Author Alex J. Cavanaugh’s second offering is poised to follow his debut novel’s footsteps. With its focus on characters rather than high tech, CassaStar enjoyed a three month stay on Amazon’s Science Fiction Best Seller chart and found an audience beyond its genre. CassaFire introduces several new elements into the series, including a feisty female pilot opposite the lead character, Byron. In addition to a blog tour, the author is hosting a Catch Fire Blog Party on release day with hundreds of sites participating. Readers seeking a character-driven adventure will find CassaFire a refreshing change of pace and a worthy sequel to its predecessor.

Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassans. To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers. Forced to train Athee and further develop her flying aptitude, Byron’s patience is strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy…
