Publisher's Summary

In a world fueled by greed and corruption, where airships rule the skies and coal mines have been turned into prisons, Scarlett Moon has one goal: survive. Being tough and looking out for herself is the only way to stay alive, but when her best friend, Rory, is arrested and returned to the mines, all of Scarlett's carefully built walls threaten to crumble.
After being rescued by an airship full of pirates, led by the sexy and irresistible Asher Kimura, Scarlett finds herself surrounded by cons and fugitives, and thrust into the middle of a coal-smuggling business. When they take her to Columbus, the one place she never wanted to set foot in again, she wants nothing more than to get away. And her discomfort only grows as she becomes increasingly drawn to Asher.
But everything changes when she discovers there may be a way to rescue Rory. Enlisting the pirates' help, Scarlett sets out on a mission to save her friend, praying that her overwhelming attraction to Asher doesn't mean the end to her freedom - in more ways than one.

Dystopian Steampunk Adventure/Romance

Imagine yourself in a world where almost all technology has been banned and even children are sentenced to coal-mining prisons. Greed and corruption run rampant and sky pirates abound. This is the world that exists for Scarlett and her friends, where each day is a fight for survival.

This was an interesting story and I really enjoyed it. I found it fascinating that one of the few technologies allowed was an embedded barcode microchip in every citizen. Businesses were required to scan every customer before they were allowed to make a purchase, obviously intended to monitor everyone. The story was centered around Scarlett's plan to rescue her friend Rory and her romance with Asher. Although Scarlett was a bit annoying at times, many of her behaviors were a coping mechanism to deal with past tragedies and a dysfunctional society. Heidi Drennan's performance as narrator was one of the highlights for me and she did a marvelous job. Moonchild was a fun listen and I would recommend it.

Dystopia with romance and steampunk.

I found this to be more of a romance, which I don't mind but I felt this took over the book more then I expected it would. I also didn't really believe in their love for each other and I found Scarlett to be annoying at times. I did not really like her as the book progressed which is weird since I liked her at the beginning.

The narrator is really good and she voiced each character and gave them there own personality.
