Fever Moon
by Karen Marie Moning
Del Rey; $25; 185pp
Release Date: July 10, 2012

This is a graphic novel based on the dark paranormal universe created by Moning in her five book ‘Fever’ series. Just so you know straight off: This has a major spoiler for the readers of the series as we see Jericho Barrons true form. And it’s a doozy.

Since this is a graphic novel it has great speed, color and dazzling images. The Fear Dorcha, an Unseelie horror we met up with in book five “Shadowfever,” is running amok in Dublin and attacking people close to Mackayla. So she needs to hunt the monster down. With Jericho and Dani O’Malley’s help, of course. There is also a tasty visit with the sexy Seelie prince, Velvet. Very yummy.

The draw of this book is of course the visualizing of Moning’s ‘Fever’ world. Brazilian artist Al Rio with help from artist Cliff Richards brings to life with great ZING the paranormal horror the world has become since the walls between the fae and human worlds have broken down and chaos reigns supreme. On these pages is a stunning smorgasbord of straining pecs, tightly clothed crotches, plunging cleavages and big tits galore. There are scenes obviously of graphic violence and some sex—so this is a more mature-rated effort than PG-13.

What can I say? You’ll be buying this to see Moning’s characters brought to vivid life. Barrons is totally buff and MacKayla of course wears very stretchy short tops which usually says “I’m a Juicy Girl” that accentuate a bust worthy of Angelique of Hollywood billboard fame. There’s drool-worthy images for all of us to enjoy.

Moning also gives us a look at how she developed her series and biographies of characters accompanied by black and white artist’s sketches.

And as for the spoiler of Barron’s true form? Well, not my cup of tea exactly but he completely fits the world Moning displays here: good/bad; unlovely/exquisite—everyone has good and nasty sides.

And that’s what keeps things on the boil in the ‘Fever’ universe.

Truly, this is a no brainer purchase for fans of Moning’s series. ~~ Sue Martin
