-Readers' Favorite Review by K.C. Finn    Review Rating    5 Stars!
I have read many young adult science fiction novels which base their themes and atmospheres on elements and environments, and Desert Dwellers Born By Fire is truly unique in its approach to this technique. The barren heat of the desert is prevalent from the start in the novel's atmospheric writing, and as the scenes shift whilst the young heroes go on questing, a rich and vivid world is created. Khalid, Lahcen and Qeriya are genuinely interesting protagonists with distinct voices and personalities, active participants in their own destinies who inspire readers to keep turning pages and see what they discover. Sarah Bergstrom unveils incredible powers, well crafted creatures and other races with effortless style, weaving a plot full of mysteries that are not quite solved by the end. Roll on book two.    
 
-Readers' Favorite Review by Romuald Dzemo    Review Rating    5 Stars!
Sarah Bergstrom's Desert Dwellers Born By Fire is peppered with mysterious elements that create a dreamworld which will be very enchanting for young readers. The images, such as the house that sits on the edge and the computer in the water, allow both characters and readers to have a glimpse of another world and these are among the powerful elements that create a strong sense of mystery. Bergstrom has a very fertile imagination, capable of creating characters and creatures that readers will readily sympathize with. The author's prose flows with ease and young readers will discover that her words create an enchanting world they can easily escape to. The characters are not only compelling, but will remind readers of those strong human values that bind a family together. I loved the characters and the compelling idea behind this story. A book I will happily recommend to young readers.  
-Readers' Favorite Review by Gisela Dixon    Review Rating    5 Stars!
Desert Dwellers Born By Fire: The First Book In The Paintbrush Saga by Sarah Bergstrom is a good read for all ages. Although teenagers and young adults would enjoy it, even adults would get a lot out of it. I particularly enjoyed the vivid and rich descriptions of the desert and all of the natural surroundings throughout the book. The characters are well drawn and I felt myself wanting to know more as the book ended. Overall, this is an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading Part II in the series.
-Readers' Favorite Review by Lit Amri    Review Rating    5 Stars!
Desert Dwellers Born By Fire: The First Book in the Paintbrush Saga by Sarah Bergstrom is a charming sci-fi fantasy with captivating world building. The story set in New Earth, a planet where humans of Old Earth made their new home. Naturally, New Earth has its own unique species, and reaume, the interesting human-like beings, are one of them. Geographically, the similarities of the planet make it easy to relate to and imagine the surroundings. On the other hand, the contrast and unique features of New Earth propel the fantastical traits of the world which keeps the story interesting.  The plot is evidently well-thought out and perfectly paced. I like the way the story of the siblings and their parents' past is told together in a parallel manner. Even though it's geared toward the YA demographic, this is a book that adult readers should not overlook. I truly enjoyed it and Bergstrom writes splendidly. This is a new series with engaging, well-fleshed out characters. The stubborn and free-spirited Qeriya is my favorite and her adrenaline-pumping race event was fun to read. I look forward to joining her and her brothers in the next book.
-Readers' Favorite Review by Melinda Hills    Review Rating    5 Stars!
Even more surprising, upon escaping the mountain hideaway of the giants, they find themselves in a rainforest that is inhabited by human-like beings that can control fire and the very volcanic forces that created the world. What they learn from their cousins gives you hints about the upcoming volumes of this series and sets the stage for additional tremendous adventures. 
From page one, you are drawn into a fabulous story involving special powers, a greedy king, and vengeful giants in Desert Dwellers Born By Fire: The First Book In The Paintbrush Saga by Sarah Bergstrom. The characters, locations and interactions are brilliantly developed and create a rich world of adventure and intrigue that captures your interest and holds it until the very last page - and certainly makes you glad that their are additional books to come to tell more of the story of Qeriya and her family. This is a tale well worth reading for older children and even adults who enjoy a strong sci-fi story.
