Thumbs Up & Beautifully WrittenI have read this book "The Untold Story of A Nigerian Royal Family". The story unfolds gracefully and will keep you eagerly turning pages. The book weaves together many fascinating stories and events of the reign of an African King Esezi I until his assassination in 1779.
This book also tells on the story of a Princess who fell in love with her fathers Slave. It is a story about courageous love and the bonds that never break. In this book, it was the Princess brother Chief Ojegba who battle for the freedom of his own people taken into Slavery by a rival Chief Olomu and his Slave riders.
This is a book fit to be made into movies about the sage of the Okpe Royal Family. The author Prince [Dr] Joseph O. Asagba has written a fascinating book about the Okpe - Urhobo Royal Family. This book is a great read and highly recommended. [by Sam Ekpeti]
Incredible Work of HistoryI can't praise this book enough. The story of the Okpe royal families through The Untold Story of a Nigerian Royal Family is unbelievable and compelling. Dr. Asagba, the author of this book has written a brilliant stories of his family bloodline that have never been told before. This is history that reads like fiction, told with power and passion. This is a book you must own and read. Very amazing and wonderful stories in the book.
Quite InterestingThe Untold Story of a Nigerian Royal Family is the most detailed and engaging book I have read. The sage itself is amazing and fascinating story of the reign of Esezi I in the late 1700s was written in a very fluid narrative style to bring out his brutal reign as king and the civil wars that follows in this great Nigerian Kingdom of Okpe. No history has been more engrossing or entertaining as the history of the Okpe people. This book is highly recommended.
