    1. Following on from "Everlast", the first in the duology, this one accelerates the pace of action to a level where I found myself forgetting to breathe at times. Richard's story-telling abilities are nothing short of brilliant, and they keep you hooked from the first page.Both this one, and its predecessor are slightly shorter than the books I usually read. Personally, I prefer a longer book. In this case however, I had both books, kindly sent to me as advance reader copies by the author, so immed [...]


    2. This is part two of the Everlast duology and follows on from book one without missing a beat. Jake is trying to locate his family and boy you don't want to get in his way. In the meantime his Children are fighting a battle of their own. It is quite the thriller ride, fast-paced and it will have you laughing, crying, gasping, shouting at the pages and even cursing Richard Bard.If you haven't read any of this series, I recommend starting with Brainrush and offer this advice - fasten your seatbelt [...]


    3. "Ephemeral" the next adventure in the "Brainrush" duology which I won from /First Reads is a high-powered rush that begins with Jake Bronson and his friends breaking into Jiaolong's headquarters in Hong Kong where he believes his wife and children are being held hostage. But as always the madman is one step ahead of Jake, escaping to a small village in the jungle where he not only dangles the prisoners daring him to rescue them, but threatens to unleash software that will bring global chaos.Stra [...]


    4. The conclusion to the Everlast portion of the Brainrush series was outstanding. I finished this book in record time because I couldn't put it down. The book had me more than a little choked up before it was over. I can't wait to see where things go from here because wow that ending. The Brainrush series never fails to satisfy my need for mystery and adventure. But, wow that ending! ;-)Another must read novel. I loved it!


    5. ExcellentSo much talent is spilled out in the Brainrush series. These books has so much action from start to finish. There has to be a sixth book it simply cannot stop here, not like this. My mouth just dropped at the end.If you are looking for a great thriller the Brainrush series is where you should start. Keep up the good work Mr. Bard.


    6. at: Kindle Edition|Verified PurchaseThese books were incredible! Received the first free and quickly read and bought all the others, the old standby of, I couldn't put them down holds true! Great character development, a little bit of every scenario you can imagine, incredibly fun read!!!!


    7. Ready for book 6I enjoyed your books because they are well written and very entertaining. I am 68 yrs old and have read well over 1500 books in my lifetime. You are one of the best authors in your genre.


    8. Be prepared to buy #6 immediately as the story continues immediately. One of the better scifi fantasy books out there.


    9. I received a free copy of this wonderful book from Richard Bard for writing a review. I have not let that colour this review. This is the second of the Everlast duology, being a follow-up to Everlast. It is important to be aware of this and to read Everlast before turning to Ephemeral. I am pretty sure that if you do read Everlast, you will definitely be wanting to go on to read this book!!The Everlast series were the first books written by Richard Bard that I had read. I must admit to being mor [...]


    10. Richard Bard has done it againThis is the second book in "THE EVERLAST DUOLOGY BOOKS" and was just as good if not better than the first. It is also part of the "BRAINRUSH SERIES". Mr Bard has a wonderful talent for writing a story that keeps you turning pages until you have no choice but to put down the book to get a couple of hours of sleep. He is a brilliant author and all of his books will keep you wanting more.From start to finish this book has the reader on the edge of their seats wondering [...]


    11. Even as a trashy, easy read, this book stands out as one of the poorest excuses of a sequel as any. Why all the great reviews? or to be specific, a very few amount of overwhelmingly good reviewsRichard Bachman.ohi'm sorryi confused this with another fake namei mean, Richard Bardah, wow, not sure how i got that mixed up. So.y who has a fake name so he won't get vegetables thrown at him in public takes time to have a group of unpaid people to read his books before printing. They either say,' yes, [...]


    12. I got this book and the first book in this duology "Everlast" through the giveaway program and, to be frank, I had my doubts. The books I've won have been a mixed bag. Now I am left wondering--why have I never heard of this author before? I'm also going to have to get and read his previous books. This book was all-action all the time and reads just like a movie. In fact, I'd LOVE to see a movie based on the book. Jake Bronson saved the world in the past, but practically nobody knows it. Now his [...]


    13. Ephemeral is the second novel in Richard Bard's Everlast Duology Series and we once again join forces with Jake Bronson and friends Lacey, Pete and Skylar as they arrive in Hong Kong searching for Jake's family and best friend Marshall.So, Game on. Back on that roller coaster of thrills and spills, chock-a-block with action, suspense, danger, cutting edge technology, superb characterization and multiple strands in the plot line that all weave together to produce one fabulously exciting, fast pac [...]

    15. To understand what is going on in this phenomenal book, 1st you read Brainrush, by Richard Bard, then The Enemy of My Enemy (Brainrush 2), after that, Beyond Judgement, then Smoke and Mirrors (Jake Bronson 4, of which all these are), then Everlast and FINALLY Ephemeral! And during all this reading, you will gasp, laugh, cry, hold your breath, clap a hand over your mouth, get watery eyes, wonder how the hell they did it, think they just CAN'T do it and have more emotions than you ever had in read [...]


    16. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around it.This is a Science Fiction/Techno-thriller with a twist of Family Drama.Jake goes all out to locate his family and missing friends. The young man known as Dark Matter wants Jake to find them but for an entirely different reason. Will Jake be able to save the people he loves or will evil win?This story is full of twists and turns all the way to the end that even I didn't see coming. This book is for Mature Audiences due to Violence.


    17. Wow! This was an exciting ride! Just a good as the first book (and that is high praise) it didn't ease up on the action. I really hate reviews that tell you all about the plot as it tends to spoil it for me, so I'll only say that you will be cheering Jake on as he tries to save the day. I'm a huge fan of this series - cannot recommend it highly enough to do it justice!


    18. The ending of other Everlast duology kicks right off where book one ended. Jake's family and friends are missing, held hostage by an organization with some seriously nasty plans. His kids are on an adventure of their own, and heading Jake's way. The end grabs you by he throat and makes you gasp. And then you're left wondering what now?


    19. A great read.Another great book in the Brainrush Series. Non-stop thrills, heart-stopping suspense, and just plain heart. This is the first time I've had to wait to read the next book in the series (not available until 2017), and it's killing me. If you're already up to reading book #5, you know what I'm talking about.


    20. Perhaps I'm growing bored with this particular story formula. I've read a number of series where every book has the main character and his friends battling against a super-villain's group, and they're all starting to blend together. I found my mind wandering way too much while trying to finish Ephemeral. This kind of fluff is fun sometimes, but now I'm craving a deeper story.


    21. Another smashing installment.The saga continues and the pace never lessens. An amazing adventure that incorporates action, adventure, high tech, love, kids and relationships. Oh, forgot, science fiction and aliens too. Waiting on the next and maybe final installment is driving me crazy.


    22. A very gripping readI devoured this book. So well written and engaging I just could not put it down. Hardly a dull moment anywhere in the book. My one and only fault with it was the ending.o Hollywood. Back home and safe then a final page to turn it all upside down and end with the opening of a new story sequel.


    23. The concluding part to the Everlast duology, see Jake rushing in to save his family and friends. With new allies helping,Jake infiltrates the base but is caught up in Jiaolong's trap, but after Jiaolong's is betrayed, Jake sees his chance, but at what cost!! A good follow up series to Brainrush,left with the set up for more.


    24. This can't be the end!I really hope there are more stories coming! This one was impossible to put down! Once again, it's Alex, his father Jake, their friends, and family taking on twisted megalomaniacs to save the world. There are sacrifices made along the way but all seems to be resolved until the last few sentences. Please sir, I want some more.


    25. Ephemeral (Brainrush series Book 5)Excellent book. Highly recommend this book to everyone. Excellent story line kept your interest and attention making it hard to put down. Excellent series a must read.


    26. love this series was so excited when the last 2 books came out went back and rereadall 3 of the orginal BRAINRUSH series.Great way to ad to the story BUT are you kidding I hated/loved the cliffhanger of the end of this book.


    27. Exciting story!Troubles never seem to end for Jake and his family and friends. Once you start this series, you can't turn the pages fast enough to keep up with the suspense. I'm looking forward to the last installment.


    28. very enjoyable once you get into the storyline. hard to put down. slow moving at first but rapidly picks up speed and becomes hard to put down. ending leaves you up in the air waiting for the sequel.I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review


    29. Wow the ride just keeps getting betterI've read all the Brainrush books and each one is better than the last. The characters and their love for one another. The action packed fighting they go through together. The storyline, all make this a can't put down read.


    30. Can't wait for the final book of this series! Love the way the characters are so believable and how much you miss them when they're in different parts but not at all times. Fast paced and a definite a page turner.
