Soon to be a major motion picture.
“Inspired by tales of ancient sea-monsters, McIntyre spins a marvelous alternative-history fable about greed and goodness, power and pathos set at the 17th century court of Louis XIV, France’s glittering Sun King…. McIntyre vividly re-creates a Versailles poised on the cusp between alchemy and modern science. Her imaginings enliven her history with wonder, but, as in the best fantasy, they serve less to dazzle by their inventiveness than to illuminate brilliantly real-world truths — here, humanity’s responses, base and noble, when confronting the unknown.”

“The Moon and the Sun is, quite simply, a breathtaking novel. Vonda N. McIntyre, best known for her science-fiction/fantasy tales, here weaves a story of love, betrayal, and redemption that will enthrall readers across the genres. This belongs on a shelf labeled ‘The Best of the Best’.”
