River of Smoke, the sequel to Sea of Poppies, was named one of the best historical fiction books of 2012 by NPR.
River of Smoke by Amitav Ghosh. The sequel to Sea of Poppies definitely does not disappoint, and I think in some ways I liked it better. This book takes place (mostly) in Canton, China in the months preceding the outbreak of the Opium Wars. A very detailed account, Ghosh bases his narrative off of historical documents and artifacts left behind by the real people involved. Many of the characters are based off of real people. It's basically awesome.
