Best Richard Bard Books
Brainrush: One of the best books by Richard Bard is Brainrush, which is the first book in the Brainrush book series. In this book, the readers meet with a terminally ill ex-pilot, one Jake Bronson. Jake is planning to have an MRI scan to determine how long he has left. As the MRI is being conducted, an earthquake hits California. Both Jake and the MRI are tossed across the room. However, it does not take long before something happens, that is going to change Jake Bronson’s life forever.
Once the earthquake stops, Jake comes out of the MRI scan with unimaginable powers. He soon becomes aware that his mind has become some sponge and it can absorb anything that he hears or sees. While meeting with one of his friends at one of the local bars, he puts his new abilities to great use by entering the sport’s quiz that was going on the television. As luck would have it, a sports crew was filming a story about the bar that evening, and thus they end up being interested in the man with a rather usual mental ability.
The news is exceedingly sensational such that it went viral and was even seen by some international terrorists, who were in the process of creating a weapon that they were going to use against the United States. Now, the group of terrorists is aware of Jake’s ability and are more than determined to do what it takes to study Jake and establish what makes him tick.
The Enemy of My Enemy: This is the second book in the Brainrush book series. In this book, we meet once more with Jake Branson, who has just begun to get his life back together, when an old foe resurfaces once again. The danger is exceedingly close and is being coordinated by a mastermind who happens to be out of reach. Is Jake going to finally give in and fight back or is he going to watch the people that he truly loves, suffer the consequences?
With that said, just like the first installment, Enemy of My Enemy is a pretty interesting read just like the first book in the series. Overall, Richard Bard is a brilliant writer, who uses his own life experiences to forge impeccable and outstanding characters as well. His stories are mainly based on second chances and also about embracing each day of one’s life as if it is their last.
