It's a YA Paranormal. It reflects an important magical object in the novel that the story revolves around. Originally our working title was HARLOW after our male lead.

"That's no moon..."
Okay, no more Star Wars. But I do think that the title makes sounds a lot like SF, just off the bat. But titles are wedded to covers, so that might not be an issue, depending on the art choices. That's the thing about debating titles alone: they are so rarely used in isolation. You almost always see the cover, which represents the book's genre and tone in countless ways. So, it's cool, but I'm not sure I'd guess Paranormal from the title.

I like Iron Moon a lot better than Harlow. I could definitely see it being a YA Paranormal. It would catch my attention.
If anyone has a moment and wants to be very kind, take a look at my query or synopsis!

I immediately thought of the iron mother goddess.^^

But moving past that, I like the title, Iron Moon. It has a nice ring to it.
I am in some desperate need of synopsis help and am willing to return the favor.

Aaron has a good point, both about it sounding like SF and that the title set against the cover matter enormously. The premise of this group of threads was basically would you pull this title off the shelf if you saw it. I always looked at that as a spine issue rather than a cover issue, but if the title is engaging, then the cover needs to seal the deal. And if the book is on a table with its cover facing you or on a screen with its cover apparent, then obviously both hit you at once.
In my opinion, Iron Moon would cause my hand to grab the book; Harlow, not so much.

Death Star is what comes to mind for me.
I'd actually consider using Harlow or Harlow and the Iron Moon.
Harlow stands out. Iron Moon feels like Steampunk Death Star

Iron Moon brings to mind something beautiful and solid for me. Like... a literal moon of polished iron gleaming in the sky instead of the moon we know. It's pretty and mysterious. Harlow sorta sounds like a street name to me

I also prefer Iron Moon to Harlow, but IMO you maybe better think of something else, that would hint about the content and would be catchy and unique.
