Reviews of TERRA HEXA (Swedish 2004 edition):

Robert Andersson, in the Swedish magazine MITRANIA:
[...] "The beginning of the book consists of preparations for the expedition, and is happy-go-lucky, and perhaps not as thrilling as one would have wanted.

However, then TERRA HEXA evolves into a brilliant adventure novel which entertains those who have become blase. One almost thinks of Jules Verne." [...]

Pelle Magnusson, DAST Magazine #1/2005:
"This is said to be a fantasy novel for young people, but the fact is it works just as well to read it as a book for adults."

Lena Kjersen Edman, for Bibliotekstjanst(The Swedish Library Service):
(...) "The book's protagonists, the sisters Henna and Gala, Uncle Ingo and the brothers Mick and Rydel, have names which sound un-Swedish, and one senses that the author wants to reach an international market. It would not surprise me if he succeeds." [...]
"It [TERRA HEXA] is thoroughly thrilling, without being too scary for sensitive young readers."

Hilda Ekstedt (13 years old), for the Swedish magazine ICA-KURIREN:
(...) "The story is good and everything hangs together in a skillful way, it feels unreal in places though. But it is still a thrilling and good fantasy tale."

Tobias Andersson in the Swedish review blog Bokbloggen:
[...] "Terra Hexa never feels stagnant; things keep happening all the time and if you tend to get bored by long-winded descriptions, then this is the book for you.
