Flood of Fire by Amitav Ghosh. Review.

This is the final book in the Ibis trilogy . In this book the story is mostly told through the eyes of Kesri , Zachary and Shirleen.
This is probably one of my favourite books in this trilogy and the parts of the story between Mrs Burnham and Zachary were amongst my favourites , often humourous with laugh out loud moments these characters were impossible not to like. Some of the characters from book 2 were back and it was great to catch up with what they were up to since the last book . Then we met Shirleen who's entire life changes when she gets horrifying news of her husband , she then begins a journey both emotionally and phiisical . Kesri is Deeti's sister who we got to know well in the first book, his work life is primarily what drives him and he is a very sensible noble character. As this was the last book it did feel very final and it was sad leaving these characters and the opium wars and the ships that a lot of the story was based around and on. If you enjoy books about the sea and glimpses into history then this is the story/ trilogy for you.
