When hope is all you have, survival is all you can fight for …


A crew of five young adventurers are toughing it out together, sailing around the world on a gruelling charity challenge. They are used to being pushed to the limit, but nothing could have prepared them for being kidnapped. When they are taken hostage by a notorious warlord and his band of child soldiers, the trip of a lifetime turns into a one-way journey into the heart of the African jungle.

From the winner of the Lancashire Book Award 2013

"TAKEN is a tale of human strength and courage in the face of adversity. Ever since my first visit I’ve wanted to tell a story about the old, broken Africa and the new, emerging Africa – the one embodied by Nelson Mandela. TAKEN is a story of courage, love and forgiveness. It’s about understanding your enemy because sometimes your enemy may have a story too."
