After the war between Sainnites and the Shaftal ends in a fragile peace, Karis, the Shaftal G'deon, and General Clement deal with the aftermath, while fire witch Zanja is sent two centuries into the past, where she may affect her own future.

Perseus Publishing

By water logic, a cow doctor becomes a politician. A soldier becomes a flower farmer. A lost book contains a lost future. The patterns of history are made and unmade.

Amid assassinations, rebellions, and the pyres of too many dead, a new government forms in the land of Shaftal—a government of soldiers and farmers, scholars and elemental talents, all weary of war and longing for peace. But some cannot forget their losses, and some cannot imagine a place for themselves in an enemy land. Before memory, before recorded history, something happened that now must be remembered. Zanja na’Tarwein, the crosser of boundaries, born in fire and wedded to earth, has fallen under the ice. Now, by water logic, the logic of patterns repeated, of laughter and music, the lost must be found—or the found may forever be lost.

Laurie J. Marks teaches at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She is the author of five previous novels, and her first two Elemental Logic novels (Fire Logic and Earth Logic) won the Gaylactic Spectrum Award and received multiple starred reviews. She is a recipient of the Fairy Godmother Award (James D. Tiptree, Jr. Award) and a founding member of Broad Universe.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND THIS AUTHOR. I just finished Water Logic ... it is haunting and beautiful. The prose is gorgeous, the characters are unique, and the problems they face are interesting. It is 3rd in a series called the Elemental Logic books. I would recommend reading Fire Logic (#1) and Earth Logic (#2) first. And I am enthusiastically anticipating the last book, Air Logic.
