“I know this sounds odd, but a teacup knows it's a teacup, and a house knows it's a house. Part of this is on Dree. it's like she's forgotten who she was before. And if she doesn't know, the light can't find her.”
Christina Soontornvat, In a Dark Land

“Tell us the one about the mermaid again," said Dree. "That one's so heart-breaking, it must be real.”
Christina Soontornvat, The Changelings

“It's an interesting spell. You ask the light to go straight through a thing instead of bouncing off the sides. Took me a long time to get it right. I learned you gotta be real polite when you ask light to do anything.”
