THE MOONSTONE AND MISS JONES
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Stone’s second steamy steampunk tale showcases her vivid imagination and wonderful, cheekily irreverent dialogue. You will be amused by the role-playing sexual trysts and the enthusiasm with which our hero and heroine embrace the accoutrements of modern life on their forays into a future London. However, the sheer number of good guys, spirits and villains muddle the plot — and keeps this from being a great book.
Phaeton is back in London after being shanghaied in China. America Jones catches up with him, and they join up with a team of Nightshades to locate the missing, mysterious Moonstone — which is connected to the disintegration of a parallel future London. Various factions are after the Moonstone, and it’s hard to know who to trust. With a plot featuring a pregnant Miss Jones, cohorts with mechanized body parts, mechanical spider rats and plenty of sexual hook-ups, Phaeton is in for a wild ride as the “chosen” caretaker of the Moonstone.
