Best Book Award


The 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 pop star. 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.

Available in paperback in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Dubai and most English speaking countries plus online bookstores. Ebook currently only available on Kindle – more soon.

    A truly enthralling read combining fantasy, thriller and romance – the characters really come alive. Look forward to discovering more of Kate Johnson’s books and have already downloaded a few on Kindle.

    I am a huge fan of time travel and dystopian fiction. This one of a kind novel combined both genres into a very exciting story. Kate Johnson has rivaled Harry Turtledove -Alternative history legend.

    When Eve first arrives in an alternative London, she thinks she is on an episode of MTV’s “Punked”. The local army militia thinks she is a spy and quickly put her under arrest. That is when she meet Harker, the officer in command.

    Harker does spend most of the early part of the book saying “The what?” regardless of that, Harker is sexy enough to make you swoon.

    The UnTied Kingdom is an adventure you won’t forget in a hurry. It is teaming with wit and sass but does not shy away from the horrors of a homeland invasion. I can recommend this to anyone who is looking for something a bit different, you won’t be disappointed. I am definitely putting this on my list of books to read again.
