Title: Cassa Storm

Author: Alex J Cavanaugh

Cover Design: C. R. W.

Publisher: Dancing Lemur Press, LLC

Ages: Young Adult




An occasional pirate raid and dealing with government bureaucracies was the only thing Byron thought he had to deal with these days. But as a galaxy-wide war comes ever closer to the desert planet of Tgren, Bryon is caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans as well as trying to prevent his son from losing his mind from nightmares caused by the declaration of war. A storm is coming and Bryon is caught in the middle…


Why you should read it:


I have to confess I’m not a huge science fiction fan except for occasionally watching Star Wars and being a follower of Star Trek, both old and newer versions. Sci-fi books don’t normally find a spot on my bookshelf, but I might have to make an exception with Mr. Cavanaugh’s latest book. CASSA STORM is the third book in a trilogy and follows one man’s journey to make his world a better place. It doesn’t really matter that this story takes place in space…it has the universal themes of hope, tolerance and survival. A good story no matter the genre is a good story and THIS is a good story!

Like-O-Meter Rating: 4 out of 5…give it a try!
