In this brief review it is quite difficult to convey the full flavor of this mesmerizing feast of a book...However, best of all we must not forget Lachi's distinctive, unique and sometimes even chilling voice as she crafts a stunning, sprawling novel where enormous risks are taken, not least that of demanding our understanding for the monstrous and unthinkable. In addition, her development of plot is perfectly calibrated as she maintains all of the elements of the yarn in suspension.

The Ivory Staff is a song for our times...It holds the ability to reach beyond the usual fantasy reader into circles that appreciate complex novels, protagonists, and most of all, political intrigue - and, yes, fantasy settings, and is highly recommended for an audience that appreciates multi-faceted and satisfyingly complex stories.
