One of my favorite lines in the book comes from a sassy girl warrior faery, Liranna, who has a dim view of humans and their math abilities:
“For the swap, faeries only seek out the humans who have access to the highest mathematickal knowledge. The average human is impossibly stupid at mathematicks. It’s a wonder that you advance your knowledge at all. And yet, in some miracle known only to the elements, a few unusual humans make great strides in knowledge between each swap.” She slid him a haughty look. “Perhaps they are part faery.”
Susan Kaye Quinn is the author of the bestselling Mindjack Trilogy, which is young adult science fiction, along with several other speculative fiction titles for adults. Faery Swap is her first published children’s story, even though she started out writing middle grade before anything else. She always has more speculative fiction fun in the works.
