond difficult to hit that pause button.

Good but a little slower than previous

Well narrated by R C Bray as usual but the story was a little weaker than I expected. I enjoyed it but I may give up on the series ?

Shame it only tells a fraction of the story!

Shame this book only tells a part of the overall story forcing the reader to buy more books to find out what’s this book is all about!!
