This is the story of Simon’s arrival at the Shadowhunter Academy. It continues several months after City of Heavenly Fire. Simon knows that half of his memories are not his own, but were planted in his head, and he has glimpses of memories that tell him of his friendship with Clary, relationship with Isabelle, and his time as a vampire. Most importantly, he remembers his mother’s reaction to finding out his being a vampire, and he realizes the hurt in his friends that he cannot remember them. Consequently, he feels the need to leave.

Ein Kampf zwischen Himmel und Hölle
Clara geht nach Stanford. Zunächst unentschlossen, was sie studieren soll, entscheidet sie sich nach einem Zwischenfall, bei dem sie ihren Engelsglanz benutzt hat, Medizin zu studieren. Neben ihren scheiternden Versuchen über Tucker hinwegzukommen und sich vielleicht einer Beziehung mit Christian zu öffnen, versucht Clara Angela bei ihrer Aufgabe zu helfen. Gleichzeitig hat sie aber mit ihrer eigenen, neuen Vision zu kämpfen, die ihr zunehmend Angst bereitet. Ob Christians Anwesenheit in der Vision ein Trost ist, oder nicht, steht in Frage.
