The Untied Kingdom by Kate Johnson

Luci Davin | The Bookbag

“The Untied Kingdom is an unusual combination of genres – a dystopian chicklit novel, as much a war and adventure story as a romance (not just a romance with a war setting). I quickly got caught up in the problems facing Eve and Harker and the other soldiers. The strongly drawn characterisation and lively narrative and dialogue is key to this.”

“I was impressed by the balance that Kate Johnson keeps between the different aspects of her novel. She maintains the adventure story even as a romance develops. However, it is not just an exciting romantic adventure story with a straightforward happy ending to come. Like many more literary war stories, the novel is quite critical of war, mostly using Eve’s comments as a way of expressing views.”

“This book is an adventure and a war story, a parallel universe fantasy, a believable romance, and a smart, well-written novel.”

Samantha March | Chick Lit Plus by Samantha March

“It was thrilling to think about what the world would be like if certain events in the past never happened, or if the outcomes were different. Johnson clearly has a wild imagination, and to be able to capture such an interesting take on what the world could have been takes talent.”

“I had a lot of fun reading this novel, but I will warn you to read carefully. If you skip over a paragraph, you could become confused. There is a lot going on, a lot of characters, and an intricate plot.”

“…great book and a definite recommendation.”

“There is everything you could possibly need in escaping real life in this story of love between Eve and Harker.”

“I was totally absorbed reading this story and just couldn’t put it down! If you think the paranormal genre isn’t for you I would encourage you to read ‘The Untied Kingdom’ – it’s a gentle introduction to get you out of your comfort reading zone.”

About the Book

9781906931681The portal to an alternate world was the start of all her troubles – or was it? When Eve Carpenter lands with a splash in the Thames, it’s not the London or England she’s used to. No one has a telephone or knows what a computer is. England’s a third world country and Princess Di is still alive. But worst of all, everyone thinks Eve’s a spy. Including Major Harker who has his own problems. His sworn enemy is looking for a promotion. The general wants him to undertake some ridiculous mission to capture a computer, which Harker vaguely envisions running wild somewhere in Yorkshire. Turns out the best person to help him is Eve. She claims to be a popstar. Harker doesn’t know what a popstar is, although he suspects it’s a fancy foreign word for ‘spy’. Eve knows all about computers, and electricity. Eve is dangerous. There’s every possibility she’s mad. And Harker is falling in love with her.
