Description
Blood Bound

  • a pretty little house mostly hidden behind a huge pole building277
  • sat on a couple of acres of land next to the wildlife preserve near Hood Park just outside of Pasco277
  • has a gravel drive
  • the pole barn is motor home sized; that along with strategically planted foliage, protected his privacy278
  • neighboring houses but they were closer to the highway278
  • grass was knee high, and flowers were planted around the edge of the house, long dead280
  • Like the house, the dining room was small but pretty. The floor was oak, antiqued with a white wash that made the room feel bigger than it was. On one side of the room was a brick fireplace. Family photographs covered most of the surface of the mantelpiece. Children and grandchildren, and none of them related to Andre281
  • the kitchen was surprisingly big for the size of the house. Someone had painted the wooden cabinets white, then toll-painted flowers and vines all over. The window over the sink was covered with dark green garbage sacks sealed with duct tape so no light would get through281
  • the basement was a very deep hole dug into the dirt to allow access to the plumbing under the house. There were a few old shelves leaned up against a foundation wall, and some fencing materials. On the other side of the room was a canopy bed straight out of a bodice-ripper romance283

  • cobbles laid by Asil outside the door to keep the mud at bay121

  • the rooms on either side were small and cozy, decorated in purples, pinks, and blues – as if a team of Disney animators had come in and decorated it to make the perfect fairy abode
  • one room held an artificial waterfall that burbled with manic cheer; a twin-sized bed took up the rest of the space37
  • the hall emptied into a cozy kitchen and a narrow stairway lit by skylights and lined with flowering plants growing in various pink, powder blue, and lavender pots
  • at the top was a large room, one side entirely of glass that looked over the water; almost like a greenhouse but used as a studio37

Description
Moon Called

  • road cut into the side of a hill that overlooked the town, and for thirty years, doctors, lawyers, and CEOs had been building their four-thousand-square-foot homes on the steeply sloped lots; the vampires had been there first163
  • end of the main street, a smaller gravel road broke off and cut between a pair of two-story brick edifices; looked almost like it might be a driveway but continued past the houses and into the undeveloped area behind them163
  • a quarter mile through usual eastern Washington scrub; then up over a small ridge that was just large enough to hide a two-story, sprawling hacienda surrounded by an eight-foot wall163
  • the road came down the hill and limited the view of the house through the double, wrought-iron gates163
  • the sweeping Spanish arches that graced the sides of the building disguised the scarcity of windows164
  • ground leveled for parking just outside the walls164
  • the front gates were large enough to drive a semi through them166
  • around the side is a small, open door in the wall for secondary access166
  • building is surrounded by undeveloped scrub outside the gates; the interior grounds were elaborate; the grass, dark and luxurious; roses in protected areas near the house, mums; formal French-style garden, organized beds and meticulous grooming166
  • gardens look odd next to the Spanish-style adobe167
  • grapevines lined the wall; bare in the winter167
  • cobbled path goes past a swimming pool around the corner of the house to a broad swath of lawn; across the lawn is a two-story guesthouse almost a third the size of the main house167
  • guesthouse has an entry hall decorated aggressively in the colors and textures of the American Southwest, complete with clay pots and kachina dolls167
  • the decor was overwhelmed by the smell of mostly unfamiliar flowers and herbs rather than the scents of the desert167
  • potpourri didn't disguise the smell of old leather and rotting fabrics167
  • past the entry hall through the soaring ceilings of a living room into the sitting room hall; half again the size of the biggest room in Mercy's trailer; cozy; not Southwest themed but the colors were still warm earth tones167
  • comfortable; soft fluffy furniture167
  • matching chairs; a love seat168
  • a large window dominated the room168
  • upright piano with a bench tucked into one corner of the room169
  • out of the sitting room through the house to an alcove sheltering a wrought-iron spiral staircase173
  • the stairway went deeper than a basement; small lights on the cement wall surrounded the stairs; they're motion lights; they allow one to see the stairs—travelling down a cement tube; lights not bright enough do more more173
  • fresh air wafted out of small vents that kept the air moving173
  • it goes down twenty five feet from the surface173
  • the stairway ended in a pad of cement; absolute darkness; smell of bleach173
  • motion sensitive fluorescent lights revealed a empty room with cement floors, walls and ceilings; sterile empty effect173
  • through the room and into a narrow tunnel that sloped gently upward; steel doors without knobs or handles lined the tunnel at even intervals; things moving behind the doors174
  • tunnel took a narrow turn, the floor became a steep upward set of twelve stairs that ended in a room with curved plaster walls, wooden floors, and soft lighting; directly opposite the stairway was mocha leather couch with curves that echoed the walls174
  • elevator hidden behind one of the doors in the corridor; leads to the main house
  • opens into a kitchen; bright lights and bird's-eye maple cabinetry, creamy stone countertops; no windows but a clever use of mirrors and backlit stained-glass panels to make up for the lack184
  • next to the refrigerator was an outside door that leads to the manicured lawn184
  • the houses are connected by tunnels184

Blood Bound

  • wrought-iron gates; brightly lit courtyard70
  • huge hacienda-style, adobe house; circular drive70
  • smaller guest house tucked into the backyard70
  • main house front door makes a curious groaning noise70
  • entry way; small sitting room it led into then down the hall; one side of the hall had three doors with arched tops, all closed, but the other side opened into a very large, airy room with a high ceiling and recessed lights71
  • walls cover with brightly colored paintings, some floor to ceiling71
  • walls painted a soft yellow; made it feel bright and cheerful even though no windows71
  • floor was made of dark clay tiles in a variety of reddish browns; light neutral-colored woven rugs scattered about almost at random71
  • three couches, five comfy-looking chairs; coral color southwestern feel, set in a loose semicircle around a large wooden chair Questioning Seat71

Wulfe

Description

Night Broken

  • Wulfe's house was in a housing development that had been an orchard ten years ago. The houses in this one almost escaped that “we were all designed by the same architect and you can pick one of three house plans” sameness. It had been in place long enough for hedges and greenery, but not quite long enough for big trees.
  • The neighborhood was firmly middle-class, with mobile basketball hoops in front of the garage doors in driveways and swing sets in the backyards. The people who lived right next door to Wulfe had a giant cedar kid’s activity center—it was way too huge to be merely a swing set—and an aboveground swimming pool in their side yard. The side yard right next to Wulfe’s house264
  • Though it looked spotlessly clean, the interior of the house smelled265
  • 1950s chrome and green Formica kitchen tables. There were three chairs that matched the table: two of them were knocked over, and the third was tucked in where it belonged on the side of the table266
  • The light over the dining-room table was on, and someone had put daylight bulbs in the fixture because the tabletop looked more like an operating table than a place people might sit down and eat breakfast266

Description

Frost Burned

  • Less than a mile from Kennewick High School, a small Victorian198
  • House needed paint and a little work on the porch. The yard was tiny198
  • House and yard were surrounded by a wrought-iron fence that was suitably elaborate for an iron-kissed fae's home198
  • Furnished sparsely and none-too-fancily despite its Victorian appointments, which included the original light fixtures and fine woodwork. The living room had a matching couch and love seat that were comfortably worn. A small flat-screen TV adorned the wall between two build-in bookcases filled with paperback books. A handmade rug softened the hardwood floor198
  • To the right, a door opened to an eat-in kitchen that had a 1950's-style table for two that had passed shabby and hit antique. On the wall next to the table was a large photo of a serious, young-looking man who looked a lot like Tad. The man was dressed in a suit and standing next to a good-looking woman in a wedding dress with her brown hair in a poofy style common a couple of decades ago198
  • Typically Victorian narrow and steep stairs to the second story and from there to a hallway. At the end of the hall was a half door- two feet wide by three feet tall, the kind of door that would have hidden a linen closet or a dumbwaiter199
  • The room was narrow and long, wide enough, if barely, for three people to stand shoulder to shoulder. The floor was carpeted with layers of Persian rugs that were worth a not-so-small fortune203
  • Unmatched bookcases lined the wall on one of the long ways of the room, ranging from hand-carved museum pieces to boards separated by cinder blocks. The top two shelves of each held a selection of unpainted metal toys. The rest of the shelves were filled with various sharp=bladed weapons. The books, and there were a lot of them, were piled on the floor on the other side of the room. The wall directly across from the doorway was entirely covered by an enormous mirror203
