Now there was a subtle and terrible turn to London, as though something in its foundations had shifted out of line.
The London Eye was still standing, thought it had fallen into disuse after the day when enthusiastic tourists went up on one side of the enormous wheel and vanished into the circling cloud above. [...] The Tower of London and its environs were abandoned by nearly all normal people, the magical emanations spinning in the cyclonic cloud overhead radiating its own fearsome aura. [...] Even the clock tower of Big Ben–one of the most iconic London landmarks–had not gone unscathed. It was missing an entire corner, rumored to have been disassembled by a swarm of gargoyles who had built a nest around the enormous bell from which the tower and its clock borrowed the name.
