A THRILLING REINVENTION OF THE VAMPIRE NOVEL BY THE MASTER OF MODERN FANTASY, GEORGE R. R. MARTIN
Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that something’s amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. The hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua 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’s reasons for traversing the powerful Mississippi are to be none of Marsh’s concern—no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious York’s actions may prove. Not until the maiden voyage of Fevre Dream does Marsh realize that he has joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare—and humankind’s most impossible dream.
The love between a father and daughter is forever. Life has a natural order: we are born, we age, we die. It is a cycle that has repeated itself since the beginning of time and is not to be interrupted. However, when Cami was only twelve years old, everything natural was taken from her. Cami is a vurdalak - a vampire - cursed to wander the earth, plagued with an insatiable hunger. She is pursued by the very one who created her and has learned to harden her stilled heart to survive. Nevertheless… when she meets Richard, a man who seems to hold clues to her past, she realizes that she can harden her heart to survive, but must soften it to live.
Ben Mears has returned to Jerusalem's Lot in the hopes that living in an old mansion, long the subject of town lore, will help him cast out his own devils and provide inspiration for his new book. But when two young boys venture into the woods and only one comes out alive, Mears begins to realize that there may be something sinister at work and that his hometown is under siege by forces of darkness far beyond his control.
