Alluveterre was one of the Black Swan's secret hideouts. The name means "the sands of dawn" and was gifted to the Black Swan by the dwarven king. The Black Swan views it as a testimony of the planet's power to re-create itself, because while directly above it is human pollution and destruction, underneath there is life. It has been compromised, due to Keefe joining the Neverseen, and thus can no longer be used.
The only way to get to Alluveterre is through a secret passageway that only Sophie, her friends, Della, and a few other Black Swan members know how to get to. It is far away from the human world, but near Thailand in Europe, according to the map in Unlocked.
Description[edit | edit source]
There is a common area between the two treehouses with an arched bridge and black gazebo. This connects two trees on either side of the river, creating a staircase going up to the treehouses. The one on the east is for girls, the west for boys. The girls' treehouse has rugs made of fall leaves, flowering branches with berries all over the walls and ceiling, sculpted furniture that looks like shrubs, and a waterfall in the center. The common room in the boys' treehouse is decorated like a campsite, complete with indoor trees and a ceiling that glittered with stars. There is also an enormous fire pit in the center, with flames that burn in every color of the rainbow.
Involvement[edit | edit source]
When Sophie and her friends are isolated from society for treasonous acts, they are forced to go to Alluveterre to conceal themselves from the Councillors. Alluveterre was Sophie and her friend's second home until the Councillors removed their banishment sentence. Mr. Forkle and the rest of the Black Swan's Collective also visited frequently to communicate with Sophie and her friends. Tam and Linh lived in it for a while, but Alluveterre ended up being compromised when Keefe stole Tam's crystal and escaped to Alluveterre with an unconscious Alvar.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
“The dwarves view this place as a testimony of our planet's power to recreate itself. Above us is a barren wasteland of human pollution and destruction. But look what has surged to life in the safety below, thanks to a little light and a little peace.”
