City of Ashes.
Cassandra Clare. Is love worth betraying everything?
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend.
But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go—especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. May 18, 3: May 17, 2: Clockwork Angel was my first historical Shadowhunter book, and the beginning of the Infernal Devices trilogy.

EW talks YA: You can't resist these swoony summertime romances Aw! Love the descriptions of Magnus and Alec and why they work so well together! And now back to plumbing morally gray areas of ideological dissent.
The group tries to convince the Queen to aid them in the defeat of Valentine. The Queen says she is not sure if she will help and also mentions how their court knows deep secrets, like how Jace and Clary are their father's "wonderful" experiments come to life.
The group becomes confused and decides to leave. However, Clary is tricked into consuming faerie food, and is only able to leave by kissing "whom she most desires". Simon offers to kiss her, but the Queen tells him he is not the one "she desires most".
Clary and Izzy suggest that the kiss might be from Jace. The three are reluctant at first, because Clary is Jace's sister, but after Izzy insists that she too would kiss Alec to free him, Jace kisses Clary. The kiss suddenly becomes intense and passionate, and afterwards Clary is free, proving that Jace's kiss is the one she most desires.
This hurts Simon, and he storms off after they return to their realm. Jace and Clary confess their love to each other, Clary is torn between her love for Jace, and the taboo against it because they are blood relatives. Jace suggests keeping a secret relationship, to which Clary replies that it would eventually be discovered and that she is unwilling to lie to their friends and family.
Later, vampire Raphael shows up at the Institute with Simon, who is on the verge of death.
The vampire explains that Simon's small initial intake of vampire blood as a rat made Simon believe he was turning into a vampire, and he went to the Hotel DuMort to see Raphael. He then was devoured by vampires, mixing his blood with theirs. Thus, as the only way left to save him, Simon is buried and transforms into a vampire, which causes a distraught Clary to ignore Jace as a result of her concern over Simon and his new undead status.
While discussing how to potentially tell Simon's mother about his vampire transformation with Clary, Maia the werewolf comes into the house with wounds too severe for Luke to treat. Magnus heals Maia while Luke decides to check outside to see if the demons are still there. Luke is attacked and gets badly injured. Jace, Simon, and Clary battle the demons outside of the house. The demons flee after seeing Clary's rune on her forearm which she got during a dream of her mother blessing her.
They return to the house to rest with the others and end up talking about the remarkably powerful rune Clary used to free Jace earlier. Clary reveals that it was something she just thought of, and everyone opposes her, saying that nobody can simply make up a rune as they are created by angels.
Clary is dared to make a new rune, and she ends up making a "Fearless" rune, as suggested by Jace. They try it on Alec, whose parents and sister arrive suddenly. Alec suddenly approaches his parents, saying he's seeing someone who is a Downworlder.
Magnus magically silences him before he says who he is dating. Alec claims not to remember anything, and suddenly gets nervous and defensive when asked who he is dating, leading them to believe that the rune actually worked. Everyone decides to sleep, but Jace secretly takes Raphael's motorcycle and meets Valentine at a ship.
