Announcing the debut of Alex J. Cavanaugh’s first novel, CassaStar!

And judging from the outstanding reviews and buzz, it’s going to be huge!
(I also get to host Alex next Wednesday during his blog tour.)

CassaStar
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 Guaard.
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

Haven't read CassaStar, but Alex is stopping by my blog this week, so I'll get to find out more. Don't know that I've ever read a "space opera," but it's available in plenty of places, so it shouldn't be hard to find. Thanks, Diane.

I’ve watched the trailer several times and find it entrancing – looks like I’m facing a transition to becoming a sci-fi genre fan after all these years of resisting.

Jemi Fraser said...

I'm so excited for Alex! He deserves this :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Lee, I think he should!

Jane, maybe his book will surprise you.

Glad to see Alex got a lot of love today around the internet!
