The Dizznees are known for being quirky and untraditional, so many are surprised by the refined beauty of their family home. Rimeshire resembles an ice castle with its blue cut-glass walls and swirling towers that look like upside-down icicles. It's located in The Gloaming Valley (near the Alenon River, where the wild Kelpies live), surrounded by snow-capped mountains and twisted evergreens trees - which makes Rimeshire one of the colder places in the Lost Cities. But the temperature is still pleasant - and it's also fitting, given that Juline Kalea Dizznee is a Froster. Part of her garden even included a collection of shockingly lifelike ice sculptures, which she creates as a compromise which her rambunctious triplets, who would prefer to have a pet, but are willing to settle for a new ice creatures every day (which is much easier for their already overwhelmed parents to manage).
“Rimeshire was definitely the chilliest place Sophie had visited in the Lost Cities — aside from the entrance to the Sanctuary in the Himalayas. Even the architecture of the Dizznee’s house reminded Sophie of an ice castle. All the walls were built from blue cut glass and fitted together into sharp, dramatic angles. And the five swirling towers looked like upside-down icicles. But there was still something inherently warm about the place. Maybe it was the bright light glowing through the walls. Or the curls of white smoke coming from the spiral chimneys. The house was also massive—probably bigger than Everglen. And the grounds were just as expansive. The landscaping was simpler, but it matched the stark valley: twisted evergreen trees lining each of the silver-stoned paths, and wide plains of jade green grass leading into the rolling foothills.”
