This novel is a fast-paced paranormal romance with a great plot. The setting is a perfect fit for the narrative - Victorian era London seems to be a plausible place for ghosts, evil professors, and general paranormal activity. The romance portion of the book was a bit of a shock to me because I normally don't read that genre, but it was definitely steamy and continued to make the tension between Phaeton and America palpable throughout the novel. The writing is incredibly well done and the characters are believably flawed and exciting to read about. The added mystery and steampunk aspects of the series only heighten the adventure and make it all the more exquisite. Fans of paranormal romance will devour this book and eagerly await the third installment in the series.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
But my favorite characters are the ever cocksure Phaeton Black and the beautiful America Jones. They make such a delicious, loving and sexy couple! Their brains and their banter make for wonderful dialogue......or foreplay!
The Moonstone and Miss Jones is a continuation of The Seduction of Phaeton Black, though you don't have to read book one to appreciate Moonstone. But this book does end on a cliff hanger. Personally, I think series books ought to wait until at least book three for a cliff hanger (especially at this price). To do otherwise is a bit cocky, or Phaeton-like. But I am not going to let this particular opinion of mine keep me from reading book 3 soon!
Am not sure about the end of this one, but have already ordered the 3rd in the series - and received it just yesterday. Will see how it goes.
Perhaps I'll need to re-read this one first :-)!!!
"The Moonstone and Miss Jones" doesn't begin where "The Seduction of Phaeton Black" left off. There is a short time span where we learn that Phaeton and America have been separated and Phaeton kidnapped. While hunting Phaeton down, America lands back in London and is attacked while one her way back to their room under the brothel. Phaeton mysteriously appears back in London about the same time, as well. They reunite amid strange goings-on. There is an alternate London, mechanical moonstone stealing spiders, succubi, and treachery abounds. Phaeton Black is a catalyst in a plan that requires his energy and that of the moonstone; the moonstone given to him by an ancient Egyptian Goddess. Now that the moonstone has been stolen from Dr. Exeter, it is up to Phaeton, America, and their new band of protectors to retrieve it and keep it out of the hands of evil.
America also has a secret that takes about half of the book to reveal---ooooh! Mysterious, indeed!!
I don't want to reveal too much so I'll move on to my review of the book as a whole. This book, like all of the other books that I've read by author Jillian Stone, absolutely rocks. I enjoyed every single bit of it. Again, as with Book 1, we have a couple different plot lines that snake their way across the pages of the novel. Each plot line is clearly developed and, due to the nature of each, are completely intertwined.
The entire novel is strong and the plot flows along really well. This novel is fast paced but not so fast that you are left unsatisfied. The characters are solid and I really enjoy their interactions; all of them...not just Phaeton and America.Read more ›
