    One should never read the third volume of a series first. If it is very good, one cannot avoid buying the rest of the series. That is my situation. Thanks to L.D. Alfords "A Season of Honor", I must cool my heels for several days until "The End of Honor" and "The Foxs Honor" arrive on my porch....A Season of Honor is not Christian literature in the sense of having a salvation message written into it. Instead it is Christian in its treatment of honor: a standard recognized in ancient history, and not subject to change for conveniences sake. The setting highlights the conflict. Far in the future, human society operates under feudal rules grounded centuries in the past. There may be rebellion against Honor, but no compromise with it....That is enough about morals. We can get those from a sermon. How is the story? Excellent! The reader fits easily into the authors created world, feeling the action instead of watching from the outside. The setting does not demand belief in the impossible. The time is futuristic and the society archaic, but the characters are well painted and realistic. The story builds steadily but uncomfortably to a climax. I say uncomfortably because the reader may eventually have to choose between real world needs (like sleep) or finishing the book. In my case, the book won....Shawn du Locke has good reason to rebel against honor. His past pursuit of it cost him his position, his rights, and the life of the woman he loved. Now he has made an oath to a person he trusted; as a result, he must face that which he has lost and is forced to deliver what he would prefer to flee or keep for himself. If he were to forego honor, his solution would be simple....Herein lies the other problem with a series. The immediate situation is resolved, but not everything is wrapped up with a ribbon. As in life, another challenge lies around the corner. Mr. Alford has left an opening to sell me another book when he gets it written.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a scientist and an engineer, and I write historical fiction and science fiction. I was an experimental test pilot in the military. I endue my works with personal knowledge of military operations and thinking. Because of my science background, I write science fiction that is alive and yet grounded in reality.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  In the Dragon and Fox novels, I wanted to give adults powerful science fiction with strong adult characters whose motivations were driven purposefully and ethically. In this novel specifically, I asked the question what will a man exchange for his honor.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  This book is an exciting read. The themes are adult and the novel can be read just for fun or it can be looked at in-depth.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  This is a book you can share with your secular friends. It is timeless science fiction written in a classic and classy style. At the same time, the book brings to the forefront the idea of self sacrifice for those things of greatest value: society, honor, friendship, love, and marriage.
