Its façade was broken by gigantic windows that reflected a rainbow of colours. The palace was flanked by two waterfalls that filled the chasm running far below them; a chasm that was bridged by a staircase of monstrous size.

It dwarfed anything that Kammy had ever known and she had never felt as alive as she did in that moment."
