Chapter 36

The Shadow of Bones

  • Katherine is in shock from the stab wound, but she's pretty sure she's fine. "It was just a scratch," (36.6), she says. Only a flesh wound!
  • Then she dies. Wow, that's sad.
  • Valentine implores Hester and Tom to fly away and save themselves, so they do.
  • As they fly away, London explodes in a huge ball of fire and blazing gas.
