Although I'm not sure that the magic of this book stood up to the first book in the series, I still absolutely adored it. Marks' prose and the world she's created here are intoxicating, and although there were moments in this one where I found it tough to keep track of all of the intricacies of plot and character, I still loved just about every minute of the reading experience. The blend of in-depth characterization, world-building and story-telling here is hard to beat, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

The one caveat: The reading experience here absolutely depends on the first book--this is a book that's meant to be read soon after the first one, and I imagine the next book will be the same, so I'd recommend interested readers plan on devouring the series all at once, book to book, rather than taking breaks from the world in between the books in the series.

This sequel to Fire Logic is equally strong, and just as enjoyable. It carries the main characters forward into a new set of engaging and provocative adventures. ( )

It was good. Almost as good a fire logic. Except it was confusing and strange a lot of the time. I mean, it made sense but it was still just to odd for it to settle properly in my mind. The new characters were very interesting though and I got invested in them quickly. The non-conventional family structure was great to read. The ending was unfortunately off-putting. Just the idea that they're basically destroy some people's identity because Zanja is holding a grudge. I really don't feel comfortable with that. It really ruined the whole book for me, I think. ( )

I loved this if anything slightly more than the first one in the series. The warmth of the characters, the messages of kindness, the glimpses of interesting magic sprinkled throughout, and especially the very satisfying conclusion... all of this I really appreciated. I’m on to the next one. ( )

A generation ago, the Sainnites (refugees from their own land) invaded Shaftal. Now they’re trying to raise a new generation of soldiers, but they have to be taken (or gotten voluntarily) from Shaftali families. Meanwhile, the super-powerful potential leader of Shaftal is trying very hard not to do anything, because doing things might end with a bunch of dead people. Marks is trying to do something interesting about how peace can be harder and more rewarding than war, and how welcoming people in can be more powerful than fighting them. I don’t think it’s for me, in part because I don’t much like ideas like “fire blood people have certain emotional as well as magical traits, and earth blood people are different,” even when they're not super race-associated--I'm much more about fundamental attribution error--but it is definitely a different kind of fantasy.

For the people of Melrose, Massachusetts--especially the baristas, poets, counselors, babies, delivery people, firemen, illegal parkers, students, parents, photographers, coffee drinkers, jaywalkers, and neighbors. And also for the people who love snow, plant flowers, hang Christmas lights, and refuse to put vinyl siding on their beautiful Victorian houses. And for their dogs and cats, and for the crabby snapping turtle I rescued from the middle of the road one afternoon, and for the flocks of geese that fly by overhead.

What has always distinguished the Shaftali people is their hospitality. The great historians have written of it repeatedly: of the effort the Shaftali people go through, to treat every stranger as a member of the family. They say, perhaps rightly, that this tradition has an element of self-interest, for to feed and shelter the homeless wanderer prevents crime and theft. But in fact this custom goes much deeper than self-interest.

The Land of Shaftal is unforgiving, a place of harsh winters and brief summers, where sometimes only luck might decide the difference between death and survival. That once was the case, long ago, in the time of the first G'deon, Mackapee. But as Mackapee sat in his isolated cave by a peat fire, watching over his sheep, he imagined Shaftal as a community based on mercy. Kindness and generosity, he wrote, can never be earned and will never be deserved. Hospitality is not an act of justice, but of mercy--a mercy beneficial to everyone, by making it possible to depend on and trust each other.
