CassaStorm Arrives!

Alex J Cavanaugh has finally given us the third in his trilogy of books centering on Byron, the warrior that yearns for peace. The early draft I was privileged to read was very sharp, and gave a surprising amount of depth into the relationships of everyone involved. I'm betting this will be his best yet.

See the announcement below, you know, in case you've not been on the internet for the past few months and this is the first place you've checked to get your news.


Comment on Alex’s blog this week for a chance to win a Cassa mug, mousepad, magnet, and swag!

You ever think of having Byron's sister play a bigger part in any of the books?

No, because she represented Byron’s past, which wasn’t pleasant, and he wanted to escape it forever. The last time he saw her was closure for Byron and he moved on with his life.

From the Amazon Best Selling Series!

A storm gathers across the galaxy…

Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.

After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.

Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could return. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…

“…mesmerizing story of survival, personal sacrifice, tolerance, and compassion. It’s a rare jewel that successfully utilizes both character and plot to tell a story of such immense scope and intimate passion…” - Nancy S. Thompson, author of The Mistaken

“CassaStorM is a touching and mesmerizing space opera full of action and emotion with strong characters and a cosmic mystery.” – Edi’s Book Lighhouse

"Cavanaugh makes world building on the galactic scale look easy. The stakes affect the entire known universe and yet Cavanaugh makes it intensely personal for our hero. The final installment of this series will break your heart and put it back together."
- Charity Bradford, science fantasy author of The Magic Wakes

Andrew, what does that mean?

Rusty, you the man! And couldn't have done it without your help, from outlining to critiquing. Just wait until you see the finished product.
