This review contains some spoilers for the Fever series

If you haven't already read the Fever series - perhaps you are thinking of trying this out as a sample before reading - I would highly doubt you'll get much from this apart from a bunch of series spoilers. This could work as a standalone story but I think part of it's charm and part of the reader's ability to care is based on the assumption that you already know and love these characters. Seeing as this describes me perfectly, I enjoyed thi

As seen on The Readventurer

This is a surprisingly coherent and well-written graphic novella (it's a bit too short to be called a novel, IMO). Very often graphic novels are nothing more than money-grabbing ventures, when the same story is sloppily repackaged in a different format. Fever Moon, to me, is not only a novella that offers some new content, but it is also a well-adapted story, unlike, let's say, The Exile: An Outlander Graphic Novel, that wasn't cohesive and wasn't laid out properly, in

I'm not into graphic novels, but it's Mac and Barrons, so I may have to take a look!!

5 star art, 2 star story.

I'm a big fan of the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. It's a world that's rich and intriguing. And complex after five books and a full story arc have been published. Which is where the problem with Fever Moon comes in.

The story starts out fine, but as we roll to the climax, it falls apart. Suddenly canon is completely broken on several levels and in such unnecessary ways it just seems deliberate. Or slap-dash to end the thing without too much fuss. That's how it feels

I wasn't planning on buying this because 1. I've never really been interested in graphic novels 2. It seemed kind of expensive and 3. The plot sounded kind of boring. However, even with all those negatives, I couldn't help thinking I was missing out on something. I finally gave in and decided to get it when I was given a gift card, I thought why bloody not?! I'm technically not using my own money and at least I'd finally stop wondering about the damn thing.

Do I regret using my gift card

3.5 stars - - rated up for the beautiful graphics. 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 beau

This is definitely one that fans of the Fever series will not want to miss. It doesn't necessarily add much to the series, it can almost be treated like a novella, but it definitely satisfied a craving that is forever hiding beneath the surface for most of us fans (and left me even more eager for Iced: A Dani O'Malley Novel). It was really awesome being able to envision the characters despite the fact that I didn't exactly agree with their interpretation of Barrons. For me, Barrons is more of a ...more

Graphic novel + the famous Fever series?
Oh yeah!
Alas, the illustrator, Al Rio just died. May he rest in peace.

My first reaction to the news about this comic was

"whaaaaaaaaaaat, holy crap really!"

But then after I thought about it, I was contemplating on whether I should buy this or not. I love the Fever series, but a comic, really?
This made me have my doubts, plus I was quietly aching for another book installment of the Mac and Barron's story. I thought Fever Moon was a side story that happens after Shadowfever so that we could FINALLY see Mac and Barron's together.... ya that's sadly not it.

Honestly

Review posted at Demon Lover's Books & More

4.5 It wasn't quite a 5 for me, but it was close.

I'd forgotten how much I love the Fever world. This one seems to fit in right in the middle of Shadowfever. I loved all the notes and extras at the end, it was pretty cool to see.

Basically this is a short part of something that happened in Shadowfever that we never saw. I'm not one for manga or comics, so I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this-I was wrong. It was great. We see The Dreamy Eyed Guy, Barrons, Ryo

A new story set in the Fever world?!
*Ohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygod!*
Or that would have been my reaction before I read Iced.
My actual reaction to finding this sitting on the shelf at the library was a lot less enthusiastic.
Phbbt. Guess I'll check it out...

I'm happy to say that this was an awesome addition to the original Fever books. It's a Mac & Barrons story, and there is only a brief appearance by Dani.

I love all things Fever but if this also helps Al Rio's family in any way I am all for the purchase of this book. Please buy this book everyone!! Rest in Peace Al...I am in awe of your talent as an artist. Your gift will live on.

Edit since purchasing...

I love this book. It's like an appetizer of further depth into Shadowfever. Absolutely stunning artwork with the same spark and snarky-ness between Mac and Barrons you would expect. I miss them!!! lol...Go and buy this book even to keep as a piece

The Story:

I am a mega fan of Karen Marie Moning so I just had to check this graphic novel out. FEVER MOON: THE FEAR DORCHA is a brand new story that happens around Dreamfever/Shadowfever time. If you haven’t finished reading the series, there is some mention of events that happen in the books that will be spoilery, so read at your own risk! I liked the story with The Fear Dorcha. He’s was an unusual villain, but I thought the adaptation of Moning’s storyline into a gra

An excellent visualisation of the Fever series. I had premature doubts about the character sketches, but I eventually adored them. Barrons is as sexy and vital as we have all imagined and drooled over, and Mac is stunning. The supporting cast is also drawn pretty well, although as a friend noted, Dani's 14-year-old breasts are incredibly unrealistic (in the sense that they could serve as flotation devices).

The major settings of the book (the book store, the abbey and Chesters) are recreated viv

Review with possible spoilers. I have mixed feelings about Fever Moon. I am simply overwhelmed by the beautiful artwork. Al Rio did amazing work, and I would recommend this book to anyone based on the artwork, alone. So sad that Al Rio is no longer with us, and I am sad for Karen Marie Moning and the sense of loss she must be feeling. I have never ventured into the world of a graphic novel until now, and I was unsure what to expect. Karen and Al both did an excellent job of presenting this story ...more

Great Graphic Novel. From front to back it will only take you a couple hours to read. BUT for a real FEVER or KMM fan, this book is a keeper. I normally read everything on my nook, but ordered this book from B&N so I could see it and feel it, and boy was it worth it. The book is beautifully done, and if you love, or have ever loved the look of a good comic, this has a got it all.
The storyline didn't seem like anything entirely new. It didn't pick up where her last book ended, which I thought

Curious to see how Fever will translate into graphic novel form. I'll take my Mac & Barrons any way I can get them lol

Al Rio's art really is great, it captures the darkness of what's happening in Dublin during the story without being too literally dark to enjoy, it sill has a lot of energy, movement and emotion. And when appropriate the frames are beautifully completed into real pieces of art capturing the city, the scene in a club, a church, even just the background while they're driving, but it's a completely detailed piece of art, not just sketched in background place holders.I'm not a big graphic novel fan, ...more

Review:
For all you Fever lovers, this is a must read/have. I'm a lover of graphic novels anyway, but even if I wasn't, I would have wanted to read this for the new story. Despite it being a good length for a graphic novel, it didn't have as much word-count as I hoped for. Either way, it was a fun read and I was super excited to see the characters comes to life.

This story takes place after the walls are down (the walls that separate the humans from the fa

It's sad that there is so little of it - especially knowing that it took about two years to complete it. I can just say that it's great to be back in the Fever world - I really missed it... especially with some of my goodreads friends re-reading it lately and tempting the shit out of me (when I have all those books waiting to be read!). [Anzu, I'm talking about you;p]

The story doesn't bring anything new to the story, but it's still a fun episode. I love seeing Barrons acting a bit jealous here a

Oh man, this did NOT help my Barrons addiction!

That man is just absolutely delectable! The way he crunched down on Velvet's name, I got shivers... I didn't even mind the ridiculousness of the giant 'B' belt buckle he was sporting, lmao. I mean, I want a giant Barrons belt buckle.

So fun, glad I have it. I missed Mac and Barrons so much.

3.5 stars for the plot & 5+ stars for the beautiful artwork

I think that Karen Marie Moning is one of the best authors out there. The way she is able to tell a tale and create a world in your mind based on just her amazingly descriptive words is not an easy feat but she does it with finesse. Fever Moon: The Fear Dorcha doesn’t have the quality of good story telling that the rest of the fever series did. This is partly due to the fact it is a graphic novel. That being said it is a beautiful g

In general, I struggle with graphic novels because I like to picture the characters with my own imagination, and I generally dislike how they are defined for me. in this particular comic it went with a very traditional comic book route of the women all featured as all boobs and tiny waists, slutty clothes that's just gross objectification of women and the men are all overly muscular and huge. It's like a parody of the characters that cheapens them for me. The books are way better than this. Even ...more
Katrina
I really miss Mac and Barrons. I've never ever read a graphic novel before and this was a different experience. The story was interesting and fun, but the main event was the pictures of the characters from the Fever World. I can't say I liked the comic version of Barrons, the B belt buckle was so not Barrons,but hey it's the artist's interpretation. Also the whole comic just felt too masculine for my taste. Still if you're a Fever fan, it's a nice addition to the collection.
Elisha
I REALLY wanted to love this. However, I was able to finish the entire "book" within an hour. It was more of a summary of the prior books with no new plot line. While the art is beautiful, I prefer to use my imaginations more realistic (less porn) version of the characters and settings. Still looking forward to the next novel, but wish I had saved my money on this.
Jessica
I thought the Fear Dorcha was interesting, and he was drawn in a creepy way. Unfortunately, that's the only thing I really liked about this. I thought the story was okay, but it definitely wasn't worth the price I paid for it. :-/ If there are any more graphic novels in the future, I may skip them and just stick to the novels.
Lisa
I thought I wasn't going to get this book because A. I'm not into graphic novels but more importantly, B. I was so pissed with Moning that she decided to do this book instead of a continuation to the fever series. I realize I can't stay mad at Moning that long. Plus, I really want to see the fever series in print.
