Fire Logic

Laurie J. Marks


Earth. Air. Water. Fire.

These parts have sustained the peaceable humans of Shaftal for generations, with their refined powers of therapeutic, fact, pleasure, and intuition.

But now Shaftal is dying.

The earth witch who governed Shaftal is useless, leaving no inheritor. Shaftal's ruling condo has been scattered and destroyed via the invading Sainnites. The Shaftali have mobilized a guerrilla military opposed to those marauders, yet each year the price of resistance grows, leaving Shaftal's destiny within the fingers of 3 people:

Emil the Shaftali paladin: an officer and a student whose elemental powers make him an exceptional pass judgement on of character;

Zanja the diplomat: the only real survivor of a slaughtered tribe, her fireplace powers bringing the present of prescience;

Karis the metalsmith: a half-blood enormous whose earth powers can heal and create, yet in simple terms whilst she will muster the energy to carry off her dependancy to a dangerous drug that suspends her will.

Separately, all they could do is watch as Shaftal falls from prosperity into lawlessness and famine. in the event that they can have the ability to interact, they might simply switch the process history.

In the culture of Ursula okay. Le Guin and Elizabeth Lynn, Laurie J. Marks weaves a fancy story of political and private fight, set in a global whose issues are as conventional as ultra-modern headlines.
