About the Author

Kate was born in 1982 and still hasn t grown up yet. She lives in England with her family and two cats who are her babies in every sense. Except, obviously, the biological one. She s been writing since her teens and is damn glad it s finally taking off since this means she won t have to go back to working airport check-in any more. Kate is single but aspirational (Prince William likes Kates, right?) and asks all potential dates to send in pictures of themselves and their Aston Martins. Visit Kate s website at www.katejohnson.co.uk or email Kate at katejohnsonauthor@googlemail.com.

I thought that Kate Johnson's Untied Kingdom was a good book but Impossible Things is even better. I started reading it last night and only stopped when my Kindle gave up - I woke up at six o'clock this morning and didn't get up until I'd finished it. This is a perfect blend of fantasy, action and romance. I hope this is the first of a series because the characters and setting are too good to be just used for one book.

What Kate Johnson does in this book is to take many of the stereotypes of fantasy literature and create a story which challenges them and gives us a much more realistic version of how it might be. The world that she creates is believable and remarkably detailed for such a short book - this is not an epic nor a saga. It is pseudo-medieval with kings and pirates.

Kael is a pirate king who has created his own image and then sends it up - he is a great character, strong when he needs to be but politically savvy and much loved. He meets Ishtear and rescues her from slavery and ill treatment. They are both supernaturally gifted but Ishtear more than her saviour. From being lower than low she has to learn to use her gifts and to find her place in this new society but the author makes sure we know how long it takes to recover from such ill-treatment and to reach the position of being able to trust again.

This is a self-contained story but I cannot believe that the author will not use this setting again because she has obviously taken a lot of time and effort to create it. The setting would have been useless, however, without the excellent characterisation and the deft touch which the author has with dialogue and with plot. The story is gripping and the people are excellent company.

This is very enjoyable if you like fantasy but even if that is not your genre I suggest giving this a try - the author has a lot to say about love, power, and oppression tied up in an excellent story.

I really liked this one. I would not call it fantasy romance, because yes there were romance but far at the end. Too many issues before that. So light romantic fantasy, something ;) Cos it sure is not epic fantasy either, not with the whole will they wont they going on.

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.

My thoughts:
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.

Kate Johnson has a way of creating a world totally different from our own but yet, still familiar. Her writing is so beautifully described - that her vivid images leap from the page. She did it with UnTied Kingdom and now she excels herself with Impossible things.

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.

I am a big fan of this author: her heroes and heroines are always a little different and these two are no different.

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.
