Ladies and Gentlemen! TODAY is a very special day in the blogverse. TODAY Alex J. Cavanaugh's NEW BOOK "CASSA FIRE" is released!!!
*fireworks! confetti! epic lightsaber battles!!!*
I met Alex over a year ago through mutual bloggy friends. He is a solid force in the blogsphere. He's always blogging (seriously! I don't think the man sleeps!), always giving us movie news and sci-fi views, and always (ALWAYS!) helping promote other authors and bloggers. In other words, he's a pretty swell guy.
So, without further ado, here's the most important news you'll read today:
by Alex J. Cavanaugh
CassaStar was just the beginning…
The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron’s days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel. Shuttle work is dull, but it’s a free and solitary existence. The senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather.
The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgren’s civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassan’s technology and strange mental abilities.
To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves; the strongest of which belongs to a pilot named Athee, a woman whose skills rival Byron’s unique abilities. Forced to train her mind and further develop her flying aptitude, he finds his patience strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy…
Science fiction - space opera/adventure

CassaFire is the sequel to Cavanaugh’s first book, CassaStar, an Amazon Top Ten Best Seller:
“…calls to mind the youthful focus of Robert Heinlein’s early military sf, as well as the excitement of space opera epitomized by the many Star Wars novels. Fast-paced military action and a youthful protagonist make this a good choice for both young adult and adult fans of space wars.” - Library Journal
