“Källner excels with a fantastic story that made our jaws drop towards the end of this book. It is clear that Källner has an extremely well-thought-out plan with the series. Small details that were introduced in previous books now fall into place, but just as much is still open and we wonder how everything should go, how everything is connected. We want to read the next part NOW! The series is consistently full of fantastic color illustrations, and it is enough to look at the covers to get a craving for reading. That desire to read stays because Johnsson’s illustrations and Källner’s text creates a fantastic whole. I also appreciate that Källner has included poetry and songs in the book that deepen and broaden the different cultures that the different characters come from. A favorite series with us!

“Finally the next part in the exciting series Children of the Phoenix. It is full speed from the first to the last chapter. The book ends way too fast. Tension at a really high level. All incredible creatures come to life through the amazing illustrations.”
