The Lord of Opium

October 2013

Matt has always been nothing but a clone --- grown from a strip of old El Patron’s skin. Now, at age 14, he finds himself suddenly thrust into the position of ruling over his own country. The Land of Opium is the largest territory of the Dope Confederacy, but while Opium thrives, the rest of the world has been devastated by ecological disaster --- and hidden in Opium is the cure.
