First I must tell you this is the second book in a trilogy. I liked it so much I am now reading the third book CassaStorm, and then I'll go back to where it all started with CassaStar. I do things backwards sometimes.
Alex J. Cavanaugh is a strong and talented writer. His world building sets the stage on so many levels. I like the main character Byron. Even though he comes across as harsh and cold at times, he hides his feelings and love underneath his rough and tough exterior. I especially like the action sequences in space where Bryon kicks into gear. And the love interest Athee is a treat. I can easily see CassaFire on the big screen along with movies such as Star Trek and Enders Games.
Has anyone else read this marvelous trilogy? If not I'd start reading today.
