Fire Logic by Laurie J. Marks
I wanted to like it more. I really did especially because this is one of a few fantasy books which explores queer relationships in a world where they are accepted. The characters were sweet, and the magic was interesting (which was based on an elemental division of power). Also, what element (fire, air, water, earth) your magic was based on also tended to hint at the character's personality although there is no real mention of whether the personality causes the magic or if the magic causes the personality to form in a certain way.
Unfortunately, I felt like the plot dragged and too much time was spent on troop movements. Still, this is an entertaining if somewhat forgettable read, which makes you want to root for the survival of the love of the characters if nothing else.
