Before I get to the important news about our favorite Ninja, I want to make a couple quick updates.

First, the flooding here in Colorado really has been terrible and unprecedented.  Damn.  First we get walloped with terrible forest fires because of the drought and global warming, now we’re getting blasted with too much rain and flooding over a massive area.  My heart goes out to everyone who’s been affected.  It’s going to take a long time to put my state back together again.

Second, my book club appearance went well.  It was a small group that met in a library, but all the members were very kind and told me they really enjoyed reading The Compass Master.

AND NOW A DRUM ROLL for a wonderful man and the third book in his thrilling trilogy.  Congratulations, Alex!

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…

“With a talent for worldbuilding and a compelling cast of characters, Alex J. Cavanaugh combines high powered space battles and the challenges of family dynamics to provide readers a space opera with heart.”
– Elizabeth S. Craig, author of the Southern Quilting and Myrtle Clover mysteries
