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.

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.

Never been into the whole fascination and hype over the concept of vampires, especially after they were made main stream and romanticized by the Twilight series. But George RR Martin is my favorite author so I decided to give this book a chance. He did not disappoint. Never have I read a fantasy that was so full of historical relevance. The book completely blew the top off my what I thought a vampire story could be. Martin has a way of taking something completely unfeasible and humanizing to such an extent that it becomes almost scientific rather than fantasy. The narrator Ron Donachie also get a 5 star. He is very good at reading in different voices for the various characters, feels like there are multiple narrators.

An extremely underrated novel from a write who got way too famous for the wrong books. Personally, I think this is a better book than Interview With A Vampire. (Although, I may be alone in that opinion.)

I loved this book and it was the first one I've ever listened to by George RR Martin because I love Games of thrones and was curious about his first books from the 80's when he was a young writer just starting out. The narrator Ron Donachie was fantastic in bringing the book to life.
