Entertaining, if oddly slight, cowboy adventure with vampires.

Not much to say about this one. Not one of my favourite McCammon stories, but I'll end up reading the next in the series, when it comes around. ( )

4.5* rounded up to 5!

Robert McCammon has been one of my favorite authors for many years now. His novel "Boy's Life" is one of my favorite books of all time. His older works of horror like "Swan Song" or "They Thirst" were outstanding and they made me a life-long fan. Then came his historical fiction series which is flat out awesome. Then...then came The Five which is not so easily characterized, but just as phenomenal as his other books.

Now comes Trevor Lawson whose business card reads:
All Matters Handled
I Travel By Night

Trevor holds court in the Hotel Sanctuaire located in the city of New Orleans, in the late 1800's. People who have "matters to be handled" seek him out as does Mr. Kingsley in the beginning of this book. It seems that Trevor Lawson has some abilities that cause him to be special, but I won't tell you what they are. You will have to read this and find out for yourself.

Even though this story is set in New Orleans and the nearby swamps, it has a western feel to it. At one point Trevor stops at a bar called the Swamp Root to ask directions and comes upon a card game. Lawson saw "a black glimmer of warning in the eyes and a tightening of the beefy shoulders" of the dealer, interpreting that warning as "approach me with caution."
McCammon writes: "That was like a summons to Trevor Lawson who sipped at his whiskey and brought up his predator's smile..." as he moves in closer to watch the poker game. It's easy to picture this scene as a western movie-the Swamp Root even has batwing doors.

Trevor is a man with faults who is trying to do the right thing, despite all the odds and his own body fighting against him. I just LOVED him, his inner fight, his outer strength...all of it. I would immediately pick up anything else Mr. McCammon chooses to write about him. I deducted .5 of a star because this is a novella and I wanted a full novel. I can only hope that there will be a full novel someday.

Review copy

Trevor Lawson was a good man, a confederate soldier, injured at the battle of Shilo and bitten by the vampire LaRouge. A quarter century has passed and he's still struggling to hold on to the last remnants of his humanity. On his business card, "beneath his name and the address of the Hotel Sanctuaire, was the line All Matters Handled. And below that: I Travel By Night."

Robert McCammon has some serious writing chops and uses them to tell a tight and completely entertaining story that is ripe with the possibilities for as many sequels as he may care to write.

Lawson lives with "the hope that one day he might throw off this heavy burden and find his way back to the sun. But to do that, (he) would have to find—and kill—the vampire he knew as LaRouge. There had been many trails, but always she slipped the moment. The Dark Society protected her, for she was their deathless and beautiful Queen."

I readily recommend this tale of the weird wild west.

I Travel by Night by Robert McCammon, from Subterranean Press, is available as an e-book and on the secondary market as a Deluxe Hardcover signed by the author.

From the author's bio - Robert McCammon is the New York Times bestselling author of nineteen novels, including the award-winning Boy's Life and my personal favorite Swan Song. There are more than four million copies of his books in print. ( )

I Travel By Night by Robert McCammon is a novella about a vampire (Lawsome) who struggles to retain his soul. He was turned by the vampire queen (LaRouge) when he was fighting for the south at the Battle of Shiloh. He feeds mainly on animals, although the urge for human blood is hard to control. He also seeks to find and destroy LaRouge for taking his humanity away. In the meantime, even a vampire must earn a living so he sells his skills to combat evil to help those in need. This is an interesting and enjoyable dark novella that brings Lawsome into ruthless combat with evil monsters. This could be the beginning of a fun novella series, or a full novel, if McCammon chooses to continue this character and storyline. ( )
