    Story
    (93)

    The Ibis, loaded to its gunwales with a cargo of indentured servants, is in the grip of a cyclone in the Bay of Bengal; among the dozens flailing for survival are Neel, the pampered raja who has been convicted of embezzlement; Paulette, the French orphan masquerading as a deck-hand; and Deeti, the widowed poppy grower fleeing her homeland with her lover, Kalua. The storm also threatens the clipper ship Anahita, groaning with the largest consignment of opium ever to leave India for Canton.

    Jana says: "Review of Part 2 of the Ibis Trilogy"
    "Mediocre story, further ruined by the narrator"

    Story
    What would have made River of Smoke better?

    The cast of characters from the last book.

    You have a few new characters with interesting storyline, but overall the story is loaded so much with irrelevant information that it becomes tedious.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The next book of course. Hoping that's better.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Robin's accent is jarring and over the top. And most of his story is through letters he writes. Hard to picture such an accent for a letter.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Specially since the first part of the trilogy was so good.
