Alex' CassaStar

I volunteered to promote fellow blog buddy Alex J. Cavanaugh' first sci-fi novel CassaStar which will come out on October 19. Am supposed to post this on the 19th as promised but a super typhoon is expected to hit our town tonight till Monday and would surely affect our power and net services, hence instead of posting on the day of his book release, I am posting it now!

Friends, fellow blog pals, please support Alex' CassaStar! Here's a short review of CassaStar. If you wish to purchase, please check on the link below! Thank you and more power to all of you who would be more than willing to get a copy of this very interesting novel of his! I told my kids about the book and asked them to get me a copy of it soonest for our library! Of course, I'm sure they would!


To pilot the fleet’s finest ship…

Few options remain for Byron. A talented but stubborn young man with a troubled past and rebellious attitude, his cockpit skills are his only hope. Slated to train as a Cosbolt fighter pilot, Byron is determined to prove his worth and begin a new life as he sets off for the moon base of Guard.

Much to Byron’s chagrin, the toughest instructor in the fleet takes notice of the young pilot. Haunted by a past tragedy, Bassa eventually sees through Byron's tough exterior and insolence. When a secret talent is revealed during training, Bassa feels compelled to help Byron achieve his full potential.

As war brews on the edge of space, time is running short. Byron requires a navigator of exceptional quality to survive, and Bassa must make a decision that could well decide the fate of both men. Will their skills be enough as they embark on a mission that may stretch their abilities to the limit?

“…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
