Reviewed by Maureen Dangarembizi for Readers' Favorite Perses is the third installment in the Nomad series by K.A. Finn, and is a sci-fi story set in Earth's distant future, where an evil government called The Foundation rules. In a bid to extend their rule to other sectors, they embark on a secret cyborg program. Bray and Garvan must find a way to escape The Foundation headquarters and survive long enough to travel back to the Outer sector. Bray hasn’t been on Earth for years and his family believes him to be dead. When he shows up on their doorstep, bloodied and desperate with another fugitive in tow, it’s a less than ideal homecoming. Will his uncle and cousin embrace him as he is now, or will they give him up to a fate worse than death? I haven’t read the other two books in this series, but Perses was easy to follow. It can easily be read as a standalone as the story mainly focuses on Bray and Garvan’s time on Earth. I liked this story’s family-oriented theme. As a sub-plot, it really added depth to the entirety of the book. To top it off, the story has some really cool fighting scenes that will blow you away. I wish I could jump right into the next book. K.A. Finn is a truly talented storyteller and doesn’t give Bray and Garvan an easy victory. The cost of escape is very high and I’m curious to see where this story is headed. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Sci-fi and established series fans will not be disappointed by this latest addition.

Bray finds himself revisiting his past and family on Earth, after several years away, while hiding from the Foundation and trying to figure out what to do. He needs to get off Earth, but the Scientist brought his computer here. Bray saw it when leaving Alpha, Foundation's ship, and knows he needs to get it. The computer holds the information that could help save Gryffin from the malfuctioning implants, but he has to break into Foundation headquarters and get it then get off world. Bray will have to get word to others off-world about what Foundation has in weapons and man power that could destroy the place he's come to love like a home. 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! 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. 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. 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.
