Fever Moon

Graphic Novel

Mac and Barrons are back but it’s definitely not all sunshine and roses. The walls have crumbled between the Fae and human worlds and a horrific new monster is on the hunt and destroying the few humans still left standing. The Fear Dorcha is able to strip humans of bits and pieces such as eyes and mouths, leaving its victims in a coma like state. Time is running out and Mac only has one chance to protect those she loves.

Fever Moon was one heck of an exciting read. I’ve never read a graphic novel before but I couldn’t resist another Mac and Jericho story. I found myself totally engrossed and even though it was a short read (under 200 pages) I didn’t feel let down in any way. The artwork completely sucked me into the story and I have to be honest, Jericho as an illustration is totally hot! Filled with non-stop tension and drama, Fever Moon is a must read for Moning fans. Just a note about the artwork….it was phenomenal. There’s a beautiful introduction by Ms. Moning in memory of the original artist, Al Rio (RIP) who passed away before the book came to completion and while some others might be able to detect a slight difference between Rio’s work and Cliff Richard (the artist who completed), I wasn’t able to find it. The story moved seamlessly, it left me craving more and I truly, truly hope that we get to see more from the Fever world and I especially would love more in the way of graphic novels!

Book Blurb for Fever Moon

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.
