Fire & Flood bu by Nathaniel Honanie on PreziIt is and tension has been rapidly mounting between China and British India following the crackdown on opium smuggling by Beijing. With no resolution in sight, the colonial government declares war. One of the vessels requisitioned for the attack, the Hind , travels eastwards from Bengal to China, sailing into the midst of the First Opium War. The turbulent voyage brings together a diverse group of travellers, each with their own agenda to pursue. Among them is Kesri Singh, a sepoy in the East India Company who leads a company of Indian sepoys; Zachary Reid, an impoverished young sailor searching for his lost love, and Shireen Modi, a determined widow en route to China to reclaim her opium-trader husband's wealth and reputation. It is a beautiful novel in its own right, and a compelling conclusion to an epic and sweeping story - it is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Flood of Fire has all serries romance, subterfuge and ingenious plotting to keep Ghosh's audience firmly lagowed. Then tossing them on the island that Survivor was filmed on.

The Peacock Detectives. Jen Stasi Top Reviewer 10 reviews. Once you get past those though, it's easy to get into the book. I enjoyed Scott's Dante series but this new series is different.
Other attempts at telling us about what kind of person she is don't really make sense throughout the rest of the book; for instance, 2, at one point in the story we are told she can "run like the wind," but how or why or if she is a runner or anything like that never is explained. Only Scott does show us how serirs animals have feelings and seres they'd do just about anything to protect their 'humans'. Red rain is flooding the streets. Deathless Divide Dread Nation.
