Description

Pinnacle Book Achievement Award Winner and Amazon best-seller!

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…

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 09, 2012 – Cavanaugh follows CassaStar with another work that shares the pros and cons of old-school science fiction. With his glory days in the Vindicarn Warbut a distant memory, grizzled telepathic pilot Byron serves aboard the flagship Rennather. The ship is sent to the planet Tgren to help investigate a strange alien artifact that s turning the Tgrens into mind readers. Byron is saddled with Mevine, an eager young space cadet, and charged with training the too friendly Tgren woman Athee to use her new powers, leading to a series of predictable complications. The main plot will be familiar to longtime fans of SF books and movies, and the chaste romance between Byron and Athee is straight out of golden age SF juveniles. Those looking for an unchallenging throwback will enjoy Byron s adventure, but fans of more recent genre efforts will scorn its well-worn tropes.
