"You are a Lightwood, and you always will be. I never gave up hope that you would come back, that we would see you again. You would not imagine the lengths I went through to try and find you, how many times we tried to track you." He smiled at me as he held my hand tightly in his.
"That's just it." I shook my head as I pulled my hand away from his grasp, standing up from my bed. "I didn't want to be found."
From a young age Cecile Lightwood knew that she didn't fit into the mold her parents had set for her. She didn't want to be a Shadowhunter. To be held responsible for upholding the Lightwood name.
She knew she wasn't cut out to be a Shadowhunter. So when a mission goes wrong and Cecile finds herself given the chance to create a new life for herself, she takes it.
With her family thinking she's dead, Cecile finds herself being taken in my Luke, Jocelyn, and Dot. All of them promising to help her live the life she's always wanted for herself. With their help she was able to hide herself away from the Shadow World, to live the mundane life she wanted for herself. But following peace comes trouble.
Now she is nineteen and is finding herself thrown back into the life that she had worked so hard at escaping. Facing the family that she abandoned for a new one. How will Cecile be able to handle the struggles of being thrusted back into a world that she had worked so hard at leaving in the past? What secrets will she uncover? And who will really be by her side when all else fails?
