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 and Earth 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.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* The Sainnites and the Shaftal have been enemies for ages, but when Karis was declared G'deon, it became her responsibility to find a way to bring peace to the divided land, which she has, tentatively. The two peoples share land and work, but old hatreds smolder. And then a would-be assassin tries to kill Karis, and things get crazy. Clement, general of Karis' army, faces off with old friend but now rival general Heras over control of five mutinied garrisons now under Heras. Clement is killed and restored to life, but now she has lost all courage. Karis restores that courage at the increasing expense of Clement's mental health. The general, sound for some time after Karis touches her head, eventually becomes stupid; Karis can restore her again, but each successive relapse is worse. Meanwhile, a water witch steals Karis' wife, Zanja, and transports her 200 years into the past, in which she has her own parallel adventures that affect the future; that is, her natural present. How gifts from the past, often unknown or unacknowledged, bless future generations; how things that look like disasters or mistakes may be parts of a much bigger pattern that produces greater, farther-reaching good results—such is the theme of Marks' sweeping fantasy, which reaches its third volume with this successor to Fire Logic (2002) and Earth Logic (2004).
