Fridays with Fred: Alex J. Cavanaugh's CassaFire

There's a book tour going on and Fred and I are represent'n.  Alex J. Cavanaugh's 2nd book, CassaFire is out now! Woot!  It released this past Tuesday and fans are psyched and have waited patiently since Book 1, CassaStar (which happens to be an Amazon Bestseller.)  Pretty awesome, huh?

Anyway, we're want to make sure we spread the word.  Here's a quick rundown of Alex Cavanaugh's CassaFire:

CassaStar was only 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… 

Sounds good, huh? I know.  Calm down.  You can get your copy of Book 1, CassaStar via Amazon here and then of course Book 2, CassaFire via Amazon here.  Or check it out via GoodReads here.

Congrats to Alex for all his hard work and success!
