Graphic Novel Review--Fever Moon by Karen Marie Moning, David Lawrence, Al Rio & Cliff Richards

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.

In this all-new Mac & Barrons story by #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning, 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.

Decided to skip on ahead and read one of the graphic novels I have sitting in its own TBR pile, Karen Marie Moning's Fever Moon was at the top of the pile so I read it and devoured it very quickly!!

This is a story told shortly after Shadowfever and since it's been eons since I read that book it took some getting used to the world again, especially with Iced coming out soon and it being years after Shadowfever and Dani is the star character, who is estranged with Mac. Things are not so here.

Al Rio who started work on the graphic novel in 2010 passed away during the two years it took to bring the story to life, Cliff Richards is the artist who finished the novel up. And I think both illustrators did a fabulous job bringing to life the characters I fell in love with in the Fever World series! The colors were stunning and everything was just gorgeous! David Lawrence must be given props too for taking Karen's writing and formatting it into graphic novel material as well!

Onto the storyline, the Fear Dorcha is anther seelie type being and its currently stalking the streets and stealing pieces of people's faces. Seriously! It was kind of creepy, but the illustrations were beautifully done! And when one of the victims hits close to home for Mac, she decides to take on the case despite Barrons' moodiness that is totally Barrons! 

I loved seeing Mac and Barrons back in action, yet it almost seemed like nothing had changed between them pre-Shadowfever, yet as I just said, it's Barrons being Barrons. My favorite alpha male, even though he can be infuriating! I still love him!

It was a rather quick read since it's a graphic novel, but it was still very enjoyable! It gives you the taste of the Fever series with Mac as the star before we head into Dani's version next week!

That pretty much sums it up in a nutshell, and I don't want to get too far into things because then I'd be reading from the book to you! There are a few extra bits of info of the series from Karen and more drawing/sketches of the characters plus character info that made reading them reminiscent of the series. And it kind of helped me to remember bits and details about the series too!

This is one I highly recommend if you read and loved the Fever series! I love reading these graphic novels lately that are based on the series I already love, which I have said before, but it bears repeating!

Overall rating 5/5 stars
