Dragon of the Stars - 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?

    There’s no earthly way of knowing.

    * slaps head *

    A sink. All the time I was setting up the post, I was thinking it was some kind of metal basin.

    Which, I guess, is what a sink is …

  6. Louise Barbour/Fundy Blue says:

    A sink? It looks too shallow to me, but then the real Alex seems to be saying that’s where. I was thinking a roasting pan, especially with the onions and oven.

  7. Hmmm, this one is a bit more of a challenge. I think Mini-Alex might be getting ready for a soak in the sink?

    Yay for Dragon of the Stars release day!

  8. Ooo, so shiny. Mini-Alex is sitting on a flying saucer. No doubt about it.

  9. Toi Thomas says:

    Mini-Alex is so cool, he can even go surfing in the sink.

  10. Julie Dao says:

    Ahhh, I came too late for this because I was also going to say kitchen sink! Mini-Alex sure gets around, doesn’t he?!

  11. Jay Noel says:

    Looks like Mini Alex is wanting to help out with washing some dishes.

  12. Mini-Alex is washing dishes while reading?

  13. If the water comes on, Mini Alex can use Dragon for a raft…for a little while anyway! =) Congrats to Alex on his latest!!

  14. Has Alex made you do the washing up as well, Mini-Alex?

  15. Al Diaz says:

    I’m gonna say…. a sink. Pancholin says an odd tub.

  16. Truedessa says:

    Mini Alex is sinking into another realm where a dragon rules the sky..

  17. Shell Flower says:

    Everything but the kitchen sink on this blog tour…oh, wait! Mini Alex is leaving no stone unturned in finding readers for his ninja captains new release!

  18. Does mini Alex shower in the sink because it’s just the right size for him? Maybe we should give him some privacy…

  19. mini Alex has that sinking feeling (hanging out in the sink)… because he’s nearing the end of the book and recalled big Alex claimed he wouldn’t write another… Noooooooo!!!!!

  20. Mini-Alex is in the sink! I wish he’d come over and do my dishes for me.

  21. Hilary says:

    Hi Dianne – I think mini Alex has been baking … the Cavanaugh family will need some fodder soon – this has been a real rush around … cheers Hilary

  22. Sheri Larsen says:

    Haha! I’m all fangirl over little Alex! He’s so cool with that.

  23. Yep, very fitting! Now it’s time to wash all those grilling dishes! I hope Mini Alex can swim!
    I’m off to check out your space now, Diane!

  24. I’ll be a raging conformist and also say that mini-Alex is, in fact, in the sink. 😛

  25. That looks exactly like my bar sink! Wait! I’m going to check it out and see if Alex is in there.

  26. Cool as chrome, baby, cool as a chrome sink. Watch out for the whirlpools, Mini-Alex!

  27. Spacerguy says:

    Its a titanium vault. Mini Alex must have encountered a lot of crossfire lately, I bet he’s lying low until the Dragon cools off.

  28. I’m sure he’s cooling off in the sink after being in the oven! Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com
