I generally have trouble coming up with "favorites," even within narrow genres.If I had to choose though, The Ivory is my favorite (set of) fantasy book(s).Easily.The blending of the Science Fiction and Fantasy elements is elegant.The protagonist, Theodora, comes from a culture similar enough to our own to allow us to access the fantasy world on Ivory as though we are transported there ourselves, but she also comes from a culture somewhat removed from ours, giving her a compelling biography we wish to discover.

The fantasy world of Ivory strikes me as remarkably original. Amidst a sea of formulaic magical worlds with the same medieval or Renaissance-inspired cultures, burdened by variations on feudal systems, the world of Ivory offers welcome relief.It seems to live in a transitional cultural and political state, complex and unique to its own situation (rather than directly mirroring great cultural shifts in our history).One of the best parts of Ivory is how multi-cultural it is.I have found that in many fantasy novels attempts are made to create different cultures within the fantasy world, but many of them often are shallow in their depiction.Egan creates fully formed cultures that subtly suggest how they may have come about in relation to each other while retaining their distinct characteristics.Cultural change functions as it does in our world, but the cultures are unique to Ivory rather than being facsimiles of groups on Earth. And all of them struggle with alien cultural contact.

And it's only fitting that Ivory would be so well-developed culturally, as Theodora is a scholar of folklore.She looks at this alien world with an anthropologist's eye, and the scholarly world she comes from seems like the natural culmination of our "ivory tower." Theodora's scholarly lens helps tie everything together.

I can't say enough good about The Ivory. Read it. You'll love it.
