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 andEarth 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.… (més)

The third book in Laurie J. Marks' Elemental Logic series, Water Logic picks up where the earlier books leave off, and absolutely lives up to their magic. Partially made up of dual narratives that echo each other in a gorgeous line of symmetry, the book pulls together all of the magic and wonder from the earlier books, and only builds upon it all. As true-feeling as the characters are, the book's world is one that you can't help being sucked into.

I'd absolutely recommend this series, and I can't wait to read the fourth. ( )

This book is not as strong as the first two books in the series, in terms of the plotting, which was more haphazard and felt unfinished at the conclusion of the book. To some extent, this serves to (presumably) set the reader up for the fourth book in the series, but I'm not a big fan of books that leave significant plot points hanging that way.

That said, the book does still have the fascinating themes and strong character development of the last two books, and on top of that, is published by Small Beer Press instead of Tor, and thus has a much better look and feel (the Hot Warrior Woman covers of the first two books didn't really do the content justice).

Heart breaking, but also all the wounds are healed. There are a few things that didn’t make a lot of sense but it was still quite good. ( )

I received this book through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. "Water Logic" is the third book in Laurie Marks' "Elemental Logic" series. I had previously read the first two books, but decided to re-read them in preparation for reviewing this book and I'm glad I did. This isn't a review of the series, but I can't recommend it strongly enough. It has been a balm on my soul.

"Water Logic" builds on the previous two books and follows the main character from the them, Zanja, but the narrative flow is distinct and appropriate given the title. While I didn't struggle to understand what was happening at any given moment in the story, I did spend time considering why and how it was happening. I thought was both intentional and tied to the theme of water-typic logic, making it a nice touch. I thought this story was weaker than both "Fire Logic" and "Earth Logic", but I still very much enjoyed it, and look forward to reading the conclusion. ( )

Because this book was coming to me through LibraryThing's early reader program I decided I had to read the earlier books first. So I did and was glad to find that I was drawn into these stories from the first book. Lots of different characters with different strengths, trials and tragedies. However, the author does a good job of helping us keep them straight and not get lost.

I do think the books should be read in order because they all build on what came before. There'd be no way to understand all the structure to their history or current lives without the earlier books. That being said -- I liked this one as well. Enjoyed meeting the Water people. Nice break from the grimness of the town/stress of rebuilding although there is plenty of that going on in this book as well.

I do wonder if Leeba is a water element. Don't understand what happened with Clem at the very end, how was she treated and is she actually healed? I don't think what they seem to think is a big revelation is that big but I guess it could be a psychological thing for them. Maybe it's because we know most of the ancestors of people on Earth came from other countries that to me it isn't that big of a deal. However, I can already tell it could be a big deal in the next book. Hope to read it before the year is out. ( )
