    Summary

    Alec Lightwood was pretty content with his life, he had a successful job leading a law firm with one of his best friends, a great relationship with his siblings and a perfectly acceptable apartment. He really wasn’t looking for anything more but when he finds a little girl waiting all alone in a coffee shop his life will change irremediably and maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all.

    Or,

    The one in which Alec makes up with his mother, gets a boyfriend and adopts a little girl. Just not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Rapture ― a splendid city at the bottom of the ocean, isolated and free of the Clave’s restraints, where innovation is put above petty rules.

    In 1960, Rapture has long since fallen. Its former glory has been reduced to a haunting hellscape where twisted creatures reign, and child-accompanied demons roam the halls. For Alec, it poses a unique challenge ― especially when Jace goes missing, once they arrive in the city on a Clave-mandated mission. In the midst of it all is Magnus, on a mission of his own. Teaming up with Alec comes naturally, and with the help of a sympathetic stranger, they start making their way through the city and the horrors it has to offer. But -- while their friends on the surface work hard on mounting a rescue -- something much more troubling soon becomes clear: getting into Rapture is nowhere near as hard as getting back out.

    Summary

    “You’re quiet,” he said.

    “I’m lonely,” Isabelle replied, and for a moment, it felt more honest than any words she’d spoken since she was seven years old.

    Summary

    Alec had never dreamt he'd be a father by the age of 25, let alone the father of a Warlock. He's sure he can handle it alone, though. He doesn't need anyone and neither do his kids.

    (Or: Alec takes Max to Warlock School and finds himself falling fast for his teacher).
