The Storm is About to Break!

Announcing a coming storm! Alex J. Cavanaugh’s third book in his best-selling series comes out Tuesday, September 17th. Comment on Alex’s blog this week for a chance to win a Cassa mug, mousepad, magnet, and swag! In addition, he answered my question regarding secondary characters below.


CassaStorm

By Alex J Cavanaugh

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…

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

“…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

What is your favorite secondary character in each of your books?

In CassaStar, it’s Ernx, a fellow pilot. (He’s also the only one to appear in all three books.) He's light-hearted and easy-going. In CassaFire, it was the dorky scientist Mevine. The young man was just a bunch of awkward nerves, and he was fun to write. In CassaStorm, it’s a character named Piten who went from a very minor character to a much larger one when I realized how important he was to the storyline. He has a cocky attitude, similar to another character I know...

It's a fun series to get lost in. I love his universe and there is so much more I'd like to see set in this universe.

Mevine is a favorite of mine and I really like Piten!

Ernx and Mevine were favorites of mine as well. ^_^

D.G. Hudson said...

I read the first two books and I'm sure this one won't disappoint.

His fans may want even more, and if he combined music and writing, he could start another series, perhaps about a space rocker. Just sayin'.

Robin said...

I like D.G.'s comment. A book about a space rocker could be very cool...

Congrats to Alex and fun question.

Medeia Sharif said...

I have a copy and look forward to reading it.

Peaches Ledwidge said...

I have been spotting Alex all over blogger's land. I hope that everyone will support him as he supports others.

Nick Wilford said...

Funny how who we initially perceive as minor characters can often end up taking a larger part. I guess it takes writing them to know them!

Vanessa Morgan said...

I really should start reading those books. Have a lovely weekend.

Milo James Fowler said...

Let's hear it for the minor characters! And way to go, Alex. You're an inspiration to us all.
