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 by K.A. Finn is the third book in the Nomad series. Brayden and Garvin, on a mission to gather all the intelligence on the Foundation’s cyborg program, become trapped on Earth, the center of Foundation operations. Brayden’s family, who up until this point thought that he was dead, agree to help and harbor them until they are able to escape. But little does Brayden know that his cousin is now an officer in the Foundation. Eventually, as Brayden’s story about the cyborg program and his treatment at the hands of the foundation, he and his family must come to terms with reality. As Brayden and Garvin, with the help of Brayden’s family, work to escape Earth, both must deal with the pasts they left behind so long ago on Earth.
Perses is a short follow up, possible novella length, to two previous books in the Nomad series. It takes a new turn as it follows the activity of Brayden, who is not the primary focus of the first two books. It also takes the reader to a new setting, away from the outer sector to Earth. And wonderfully, Perses follows in the great tradition of the first two novels. There is a lot of action, the pacing is well done, and the characters are well developed with great interactions. There is a lot of new information introduced about what the Foundation is up to and how the different characters slowly come to understand the changing realities is of the Foundation and its cyborg program is well done. It is also really interesting to read about the Brayden’s past and meet his estranged family. While this is the main storyline, the side story of Garvin and his relationship with the Foundation is also a welcome layer to the story. I do wish there was a small amount of time spent catching the reader up with what has happened in the previous book. It would be hard to understand what’s going on without reading the previous books. While I wish this addition to the series was longer, it’s a great added piece that adds a lot of interesting information and excitement. The end sets up the story for the next book and I look forward to where the adventure takes us next.
The narration by Keith Michaelson is excellent as usual. He does a great job with the characterization of each of the characters and makes each voicing reflect their personalities and emotion. The production quality was also great. I would recommend this installment of the series to anyone who enjoys space operas and the fight of the few against the vast and powerful.
