The Shores of Solace is a beach house owned by Lord Cassius. The back patio is made of swirled abalone shell and has cushioned porch swings. The beach itself is a shimmering cove of smooth black sand. This is one of the many "escapes" that Lord Cassius uses when he wants to get away from his rocky relationships with his wife and son. During Nightfall, he asked Keefe to move in with him as part of a deal for information about Nightfall's location. Keefe agreed, despite Sophie's concerns, and now resides there with Lord Cassius and his ogre bodyguard, Ro. Ro refers to it as the "Waves of Wimpiness." The Shores of Solace is also where Sophie's human parents had their minds washed during Nightfall.
It is in the Lost Cities in Australia, according to the map in Unlocked.
In Nightfall, hardcover, on page 775, the Shores of Solace is called the Shores of Solitude.
Unlocked Description[edit | edit source]
Lord Cassius Sencen's beachfront mansion was originally a property that he kept private and used as a place to escape to whenever he wanted space from his family. But since his wife's involvement with the Neverseen was discovered, the Shores of Solace has become his primary residence (though he does still retain a somewhat secret apartment in Atlantis.) The estate is a tranquil single level beach home with a mother of pearl walls and the vine draped arches, sunny patios, and stately decorated in soothing tones of gray and blue. Keefe Sencen lives there for the moment - not by choice - and he spends the majority of his time on the patio lined with cushioned swings, watching waves crash onto a black sand cove.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
“But the house was beautiful. A single, sprawling level with mother-of-pearl walls and massive windows overlooking the turquoise ocean. The scattered rooms were connected by vine-wrapped arches and broken up with sun-baked inner courtyards. Everything was bright and airy. Elegant, but comfortable. Decorated in dove grays and soothing shades of blue.”
