This novel is surely going to be interesting for intermediate and senior school students.
The story is about a girl who lives in two worlds, the world of average people and the world of native inhabitants of the American continent, Indians. Amanda (the name of the main protagonist) cannot escape from her childish habits; she's got a whole set of dolls, and she still plays them. In the world of average people she is a normal eighteen-year-old girl who is up to attend college, but in the world of Indians she is the brave warrior Neiko Kidd by name. These two worlds are very close to each other, they snarl together, or maybe they exist one in the other. But one day a third world wedges into this huddle, a world which Neiko imagined for playing with her toys. The characters of her games come to life and steal her into this imaginary world. This novel is surely going to be interesting for intermediate and senior school students who like stories about super heroes and Harry Potter. The style is easy and nice to read and understand. I would gladly recommend this piece to the above mentioned age group... Book received from author. --Vlad K. Once, UK author of One of Us, Chance Confession, and The Sigma Passion
A spine-chilling adventure-packed tale that will have you turning page after page. Once you open this book, there is no turning back. --Katie Holzman, author of Seven Ways to Kill Yourself with Shampoo
This book took me back to my childhood. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next in the story. A wonderful, action packed story that tweens and younger teens would enjoy. --Tom Clementson, Kindle Book Review Reviewer
Neiko's Five Land Adventure: Neiko Adventure Saga Book One by A.K.Taylor has everything that young fantasy reader would want in a fantasy novel. The author dishes out everything from bird-like people to velociraptors and that is not even twentieth of what readers can look forward to finding along with Neiko Kidd in the Five Lands. I cannot help but chuckle when I think back to all of the names that Neiko has called Ramses the Dark Pharaoh, the main antagonist. Like the one and only Dr.Frankenstein, the author is nothing short of ingeniously inventive when it comes to her own fictional monstrosities. The author's open-and-shut originality is certainly what will lure readers to invest in her series. I call this novel fantasy at its boldest.
Once Neiko and Quickstrike made it into the Five Lands, this book just got better and better... --Benjamin Ookami from Reader's Favorite

"A fantastical twist to the childhood game of Cowboys and Indians and a wonderful coming of age story."

"Neiko's Five Land Adventure is a gripping young adult fantasy tale. You get an exceptional feel for the protagonist, Neiko, as you travel through the rich worlds between reality and imaginary (well not really imaginary as Neiko soon finds out!) alongside her and her cohorts (I particularly liked Quickstrike)"
