Reviewed by Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite

Twisted by Kennedy Obohwemu, the story of Mofe Esiri, follows the brilliant and handsome author as he falls prey to the seductions of Nollywood actress Daisy Igho. Mofe’s life had been charmed, he had money, success, fame, and the love of his childhood sweetheart, but because of some choices that he makes, he finds himself in the impossible situation of negotiating with terrorists to protect all that he loves. Further adventures with time travel, the mafia and dealing with a cold-blooded murderer twist Mofe’s life into something he barely recognizes, and can barely negotiate. You’ll find yourself wondering what could possibly happen next to this poor man, but also realize that all of his misadventures are due to choices he made himself.

Twisted is certainly a fast-paced and exciting read. The twists and turns that Mofe Esiri is forced to take while negotiating his life after making less than good decisions will keep you engrossed, wondering where his life will end up. This intense novel includes story lines of lust, betrayal, sadness, and finally, murder, and some parts kept me on the edge of my seat. I appreciated learning about Nigerian culture and everyday life through this entertaining book as well. Somewhat fantastical in some scenes, especially those in which Mofe time travels, I think this book would especially appeal to those who love an adventuresome quick read. Author Kennedy Obohwemu certainly has an inventive mind, and one that I hope he will continue to use to write entertaining fiction like Twisted.

Midwest Book Review

"It holds all the trappings of mystery, suspense and romance without the usually-Western settings and sentiments that permeate these genres, and it offers both believable and absorbing protagonists with a locale steeped in Africa's rich social and political milieu. The result will especially please literary-minded readers who enjoy all three genres, but who seek more depth than the usual thriller affords..."

Felicia Lynn Timoteo

“The book has nice twists and turns. It held me captive with its suspense and romance. I also enjoyed the different look into Africa from what you normally hear. I picture Africa as a dry and dusty place with lots of wild animals. This book tells of a more civilized society. I recommend it. My compliments to the author.”

Twisted is a story of actual events with terrorist plots and romance. With a man unwittingly caught in a net of intrigue and some shocking revelations about his past- this is not your usual thriller story.The protagonist author Mofe Esiris is just starting his journey with these revelations: the trip includes time travel, family ties, a clever killer with mafia and international ties. Sometimes it feels like he is trapped in this tangle web he wove through his investigations and actions! I throughly enjoyed this book a fascinating fast paced read with plenty of action.


Enjoyed the book from page 1 till the last! You neva know what to expect in the next page or chapter till the end.Twisted shows how love always wins at last.

Five star rating!


Carefully written..


I'm not a big fan of novels but I enjoyed this so much. Dear author, I hope to read more of your novels soon.


Well written! One thing I really appreciated was that it wasn't like every other love story. Not the usual 'bad guy gets caught and killed at the end' kind of story.

I've got 2 questions for the author; What were you thinking when you wrote this book? When should we expect your next work?


Infidelity is a serious challenge. It has destroyed many marriages and lives. Mofe suffered the consequences, learnt his lessons and returned back to his love.

5 stars from me.
