    Summary

    A pacifist raised in a warrior culture, Aleksander has been the subject of his father’s ire since he was old enough to spurn the sword. But after years of scorn and abuse, Alek finally gathers the courage to do what he’s always wanted: leave. Equipped with information that could mean the salvation of an entire culture, Alek sets out to find the dreki - a race of magic-weilding shifters - and warn them of his father’s quest to eradicate their kind.

    Magnus Bane, celebrated leader of the dreki, has given up everything in order to help his people. When he accepted the mantle of Drakkson, he did so knowing that life’s ordinary pleasures were forbidden to him. Magnus was happy to make the sacrifice and has never regretted that choice – until he meets Alek. Beautiful, brave, and shockingly innocent, he's everything that Magnus didn’t know he wanted and the one thing that he can’t have.

    Thrown together out of necessity, Magnus and Alek quickly move from open hostility to begrudging respect. But with war looming on the horizon and the dreki council breathing down their necks, forging a way forward together is impossible – unless both men are willing to turn their backs on everything they believe in.

    Summary

    Magnus and Alec are matched through the Clave’s system, a system designed to find one’s true love. The two connect right away, however, there's one catch: their relationship is only destined to last just under a day. Matched with other people, Magnus and Alec start to wonder just how much they can trust the Clave. Can they trust a system that seems to defy what their hearts wants?

    Summary

    Magnus Bane doesn't have a lot of friends, and he's not what people at Idris High would consider 'cool'. Recovering from a heartbreak and struggling with his anti-lgbt grandfather, he's trying to really focus on his acting hobby so he doesn't end up going back into the dark hole he had been on a few months earlier.
    Alec Lightwood, in the same year as Magnus, looks like a supermodel and comes from a very influent family of lawyers, which makes him a part of the popular gang in school. He lost his sight when he was 6, so he can't fully wrap his head around the fact that such a big part of his life in school is shaped by the way he looks; and it actually really annoys him sometimes. Alec's life is driven by rules and tradition, and he's okay with it, for the most part; however, he wants some independence, and while searching for it, he stumbles across Magnus, who's just as repulsed by other people's standards and expectations as him. They find themselves inevitably gravitating towards each other, but seeing is deceiving, and sometimes you need to look within to embrace what's right in front of you.
