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

I had toys, much like the protagonist does, which I had imbued with much backstory and character. I imagined a secret life for myself (where I was the hero of course) parallel to my real life (which wasn't very exciting, although honestly not at all bad).
Now, in this present case our hero is a teenaged girl "Captain Neiko Kidd" but she's pretty much a tomboy. It's a real blast from the past, and I imagine if any of my teenaged fantasy-world scribbles had survived, they'd read quite a bit like this.
It's not great literature or even great fantasy (remember, she was only 16!). But it's not supposed to be. It's a fun fantasy that tweens and younger teens (who don't like all that "mushy stuff") will enjoy, and one that adult readers can look back on with quite a bit of Proustian remembrances.
Plenty of action, and an inspired imagination, indeed.
I rcvd a copy for review.
She is Captain Neiko Kidd, the commanding officer of the Desert Storm Falcons, an organization of woodland warriors. She is friends with most of the other Indian tribes who were on the same side. There biggest enemy was with the Crackedskulls, a band of bloodthirsty savages ruled by Raven and his son, Bloodhawk, who are half bird. What makes things worse is Bloodhawk's obsession to have Neiko as his wife. Many attempts had been made to capture her, but each one failed. Neiko is a target that is hard to defeat.
Becoming more powerful within the Desert Storm Falcons, being promoted to Admiral, Neiko was becoming almost invincible. But Raven finds a mole in the tight knit group who would gladly betray her so Raven and Bloodhawk could defeat the seven tribes and rule everything.
But to find Neiko's weakness was going to be tough, but then it was remembered that Neiko still liked to play with toys--plastic toy Egyptian pharaohs, to be more precise. She had created her own world with her toy soldiers. Being well versed in dark magic, Raven put a spell on Neiko's favorite toy, Ramses. But just like all magic, it can backfire. It does when several of Neiko's toys grow and become real, kidnapping her and taking her into her own imaginary world with their own take over agenda. What will happen to Neiko during her travels in finding salvation?
This story has many different twists and turns that will capture the reader's attention. Children who love reading fantasy will love the adventure and the world A.K. Taylor creates using powerful Egyptian Pharoahs, half bird creatures, and battles. What is most interesting is how she created a world for an ordinary teenager with Indian background to fight in, learn from, and come into her own.
A teenage girl from Loganville, Georgia is known as Amanda Hawk. In this world that is; in Qari she is known as Captain Neiko Kidd. Her and her group, the Desert Storm Falcons, battle against their archenemies - the Crackedskulls. The feud runs deep as these two tribes battle. Raven and Bloodhawk, the leaders of the Crackskulls, are determined to eliminate Neiko. With her out of the way they can rule the remaining lands.
What do they have in store for Neiko? How will she defeat their evil plan? Who can she trust?
From the first word, A.K. Taylor delivers a fresh, vibrant tale of two different worlds. With each passing page, it is virtually impossible not to be absorbed into Neiko's trials and adventures. The more you read the further you get sucked into the Five Land.
The strength of "Neiko's Five Land Adventure" lies in the simplistic approach and ease of storytelling. The characters are endearing, easy to connect with, and can be related too. This novel is for those who enjoy the smooth pace, action and thrills of a fantasy adventure.
Author A.K. Taylor's debut novel is sure to capture the imagination of young readers. This is an ideal book to ignite a pre-teen or teenager's passion for reading.
