Clary and Jace are attempting to live with each other as siblings instead of lovers. Clary is also trying to preserve the friendship he shares with Simon, her anime-watching, manga-reading pal. Jace is trying to live with knowing who his father really is-the main antagonist, Valentine, as well as being constantly questioned and poorly treated by the Inquisitor, a hateful impatient woman among the clave-the Shadowhunter government. Then a series of events occur that greatly alter Clary's as well as Jace's and Simon's lives.

“I don't want to be a man," said Jace. "I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can't confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead."
"Well," said Luke, "you're doing a fantastic job.”

“You see, cuckoos are parasites. They lay their eggs in other birds' nests. When the egg hatches, the baby cuckoo pushes the other baby birds out of the nest. The poor parent birds work themselves to death trying to find enough food to feed the enormous cuckoo child who has murdered their babies and taken their places."
"Enormous?" said Jace. "Did you just call me fat?"
"It was an analogy."
"I am not fat.”

"I don't know," Magnus said. "Does he normally just lie on the floor like that without moving?”

“Is standing by the window muttering about blood something he does all the time?" asked Simon.
"No," Jace said. "Sometimes he sits on the couch and does it.”

“Mom. I have something to tell you. I’m undead. Now, I know you may have some preconceived notions about the undead. I know you may not be comfortable with the idea of me being undead. But I’m here to tell you that undead are just like you and me … well, okay. Possibly more like me than you.”

“No, I'm just a very naughty boy. I do all sorts of bad things. I kick kittens. I make rude gestures at nuns.”
