Featuring CassaFire by Alex J. Cavanaugh

Every Wednesday from today onwards, I would feature a book by a fellow author here on Amlokiblogs. 

I begin with Alex J. Cavanaugh, my co-host for the A to Z Challenge, and an author-hero in blogland,with his Amazon best-selling science fiction – space opera/adventure, Cassafire

Part of a series, the Library Journal finds that Cassafire “delivers on the promise of its
predecessor, combining military action sequences and political intrigue with
strong, memorable characters.”  I’ve read the series, and I agree.

Elevator Pitch:
is content with life on the exploration vessel. When the ship investigates alien
ruins, he is saddled with training a talented, feisty female pilot. Add the
adoration of a young scientist, and a threat from space, and Byron feels invaded
on every level. All he wanted was his privacy…

Teaser Excerpt:

Aware he needed to assist Athee with her
harness, Byron stepped away from the door. Unable to locate her, he frowned. The
other two passengers were secure in their seats and gave no indication as to her
whereabouts. Alarmed, Byron peered into the cockpit. Athee now sat in the
co-pilot’s seat, her harness in place and eyes scanning the control panel.
Concerned, he entered the cockpit. She looked up and smiled.
“Your controls still amaze me,” she said,
her eyes reflecting childish wonder. “So much information to
Hesitating, Byron grasped the back of her
seat. “You’ve been in a shuttle before?”
“Of course. The previous shuttle pilot
even gave me a ride over the valley.”
I bet he did! Byron thought, staring at
the attractive young woman. “Well, you need to go take a seat with the other

expectantly. “I thought I’d ride in the cockpit with you.”

her own good, he thought.

    Loved the first two books, looking forward to the third. I am also hoping Alex is going to write some more books.

    I don't normally read sci-fi, but I had to read it as it was Alex. I loved it. This is a great feature and CassaFire is a great place to start.

      Alex, you're always a joy to host. I wish all my guests took the trouble of promoting their posts and responding to comments the way you do.

    Damyanti, you're a treasure, for readers and writers. Thanks for giving us a taste of the ninja master's prose.

    I'm looking forward to more of YOUR writing, too!

    • Damyanti

      Marian, you're super-kind, as usual. I just like reading and can't imagine why I didn't think of sharing the work of my fellow-writers. I haven't been writing much, but your words do inspire me 🙂

    I've loved the first two. It's funny that I'm now just catching on to the humor in Byron's saying "I'll bet he did!" That was a great line, Alex.

    Nice to meet you here, Damy. Looks like you need just one more person to take you to 700 followers. Allow me.
