If you’re seeking a little light reading from the acclaimed author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series – this steamboat vampire novel set in the 1850’s was pretty interesting. I bought the title on a whim, and because I do love some of Mr. Martin’s other works – including Dying of the Light, which I recall with great pleasure (that one I’ve read a couple of times, and the book has made it through at least 6 big moves in my life). The life and times on the river with Abner Marsh proved fairly interesting, and by the end of the book I was pretty caught up in it all. It had it’s moments, and some fun characters, but this book will be passed along as rather luke-warm. Although, I do have a read-a-holic brother who might enjoy some of the poetic brutality and staunch characters – into the mail to wing your way north, book.
Fevre Dream – Worth a look, especially if you can borrow it from a friend. : )
