Reader's comments
"This book is really really good, and I have not been able to put it down, even though it is 455 pages long. It is an amazing story about good and evil, and about love..." 

"Där drömmar blir till is the very young Emma Andersson's debut novel and I must say that I am very impressed."

"Magical and full of fantasy." 

"The story hides dark secrets, but it also proves that everything is possible if you do it right. In your dream you can be anything, but if you are dying the nightmare finds you. No one survives death; only in reality it can be defeated."

"This is one of the best fantasy books I have ever read!"

"[Emma Andersson] is one of few who has succeded with getting a book published at such a young age and it is definitely an amazing debut. I am not only astonished by the exiting story but by her detailed descriptive language."

"This young adult novel is well worth reading. Maybe even more than once. And I look forward to the sequel that the author has promised is on its way."

"When I first found this book in the book shop I was entranced by the cover and its appealing catch phrase 'Truly poor are only the one who has never dreamt.' I was blown away and completely lost myself in the world of dreams while reading Där drömmar blir till, and you who have not read this pearl has an amazing dream ahead of you. Emma Andersson is as far as I know, a rather unknown writer. But it wouldn't surprise me if she one day in the future will be among our most well known." 

"... a debut that impresses, especially through its bold examination of the boundary country of the mind as the path to the land of fairytales." 

"If you love fantasy, mysterious parallel worlds and magical abilities, this is an amazing story and also a thrilling debut."
