Its foundations rested on the largest privately owned island in the city, which lay between arms of the River Tynnet and the River Tone. The high wall that girt it was topped with barbed spearheads and torches that threw their light on the swift water below. Its gate, however, was open, revealing the full sweep of the stairs that reached from the Tone's edge to the threshold of the Tower itself, and there too the doors gaped wide. Inside, firelight set monstrous shadows leaping over the ceiling and walls of the vaulted entrance way. Outside, obsidian sheathed walls soared up one hundred and fifty feet to the clawed toes of the four stone demons whose interlocking wings encircled the top of the edifice. Above their outthrust heads was a band of high, clear windows, brilliantly lit, then a balcony, then more windows, this time of richly hued glass, and finally the stone tracery of the dome under which Ozymardien's great collection was kept.

↑God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 7: The Feast of Fools" — " 'Lit up like a shrine and open as a whore's legs, […] He's mocking us, he is. Tower of Demons indeed! Everyone knows he only has one.' 'One is quite enough,' said Raffing with a grin. 'Look at its record: in the thirty years since the Tower was raised, no thief has gotten so much as a clay pot out of it yet.' "
↑God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 7: The Feast of Fools" — "There really was something arrogant about all this openness, she thought as she climbed the steps, a kind of contemptuous challenge thrown down to the whole mad city,"
↑God Stalk, Book III: Shroud of Days, "Chapter 14: Untempling of the Gods" — " 'We should be able to see the Tower of Bats near Judgment Square from here, and Fumble's Folly, and look: Edor Thulig is gone.' "
