"I remember that I was so confused when I learned that Columbus didn't "discover" North America. I was like, "Why do we get a holiday for this man?""

Code of Silence

These are some tips on how you can keep the good in you become a…

The book takes place in the same Shadowhunter world as the Mortal Instruments series except a couple centuries in…
