Ok…so this is my first ever graphic novel. I was a bit reluctant because it’s not normally my kind of thing, but I just had to read this since it was part of the fever series by Karen Marie Moning.
This story takes place sometime during the last book, Shadowfever. In this book, Mac finds herself being targeted. But, she is not the outright target. This Unseelie, the Fear Dorche, is targeting those who are important to her. The Fear Dorcha does not have a face of his own so he must take pieces from 15 different people. This leaves the people in a state of coma. It is up to Mac, who then also drags in Barrons, to find and kill the Fear Dorche.
Fever Moon was very well written and it highlighted all of the characters we know and love from the fever series. With that being said, this was not my favorite in the fever series. It felt kinda disjointed at times. I kept feeling like I was getting lost in parts that I have previous knowledge about. I couldn’t quite pin down when this happened in the books and that really bothered me. I finally decided it must be a time within the final book because she already knew what Barrons was and she wasn’t fighting with Dani. Another, disconcerting part was the images in the book. I know that comics and graphic novels always go over the top with the character designs, but I felt kinda let down. I really didn’t like the images of Mac or Barrons. In general the scenes looked good like Chester’s and the streets of Dublin, but overall the characters definitely were not what I thought they would look like. The first time I saw the image of Mac I thought ” Whoa! Huge boobs”. That was quite off-putting and kinda detracted from the story. Overall, I thought it was good, but I’m not sure if I’m going to be a graphic novel girl. I totally get the interest in them, but for me it distracted from the series instead of enhancing it.
