From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Richard Bard comes the next highly anticipated Brainrush thriller, a mind-gripping action adventure that spans three continents, and two books: Everlast and Ephemeral.
A gifted boy forced to grow up too fast... A father who will do anything to protect him... A madman bent on destroying them both.
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.

"I need book 6...quick!"
This is part two of the Everlast duology and follows on from book one without missing a beat. It is quite the thriller ride, 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.
Bray really did out-do himself with the range of characters and his performance was seamless. He has really made these books a joy to listen too.
If you haven't listened to any of this series, I recommend starting with Brainrush and offer this advice - fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.
Only complaint is it feels like I paid to finish the story that didn't end with the previous book. I don't mind buying a sequel... Did it here gladly 3 times. I don't appreciate paying two times for one book. I'll wait before buying book 6 when it comes out to see if it is going to keep happening.
"A spellbinding thriller and stunning cliffhanger"
The story, the characters, the intrigue, tension, and the narrator combine to make this fifth listen in the Brainrush series just as captivating as the previous four. I could not put it down.
Too many to pick just one...but the ending.....cliff hanger! Very much looking forward to the next book.
The release of the innocent children.
I discovered Richard Bard quite by accident...purchasing the first book in this series, Brainrush, in a sale...because it was read by a favourite narrator, R. C. Bray. I was hooked from page one and listened my way through all five in very short order.
"I Knew It! 1 more coming"
Superb crafting of a story from different perspectives leaving us with a frustrating ending. Not so much a cliffhanger but a 'OhMan!' Good job Richard and RC. Do I really have to wait 6 months for book 6? I enjoy the suspense and mystery with a little superhuman or extraterrestrial entwined and look for more even after the last book. You hear me Mr. Bard! I want my mini!
Enjoy all the technical stuff & gadgets. Like the continuation of characters and the adding of new ones, especially stunt actors
"Unbelievable thrill after thrill!"
I enjoyed Ephemeral as much as the first trilogy. Richard Bard is an amazing writer and I can't wait for the follow up to this duology. RC Bray is a fantastic narrator. If you want an exciting, edge of your seat thriller, this is it!
"he does it again !!!"
yes , because this brilliant narrator brings it to life
YES!!! so exciting
I can't say they where all great
yes , very hard to stop listening
normally I listen to audio books before I go to sleep, because it calms me and stops me speculating on daily things, but this series just kept me awake , because of all the suspence.
I Love this series... such a fast paced, action packed, thriller .
a well deserved 4½ stars from me
"I love, but...Too much repeating sentences."
things are said over and over to remind readers. it is a short book, we remember what was said. try to develop more into how to word things.
