Revenge Quotes in City of Bones
How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)
Clary didn't see how killing one person could make right the death of another, but she sensed there was no point saying that. (10.254)

"A Shadowhunter who kills another of his brothers is worse than a demon and should be put down like one." (10.264)
"Put down" like an unwanted animal. Look, we get that there's a lot of anger flying around in this book, but the moral code of the Shadowhunters seems a bit too old school. Where's the wiggle room? Are there no gray areas?
