A fanfiction story inspired by the characters of CL Stone's Ghost Bird (and Scarab Beetle) series, set in the extended world of Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunters series. I own neither franchise, nor do I claim to. Rights belong to their respective owners.
Starting on May 15th, aka Upload Day (courtesy of the lovely ladies on the FB group).
Sang Sorenson has always been able to 'see' more than ordinary people, to perceive strange and fantastical things out of the corner of her eye that she can't begin to explain, but, as the youngest daughter in a family who see her as nothing more than a glorified servant, she's used to being invisible. She takes solace in these fleeting glimpses into a world where she's not so alone... even if it's all just inside her mind.
In the Downworld, there are whispers of a mysterious, avenging angel who runs the city with an iron fist. Nephilim from the Blackbourne Institute patrol the streets, keeping the peace and silencing anyone who dares disturbs it. Little is known about what goes on inside the gates of the Blackbourne Institute, but one thing is certain. If you catch a glimpse of a Shadowhunter stalking you in the night... run!
When Sang finds herself thrown out onto the streets at night, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to an old, abandoned building that she swears she's never noticed before. Only, it's not nearly as abandoned as it seems. Sang is about to discover that there is more to the world around her than she could have ever thought possible... and she might have finally found a place that she can call home.
