Inhaltsangabe zu „Last Train from Perdition (I Travel By Night)“ von Robert R. McCammon

In I Travel by Night, master of horror Robert McCammon introduced the tortured and instantly unforgettable vampire adventurer Trevor Lawson—All Matters Handled—as he searched for his maker, LaRouge, in hope of becoming human once more. It wove a tale about the terrors of the Dark Society, featuring the gothic sensibilities of old New Orleans, and the unforgiving violence of the untamed frontier of 1886. Now McCammon returns to Lawson's gripping journey and sends him West, in the chilling sequel novella Last Train from Perdition. Ever on the hunt for LaRouge, Lawson still travels by night, but no longer alone. Crack-shot, whip-smart Ann has become his companion, on her own search for her vampire-taken father and sister. Lawson has been summoned from New Orleans and the Hotel Sanctuaire to Omaha by a wealthy man who needs his son retrieved from a band of outlaws. Lawson and Ann agree to take the case and travel to the town of Perdition where they find their prey—but things get complicated fast when a saloon shootout leaves an innocent girl badly injured. On a night train from Perdition to Helena to find medical help, it soon becomes clear that Lawson and Ann's enemies may also be looking to prey upon them. As they struggle against those forces of darkness with a trainload of their most unlikely allies yet, Lawson also wages battle with the darkness LaRouge left within him. This latest installment in Trevor Lawson's battle for redemption finds bestselling McCammon at his thrilling best.

    Last Train from Perdition (I Travel By Night)

    Trevor Lawson, the vampire gunslinger for hire, is back and he gets a new assignment: bring back the 'black sheep' son of a wealthy man. So Trevor and Ann travel to the town of Perdition, where they hope to find lost Eric. But in order to get him home, first they have to take on his new 'family' of gangsters - little do they now that this will be the easier part of their mission...Of course, Trevor is also still searching for La Rouge, the vampire who turned him, in hopes of regaining his humanity. I love this torn character with his constant fight against his dark urge. Every night he seems to lose more of his humanity, most evident in his changing bodily appearance, but still he clings to what is left of it, hoping to regain everything one day. Will he be able to win the battle against time and his constantly growing inner demon?'Last Train from Perdition' is the perfect sequel to 'I Travel by Night' - maybe too perfect at times. The writing is flawless and the action plenty, though the characters are mostly predictable. It's hard to explain - I really enjoyed this story very much, but somehow it kept its distance instead of 'sucking me in'. I felt perfectly entertained but not exactly thrilled. Does that make sense?
