Worlds: Echoes In The Dark

More Research on Abbey Grounds, Cluny Abbey

Inspiration for the Singer's Abbey:
The basilica of Saint Sernin in Toulouse, France at Webshots by skaiteyor


And, of course, King's College Chapel, Cambridge, England
(as referenced first in Protector of the Flight)


As I began Echoes in the Dark, I realized that the map I'd made for Amee and the Dark's Nest wasn't going to work.  There was an area where the ship couldn't go, and I wanted Raine's ship to sail to the Nest, so I made a strait (Strait To Doom).  Here's the Before and After.
(StraitToDoomB-A) attached.

Map of the Ship's Course to the Dark's Nest in Echoes In The Dark


"I've been beyond courtesies for months."  Luthan didn't slow down, but bared his teeth.  "I'll speak to the Singer in person.".... Luthan pivoted and stared to his right.  A small octagonal tower stood with dark arches below leading to what he'd thought was the Friends meeting room.  The arch was matched by the second story windows, the whole was capped with a conical roof and weathervane.  Though the blackness beyond the arches was deep, he didn't hesitate, moved swiftly and found two doors.  One would probably lead to the meeting room. ....
Luthan settled into his balance, grounded himself, banished anger and probed.  Behind the left door he sensed the dampness of rock walls, the slope downward into the heaviness of earth, the secrecy of the Caverns of Prophecy.
