Publisher's Summary

On a mission to stop the Foundation from creating an army of cyborgs, wanted felon Brayden Sawyer is trapped far from his ship and crew in the last place he wants to be...Earth. With the Foundation hot on his heels, Bray must ask his family for refuge - a family who always preferred his brother Gryffin over him and kicked him out of their lives a decade ago.

When his family rejects him a second time, Bray wonders if saving Gryffin - and completing his mission - is worth it. All his life, he's been second best to his brother, a brother he never really knew. But turning his back on Gryffin is out of the question and he won't let the Foundation do to others what they've already done to him and Gryffin.

Breaking into Foundation headquarters, Bray comes face to face with the horrible truth about his brother's cyborg enhancements as well as his own modifications. And that's not all...the Foundation is set to destroy a planet of innocent people, using Gryffin as their number one weapon.

With time running out, Bray must finish what he started. Together with Garvan and his family, Bray must escape Earth with the necessary technology to save Gryffin and stop the Foundation's evil plans. But can one man stand against the all-powerful and tyrannical Foundation? If Bray can save Gryffin, he may just have a fighting chance.

    ".Perses"

    As requested i was given a review copy of this book in return for an unbiased review,I don't see the point is starting a series on book 3 so I took a chance and bought books 1 and two.That was a chance I am so so glad I took.This series is explosive,amazing I wanted more and K.A Finn and Keith Michaelson gave it to me.We have come such a long long way frem Griffin being an out law in the foundation's eyes. This book is a great addition to the series. For a short(ish) book is sure packs in a lot of different things. At different points I cried in sadness, and at others I cried in happiness and at others I laughed out loud.The narration is perfect for the series. Michaelson nails the male personas and also does a good job with voicing the females. These are two total pros who handle all their characters beautifully one by writing and creating them and the other by bringing them to life.Top notch Sci Fi.Unique perspective and story line.Outstanding

    Story
    ""Dead men don't generally have friends.""
    Any additional comments?

    This, the third book in the Nomad series, diverts from the previous protagonists of earlier stories to follow Gavin and Bray, marooned on Earth and determined somehow to escape back with the protocols and specifications of the experimentations to turn humans into cyborgs. Just two wanted men against the whole Foundation - it is never going to to be easy. And there is only one place which might offer shelter and hope: Bray's uncle's house. But Bray had abandoned his family years before, was believed by them to be dead. And his cousin is a high ranking Foundation officer

    Although not essential to have read the previous books, the background information they have supplied, both to the society and Foundation itself and to Bray's family connections, certainly adds to the understanding and enjoyment of what is happening, especially in the earlier part of the story. However, it can be read as a standalone and will still fulfill all of the excitement expected. The characterisations are very good and the dialogue, of which there is much, excellent. The tension is there from the very beginning and does not falter to the extremely provocative ending, leaving the listener with the desire to immediately progress to the next book - after a brief period of gulping down air to contemplate and revive!

    Written in the present tense, the story is very immediate, the listener is right there in the action. And this is enhanced by Keith Michaelson's narration as he keeps pace with the excitements, terrors and battles which ensue. His voicings of the various protagonists, too, is individual and distinctive, with some slightly strange, but consistent, accents. An enjoyable performance. It is easy to empathise with the main characters and their predicaments.

    My thanks to the rights holder who freely gifted me a copy of Perses at my request, via Audiobook Boom. This is an exciting incident in the Nomad series and well worth hearing.even if the previous two volumes have not yet been heard.

    "Excellent"

    This is the first of the series i have got but the overall story is given in the background so its quite easy to catch up.
    The two main characters are brought to live well and it doesn't take long before we are invested in their story.
    I found the basis of the series interesting and would get 1st and 2nd chapters of them, probably in ebook format as its a little easier to flick back and forth between chapters to get a better feel for everything.
    The narration is well done and the gruff voices especially work well for the two main characters.
    This story was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review and as such is my own personal opinion.

    Keith Michaelson has given us a great performance that brings real life to KA Finn's captivating work. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review , it was so good I'm purchasing the first two books in the series. I believe you will like it too.

    "Bray & Garvan Vacation to Earth. Wait Thats Not It"

    Perses picks up right where Nemesis leaves off with Bray and Garvan being trapped aboard the Foundation ship, Alpha. Once landed on earth, they manage to escape the ship and the area around it by unconventional, but fitting for a Hunter, means. Bray turns to the only family he has left on earth for shelter, his uncle Morgan and cousin Erin but Bray didn’t leave on the best terms and it turns out his family thinks he is dead.

    Bray hated to leave Alpha without gathering the information he needed about the cyborg experiments but he knew it would have been suicide to take on the task with only Garvan by his side and no plan. Plus there is the problem of how to get off earth and back to the outer sector... As the story unfolds, we learn a lot about Bray’s past and even a little about our friend Garvan.

    As usual, K.A. Finn’s writing is excellent! I get so engrossed in the story that I could get lost in it and forget all about my obligations. Perses is relatively short compared to Ares and Nemesis but it’s fitting for the events that occur in the story.

    I truly believe that this series is best enjoyed in audio format. Keith Michaelson delivers another stellar performance and brings the story to life.

    At the end of the audiobook we get a short excerpt from the next book but its just a big tease. I absolutely cannot wait until the next book is released!

    I voluntarily provided a review in exchange for a free copy of this audiobook.

    "Great addition to the series"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a series that is definitely worth your time and credits. Very entertaining and enjoyable addition to the series. Loved diving back into the world of the Nomads. While I enjoyed this book I really wish it had been longer. I was so into the story that when it ended it caught me off guard. Those 5 hours flew by and left me wanting more.

    It's well written and flows smoothly with great characters and a very interesting story-line. What more could you ask for. Even though it's shorter than the previous installments the story doesn't suffer, there is still a lot packed into it. It's fast paced and full of non-stop action. Love the humor and sarcasm. It also leaves you hanging a bit. That ending was great but will leave you wanting the next book immediately.

    While all the characters are great, for me Garvan is a favorite. Really enjoyed that Brayden and Garvan were the main characters in this story. The story pulls you right back into the fight against The Foundation. Instead of battling The Foundation in space this time though, they are searching for information. Information that brings them to Earth. When they become stranded, it leaves Brayden with no choice but to turn to his family for help. A family that abandoned him a long time ago.

    Keith Michaelson does a great job with the narration. Nice voice. Very deep.Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Almost mesmerizing at times. He has one of those voices that just draws you into a story. Clearly spoken with a nice smooth pace. Great character voices. Perfect tone and delivery of the humor and sarcasm. He brings the characters, their emotions and the story to life. Very enjoyable.

    "Short entry to the series"
    Would you try another book from K.A. Finn and/or Keith Michaelson?

    I would try another book by Ms. Finn because I'm hooked on the characters and the plot of the Nomads and how they are fighting the Federation. I also enjoy Mr. Michaelson's narration, and have actually looked for more books with his narration to add to my growing TBR Mountain.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was disappointed in the ending as I felt it was just setting up for the next novel. The first 2 books in the series, while also setting up for other books, seemed more complete than this one. As a reader I felt that there should be more to it, or perhaps I felt disappointed that the other books were much longer in nature than this one.


    What about Keith Michaelson’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Michaelson's performance was stellar as always.


    Could you see Perses being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not this book per say, but the series as a whole yes. I could see some like Chris Evans or Chris Pine be a good fit for Braydon.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. I just hope it comes soon...

    "Perses is a Great Continuation"
    What did you love best about Perses?

    This book takes place where the last book ended.Once again, K.A. Finn delivers an entertaining story and develops her characters enough so that you care about what happens to them. She has created a rich world in Earth's future, where corruption reigns supreme and the innocent are fighting for things the Earth (Foundation) no longer stand for. This becomes an eye opener for Bray's family who trusted and worked for the very Foundation that destroyed their family. It was nice to see how they decided to handle it. Career or family? Read the book to see what they chose.As always, K.A's description of the world immerses you and gives you a feel for what life in this universe is like. I liked the main character's Bray and Garvan's determination and I loved how it ended without giving anything away. I think this will prove interesting when we get back to Griffin's story and his overabundance of problems with his cyborg parts. I just hope the next book doesn't take as long to hit audible. However.....


    Which character – as performed by Keith Michaelson – was your favorite?

    I understand why.Keith Michaelson is completely worth the wait. How he manages to create so many unique voices and keep them straight, I'll never know but it's a true gift and talent he has. He really does have a thousand voices and he delivers his lines with a passion for the material. I love his narration work, and I've bought books I'd never have bought just because he was the narrator and I've yet to be disappointed.I think in this book I like One and Garvan's voices the best.

    You'll find any book I've reviewed with Keith as the narrator will have me gushing because he's just that good. As a listener, I truly appreciate the effort it must take to give every character its own voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book was shorter than the previous books and I think I did listen to it in one setting. Once you are drawn into KA's word, it's hard to pull yourself away from it.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is part of the Nomad Series and is a bit different from those because it's mostly set on Earth. The previous books were set in Space and aboard a ship but they do have some of that in this book. All have been great futuristic/space opera. So join in on Bray and Garvan's quest to stop the foundation from making any more Cyborgs like Bray's brother, Griffin.You can't go wrong with K.A. Finn paired with Keith, it's a truly entertaining match made in heaven. Get this series! You won't be disappointed.If you found this helpful, please press yes.

    "Revelations. Fast paced. Deepening."

    This short but action packed entry into the Nomad series is a welcome addition. The sneak peek of Cronus at the end is enough to tie this seeming one-off into the main series. Michaelson is stellar for this material. Captures the seriousness, sarcasm, fear...every emotion.
    Finn continues to impress.

    A diversion from the main story, but a welcome one. This feels like installment 2.5 and I am glad Finn gave us this insight in two characters that have not gotten much of the lime light, but deserve it. At least for a time. Garvan and Bray are a great team and the interplay between the characters is well developed.

    I have a huge crush on Keith Michaelson. Anyone who can give me chills like that his rumble of a voice is amazing.

    Story
    "Bray fights his past and learns about his current"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! The narration is so well done with different voices, tones, infliction's, and accents it is a treat to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Perses?

    This story is more emotional with memories of the past, and Bray working through everything from when he was young through now. The feelings he felt toward his parents and his brother were those of a child that didn't see or know the whole story. Then, he has to tell his uncle and cousin about his family in the here and now. I was touched by what Morgan told Bray of his mother and father. Bray didn't remember or see the adult side of things and it was touching to hear about them.


    Have you listened to any of Keith Michaelson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oh yes. Keith is one amazing narrator. I love listening to his work. I looooove his voice. Okay, serious stuff now. He voices the characters with their own voice through tone, accent, and heart. The inflection he puts in each character brings them to life as their own whole person. Wow. I'm drawn into the story and forget he's a narrator because the characters come to life as individuals. That's amazing work!

    *I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    Bray and Garvan. Yes ma'am. And thank you. These two characters were growing to be some of my favorite secondary characters in the previous two books. Well, they aren't the only ones. So to get the treat of them together and fighting to survive along with learning about their pasts, sign me up! I was thrilled to get into this story with them.

    We get the story from Bray's POV on Earth. We also get sections from One's POV. These sections are very, very insightful. One is on the council that's behind all that's going on. We get to learn about their new colony they were trying to build. I'm not 100% sure about this colony and where it's at, but I'm sure it's going to be something mentioned more in the future. And the biggest piece of information.... One's behind Garvan being put in prison. Garvan knows something that could destroy One and everything he's working for. This puts a target on Garvan's head. We also get scenes from Garvan's POV, which are important moments when things start moving in their plans.

    I think I mentioned in the previous book that I was growing to like Garvan quickly. And I was right. I absolutely love him as a character. There are times he brings a huge smile to my lips with his personality and responses. They aren't the quick clip one lines, Garvan is more one to talk and leave the hint in what he says, almost a genuine sarcasm. I do love him. Garvan knows a lot about the scans and equipment used on Earth to identify people. He really grew on me in the last book, and I really like him here. This is part of what his job was before he went to prison. And his story! We learn his back story here too. Oh Garvan...

    The beginning felt slower, because there wasn't much Bray could do on Earth. I had an idea but wasn't sure how he was going to take on a huge Foundation headquarters on his own. But we get personal with Bray and Garvan. Then it all comes together and we get to what the Hunters do best. Fight.

    This is another wonderful addition to the Nomad series. I always enjoy the writing and narration in the biggest way. I look forward to more books!

    This book centers around the main leads, Brayden and Garvin.

    They are sent on a mission where they find themselves trapped on another planet.

    Overall, an engaging and action filled third book.

    Keith Michaelson did well with the narration.
