A THRILLING REINVENTION OF THE VAMPIRE NOVEL BY THE MASTER OF MODERN FANTASY, GEORGE R. R. MARTIN

Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that something's amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. The hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York doesn't care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh's dilapidated fleet; nor does he care that he won't earn back his investment in a decade. York's reasons for traversing the powerful Mississippi are to be none of Marsh's concern--no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious York's actions may prove. Not until the maiden voyage of Fevre Dream does Marsh realize that he has joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare--and humankind's most impossible dream.

  • Expected a bit more.

    The idea was great. Really Great

    So why was it made into something more like a mix between commercial romance novel, and pulp fiction entertainer? I love pulp fiction entertainers, and loathe romance novels.

    Maybe that's what Mr Martin went for.... hmmm, maybe not.

    It could have been really, really great. I loved all the steamboat stuff. It was like a 13 yr old steampunk girl's dream.

    I would have prefereed more grit and substance, I would have loved it lots when I was 12. These days I want more meat, less formula.
