Earth - Air - Water - Fire

These elements have sustained the peaceful people of Shaftal for generations, with their subtle powers of healing, truth, joy, and intuition. But now, Shaftal is dying. The earth witch who ruled Shaftal is dead, leaving no heir. Shaftal's ruling house has been scattered by the invading Sainnites. The Shaftali have mobilized a guerrilla army against these marauders, but every year the cost of resistance grows, leaving Shaftal's fate in the hands of three people: Emil, scholar and reluctant warrior; Zanja, the sole survivor of a slaughtered tribe; and Karis the metalsmith, a half-blood giant whose earth powers can heal, but only when she can muster the strength to hold off her addiction to a deadly drug. Separately, all they can do is watch as Shaftal falls from prosperity into lawlessness and famine. But if they can find a way to work together, they just may change the course of history.

    " One of the worst books I've ever read. Even the love scenes were boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 2/2/2014

    " This is an amazing series. I was instantly addicted. "

    " 3.5, I think. My attention wavered during this from time to time, and I don't think the author quite got the emotions of the characters across how she meant to (the main characters all felt the same to me -- quite cold and practical -- even though they were described as being different, I just didn't get it from their POVs). Yet I really like the world and how it was built: almost no reader hand-holding, very cleverly disguised exposition, no idiot audience stand-in character from furrin' parts going "Derp! What the!" about everything that happens. I loved that. I also loved the pokerfaced lack of explanation about the various same-sex relationships that turn up. There was absolutely no "Because you see, here in our world, that you also live in and know all about, people's sexuality is understood to be fluid and there's no homophobia!" or "As you know, in our world, where you live, these are the four elements and how they interact!" The stuff JUST HAPPENS, and we're supposed to understand how/why from the fact/way that it happens. Respect for readers! Huzzah! Because of that awesome (and tragically rare) writing trait, I will totally read the rest of these books. "

    " This one of those mediocre books written after Lord of the Rings. The book took a long time to read. The book was soemwhat filled with uninteresting facts. The women in this book drove me crazy. I didn't like how the woman acted. I didn't want to know about some of this stuff in here. The woman in this book seem immoral. The author focuses too much on women and not men too. I felt uncomfortable reading this book, because it contained too much romance between two women. Whoa! Is this a lesbian society? A lot of women tended to show that. I don't see how these people are to survive. The fantasy elements of the book didn't vary much. In fact I found that unorginal. There wasn't enough action in here for me. For me the book lacked good content. "

    " okay but not great wasn't even intrested in the rest of the trilogy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 1/17/2014

    " I read so many teen novels and so much manga that sometimes I find myself really wanting a longer, meatier read. This definitely qualifies. Although Fire Logic has some trappings of traditional fantasy (I confess the elemental magic stuff scared me away from it until it was recced to me), it's smart and complex, especially about war and culture. At the end of the book, I was satisfied with all three POV characters' arcs, and that's not often something I can say about multiple POV novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sofia Samatar | 1/14/2014

    " All the good heroic fantasy stuff--magic, legends, politics, danger--in a world with gender equality. I loved the damaged, struggling main characters; these are real heroes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/7/2014

    " Somewhat painful to read because I didn't care for the author's writing style. But a great story and a great story concept. I wonder why the 3rd book is published by someone else? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Linzey | 1/7/2014

    " One of the best fantasy books I've read in a LONG time! Even though I found them at the library (them being all 3 parts of this story so far), Kendra has devoured them at a speed that I've never seen her read a book before. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stevie | 12/16/2013

    " ver very good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Slippery Liz | 12/10/2013

    " Greatest fantasy series of all time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianne | 10/12/2013

    " So in this world, magic can be fire, earth, air, or water. The protaganist is a fire magic user, so that gives you the title. A amusing world, I will look for more in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Icky A. | 7/27/2013

    " It is, indeed, a book of epic fantasy but also the plot really moves, most of the characters are queer, the magic is cool, and the politics behind it all are thoughtful. Recommended! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 7/6/2013

    " This book quickly stuck itself into my favorites list. Way up at the top. It's engaging, beautifully written, and has a wonderful plot. I ordered the next books in the series immediately and I'm very impatient to have them in my hands. I highly suggest this book to anyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L (Sniffly Kitty) | 7/1/2013

    " I wanted to like it more. I really did. The characters are sweet, and the magic is interesting. I felt like the plot dragged and really spent too much time on troop movements or something like that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Just_ann_now | 5/30/2013

    " A slow start, but once I got to the middle I could hardly put it down. I'm so glad that I have the next two books in the series handy. "

    " Elemental Logic Bk-1 -I love these books, and am looking forward to reading the rest. "
