I liked the world, and the sprinkle of norse words here and there did make it cool. And it does show the difference between places in this world.
First, the Chosen are those with a mark of a Healer, a warrior or a Seer and they learn their trade so to say at a school. Kael is a warrior and now a feared pirate, warlord, but he does it in service of his Emperor. So he is a good guy. Sure he says some wrong things when he first meets poor Ishtear, but he could not even imagine what she has been through.
Ishtaer our heroine, wow, some of the more damaged heroines of late. I did like how it was portrayed, she was broken, she was timid, after years of abuse you do not just snap out of it. Not if you are that broken. So it takes time. Sure she learns the ways fast after it, but hey if you got it you got it. I guess that is how the Chosen work. So I looked through my fingers with that.
The romance comes late. A slow friendship, getting to know each other, living their own lives. The romance is not the focus, no, she needs to find herself. He needs to learn that everyone can't be protected.
Magic, fighting, a cool world, I do feel that Kate Johnson needs to write about other people in this world. She is on to something here.
In Impossible things, we are introduced to Kael and a fantasy world full of Pirates and Warlords.
The mysterious Ishtaer appears and Kael is quickly intrigued. It is a very slow burn between them both; as they take their time bonding and ultimately healing each other emotionally.
Ishtaer is a wonderfully strong character. She is blinded, abused and psychically broken- but she is a fighter and doesn't give up easily.
This story has it all: Romance, Mystery, Action, Magic and prophecy. Even if you are not a fan of High Fantasy- reading Kate Johnson's Impossible things will make you one.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it. This unique fantasy book is fast paced and full of action. Once you pick it up it is hard to put down.
Kael is a bloodthirsty warlord/pirate, but right from the start he doesn't act it.
Ishtaer is a slave, and utterly powerless. But perhaps not.
This is a stunning fantasy with Kael's people being Norse-ish, and the ruling class being Roman-ish in structure. There is lots of detail in the world-building and supporting characters, and the plot had some utterly unexpected twists - I was in tears at one point.
I am twenty years past the book boyfriend stage, but Ms Johnson writes heroes I can happily dream about. Kael is a very complicated fella with very hidden depths.
A wonderful, well written story.
Ishtaer is a complete mystery, she is a blind slave who has been treated very badly by her mistress, and she has no memory of any time before her enslavement. Kael Vapensigsson however, is one of the elite Chosen, a warlord whose strength comes from the gods themselves. But despite this, he is plagued by a prophecy that could destroy everything he loves. But when Kael discovers the marks of the Chosen on Ishtaer’s body, their lives are about to become entangled and endangered…
I loved the storyline, I was very intrigued by the idea of the Chosen, warlords and slaves all mixed into one story. I wasn’t sure whether this would be a difficult story to understand but I needn’t have worried as I soon became caught up in what was going on and I was always eager to read on and reach the next part. I really liked the detail included and it helped me picture every scene as I was reading.
I found the characters really interesting, Kate has written them in such a way that I always wanted to know more about them. I really liked Ishtaer, I really felt for her after all she had suffered and been through and I was particularly gripped to her journey throughout the book.
With a mix of action, fantasy and romance, I found I enjoyed every part of it. Impossible Things is a really fresh and exciting story, really unlike anything I’ve read before, and I’m looking forward to hearing more from Kate!
