There are dark times rising in the Shadow World. Warlocks are considered an enemy number one and every shadowhunter has strict orders from the Clave to kill them on sight.
What will happen when Magnus Bane tries to deal with this horrible situation? Will he be able to protect himself and the people he loves?
Every five years the year of the dragon sees one girl sacrificed to the beast as is the law of the land. This year, however, nothing goes as planned, and two unlikely beings destined to be enemies, become allies, and maybe (definitely) find love in the strangest of ways.

[“There’s this thing that you do,” says Alec, exasperated. “This power you have that makes you look indestructible.”
“You know that’s not true,” says Magnus, his breath warm against Alec’s chin.

1992, New York, a city hanging on to politically-tinged Cold War feelings. Alec Lightwood is a Corporate - a superhero for hire - jostling with a secret identity, holding on to a sense of a normal life, and the fact vigilantes keep turning up murdered in the gutters with no explanation.
Things can only get worse when Magnus - an investigative journalist - starts peeling back Alec’s carefully-crafted mask … and then there’s the mysterious vigilante with the power to move things with his mind who keeps turning up wherever Alec goes - Alec just can’t cut a break.
A neonoir slow-burn superheroes AU about identity, truth, and falling in love without knowing someone’s real name (ft. everyone has superpowers because I couldn’t help myself).
