Dragon of the Stars

By Alex J. Cavanaugh

 The ship of legends…

 The future is set for Lt. Commander Aden Pendar, son of a Hyrathian Duke. Poised to secure his own command and marriage to the queen’s daughter, he’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

But when the Alliance denies Hyrath’s claim on the planet of Kavil and declares war on their world, Aden finds his plans in disarray. Entrenched in battle and told he won’t make captain, Aden’s world begins to collapse. How will he salvage his career and future during Hyrath’s darkest hour?

One chance remains–the Dragon. Lost many years prior, the legendary ship’s unique weapon is Hyrath’s only hope. Can Aden find the Dragon, save his people, and prove he’s capable of commanding his own ship?


But Wait! There’s more…

So as you know in my last post I gave a shout-out for Ciara and Robert.  Long may they reign in their respective realms.

Tonight I’m super tired.  Falling asleep at my desk while knowing full well (here comes the guilt) that I should be writing something witty and fun and maybe get back to some action-packed stuff.  But seriously, I’m so sleepy and tired I hurt.

So bless Alex J. Cavanaugh for making it easy to write this short, sweet, enthusiastic shout-out for the release of his new novel, CASSAFIRE!

(Pause to cheer).

That’s right, folks.  Feb 28  is the blog party for Alex’s sequel to his best-selling novel, CassaStar.  The Kindle version is already out on Amazon, the paperback is now officially launched, and a new adventure begins for Byron, who among other things must train a woman pilot “whose skills rival Byron’s unique abilities.”  Love the sound of this.

So here’s a cyber toast to Alex and CassaFire.  Happy launch, y’all.


You know, if I had bothered to read the instructions Alex sent out, I woulda posted more accurate information.  But am I an efficient blogger in this respect?  Oh, hell no.  So here, delayed, is the OFFICIAL info regarding Alex’s blogfest:
