Clary has always been silent. After witnessing the brutal murder of her family at age ten, Clary became mute by choice. She hasn't spoken a word since it happened and nothing anyone would say could bring her out of her vow of silence.
Jace has always been a player. To say he has commitment issues is a huge understatement. He uses one girl and throws her away then next day to go after the next one.
But what do the Fates have in store for the two when they meet? Could they help each other in ways no one ever has before? Because maybe--just maybe--they'll come to realize that the state of mind they've found to be most comfortable isn't so comfortable after all.
