Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Doorknob Society And The Impossible Engineers - MJ Fletcher, Book Reviews (198) & (199).

YA Urban Fantasy/ SteamPunk/Paranormal
Title: The Doorknob Society
Author: M.J. Fletcher
Date Published: February 9, 2012


Chloe Masters’ world changes in a heartbeat and all she 
did was touch a doorknob. 
When she was young Chloe’s mother vanished. Wracked 
by feelings of abandonment and anger she lost herself 
traveling with her father’s magic act, where illusions 
were part of her everyday life. Yet everything changes 
when they are pursued by a mysterious man in black out 
to kill her father. Touching a doorknob activates abilities 
she never knew she had and she finds herself thrust into 
a world of ancient societies and secrets.
When her father disappears it is a race against time to 
find answers before she loses what’s left of her family. 
Now Chloe must choose who to trust, the man who will 
do anything for her or the one she can’t stop thinking 
My Thoughts...
You know the saying 'don't judge a book by it's cover', well I was guilty of doing that with this book, but inside was a fast-paced, highly entertaining story that I did not want to put down.
I love it when you come across a new book/series that you fall in love with.

The lead heroine Chloe is a kick-ass character with her straight -up no nonsense talk and her ability to stick up for herself and those she loves.

Living with her Dad after her Mum deserted them when Chloe was little, she soon discovers that she can create doorways from out of nowhere and has the ability to walk through a doorway and have it take her anywhere she wants to go, within reason.

She finds out that not only do both of her parents but also her families on both sides have the same/similiar abilities.

Chloe is sent to Paladin Academy, to learn about her gifts and how to control them, while there se makes some new friends and is reunited with long lost family whom she hasn't seen since her Mother's disappearance.

But when her Dad goes missing,Chloe with the help of her new friends take it upon themselves to save him from the New Kind, a new threat who want to take over the council and rule their society.

An amazing start to what appears to be a very addictive series.

I give this 5/5.

YA Urban Fantasy/ SteamPunk/Paranormal
Title: The Impossible Engineers
Author: M.J. Fletcher
Date Published: 27th April 2012


Chloe Masters’s world changes in a heartbeat and all she did was touch a doorknob. 
James Nightshade has been on Chloe’s mind since the day she met him. Arrogant and frustrating, she thought she had put him behind her when she chose Michael Slade.
When the secret she is seeking leads to questions about the death of Nightshade’s former girlfriend, she has no chose but to bring him into the investigation. A move she will come to regret. 
Danger awaits them around every corner as they search for answers. In the end a choice will need to be made, but is Chloe strong enough to make it?
My Thoughts...
I think that I may like this book better than the first one, I say may but they are both such extremely good reads that it's hard to say for sure.

Although Chloe is now dating Slade, she is still undeniably drawn to Nightshade, but he is ignoring her while spending all his time with their friends when she's not around, even Slade and they normally can't stand each other.

With her Father reinstated back into the Society and working to find some old artifacts before the New Kind do, Chloe is keeping a big secret from him and all her friends, the reappearance of her Mother and the fact that she is now working for the New Kind.

But when one of her friends is kidnapped by the New Kind they will only let the person go if and when they are given the newly found artifact, in the fight to survive one of Chloe's friends is tragically lost through sacrificing themselves for her, and oh my god did I cry, there's just no words to describe how upsetting it was, I'm kind of hoping that the person miraculously survived, PLEASE!!

After the ending Im very excited to continue on with this series to see where it goes, I highly recommend both books.

I give this 5/5.
