Library Tales Publishing has released M. Lachi's debut full-length novel, The Ivory Staff, on October 23rd 2015 to a myriad of positive reviews.
Reviewed By Norm Goldman on Examiner.com ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ 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.
Reviewed By Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ "The prose is sharp and ebullient, even in the detailed descriptions of dismal and sinister situations; the conflict builds up through every page, and the plot is flowered with subplots and compelling characters that readers will definitely fall in love with. M. Lachi exhibits the uncanny gift of bringing back the old art of common sense into storytelling, and it is this aspect of the story that creates the striking realism that permeates its every page."
