The Moon and the Sun
By Vonda N. McIntyre

In the court of Louis the Roman Numeral, some dude caught a mermaid, and the French aristocracy proves it will eat anything. Throw in a love story, some courtly junk, and lots of descriptions of bedazzled clothes and you got a long ass book. Will the sea woman be free or will Louis the Sun King eat it and become immortal? Find out, I guess.


No outright bans or challenges, but I guess the sea person community would be pissed. There's talk about religious intolerance, violence, sex, menstruation, slavery, and tons of bullshit about aristocracy.
