Fantasy • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1982

Martin's novel about a pre-Civil War riverboat is as powerful and pertinent as when it was written in 1982. Ron Donachie's exquisite performance brings the audiobook to life, masterfully evoking the best of the classic vampire stories—before vampires were all handsome 20-year-olds. Little can be revealed without ruining the carefully balanced plot, but this audiobook should be on everyone's must-listen list. A mysterious gentleman becomes a partner in a new steamboat set to cruise the Mississippi. The “Fevre Dream” ends up the finest steamboat on the river. Through the power of Donachie's skill, listeners will smell the river, taste the gumbo, and get to know characters like mighty “Hairy Mike,” the ex-slave Tobey, and the evil vampires that lurk along the Mighty Mississippi.
