This book is the first in a new series by the author of The Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices, and Shadowhunters Academy series.

In this new series, angels, fairies, demons, and humans all live together on earth– but not always peacefully. Emma is what is known as a Shadowhunter; she is half-angel, half-human and an elite warrior. Emma and her partner Julian are the guardians of Los Angeles, where vampires and murderous fairies prey on humans. Shadowhunters try to keep the peace, but fight when needed. Recently, though, both human and fairy bodies have been showing up brutally murdered. The Shadowhunters know they must join forces with the fairies to catch whatever darker force is at work in the world.

Into this very dangerous war is thrown Kit, a mortal teenage boy who can see the creatures of the underworld that most humans cannot. The Shadowhunters want to use Kit as a weapon and a spy, but Kit’s moral father has his own plans that he plans to trap Kit in.

Read this amazing dark urban fantasy book to find out who is killing humans and magical creatures, and who is destined to save the city.
