FROM PAGE TO SCREEN → Chapter 4 - Ravener
“That Ravener demon got you in the back of the neck. It was half-dead so it wasn’t much of a sting, but we have to get you to the Institute. Hold still.”
“That thing—the monster—it talked.” Clary was shuddering uncontrollably.
“You’ve heard a demon talk before.” Jace’s hands were gentle as he slipped the strip of knotted cloth under her neck, and tied it. It was smeared with something waxy, like the gardener’s salve her mother used to keep her paint- and turpentine-abused hands soft.
“The demon in Pandemonium—it looked like a person.”
“It was an Eidolon demon. A shape-changer. Raveners look like they look. Not very attractive, but they’re too stupid to care.”
“It said it was going to eat me.”
“But it didn’t. You killed it.” Jace finished the knot and sat back.
