In City of Glass Clary will learn that the truth is open to one?s perception of what truth is. She will feel as if she is being lied to, but she is actually hearing the truth. When Valentine?s Forsaken attack Clary?s friends, they are forced through the Portal with Simon, the vampire. Daywalker. Alicante has very straight forward Laws. Break any of those Laws and the sentence is death. Simple. Desperate to help her mother?s recovery, Clary uses her unique special ability with runes, and forces a Portal open that lands her and Luke, in the Lake Lyn. Naturally, the Clave finds out about Simon, and he is imprisoned by the new Inquisitor. Clary and Jace?s weirdly uncomfortable romance is continues. (It reminds me of Luke Skywalker and Princess Lea, in Star Wars; before they found out they were siblings.) Aline and Sebastian are introduced to further challenge their relationship. The family Penhallows are friends to the family Lightwoods for getting their sentence lightened, for being part of the Circle. Sebastian will be the one to lead Clary to Ragnor Fell. The only warlock able to help Jocelyn. However, Magnus Bane will intercept Clary, and send her after the Book of the White. The youngest Lightwood, Max sees someone climbing the Wards. Alicante is attacked by demons! Jace accepts that he has demon blood in him, and the brother and sister will learn what the Seelie Queen meant when she told them that Valentine did experiments on them, with their discovery of Ithuriel. The Shadowhunter?s only hope at defeating Valentine and his army of demons summoned with the Mortal Sword Maellartach is with the Downworlders joining their fight. Which is logically sound, until all groups, (werewolves, fey, warlocks, and vampires) demand a seat on the Council? Simon stands in the way of the vampire?s way of existing. The Seelie Queen will grant one favor. More shocking secrets are surfaced! Clary will reveal not only that she is Valentine?s daughter to the Clave, but also she will reveal her ability to the Clave to save them. In truth, I wonder if it is going to be enough in order to defeat Valentine, his demon army, and stop his summoning of Raziel, to gain the one favor that will change Nephilim.
