Waters of Versailles is a historical fantasy about sex, magic, and plumbing. In 1738 France, soldier and courtier Sylvain de Guilherand enlists magical help to bring modern conveniences to the court of Louis XV.

Everyone wants what Sylvain has, but can he control the magical creature who makes it all possible?
