    ...a swirl of cloudy colors seemed to live just under the surface of the metal: bruise purples, sea blues, earth browns, cloud grays, the deep green under heavy-foliaged trees, the clustering shades at the mouth of a tomb as evening falls over a deserted graveyard.... If there was such a thing as shadow-colored, it was the blade of the subtle knife.

    You really can't find a single line of description in that entire novel on your own? Go to *any* page where a new location is introduced and just pick one. It's not that hard.
