Release day! CassaStorm

Today is release day for CassaStormthe final book in the sci-fi space opera trilogy by Alex J Cavanaugh!

Before we go any further, Alex wants you to know that all it takes is leaving a comment on his blog this week for a chance to win a Cassa mug, mousepad, magnet, and swag! 

Alex offered to answer random questions from bloggers for his tour. 
Mine was...


Name something from your book's world that is routine and mundane to the characters, but interesting / new to your audience.

Telepathy is probably the biggest one besides teleportation. Cassans and several other races have the ability to communicate with their minds. They use it all the time without even thinking about it, but it would throw someone from Earth for a loop to suddenly hear another in his head.

No doubt!


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

"Cavanaugh makes world building on the galactic scale look easy. The stakes affect the entire known universe and yet Cavanaugh makes it intensely personal for our hero. The final installment of this series will break your heart and put it back together."
- Charity Bradford, science fantasy author of The Magic Wakes

  3. Telepathy both intrigues, and scares me. Not sure I'd want anyone to be able to hear my thoughts. ;)

  9. I really like how Alex works telepathy into the series. It's very believable. It kind of almost happens in real life, but the Cassans are more advanced than earthlings.

    Anyway, good to see yet another fan of Alex and his trilogy. How can anyone not be?

    Take care,

  10. Good question Melissa! It definitely makes the story world more authentic when the characters don't call special attention to 'routine' technology.

    Congrats & good luck to Alex!
