As she sets to investigate a crime as an eighteen-year-old woman, her family continues to be torn apart by the aftermath of events three years prior. With help from Gwynhyfar “Grace” Lanchester, an older magical woman who has been her guardian since birth, Cordelia attempts to discover both the truth and her own legacy in time to save her family name.
Determined to prove her worth, Cordelia joins the Shadowhunter Academy.

The fate of the world lies in her hands—if she can live up to her great potential.

But they thrive on chaos, so they decide to draw back their new laws, and that can only mean one thing—war. When the Clave sends a distress call to Malcolm Fade, it’s up to him and his band of misfits to do some quick thinking…and save not just London but the whole world!
About Chain of Gold Book
Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons. When her father is accused of a terrible crime, she and her brother travel to London to prevent the family’s ruin. Cordelia’s mother wants to marry her off, but Cordelia is determined to be a hero rather than a bride. Soon Cordelia encounters childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale and is drawn into their world of glittering ballrooms, secret assignations, and supernatural salons, where vampires and warlocks mingle with mermaids and magicians. She must hide her secret love for James, who is sworn to marry someone else.
But Cordelia’s new life is blown apart when a shocking series of demon attacks devastate London. These monsters are nothing like those Shadowhunters have fought before—these demons walk in daylight, strike down the unwary with incurable poison, and seem impossible to kill. London is immediately quarantined. Trapped in the city, Cordelia’s friends discover that a dark legacy has gifted them with incredible powers—and forced a difficult choice that will reveal the true cruel price of being a hero.
