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.

It was interesting reading a new story from the fever series in a form of a graphic novel. We only meet the Fear Dorcha in the book series for a short while so to see Mac and Barrons defeat this interesting fea was great! It was great to read about Mac and Barrons again after I had a Fever Series marathon last year, reading all the books in the span of two months because I had to wait for the last book (Shadow Fever) to come out.

This graphic novel held my attention from beganing to end. Mac is still the same girl as ever protecting her close friends and running her mouth off at barrons. She is as strong as she was in the fever series books.

Barron's is the same with his fast temper and mean attitude. I still wonder how Mac can stay with him with the way he acts.

What disappointed me a bit with this graphic novel was the romance factor. There wasn't any at all, which I was looking forward to. This graphic novel would have gotten a higher rating if there was romance but the action and adventure to the book did bring it up not to mention the lovely drawing style.

The drawings are so well done it really did surprise me. It gave off the comic book feel right away with the style. I was surprised to hear that two artist worked on this graphic novel. Al Rio and Cliff Richards, the reason for the two artists was because Al Rio died before he could finish this graphic novel so Cliff Richards took over. I couldn't tell the difference between the art work so Cliff Richards did a great job in sticking with the style of the Graphic Novel.
