Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral Mrs Alice Drablow, the sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. The house stands at the end of a causeway, wreathed in fog and mystery, but it is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black - and her terrible purpose.

City of Ashes: Book 2
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadow hunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Down worlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadow hunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadow hunting world isn't ready to let her go—especially her handsome, infuriating, new found brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadow hunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil—and also her father.
