- You may be looking for the titular moon.
However while they both appear throughout this novel, they do so separately. Sam and the Doctor do not meet, though they do see each other at a distance.
Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
Sam is on her own, but her distance from the Doctor doesn't make for a trouble-free life. Rescued from an out-of-control spaceship, she finds herself on a tiny moon which is the only known source of dreamstone, a mysterious crystalline substance that can preserve your dreams — or give you nightmares.
Pitched into the middle of a conflict between the mining company extracting dreamstone and ecological protesters, Sam thinks it's easy to decide who the good guys are — until people start dying, and the killers seem to be the same species as some of her new friends.
Meanwhile, the Doctor has tracked Sam down, but before he can reach her he's co-opted by the Dreamstone Mining Company and their sinister military advisers. Suddenly, it's war — and the Doctor is forced to fight against what he believes in. He alone suspects that dreamstone isn't what it appears to be. But nobody's listening — and nobody could dream who the real enemy is...
