Staff Reviews


I love almost everything put out by Small Beer Press, and when I got a copy of Fire Logic in the mail, I read it and immediately blazed through the rest of the series. Fire Logic is the first in an epic fantasy series about a brutal civil war where every character and plot point pivots around history, philosophy, and the aftermath of violence. It's gentler, in later books, and slower than series like Erika Johansen's Tearling books or Ann Leckie's Radch series (though if you like Kalr 5 and her tea cups, you'll also love Garland and his ladle). The questions these books ask repeatedly are, what systems are working to narrow our choices? And what kind of radical thinking will allow us to see another path?

— From Christina

Description


The martial Sainnites have occupied Shaftal for fifteen years but every year the cost of resistance rises. Emil, a scholar officer, Zanja, the last survivor of her people, and Karis, a metalsmith, half-blood giant, and an addict ... together, perhaps they can change history.

Praise for the Elemental Logic series:

"A deftly painted story of both cultures and magics in conflict."--Robin Hobb

"A work filled with an intelligence that zings off the page."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Laurie J. Marks's first two Elemental Logic novels both won the Gaylactic Spectrum Award. The final novel, Air Logic, is forthcoming.
