Here's some info you'll definitely want to know about Alex and his newest book:
by Alex J. Cavanaugh
CassaStar was just the beginning
The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byrons days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel. Shuttle work is dull, but its a free and solitary existence. The senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather.
The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgrens civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassans technology and strange mental abilities.
To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves; the strongest of which belongs to a pilot named Athee, a woman whose skills rival Byrons unique abilities. Forced to train her mind and further develop her flying aptitude, he finds his patience strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy.

CassaFire is the sequel to Cavanaughs first book, CassaStar, an Amazon Top Ten Best Seller:
calls to mind the youthful focus of Robert Heinleins 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
