Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: question...

It's sooo true that Jace is a complete and total ASS, but in his own way he's kinda nice to. He only treats Clary the way he does because he loves her. It's true that he's mean to Simon and Alec but i think that's just how he acts towards people he likes. altough thats a strange way to show it. and i think he is really funny. So i have to say that i love Jace. :smileyhappy:

Re: question...

two other shadowhunters, and they're Jace's "brother and sister"  though not by blood.

Re: question...

 ok.  Brief history on Shadowhunters.  The Angel (whos name I forgot, he's usually just referred to as the angel) mixed his own blood in this cup.  Man drank from the cup and Shadowhunters were born.  They're also called the Seraphim (sp?) which ironically enough is a type of angel.  Since they are half angels they are guarded to keep the earth safe from demons who infest the universe.  Or rather parallel dimensions. They are also in charge of keeping Downworlders(half demons-half humans) in line.  Downworlders include: vampires, werewolves, warlocks, faeries, etc.  

 

Kind of make sense?  I'm horrible at explaining things.  If you read it you'll get it though.  Lol.
