Princess Juliana rules the tiny kingdom of Liralove, renowned for its lush gardens, its art of finely spun wires, and its great structural towers, the Architectons, which serve no purpose but to please the eye. But Juliana has been neglecting her duties as ruler, and has not noticed the discontent that has grown amongst the youth of the capital city. She learns of a secret sect that lives illegally inside the great Architectons, but she cannot believe what she hears about their strange practices. Juliana becomes determined to discover what has made the young people so angry and self-destructive. and she vows to go to any length to find out the truth.

In this modern-day fable, beautifully illustrated by wood engraver Wesley W. Bates, Russell Smith combines romance and adventure, and presents fascinating conflicts between art and public policy, elitism and bohemianism.
