This is a great middle school or read to me book with tons of adventure and lots of characters to associate with. I loved the story line and I think for the most part the author handled the different worlds that Neiko was a part of pretty well. I did find myself lost a few times but the fact that the author used different names for the two worlds helped a lot. However, that also led to some confusion trying to keep the characters identified. For a middle school book, there seemed to be a lot of 'main' characters and it was hard sometimes to keep them straight. I loved the pictures and the illustrator should get extra kudos for the portrayal of the author's vision. I read the descriptions of the characters and saw the pictures were so exact they almost leapt out of the pages. Great job. My recommendation on this book would be to cut down a bit on the host of main characters. If I, as an adult, got confused, I can't imagine how a 12 or 15 year old would be able to keep track of who was whom. I did love the story line and once I stopped trying to memorize the names of those not specifically interacting with Neiko I got along better with the cast. The story line was easy to follow, however and the adventure definitely worth the read. I look forward to reading other books by this author and in this series.

Do you remember as a child playing hide and seek with a group of friends? It's a fun and exciting game with simple, easy to follow rules. It is this simplistic form of entertainment that the younger generation craves. It is this style of entertainment that new author A.K. Taylor has captured in her debut novel "Neiko's Five Land Adventure." 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.

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

Are you into fantasy? Then this book is a must for you! Amanda, a shy young teenage girl, is living her secret life as Neiko in Hawote, a hidden dangerous world. Neiko is responsible to protect Hawote and as a warrior she goes through risky fights and is confronted with various enemies until she learns ... I will not give more details! A.K. Taylor did something extraordinary with writing this story: Neiko's Five Land Adventure is a book which can encourage teenage girls to take their lives in their hands. This book can help them to try things which they usually wouldn't dare to think about. Neiko is a model of courage and power and she can easily be a model for all shy young teenage girls. Accurate and precise descriptions of the main characters, the different lands, the landscapes, the tribes etc. and lively dialogues make it to a pleasure to follow the author through the story. In addition the book is provided with beautiful black and white illustrations; the reader is missing nothing. This book has the power to transport you to another world!
