This is a paranormal romance, a genre I have never tried before.
The Untied Kingdom starts with Eve, a former pop queen who is involved in a paragliding accident, while filming a television programme and ended up crashing into the Thames. However after the accident, Eve found herself in an alternative England, where a Civil War was in progress. An England where people were poor, there was food rationing, a third world country. Eve was rescued from The Thames by Harker, an army major, fighting in the Civil War.
As I orginially said, this was my first paranormal romance read and I am unsure that this is a genre I will actively be choosing to read. However, putting that aside, I thought the book was well written, Kate Johnson had a great writing style, which kept you wanting to read more. I enjoyed reading how England could be in another world, a country affected by a Civil War and with a lack of technology. I thought Johnson had really thought about this alternative England and her vision of how life would be was very realistic and scary to think of how life would be if real. There were great battle scenes throughout the book. I thought that Johnson had a great and orginal storyline.
I would recommend this book to other readers, those who enjoy a good romance but also have a liking for paranormal storylines.
Thank you to Choclit Publishers for sending me this book to review.
