What the hell is CassaFirE?
CassaFirE by Alex J. Cavanaugh
CassaStaR was just the beginning…
The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron’s days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel. Shuttle work is dull, but it’s a free and solitary existence. The senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather.
The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgren’s civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassan’s technology and strange mental abilities.
To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves; the strongest of which belongs to a pilot named Athee, a woman whose skills rival Byron’s unique abilities. Forced to train her mind and further develop her flying aptitude, he finds his patience strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy…

CassaFire is the sequel to Cavanaugh’s first book, CassaStar, an Amazon Top Ten Best Seller:
“…calls to mind the youthful focus of Robert Heinlein’s early military sf, as well as the excitement of space opera epitomized by the many Star Wars novels. Fast-paced military action and a youthful protagonist make this a good choice for both young adult and adult fans of space wars.” - Library Journal

TODAY I have the pleasure to present you something very special.
Author Alex J. Cavanaugh interviewed some important CassaFirE characters. Alex is as good as gold. Who else has a good rapport to the characters as the author.
For your information AJC = Alex J. Cavanaugh
The Hlerre Festival is in full swing as I move toward the table. Byron, Athee, and Mevine are already seated and watch my approach. A glass of wine awaits me, which is good. I’ll need it for this interview…
AJC - All right, fire away!
Mevine - I’m glad that (hic) you wrote a female character for Byron, but… what about my needs?
AJC - Well, writing one female character was difficult enough. Besides, I don’t think you’re ready for a girlfriend.
Mevine - (hic) Oh, I’m ready.
Byron - No, if you were a pilot, your love life would be the equivalent of a horrible training accident.
Athee - Be nice! Mevine, I’m sure it will happen one day soon.
AJC - Maybe in the next book.
Mevine - Well, until then (hic) I’ll just have another drink!
Byron - Speaking of female characters, why did you have to make this one so stubborn?
Athee - I am not!
AJC - She had to be headstrong to deal with your demeanor.
Byron - So, you’re saying she wouldn’t othewise be strong enough to handle me?
Athee - Actually, he’s saying you’re more stubborn and difficult than I am.
Mevine - I don’t think you’re difficult…
Athee - Mevine, drink your wine. Alex, why did you have to make Bryon so challenging? Do you realize how long it took to get through to him?
AJC - You should’ve seen him in the first book.
Athee - He was worse?
Byron - I’m right here, you know.
Mevine - (hic) I wasn’t even in the first book…
Byron - Just drink your wine! It wasn’t so much difficult. I just had issues with authority.
Athee - And now?
Byron - I’ve learned to ponder what I’m about to say and then not say most of it. Right, Alex?
AJC - Yeah, you’ve grown a lot since the first book.
Athee - Then I’m glad I didn’t meet you until now.
Byron - You still would’ve fallen for my charming personality.
Athee - Is that a fact? Well, Mr. Charming, you owe me a dance.
Byron - Well, if I have to. Mevine, watch our drinks.
They depart, and I feel a sense of relief. That wasn’t so bad. Mevine taps my shoulder.
Mevine - Do I get a girlfriend in the next book?
AJC - Mevine, just drink your wine.
Again thank you for this great interview. It seems Melvin should learn to be more careful with drinking wine. We all have been young and made our experience with alcohol.
I'm no clairvoyant but when I read between the lines I got the impression that we can hope for a third Cassa book
After the interview there are only two things left before we start to rock the house.
Watch the excellent CassaFirE book trailer which takes you just 69 seconds:
