Here's a little extract for a taste. Probably not too exciting as its the beginning so mainly consists of introducing. But here goes...feedback welcome!
corridor opened up into the biggest hall Laelin had ever seen, filled with a
mass of children shuffling around in attempt to find their place in the many
rows of desks. The hall hummed with hundreds of muffled voices, and the few
louder sounds of the adults trying to organise the children into their seats.
The hall itself was breath-taking, the rich mahogany wood polished to a glisten,
and the perfect walls were as white as fresh snow. Along each length of the
hall, glinting golden candle holders were set at intervals midway up the
wall. They looked very expensive, and were probably unique to the Study House;
the gold was the finest quality, and delicately twisted into a vine-like
masterpiece, spiralling around thick creamy candles. Each spiral ended at the top
and turned into a big golden leaf, which lipped out and fell to below the
candle itself, the detail in the leaves must have taken an age to complete; the
veins criss-crossing in an elegant tangle. The ceiling was so high, Laelin had
to crane her neck to see it all, and it almost entirely consisted of a huge domed
skylight filled with a mosaic of pale stained glass.
