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.

"Dead men don't generally have friends."
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.
