Staff Reviews

The first book in an epic quartet about a small group of friends attempting to end a twenty-year war. The best way I can describe this series is engulfing. It is a rain-soaked field as often as it is a warm hearth. It will enflame, it will soothe. It is one of those books that is both dark—concerning war, a land under siege, a society demolished—and full of hope—showing a community reimagined and rebuilt. It insists its characters question their beliefs, their driving forces, and do what’s right no matter how difficult. Also, it’s perfect for fans of Avatar the Last Airbender.

— From Emma N's Picks


Laurie Marks' Elemental Logic series introduced readers to the realm of Shaftal, an intricately imagined land whose people operate within the boundaries of their basic natures--here defined as logics--which sometimes bequeath them with access to magical, elemental powers and sometimes embroil them in unsolvable internal conflicts.

Fire Logic centers around the strong female character Zanja Na'Tarwein, a fighter and last survivor of her people in an occupied country. Alongside her is Karis, a powerful half-giant, who is a drug addict and lives in obscurity, hiding her considerable powers. Surrounded by incomprehensible loss, Zanja also forms a bond with Emil, an officer of the army she joins.

Battling the complex forces of power, desire, and obligation, follow along as the trio work together to try and change the course of history.
