“I don’t care if the whole world comes down around us, Jules, the most important thing is that you live.
"Please,” he said, desperation clear in his voice. Whatever is happening, we’ll fix it, because we’re parabatai. We’re forever. I said that to you once, do you remember?”
She nodded warily, hand on the phone.
“And the strength of the rune your parabatai gives you is special. Emma, you can do it. You can heal me. We’re parabatai and that means the thing we can do together are… extraordinary.”

Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.

Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could the murderer be the same person? And her attention isn’t the only one caught: someone has been murdering Downworlders as well. The Fair Folk make a deal with the Institute: if the Blackthorns and Emma will investigate the killings, they’ll return Mark Blackthorn to his home. The catch: they have only two weeks to find the killers. Otherwise it’s open war between faeries and Nephilim.
