The Storm We've All Been Waiting For: CassaStorm!

Congrats to the Ninja Captain, Mr. Alex Cavanaugh, for the release of his third book, CassaStorm! The storm has just begun and this book is about to consume the blogosphere. Here is my question to The Captain:
Which of your three books was the most fun to write? And now that the trilogy's done, are you considering a four book?

Each one was different. It was fun writing CassaStar, because I was rewriting a story I’d imagined when I was younger and there were no expectations or pressure when working on it. CassaFire was lighter and involved more humor, plus the story flowed really quick from my mind. With the third one, it was just seeing the improvement in my writing skills. And knowing I was completing the story.

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

“…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
