    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"
    "Fascinating continuation of Sea of Poppies"

    What did you love best about River of Smoke?

    This is a fascinating continuation of the story started in Sea of Poppies about the opium trade between India and China in the first half of the 19th century, and its global ramifications. An intriguing set of characters, customs and events bring this obscure period of history to life. Beautifully performed. I would have liked to hear about a few more characters from volume 1, and look forward to volume 3.
