Bold as Love
by : Gwyneth Jones
It's dissolution Summer. As the United Kingdom prepares to break up into separate nations, the Counterculturals have gathered for a festival where everything's allowed. Among them is a talented little brat called Fiorinda, rock and roll princess by birth, searching for her father, the legendary Rufus O'Niall.
Instead, she finds Ax Preston, the soft-spoken guitarman with bizarre delusions about saving the country from the dark ages. And together with Sage Pender, techno-wizard king of the lads, they join the pop-icon team that's supposed to make the government look cool.
