The year is 1844.
Slavery is now illegal in virtually every country involved in the West African slave trade. But the demand for slave labor by colonialists in the West Indies, the Americas and the Caribbean is pushing the trafficking in human beings to new heights.
ENSLAVED is a love story entwined in an exciting, historically accurate, action-adventure novel. A warrior from a fierce tribe in the African interior unites with a mysterious Ashanti Princess, the daughter of a powerful African Chieftain. Thrown together on a Portuguese slave ship bound for Cuba, the pair discover that everything that could go wrong, does go wrong.

I found it very hard to put this book down once I started reading, there were times when I was forced to take a break from it to study for my finals. As a native of West Africa, I found this book very adventurous and interesting. I thought it was well written and easy reading. I absolutely enjoyed reading it and look forward to more books from this author. I also bought a copy for my father who is a lover of history.
