Marks, Laurie J. -- Water Logic
Third book about a wonderful magical homeland that got invaded by
militaristic assholes. The first two books kicked that cliche into a
puddle, along with any other cliches in earshot, and this one jumps up
and down in the puddle wearing pink polka-dotted galoshes. The
question was not how to repel the invaders -- they're here, they've
been living here for decades. Nor was it how to kill them; the war is
over. It's how to rebuild a country out of whatever it is that war
leaves behind. The series is relentlessly personal, familial, and full
of love. I bet you think that sounds sappy.
In fact Water Logic is not my favorite of the series so far; it's
a time-travel plot, which is not handled particularly deeply. But
it's got plenty of what I like about the books.
