Jace: "I can't believe you've been stuffing him with fish again. He's looking distinctly podgy."
Isabelle: "He does not look podgy. Besides, none of the rest of you ever eat anything."
Jace: "If you knew how to cook, maybe I would eat."
Isabelle: "WHAT did you just say?"
Jace: "I said I'm going to look for a snack to eat."
Isabelle: "That's what I thought you said."
Looking better in black than the widows of our enemy's since 1234 - Cassandra Clare
"Unfortunately my one true love remains myself." - Jace
"At least you don't have to worry about rejection." Dorothea
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting." Jace
"That's why when major badasses greet each other in movies, they don't say anything, they just nod. The nod means, 'I am a badass and I recognize that you, too, are a badass,' but they don't say anything because they're Wolverine and Magneto and it would mess up their vibe to explain." - Simon Lewis
“What?” Simon looked alarmed. ”I‘m not really sleeping with your mom, you know. I was just trying to get your attention. Not that your mom isn’t a very attractive woman for her age.”
“Meanwhile,” Simon added, “I wanted to tell you that lately I‘ve been cross-dressing. Also, I‘m sleeping with your mom. I thought you should know.”
“It's a girl," Jace said, recovering his composure. "Surely you've seen girls before, Alec. Your sister Isabelle is one.”
“Well, when I was five, I wanted my mother to let me go around and around inside a dryer with the clothes,” Clary said. “The difference is, she didn’t let me.”
“Probably because going around and around in a dryer can be fatal,” Jace pointed out, “whereas pasta is rarely fatal. Unless Isabelle makes it.”
“It's not funny, Jace," Alec interrupted, starting to his feet. "Are you just going to let her stand there and call me names?"
"Yes," Jace said kindly. "It'll do you good-- try to think of it as endurance training.
“Just kissing? How quickly you dismiss our love.”

SummaryAdd a Summary
When clary enters the pandemonium club she hardly expects to witness a murder, especially one that only she seems to be able to see. Beginning with that night Clary gets plunged in to a hidden world of shadow hunters and downworlders. Starting with the disappearance of her mom and moving to the even more extreme, this book will leave you dying to read the whole series!
Great book about demons and Shadowhunters (demon slayers). This book becomes quite dark, interesting, and is a very good book. Highly suggest you read this book!
