Review: Fevre Dream By: George RR Martin

Fevre DreamFevre Dream by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

George RR Martin has made a masterpiece in this vampire novel set along the Mississippi. The imagery comes alive, engulfing your senses, entering your imagination and mind's eye.
Abner Marsh, a riverboat captain who is down on his luck, is approached by a stranger offering a business partnership to make his dreams come true as long as he doesn't ask any questions. Abner's dream of creating the biggest, fastest steamboat that could take all others becomes a reality. Through the beauty of silver, crystal, mirrors, and wood carvings lives this great boat, The Fevre Dream. But not all dreams are good and when something shines so bright it can tarnish easily.
Joshua York holds his secret from Abner for as long as he can and once the truth is revealed, so is something or someone truly ugly and evil, Damon Julian.
Amazing multi-demensional characters, wonderful and detailed writing leaving the reader long afterwards still within the pages.
