The bonds of love and loyalty are tested as Jake and his friends are swept into a deadly chase that takes them from the beaches of California to the depths of the world's longest underground river, and finally to the remote jungles of the Venezuelan rain forest - where Jake discovers that it will take far more than his enhanced abilities to prevent what is coming.

    Story
    "Over the Top"
    Would you try another book from Richard Bard and/or R. C. Bray?

    Narrator was fine, better than most. But this story became trite and over dramatic, the action was consistently over the top and so non stop that it became noise. It was hard to buy into the varied dramatic settings.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed to first book, and forgave some of the silliness, but in this book the intrigue of the main character wore off and I started rooting for the book to be over.

    Story
    "Entertaining for the Most Part"

    This book was about the same as the first one in terms of suspense, interest, action, etc. Not a waste of a credit, but nothing to rave and carry on about either.

    I would definitely recommend reading the books in order, though I've either forgotten parts of the first book or they weren't presented, because there are details brought out in this sequel that made me think "wait, where were they in the first book." Unfortunately, some of those details are the kinds that put me off in a book. For example, here's the protagonist with a mother and sister somewhere (again, not much detail) yet the terrorist go after the family of an ancillary character. Picky details but to me it is those details that separate an OK book from a stellar book.

    But I digress. This book ends such that yet another sequel is no doubt in the making...but I suppose I'll get that one, too, as they have all been worth the credit so far.

    "Adrenaline RUSH - BRAINRUSH II"

    I have to admit a teensy part of me was worried that BRAINRUSH II wouldn't be as good, as BRAINRUSH, the first book. Well folks, worry NO MORE! Grab a parachute, floatation device, helmet, plenty of weapons, flashlight, water and MREs, for this action-packed, adrenaline laced trip.

    Don't forget to immediately, put on your parachute, you'll be needing it to dodge the bad guys. I hope you aren't afraid of water and can hold your breath, for a long, LONG time! You are saving the world from the "Bad Guys" so you'll need lots of weapons, help from unlikely sources and a lot of Aussie ingenuity to save your ASSets! You may think you have a bad case of Exploding Head Syndrome, except you won't need a doctor. Richard Bard's excellent description, of the characters and NON-STOP action scenes, place you right into the middle of the excitement. Twists and turns galore, throughout the book, with an ending that surprised me!

    Strap yourself in. . . and get ready for a FANTASTIC Adventure!

    Great Job Richard, LOVED it, highly recommend and CAN'T wait for BRAINRUSH III!

    "You won't be able to turn it off!"
    Where does The Enemy of My Enemy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm not surprised that this is one of the best reviewed books on Amazon. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series and this sequel was even better. I've listened to hundreds of books, but this is the first one that I ever felt compelled to finish in two sittings. I can't wait for the third installment!


    What other book might you compare The Enemy of My Enemy to and why?

    Well, obviously the first book in the series comes to mind. Besides that, I would say this story is kind of a mix between a Dirk Pitt adventure and a Michael Chrichton story. The action is non-stop and it's filled with unexpected twists and turns. The performance style is very similar to Scott Brick. (He's one of my favorites.) If you like Scott's performances, you'll like this.


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've never listened to any of his other work, but he's obviously an accomplished artist with a keen sense of pacing. He adds authentic accents and nuances to every character. It really brought the story to life for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My heart raced, that's for sure! There were also several instances that were very touching. I teared up big time at the end. But in a good way!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book and this author. The performance is wonderful, the writing is crisp and the story is very original. If you like fast-moving stories with lot's of unexpected twists and turns, you'll love this one.

    "Really good audible book EXCEPT FOR!!!"
    What disappointed you about The Enemy of my Enemy?

    GD GD GD GD GD GD GD I would of gave rave reviews except for the taking of the Lords name in vain . I don't like getting interested in a really good book and the auther runs out of intelligent words to say.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The fight between good and evil.


    Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favorite?

    Tony


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It had real life feel even with the alien situation , I related that more to spiritual being intervention than with the area 51 scenerio.

    "As good as the first novel"

    Ive come to enjoy R C Bray's reaading ..both the first book in this new ?series?trillogy? Whatever they turn out to be..and the writing is tight, though not all the questions get answered and of course there is. Clifhanger at the end of this book. Also.

    Worth the credit, and. for me it's a book I'll listen to again in a year or so before I but book 3.
    Please excuse typos..writing reviews on iPhones isn't particularly easy
