    Ancient Standards, Future Setting, Excellent Story

    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. Alford's "A Season of Honor", I must cool my heels for several days until "The End of Honor" and "The Fox's Honor" arrive on my porch.

    "Honor" is a standard recognized in ancient history, not subject to change for convenience's 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 author's 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 developed and realistic. The characters are not so rigidly drawn that a reader cannot paint them to his or her own choosing, one reason I greatly prefer books to television and movies. 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 bond to 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 what 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.
