September Books 7) Dreamstone Moon, by Paul Leonard

The next Eighth Doctor Adventure in sequence after Longest Day (and the parenthesis of Legacy of the Daleks). A fairly standard romp - exploitation of alien planet (turns out the dreamstones of the title are similar to the rocks in Sherri S Tepper's 1987 novel After Long Silence / The Enigma Score), with the wrinkle that the Doctor and Sam are apart for almost the entire book and remain parted at the end. There is one memorable tentacular alien character, Aloisse. But nothing very outstanding about this one.
