I love my wheeled wonder, my palace on wheels, but it's unique and easily remembered.
"Gabe!" the angel cried. Katie pressed back against the wall of the palace. The demons gathered around them, and she saw the flash of Gabe's weapons as he tried to cut a path through the creatures towards them. The death-dealer went down as three demons dog-piled him.
One night he left the beautiful palace which his father had given to him and went out into the world to do good and to help his fellow men.
Darian started towards the palace, intending to take her to bed with him once more before he started his official duties.
It was all that stood in the place where the palace had been.

They looked like massive, angry hornets before disappearing from her line of sight. A branch grabbed her arm this time and threw her back over the treetops. This time, she faced a different direction and saw a sprawling palace the size of a mall.

Katie's heart beat harder as she looked at her destination, not at all certain this was where she should've gone but not knowing where else to go.
The angel found his footing and took her hand. They raced through the last of the jungle and across the expanse of grassless yard between the jungle and the palace. The sounds of demons grew louder.
Toby took the lead, and the demons, Death and Gabe disappeared as Katie rounded the corner of the palace. The angel released her and raced into the palace and up a set of stairs.

The interior of the palace was unlit, and the darkness of evening crept into the hallways.
He took off running toward the palace, his demon vision guiding him in the darkness. Kris followed closely, and they burst onto the yards surrounding the palace.
He feared the palace would go down with Death, what with the nonsense she was spouting about leaving. He took in his best friend's features, uncertain whether becoming Death was a good thing or not. Gabe looked the same, and hopefully, he wouldn't turn into the riddle-talking sociopath that preceded him.
He trotted down the stairs from his palace to the apple orchard that stretched from his home to the imperial city beyond.
Her gaze flickered towards the other end of the orchard, where the White God's palace had been.

All signs of the palace were swept away, replaced by neat lines of apple trees that ran all the way to the beach beyond.

If the king were a minor, the mayor of the palace supervised his education in the capacity of guardian (nutricius), and often also occupied himself with affairs of state.
When the custom of commendation developed, the king charged the mayor of the palace to protect those who had commended themselves to him and to 1 The mayors of certain cities in the United Kingdom (London, York, Dublin) have acquired by prescription the prefix of "lord."
The mayor of the palace thus found himself at the head of the commendati, just as he was at the head of the functionaries.

After the Turks were driven from the city in 1878, it was in many respects modernized; but something of its former character is preserved in the ancient Turkish palace, mosque and fountain, the maze of winding alleys and picturesque houses in the older quarters, and, on market days, by the medley of peasant costumes - Bulgarian, Albanian and Rumanian, as well as Servian.
