D. Wallace Peach continues this rich story with an uncanny ability to to blend worlds and characters, philosophies and nature. She explores the ability of influencers and the shielding of their influences. She writes the universal truth "Who can possess so vast a world? Even if we cannot comprehend this perfection, the intricate balance to which the spider and raindrop, the floating seed and dead crow belong...we are of here, stewards of the mystery of which we are a part."
Now I want to read the conclusion "Kari's Reckoning" of this series of books.
Meanwhile, war is brewing, and the Cull Tarr will stop at nothing to take control of and govern Ellegeance. Catling and the Influencer's Guild are tested past their limits. If they can survive the takeover they might be of use to the new rulers. When it's discovered that the Cull Tarr are unaffected by the influencer's magic, the Influencer's Guild members now become pawns in the hands of their captors.
After the Cull Tarr attack on Ellegeance, the provinces are ripped apart. The people in the lower tiers become slaves. Looking to expand their control, the High Ward authorizes his guards to forcibly evict the Farlander's from their homes and businesses.
As the High Wardens expand their territories, the Cull Tarr way of life becomes the law of the land. That leaves the native people of the planet, the Farlander's, embroiled in a war they didn't ask to be part of. The Farlanders are ready to sacrifice their lives for the land they love.
No longer part of Catling's life, Whitt has fallen in love with Sim, a Farlander he met when he was a child. Sim teaches Whitt the ways of the kari, the spirits of the land. Luminescence is the lifeblood of the planet connecting them to each other and the wilderness that surrounds them. Sim possesses the knowledge of kari magic and she uses it to their advantage.
Before long, Whitt understands that the planet is sentient, a force that holds more power than the humans can imagine. As the war rages on, the kari manipulate events to benefit the planet without regard to who might survive the human war.
This series has captured my heart. I find myself bewitched with the magic of the sentient planet and the luminescence that flows and links each of the books in the series to the other. D. Wallace Peach is a master storyteller weaving a tale of suspense filled with the enchantment of a far-off magical land. The characters are rich and multifaceted, often filled with surprises I didn't see coming. They do not disappoint.
The next book in the series is Book IV - Kari's Reckoning. In my emotionally connected status to this series, I feel the end of the saga approaching. Sadness grips me. I don't want the magic to end. Stay tuned...

Farlanders' Law (The Rose Shield Book 3)
D. Wallace Peach did an amazing job with her world-building. She contrasts the life of the people who live in the tiered cities with the people who live in the swamps and forests. Everything is unique, and vibrantly real. Not an orc to be seen, thank heavens.
She has given us a very young queen who is too reliant on her glasses of wine, and senior advisors whose ultimate loyalties are not to her, or even to the nation. We have heroic men and women trying to save their nation from malevolent outside forces. And we have a select few who are gifted with powers that sometimes even seem incomprehensible to the ones who own them. No one is perfect. Some flaws are worse than others. Other characters are truly noble.
We also have characters who change over time, some for the better, some not.
There is a great deal to admire with these books. Enjoy.
