An all-new Mac & Barrons story by #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning, marvelously adapted into a full-color graphic novel by writer David Lawrence and illustrator Al Rio

In Fever Moon, we meet the most ancient and deadly Unseelie ever created, the Fear Dorcha. For eons, he’s traveled worlds with the Unseelie king, leaving behind him a path of mutilation and destruction. Now he’s hunting Dublin, and no one Mac loves is safe.

Dublin is a war zone. The walls between humans and Fae are down. A third of the world’s population is dead and chaos reigns. Imprisoned over half a million years ago, the Unseelie are free and each one Mac meets is worse than the last. Human weapons don’t stand a chance against them.

With a blood moon hanging low over the city, something dark and sinister begins to hunt the streets of Temple Bar, choosing its victims by targeting those closest to Mac. Armed only with the Spear of Destiny and Jericho Barrons, she must face her most terrifying enemy yet.

I have not read the books this is based on so can't comment on how well it was adapted. For me it was a little too heavy on the paranormal romance and not enough on the urban fantasy I was hoping for. I did like the artwork though.

Beautifully drawn with a fast paced plot. Was more than slightly uncomfortable with the reference to rape early in the story:"I was drugged and raped by the dark unseelie princes--with fae magic, they forced me to love it even as I hated it."Aside from that reference I enjoyed this and would read more in the series.

Rated 5/5
The Fever series is one of my favourite series of books EVER. So when I saw there would be a graphic novel, I had to get my hands on it, even though I'm not much of a graphic novel fan in general. I have to say I was surprised by how stunning the illustrations were (although initially they didn't match my internal vision of the characters, they very quickly grew on me), and how easy it was to follow the story. As for the story, it wasn't complicated, but it still took me a little while to remember which unseelie creature was the culprit of all the mysterious maimings, and I enjoyed getting to "see" how McKayla & Barrons defeated the creature.Well worth the read, whether you've read the Fever books or not.

I am not a graphic novel reader. It isn’t that I am opposed to them or I don’t like them, I just tend to be less of a visual person and more into detailed story lines. But I am going to put my cards on the table here and admit something — if Karen Marie Moning publishes it, I will read it and I will likely buy it at the first day release price. I may also buy the hardcover, the ebook and the audio version.The illustrations in Fever Moon are beautiful, detailed and worth examining for all fans of the Fever storyline. Like anything, the illustrations deviated what I had held in my mind and imagined to be Mac, Barrons, Dani, etc. I have to admit that I was bothered by what seemed to be the sexualization of Mac’s rape. The images portrayed the scenes from Fae Fever in not so much a terrifying way but in a sexual way. Also, what the heck happened to Mac’s boobs? Where they always that ginormous? And Dani was in no way an awkward teenager as described in the books, she is the opposite of awkward. I did not like these deviations. But oh well, I went with the story.Quite a bit of the story is filled with memory flashbacks or a retelling of the first four books in the Fever series. For most fans, I think they will enjoy seeing these key scenes brought to graphics. But this does amount to less of a new storyline being told. The story is interesting and it takes place before the conclusion of Shadowever but after the beginning of Shadowfever. So for those of you who have read the series, Mac knows what Barrons is. Mac and Barrons are on the search for the book but get sidetracked because a horrible thing is stalking people in Dublin. Once the story reaches the 1/2 way point, it becomes rushed and seems less developed. It does, however, come to a satisfying end (I would say of course, but we all know that KMM is the queen of unsatisfying ends!)So do I recommend this graphic novel? Well, if you are like me, I couldn’t dissuade you from reading Fever Moon no matter how I reviewed it. I don’t think Fever Moon adds anything truly new or amazing to the Fever Story, but it was nice to revisit my favorite characters. So yeah, if you are a fan then read it.

Rated 5/5
An exciting new story from Moning's Fever universe told in graphic novel format. The story takes place after the end of Shadow Fever and features the Fear Dorcha, who is stealing faces and is after Mac. Beautifully illustrated by the late Al Rio.
