The Lord of Opium is about Matt, the youngest drug lord. He owns Opium, the most healthy country. He has wildlife and good soil. This allows him to grow the Opium in mass amounts, but in the fields he has people who have microchips implanted in their heads working. They follow any order, and cannot do anything by themselves. People call them zombies. Matt's goal is to stop the opium production, and save the people with microchips.
I think that this book is really good. It kept me entertained, and it is in a series. I have read the first book, House of Scorpion. I really hope that there might be a third book. I think that if you are in high school, you would like this.
