From the publisher:
On the north side of Lord's Promenade, positioned arrogantly behind a massive iron gate monogrammed with an oversized gilded 'J' stands Janzar's Tower.
The diameter of a small house, it clears a full three-stories, with a taller spire that dwarfs the surrounding courtyard trees. The carved quartzite facade depicts thick serpentine coils in braided patterns that helix along its perimeter. Flakes of minerals deposited in the stone make the tower glisten during the day, and at night, they catch light from lanterns and streetlamps bathing the tower in an eerie yellow glow.
In stark contrast to the glittering tower, the building serving as its foundation seems strangely out of place. A large austere structure, its rough gray granite walls supported by heavy fluted columns give it a somber appearance, not unlike a mausoleum.
