Paper Mustang Book Reviews on Neiko's Five Land Adventure

“I love this book for its portrayal of strong female characters. The book draws on some historical facts and information, so we encourage our young readers to continue learning as they engage in a real fun way of doing so. Any intrigue to entice further knowledge and understanding is a good thing. That being said, the story is original and bound to impress. The main character Neiko is transported from her home in a native American tribe, to the distant past in Ancient Egypt. Here she fights against the repressions of society at the time, and we see how she overcomes some dangerous situations. The book is exciting and packed with a vernacular that will appeal to older teens. ”

“Neiko has the potential for becoming a literary role model for young girls. The Escape From Ancient Egypt storyline is good conceptually with lots of action and we did find ourselves anxiously wanting to know how the author resolved Neiko's dilemna. Taylor also does a nice job of drawing the reader into the fictional world of ancient Egypt literally with her fantastic artwork interspersed throughout the novel. Winner of the Wisebear Bronze Medal Award and Best in YA Historical Fantasy”

IndieReader Approved Award Review on Neiko's Five Land Adventure

“I had not read the first book in this series, but it didn't take me long to feel comfortable with the story and the characters. The idea of Native American Indians running around ancient Egypt, in the time of Ramses II, was a little hard to accept, but if you're going to accept the idea of time travel, these things happen. I found the writing was exciting and captured my imagination, and the characters were sympathetic and well portrayed. I especially liked the character of Ramsses, and found his pride and belief in his own invincibility to be quite amusing. The outcome of the book was thrillingly written, and leaves one wanting more.”
