The setting for this book was well written. You felt like you were on the Ohio river, aboard the boat interacting with the characters. That being said, there were two things that disappointed me about this book. First there was the language, while not terrible, didn't add to the story at all. The second was the introduction to a supernatural nightmare in the story. This element of the story was just confusing. I felt as if I was being thrust out of historical fiction and into science fiction. The nightmare did nothing to add to the story and was distracting to say the least. The characters in this book were so well written. I gave it four stars, it would have had five if it weren't for the nightmare sequences.
