    Summary

    Magnus kept speaking but Alec tuned out.
    How. How was the first person he’d ever had sex with his new boss?
    He continued his pattern, looking at the five objects until he finally felt like he had a better hold on himself.
    Until he looked up just in time to see Magnus’s eyes fall on him.

    Whatever welcome speech he was giving stopped for a moment, recognition flaring in his eyes as he made eye contact with Alec.
    Then he moved on, continuing with the first day speech and Alec felt like his heart might beat out of his chest. Could other people hear it?

    Summary

    Seventeen years old Shadowhunter Maryse Trueblood ends up in the Seelie Realm after a botched mission -- wounded and in need of help. A handsome Seelie saves her and they fall in love.

    Maryse eventually returns to her own world, sick and acting unlike herself. Robert Lightwood inadvertently becomes involved with this, as he is infatuated with Maryse, and the two seek out Magnus Bane for help in searching for a warlock healer to treat her. Eventually this bonds the group, forming a alliance btwn Nephilim & Warlocks...with a secret so incredible yet potentially a threat to the existing order -- that it was voluntarily struck out from Shadow World history by an extensive memory wipe -- everyone forgets, including the warlock enacting the wipe himself.

    With the alliance and all related events erased from memory, friends become foes, the Last Stand of the NY Institute still occurs, and events carry on as everyone knows them today.

    18 years later, to the very date that the memory wipe was enacted, Alexander Gideon Lightwood hears music in the winds swirling about him...along with a sweet yet sinister lilting voice beckoning him to come home...

    Summary

    There's a new Archangel of New York. Magnus has yet to meet him but the Angels are all the same. ‘Fix the wards, Magnus’, ‘Heal our injured, Magnus’, ‘Stay far away from us until we summon you, Magnus.’

    He doesn't expect Alexander Lightwood to be any different.

    (The Guild Hunters AU that absolutely no one asked for.)

    Summary

    Alec immediately regrets the instinctive shift of his feathers, knowing how many Downworld throats have been slit open on nephilim wings, knowing how many times Magnus and his council must have seen that happen. But what’s done is done and moving them back would do nothing. Alec comes to a halt at a respectful distance from the High Warlock and waits. His arrival was without notice and is certainly unwelcome. By both nephilim and Downworld custom the next move belongs to Magnus alone. 

    “Tell me, Alexander Lightwood,” Magnus begins icily, and it’s no surprise that he knows Alec’s name. “What brings the Head of the New York Institute to my door, unarmed, runes inactive, and completely alone?”

    Summary

    Alec finally saw, with the help from Magnus, that he wasn't an useless omega whom no one wanted and that he deserves someone who can, and will, love him. Someone he can spend the rest of his life with. But not everything is as bright as this. Valentine is back and he wants to kill all Downworlders. Also there is a new Shadowhunter. But is he who he says he is?

    Simon and Raphael are going strong, too. Simon decided that he wants to be a vampire, to be able to be by Raphael's side no matter what. But will he get his wish?

    Sequel to True Angel's Wings. I recommend reading that first.
