New York Times Best-selling author, George R. R. Martin, presents FEVRE DREAM, an antebellum story of power, loss, and the fever of bloodlust. Abner is hearing strange rumors about his partner, and it's getting harder for him to defend Joshua after some of the things he's seen himself. It's one thing to have odd sleeping habits -- but to *never* leave his cabin during the day? Marsh made a promise not to push for answers... but when he goes looking, anyway, what he finds is only going to leave him with more bone-chilling questions! And the dangerous Damon Julian continues to maneuver his brood like chess pieces on a board, but what game is he really playing, and how high are the stakes? FEVRE DREAM stays faithful to Martin's original dark vision, while bringing the torture and joy of his vampires to almost-human life.
