When struggling riverboat captain Abner Marsh receives an offer of partnership from a wealthy aristocrat, he suspects something’s amiss. But when he meets the hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York, he is certain. For 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 has his own reasons for wanting to traverse the powerful Mississippi. And they are to be none of Marsh’s concern—no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious his actions may prove to be.

Marsh meant to turn down York’s offer. It was too full of secrets that spelled danger. But the promise of both gold and a grand new boat that could make history crushed his resolve—coupled with the terrible force of York’s mesmerizing gaze. Not until the maiden voyage of his new sidewheeler Fevre Dream would Marsh realize he had joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare…and mankind’s most impossible dream.

Here is the spellbinding tale of a vampire’s quest to unite his race with humanity, of a garrulous riverman’s dream of immortality, and of the undying legends of the steamboat era and a majestic, ancient river.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Alana | 2/15/2014

    " Really gripping! I loved Game of Thrones and have been curious about George RR Martin's other books. I was pleasantly surprised with this one, steampunk vampires ftw! Martin's talent for sculpting characters shines through as perfectly in this as it does in his 'Song of Fire and Ice' series. "

    " Picked up this book because it was on a "10 books that should be made into movies" list that popped up when I signed out of hotmail. Had never heard of it, but it was at the local library so I signed it out. I would NEVER have chosen this book on my own. The genre, the plot, the title... none of these were in the least bit appealing. But once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. And I agree... could make a good movie. "

    " I've never had any fascination with steamboats or any particular fascination with vampires. I picked up this book because it was one that RR wrote a long time ago, and I was interested in seeing his earlier style of writing. I enjoyed this book immensely. I was initially worried because I had read some reviews of this book and many of them said that it was too slow and altogether dry and uneventful, overly descriptive, etc etc. This was not an issue. It was an excellent story with an unusual take on vampires in a unique setting, with a formidable protagonist. Made me a little thirsty though... "
