Castle in the Lake

Childhood home of violante's mother. Approached by the mist-covered

Impregnable Bridge. Appears to float on the Black Lake, which is also

known as the Giants' Mirror because the enormous creatures once

came there to gaze at their reflections in the water. It is said that there

are man eating fish in the waters of the castle. The castle has

a windowless, multitowered facade, but the walls of some of the

rooms inside are painted with wonderful pictures-book scenes,

and the Hall of a Thousand Windows in the west wing is flooded

with daylight. Scene of the final struggle in inkdeath. Also where The

Adderhead courted Violante's Mother and helped her escape from her

father and live with the Adderhead.
