    Summary

    Alec spends most of his days studying law, writing articles for a local newspaper to pay for his apartment, and trying not to completely break down after his baby brother has been diagnosed with leukaemia. He’s a busy man, there’s no time for rest, and there’s for sure no time for love on his schedule.

    Every single of Magnus’ days is the same. Work, home, drink and a marathon of Project Runway. Every day besides Wednesdays, when he comes to a local hospital as a volunteer and offers some comfort for its patients. Even if his life is boring, it’s stable. And he definitely needs stable after his last relationship. He’s not looking for love. It’s still too soon.

    But when fate makes both of the men cross paths, they start to feel something special. Something they have never felt before. And even with their contrasting lives, there’s always time for some love, right?

    Summary

    Things haven't been good between Alec and his boyfriend Rhett for a while now, Alec knew that what was going on wasn't right, that it probably wasn't good for him, but how could he walk away from the only person that saw him as a somebody and not a nobody?
    Perhaps, with the help of a friend that Alec didn't really know he had, he'd be able to see that he did deserve better and that most importantly, better was achievable. To get there though, a breaking point has to be reached so that he can finally understand that walking away is a perfectly okay thing to do.

    Summary

    The Uprising showed to Shadowhunters and Downworlders that there was something irrevocably wrong with their way of living. The Downworlders united forces and refused to sign the Accords, they didn't want to be put down anymore, they demanded equality. The Clave, knowing that they wouldn’t win in a war against the Downworlders, especially without the Mortal Cup, decided to work together with them, creating new laws.

    It would all be good, if almost seventeen years after the Uprising they weren't still having problems reaching an agreement. The Downworlders didn't trust that the Shadowhunters could see them as equals.

    A marriage was proposed.

    Alec had always known he would have to marry someone he didn't love one day, he had never imagined it would be like this, he had never imagined it would be a Downworlder.

    Summary

    ~

    "You have a choice to make. I will not ask again."

    Magnus Bane's ultimatum shook Alec to his core. Quietly, Alec and Lydia called off their engagement. Reluctant to face the resulting questions and speculations, Lydia returned to Idris, leaving the Institute in Alec's capable hands.

    Free from his impending marriage, Alec faces terrifying dilemmas. Is he ready to confront Magnus Bane? What should he say? Does the spellbinding warlock even reciprocate his feelings, or is it all just a cruel game? Is Alec even ready to take that step—to risk derailing everything he's worked for—for a far-fetched chance at love?

    Meanwhile, a rogue warlock prowls the streets of New York, murdering mundanes to gather power for a mysterious spell. Only Magnus Bane has the knowledge to help the New York shadowhunters, now lead by Alec, solve the case.

    Forced to work alongside Magnus on an almost daily basis, Alec must face his feelings head on.

    Summary

    Nie zdawał sobie sprawy z tego, co robił. Magnus zawsze mówił, że przeszłość nie ma znaczenia i przez dłuższy czas Alec uważał tak samo. Jednak Camille zaczęła mu opowiadać o życiu Magnusa, którego on nie znał. Mimo wszystkich zapewnień, że przeszłość nie ma znaczenia, Alec chciał wiedzieć. Wciąż łapał się na tym, że gdy nasuwało mu się jakieś pytanie, które chciałby zadać czarownikowi, przychodził do Camille, ponieważ ona zawsze mu odpowiadała, natomiast Magnus zbywał go lub zmieniał temat. Kochał go. Jednak wszystkie te tajemnice zaczęły ich od siebie oddalać.

    Summary

    Magnus always said that the past didn't matter, and for a long time Alec felt the same. However, Camille told him about Magnus life, many aspects of which he had not known. Despite all assurances that the past didn't matter, Alec wanted to know. When Alec asked Magnus about his past Magnus often tried to avoid an answer or change the subject. Camille instead answered him without hesitation. He loved Magnus. He really did. But he had not realised that soon, it had become a habit to just talk to Camille about Magnus rather than Magnus himself. He’d even stopped visiting Magnus unknowingly, keeping his visits to Camille like a dirty secret. However, all these secrets began to distance them from each other.

    Summary

    He inches closer, his tattered, ugly shoes now hanging almost halfway off the edge. The water below is completely black and lifeless, just how he feels, just how he’s about to be as well. It looks threatening yet welcoming, and Alec feels his heart shatter as he starts to let himself fall, let the wind take over and pull him down, his already blurry eyes closing just as the last piece of his mind breaks away, just as his entire body finally goes on auto-lock and it feels like he’s turned to stone, a heartless, mindless, completely unimportant statue.
    Maybe if he’d been paying more attention to his surroundings, he would’ve seen the one, the only other car in the night drive up next to his. Maybe if he’d been paying more attention, he would’ve heard the slam of a car door ten feet away, feet slamming into the ground and a man yelling out.

    “Maryse, it’s Jace.”

    “Jace, where in the realm of the angel are you and Alec?” She seethed.

    “Listen- we messed up. Last night--”

    “What are you talking about?”

    “The bachelor party, the whole night-- things got out of control.” He paused, letting out a shaky breath. “We lost Alec.”

    “What?”

    “We can’t find Alec.” He reiterated, his tone saturated in his own disbelief.

    “What are you saying? He’s getting married in five hours.” Through the phone, Jace could hear her high heels pacing around the stone institute floors.

    “Ughh… that’s not going to happen.”
