Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books; Reprint edition (2030, Dec 31st).
"When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she never expects to witness a murder. Much less one committed by three teenagers covered in odd markings and brandishing strange weapons-- and a victim that vanishes completely. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and there is nothing-- not even a smear of blood-- to show that someone died. This is Clary's first encounter with the Shadowhunters, highly trained warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons-- and keeping rogue werewolves and vampires in line. It's also her first meeting with the gorgeous Shadowhunter Jace. Within twenty-four hours, Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance: Her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why are demons hunting an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know" -- from publisher's web site.

Calling Anna and Bennett's romance long distance is an understatement: she's from 1995 Chicago and he's a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds. It's not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they'll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?Told from Bennett's point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what's next for Time Between Us's Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
