Summary

The highly anticipated series finale to the number one Wall Street Journal best seller Publishers Weekly called "a terrifically entertaining thriller!"

In this conclusion to Richard Bard's popular Brainrush series, Jake Bronson's family and friends face their biggest threat ever. The startling challenges revealed in No Refuge (book six) are coming to a head, and the team must wrest every resource available to them in hopes of preventing a terror-driven cataclysm unlike anything America has seen.

But the menace from within America's borders pales by comparison to the global threat revealed to eight-year-old Alex Bronson in a series of otherworldly visions. And Alex isn't the only one targeted by the mind-bending revelations.

The stakes are higher than ever. The fates of America and the world hang in the balance, and Jake Bronson's family and friends must risk everything to tip the scales against evil.

An international thriller with soul. Ideal listening for fans of Michael Crichton, Clive Cussler, James Rollins, Marcus Sakey, Michael Grumley, Brad Thor, Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and Vince Flynn.

Excellent series

I purchased the entire series after listening to books 1-3. The characters got under my skin, the pace and plot twists were fun, the use of tech was believable. Great performance by R.C. Bray - who was worryingly believable as all the characters both male and female.

Brain Rush Series

I loved this series! The author does a fantastic job of building the characters and adding equally important new ones, which enhance the story line and give it broader dimensions. The narrator is spot on with each of the many characters, be they children, or adults. His ability with accents makes it easy to recognize each character as the story moves along. I will be listening to more by both this author and narrator.

Excellent!

This is a fitting end to riveting series. Very well written and expertly narrated. Richard Bard and R. C. Bray together are unbelievably effective at drawing you into their world and making you feel as though you're in the story. The villains are believable and although they irk you, you understand their point of view. The good guys are everyday people and you struggle along with them to do what's right and bring about a permanent and final solution.

Brainrush

What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The exceptional voice quality and range of R. C. Bray’s performance made the book much more understandable and exciting!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

For the series: America has a new superhero. Jake Bronson!

Brainrush

This was the best series I have read in quite some time. I couldn't wait to get some place quiet to read and escape into the adventures of the next scene. The story line was believable and easy to follow.This was the first time reading a series of Richard Bard's and look forward to reading another one.

Amazing Ending to an Amazing Series

Great series overall. This book tied up all the loose ends, got everything settled and was a great end to the series.

And as usual, R. C. Bray did a fantastic job narrating. I can honestly say over half my audible collection is narrated by him.
