MARTIN Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that something’s amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. Fevre Dream runs red with original, high adventure. Los Angeles Herald Examiner.

American writer, screenwriter and television producer. In 1982, Martin published a vampire novel titled Fevre Dream set in the 19th century on the Mississippi River. Unlike traditional vampire novels, in Fevre Dream vampires are not supernatural creatures, but are rather a different species related to humans created by evolution with superhuman powers.

Fevre Dream، c1982, George . Martin Fevre Dream is a 1982 vampire novel written by American author George R. It is set on the antebellum Mississippi River, beginning in 1857, and has been described by critics and Martin himself as "Bram Stoker meets Mark Twain".

Fevre Dreams George RR Martin. CHAPTER ONE St. Louis, April 1857. ABNER Marsh rapped the head of his hickory walking stick smartly on the hotel desk to get the clerk's attention. Till the rest of his days were done, Abner Marsh remembered that moment, that first look into the eyes of Joshua York. Whatever thoughts he had had, whatever plans he had made, were sucked up in the maelstrom of York's eyes. Boy and old man and dandy and foreigner, all those were gone in an instant, and there was only York, the man himself, the power of him, the dream, the intensity. York's eyes were gray, startlingly dark in such a pale face.

Fevre Dream is a very early George . It’s about vampires on steamboats. This book was released in the early eighties, and so it’s writing is not quite up to par with his Song of Ice and Fire opus, but you very much see him already getting there. I have no idea why anyone else would need further description. It’s such a well-crafted, clever book. It made me appreciate Martin, the writer, a lot more. A bit of warning, though: Like I mentioned before, this book is set during the Plantation Era, and obviously slavery and racism weave their way through the book in major ways.

Very engaging, with characters you care about right from the start. Excellent period piece with a lot of knowledge of the era of steamboats. Will appeal to a wide variety of people. Whether you like historically accurate fiction, are a steamboat fanatic, have an interest in vampires, or are just looking for a well crafted novel, I highly recommend this book. If you have only watched Game of Thrones, spoiler alert, not everyone dies in this book.

Fevre Dream is a very early George R.R. Martin affair. It’s about vampires on steamboats. I have no idea why anyone else would need further description. I assume everyone would want to read it immediately after hearing that. Antebellum vampires! On steamboats. They are on ‘em. I mean.

It’s a very thrilling and very brutal story and I enjoyed every page of it. A curious mix between Interview with the Vampire and I Am Legend.

It’s funny, I’ve never really considered GRRM to be one of my favorite writers, but reading this one made me realize how much I do admire him as one. This book was released in the early eighties, and so it’s writing is not quite up to par with his Song of Ice and Fire opus, but you very much see him already getting there. It’s such a well-crafted, clever book. It made me appreciate Martin, the writer, a lot more.

A bit of warning, though: Like I mentioned before, this book is set during the Plantation Era, and obviously slavery and racism weave their way through the book in major ways. The dialogue is chock-full of the pejorative language and racial slurs of the times, as well as some brief but brutal depictions of abuse against black people. In fact, my main criticism of the book consists of this: GRRM could have certainly reeled these aspects back great deal more. (He does kind of attempt this, near the end, by having one of the main human characters, who is introduced as being ideologically opposed to slavery but doesn’t really do anything about it, help the Underground Railroad for a time. But this consists of literally one sentence and seems so tacked on that it is almost laughable if it wasn’t so sad.)

Still though. If you have the patience and willingness to stomach these rather tired tropes, you will fine a hell of a story. I don’t like to use the term “ripping yarn,” because I don’t live in a Sherlock Holmes mystery, but this is the kind of story that warrants it.

What a treat! It’s like peeling an orange and finding a juicy interior. I was transported to another age…a time of magnificent steamboats and river races, when the sharp contrast been opulent living and squalor is vividly brought to life. Set mostly pre Civil War, some of the passages are difficult to read, others so vividly dazzling it’s like sinking into the brush strokes of a painting.

I liked the major characters, Joshua York and Abner Marsh, especially the noticeable contrasts between them. This is an unlikely pair, vastly different in everything from temperament to looks and manner of living. Yet they complement each other perfectly and the slow progression of their relationship from business partners who are wary of each other, to steadfast friends is believable and well presented.

If I have anything negative to say about the book it’s that I feel it could have been made shorter. There are a few parts that become bogged down and lose momentum. I found myself skimming a few sections that felt too similar in nature. A lot of these related to Damon Julian, his followers and the lengthy discourses we get from Joshua about his past.

My favorite part of the novel is the definitely the first half before Joshua encounters Julian. I liked the mystery of that part of the book, of Abner Marsh trying to decipher Joshua’s peculiar habits, of not knowing why he behaves as he does. Once the mystery is revealed and Joshua and Julian begin to clash, that’s when certain sections started to lose the impact the first half of the book carried. At least for me.

I can’t say enough, however, about the feel and presentation of this novel. It’s so richly textured it easily transports you to each and every scene. Spectacular climax and spectacular ending!

I have no idea why this book lost my attention. I usually devour GRRM's work, and I've never had to fight to keep reading him. This one fell short somehow. I just didn't connect with any of the characters the way I normally do with GRRM; if there had been a single character that I *had* enjoyed, I'd have continued just to see how their own plot turned out. Perhaps my expectations were too high after reading his other work? He's still absolutely on my buy-immediately list, because I have since read other things he's written, and not encountered the same "meh" feeling I had during this. I will also admit that this was a DNF for me. I made it 3/4 of the way in. Perhaps it finished well and I just didn't get there. Alas, when I picked this up, I had a huge TBR pile and couldn't afford to waste my reading time on something that was only mildly entertaining me. I have high hopes that GRRM will redeem himself in the future. He's an excellent storyteller and has long ago earned my loyalty and my continued coin.

Don't read this book expecting it to be anything like Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. However, it was written just as well and hooked me into the story and characters right away. I had no idea what this book was about when I began reading it. I, like many other people I assume, purchased this because I love his fantasy epic and needed something, anything to satiate my hunger for more George R.R. Martin prose. This book definitely did not disappoint. I absolutely love this genre and Fevre Dream is no exception. But it is exceptional. If that makes sense! Its perfect mix of 19th Century America with fantasy and lore was right on. I'm looking forward to reading Martin's other non Ice and Fire novels and short stories.
