“Clarissa.” Amatis looked at her speculatively. “We’re expecting an attack by Valentine at
any moment. Almost every Shadowhunter in Idris is here in the city, inside the wards.
Staying in Alicante is the safest thing for you.”
Clary sat frozen. Rationally, Amatis’s words made

Chapter 5: A Problem With Memory
So I have been shouting about this since the beginning of the book, but every Shadowhunter is here, and oh my god fuck the mundanes apparently! Because no one is protecting the mundanes. They are just left to the mercies of rogue Downworlders and Demons. Seriously. they are so inept and basically Keystone Kops. What the fuck are they are even good for?
Oh my god, this is solid proof of what I have been saying since the jump. The Clave is just as idiotic and inept as Valentine himself. Honestly, I have no idea why they are not working with each other. They are just as racist and horrible as Valentine is. You only have to see what the Inquisitor did to Simon to see that.
You are probably wondering why I’m calling everyone stupid. They are the humanity’s (mundanes) defenders, their first defense when it comes to rogue Downworlders and Demons. Yet, they just all pulled up and hurried to Idris, leaving no one to defend humanity. It wasn’t even needed, all they had to do was call their equivalent of a Mangement meeting and guess what? The Shadowhunters will follow those orders just as much as if they were in Idris.
Again, must I point out that average Shadowhunters are basically slave soldiers? They had no choice but to follow orders (and yes that is fucked up). So again, all of this is a plot device and a ridiculously moronic one at that.
