Jocelyn was looking at Raphael as if he were a roach she’d found crawling across her clean kitchen floor. Very slowly she said, “If you lay one hand on Simon, vampire, I’ll have you chopped up into tiny pieces and fed to my cat. Understand?”City of Glass
Simon turned to see what she was looking at—and stared.
Alec had his arms around Magnus and was kissing him, full on the mouth. Magnus, who appeared to be in a state of shock, stood frozen. Several groups of people—Shadowhunters and Downworlders alike—were staring and whispering. Glancing to the side, Simon saw the Lightwoods, their eyes wide, gaping at the display. Maryse had her hand over her mouth.
Maia looked perplexed. “Wait a second,” she said. “Do we all have to do that, too?”
Where’s Alec, anyway? Why aren’t you off choosing him as your partner right now?"
Magnus seemed to wince. “I wouldn’t approach him with his parents there. You know that.”
Clary propped her chin on her hand. “Doing the right thing because you love someone sucks sometimes.”
“It does,” Magnus said, “at that.
He glanced over at Luke and Jocelyn, who were standing close together. “You two,” he said. “Go on, then. Show the faerie how it works.”
Jocelyn blinked in surprise. “What?”
“I assumed,” Magnus said, “that you two would be partners, since you’re practically married anyway.”
Color flooded up into Jocelyn’s face, and she carefully avoided looking at Luke.
The baby opened his eyes again, as if recognising the sound of his name. His eyes were black, black as night, fathomless as tunnels dug into his skull. There was nothing human in them at all.City of Glass
Clary watched him, openmouthed, as his fingertips and feet found impossible holds on the ridged stone. “You are Spider-Man!” she exclaimed.
Simon glanced down from his perch halfway up the pillar. “That makes you Mary Jane. She has red hair,” he said.
Simon snorted. “If you ever meet the man who could take advantage of Isabelle, you’ll have to let me know. I’d like to shake his hand. Or run away from him very fast, I’m not sure which.”City of Glass
"…She wouldn’t even come to the funeral."
“Have you tried talking to her?”
“No,” Jace said, “we’ve been punching her repeatedly in the face instead. Why, do you think that won’t work?”
“Just thought I’d ask. ” Simon’s tone was mild.
They didn’t wear black to funerals, since black was the color of gear and fighting. The color of death was white.City of Glass
People aren’t born good or bad. Maybe they’re born with tendencies either way, but it’s the way you live your life that matters.City of Glass
It was the first time Clary had seen him actually look fully like a vampire since the night he’d risen from his grave, and she stared in horrified amazement, unable to look away.
Sebastian yelled out loud and flung himself backward, landing hard on the ground. He rolled, Simon half on top of him, the two of them clawing at each other, tearing and snarling like dogs in a pit.City of Glass
Malachi scowled. “I don’t remember the Clave inviting you into the Glass City, Magnus Bane.”
“They didn’t,” Magnus said. “Your wards are down.”
“Really?” the Consul’s voice dripped sarcasm. “I hadn’t noticed.”
Magnus looked concerned. “That’s terrible. Someone should have told you.” He glanced at Luke. “Tell him the wards are down.”
Luke looked exasperated.
"Who are you?" the girl mimicked in disgust. "I can’t believe you didn’t recognize me. It’s not like all wolves look exactly alike. Humans."
Clary let out a breath of relief. “Maia!”
“It’s me. Saving your butts, as usual.” She grinned.
But the words that actually came out of Alec’s mouth were quite different—and sounded petulant, even to his own ears. “You never called me back,” he said. “I called you so many times and you never called me back.”
Magnus looked at Alec as if he’d lost his mind. “Your city is under attack,” he said. “The wards have broken, and the streets are full of demons. And you want to know why I haven’t called you?”
Because if Valentine made me a monster, then I suppose he made you a sort of angel. And Lucifer loved God, didn’t he?"
“I’m not an angel, Jace,” she repeated. “I don’t return library books. I steal illegal music off the Internet. I lie to my mom. I am completely ordinary.
