Gadwick has a large number of dogs, each of which he enjoys speaking about in exhaustive detail.
And the only time we were ever received at his house, as you'll recall, he made Lily sit on a footstool because one of his whiphounds was lying on the sofa and 'must not be disturbed. Gentlemen often keep dogs. One for each dog. I'd have them carry everything up and down all these dreadful stairs.
House Durrow Street by Galen Beckett, Softcover
I'm beginning to think this house has grown taller over the years. Some days it seems I can hardly catch my breath. Lockwell was a plump woman, though still handsome. Besides," she went on, back to exclaiming now, "I've heard it said that Mr. Gadwick has over two thousand regals a year! Murch knows to peel the apples before they're boiled," she said, at which point Mrs.
Lockwell forgot all about Mr. Gadwick and, fearing the ruination of the sauce for that night's supper, hastened from the parlor. Finding herself alone—save for a tortoiseshell cat that lazed on a windowsill—Ivy picked up her book and resumed reading. Soon she rose from her chair and began pacing the length of the parlor, book in hand.
The cat hopped down from the windowsill and followed her paces. Outside the window the storm blew past, and the day faded in its wake. However, the twilight would last for hours, as it always did at the end of a long lumenal. It was not a noise that let her know she was no longer alone but rather a change in the air, and a sensation of being watched. Elder sisters always know when their younger siblings are creeping up on them. Rose is two years older than me, and she never knows when I'm sneaking up behind her. I could be wearing bells and it wouldn't matter.
But you always know.
She was trying to scowl but wasn't doing a very good job of it. Lily had a soft oval face and a pink mouth that seemed designed only for laughing. I never run into walls. But you should run into them, walking and reading at the same time as you do. Why do you bother? I suppose I don't want to waste a moment. So if I can read while I'm out on my errands, so much the better. Besides, walking helps me to think.
When she was reading, Ivy could feel herself filling up with jittery energy, just as the air had that afternoon when the storm was gathering. Walking was her way to release it, her lightning and thunder. She says they used to multiply like mice and that Father was always reading five at once.
I can't picture him without a book in his hands. And another in his pocket. He just gets books out and scatters them around. Do you think it was too many books that made Father mad? Rose was biting her lower lip, concentrating on the tray in her hands as she advanced slowly into the parlor.

Murch had forgotten all about it, as Mother wouldn't stop talking to her. Something about eels or peels, I couldn't tell which. But I saw it sitting on the sideboard, and Mrs. Murch said it was for you. We aren't having eels for supper, are we? Of course, even Lily was taller than Ivy now, and she was only fifteen. Ivy poured a cup of the tea and took a sip. It was stone cold. Ivy smiled. Thank you. She never pressed the keys, but she liked to run her fingers up and down the keyboard, touching first only the black keys, then only the white.
She alighted on the bench, scooting Rose to one side, and opened a book of music. Like this.

A brooding music filled the parlor. Their mother complained that Lily only ever played gloomy songs, and Ivy would not argue that her youngest sister had a proclivity for rumbling and dissonant pieces. However, even Mrs. Lockwell had to admit that Lily's skill was great. Now sensible Ivy Quent wants only to turn her father's sprawling, mysterious house into a proper home. But soon she is swept into fashionable society's highest circles of power--a world that is vital to her family's future but replete with perilous temptations.
Yet far greater danger lies beyond the city's glittering ballrooms--and Ivy must race to unlock the secrets that lie within the old house on Durrow Street before outlaw magicians and an ancient ravening force plunge Altania into darkness forever.
