“This was illustrated very well. I think they took more time on Mackayla than Barrons. Her facial expressions and certain nuances. The "Juice" tee, which were pants in the book, where never worn outside of the bookstore. So I thought that was kind of silly and some of the dress choices. Mac 5.0 did not wear frilly like Mac 1.0 did. Especially to fight! I think Barrons face was to faery like. He did have big cheek bones but I pictured him with a large square jaw instead of it tapering in. Some of his facial expressions I thought were a bit sloppy and not as defined as they could have been. A tough character to draw for sure! Plus I pictured the "beast" more wolf like than gargoyle (like the tv series only without the wings). Dani looked nothing like I pictured. I pictured her petite but she was to filled out for someone with a fast metabolism. She had the body she would dream of not the body she had. The story was done really well. I enjoyed finding out about the mystery bar faery. I think it had just the right amount of background information without it dragging or taking away from the actual story. I love all the detail put into the fighting scenes. They were very elaborate and colorful. The dialogue was great! I love it when B&M fight like they are children! ”Katie wrote this review Wednesday, August 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Karen Marie Moning is definitely Laurell K. Hamilton's rival. I've never read her novel, but this graphic novel is really good.. the original illustrator Al Rio passed away in midway of the creation of this graphic novel, but Cliff Richards finished the work superbly. I would've thought the illustrations were done by the same person throughout the book. ”sheOnline wrote this review Monday, July 8, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

For those of you who are unaware, Fever Moon is a side story that takes place about halfway through Shadowfever. If you are considering reading Fever Moon to see if you like characters and the world they live in, or if you have not finished the Fever series, I would seriously consider waiting. While Fever Moon works as a stand-alone graphic novel, there are numerous spoilers. Personally I'm very happy I did not read it until after I was finished with Shadowfever.
Fever Moon is an amazing graphic novel, with a solid story and out-of-this-world art. Al Rio, may he rest in peace, passed away before finishing this novel. The last of Al Rio's art can be found in Fever Moon. Cliff Richards was brought in to finish. As to be expected there is a slight variation between the art. I am a novice when it comes to Rio and Richards' work. That being said, I had to really pay attention to notice the difference. Richard did a beautiful job blending his style to match Rios.
If you are new to graphic novels please remember this: The majority of the story is told through the art, not the word bubbles. That is why there will be an entire page with nothing written on it, just art. The bubbles are there to give the art context.
I was excited that the Fear Dorcha is the villain. What's not disturbing about a creepy guy with a swirling void for a face? The fact that he's stealing parts of other people's faces just makes him creepier.
As I said before the art is amazing. Most of the characters were how I imagined them. The only character I have a problem with is Jericho. His body is amazing, especially the abs, but there's just something off with his face. I loved seeing Mac wearing the Machalo. Completely adorkable! My absolute favorite was seeing Moning's vision of the Rhino-boys. They are so much... more than what I had imagined. I will definitely be envisioning hers the next time I read the series.
There are a few extras included in Fever Moon. Some character spoilers and notes about the novels. There are also some original sketches with character notes. While I would not buy Fever Moon simply for the bonus materials, they are a fantastic addition. ”
