“Källner and Johnsson once again deliver high-quality children’s literature that takes us on an immersive space adventure. […] This is truly an incredibly well-crafted series that is loved as much by me as my ten-year-old son. Children of the Phoenix evoke true reading pleasure! When I told my son that the fourth book had arrived, he exclaimed, “Yes! Finally!” with a big smile and he has not been disappointed. In previous parts, Källner has made a perfect balance with how quickly he expands the number of characters and worlds. In this book, we also get to know the different cultures of the galaxy further. […] But it’s not only an astonishing space adventure, the series also contains deeper elements. […] It’s norm-creative without ever feeling pasted or exaggerated. The series is also throughout full of fantastic illustrations in color that give a true “WOW!”-feeling. You only need to lift up one of the books and look at the covers to get a craving for reading. That feeling lasts. Because Johnson’s illustrations is WOW and creates a fantastic whole with Källner’s text.

“The colorful and detailed illustrations are dizzying and enhance the reading […] The characters are multidimensional and clear. […] It is well written, interesting and a very exciting read. Rating 5/5”

”Haven’t you read this series yet? You are lucky to have it in front of you, I’m jealous … How many exciting things is even possible to fit into one book? Oskar Källner does it masterfully. We are thrown from one event to another, the next more dramatic than the previous, but at the same time everything is connected and there are no loose threads. […] Karl Johnsson’s illustrations are detailed and perfect for this. Everything feels so alive when experiencing the story through Johnsson’s illustrations. They also make you feel that you get to know the characters and what they go through even better.
