Overview

The fragile peace of the Human Galactic Empire hangs in the balance.
Book Two, The Chronicles of the Dragon and the Fox
Don't miss Book One, The End of Honor, or Book Three, A Season of Honor
By L.D. Alford, the author of the suspense-thriller, Aegypt, Centurion, and The Second Mission

It was a time of treachery and vengeance…of nobility and redemption…all because of love.

Prince Devon Rathenberg, the Emperor’s Fox and chief of intelligence, has fallen in love with the Lady Tamar Falkeep—the third daughter of the least Duke in the Human Galactic Empire. But custom dictates they can never marry.
Then the unthinkable happens. In the insurrection that threatens to tear apart the Human Galactic Empire, Devon designs a plan to reveal the Empire’s internal enemies. It’s a plan of desperation that, by design, will result in the ultimate sacrifice: his own death. But before he dies, Devon is determined to win the heart of Lady Tamar and declare his love.

This is the second novel in The Chronicles of the Dragon and the Fox by L. D. Alford. You really don't need to read The End of Honor before reading The Fox's Honor, but I'm glad I did. Both books show Alford to be a master universe creator and storyteller. The Fox's Honor combines action, romance, politics, story world, military, and science into an intriguing tale. Even though this was bedtime reading for me, I had trouble putting it down. I look forward to reading the next in the series.

A fascinating read for the science-fiction buff happily suffering from a debilitating touch of the romantic notion. In The Fox's Honor, Mr. Alford transports an unbending code of chivalry and honor to a futuristic world light years displaced in time and distance from the Avalon in which such Arthurian ethics were born. The romantic will not be disappointed in the love story between Sir Devon Rathenberg, alias "The Fox," and Lady Tamar Falkeep, the woman who has stolen The Fox's heart. Denied any chance of a future due to social station and propriety, Sir Devon and Lady Tamar must conceal their love. But when, in a twisted turn of events, The Lady thwarts Sir Devon's planned death, a new course deciding the fate of the Human Galactic Empire is demanded--a course that will take them and their noble houses into collision with the tyrannical faux Emperor Perod. Neither will the sci-fi buff be disappointed with Mr. Alford's detailed account of escaping the constraints of physical space via null space transportation, meticulous attention to the demands of orbital dynamics, and descriptions of the astro-/aeronautical nuances of intergalactic spacecraft. Those Star Trek afficiandos owning a copy of Hayne's USS Enterprise: Owner's Workshop Manual will demand a similar work from Mr. Alford. I take that back; they won't need one. Mr. Alford, a test pilot himself, renders treatment only an aeronautical engineer's mother could love to the technical aspects of space travel and the vehicles that conquer it. The Fox's Honor is Book Two in "The Chronicles of the Dragon and The Fox." It's prequel is The End of Honor, and it's followed by A Season of Honor. I didn't need the prequel to enjoy The Fox's Honor. I am, however, driven to purchase the sequel. I suspect you will be, too.

Mr. Alford's trilogy The Chronicles of the Dragon and the Fox is set far in the future in The Human Galactic Empire which is made up of many inhabited planets and and moons in a far galaxy. In the tradition of Star Wars, each book follows one of the main characters. The first followed the Dragon. The second book, The Fox's Honor, follows Devon Rathenberg, the Fox who is the head of intelligence for the Emperor. The Empire is in trouble.Two assassinations have left the leadership in ruin. Devon along with his lovely and intelligent wife, Tamar, must race against time and many enemies--some very close to them--to reunite the divided kingdom. Mr. Alford's background makes him an expert in his descriptions of military equipment and futuristic travel. The details would appeal to those hungry for action-adventure; the relationship between Devon and his wife Tamar give enough romance to satisfy all readers. Nice job!

When I read Mr. Alford's background, I knew the technical qualities of his work would be precise, and I was right. But he also puts his knowledge of science to imaginative use; his obvious love of aeronautics certainly serves to enhance his chosen genre and the details in this book. For me, the universe he creates -- futuristic, yet somehow ancient -- is the most intriguing aspect of THE FOX'S HONOR. His exploration of genetic engineering, the nobility and resulting society it produces, is thought-provoking and timely. If you have ever questioned the concept of honor -- how duty and loyalty affect our daily decisions, both large and small -- you should buy this book; it might challenge your way of thinking!

Prince Devon's daring sacrifice saves the Empire from its enemies, while his love for Lady Tamar evokes an even greater conflict. THE FOX'S HONOR provides all the elements of a "can't-be-it-down" book. An Empire in turmoil. A House divided. A code of Honor. Revenge. Betrayal. Intense love. Ultimate triumph. An intriguing adventure story for both men and women who love a good science fiction read! Alford weaves a timeless tale of struggle between good and evil, hauntingly taking me to another story of Redemption.
