The Doorknob Society by MJ Fletcher (Books 1&2)

The Doorknob SocietyBook Description:
Chloe Masters’s world changed 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 is 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 about.

My Thoughts:
I completely enjoyed this book.  Chole has always been around her father's magic act.  The 'door trick' is just something he does for the least that is what she thought until she needed an escape and turned a doorknob!  Now she is thrown into a whole new world she never knew about and isn't sure exactly what she can believe about her past.
I loved getting to know Chole.  She and all the other characters are well developed in this story and there are oh so many interesting ones to meet!  There is a whole new world for her to learn and it just feels right for her, like it was something she's always missed.  The romantic angle was intriguing and there was plenty of action and adventure!
I rate this one a 5/5.  Great new concept for a series! 

The Impossible EngineersDescription:
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:
Wonderful sequel.  Chole and the group pick up where the author left off in book one.  Now, she has secrets to keep, puzzles to solve and guys to choose....or is that guy?  She is a member of the Doorknob Society now.  She is dating Slade, but still thinks about Nightshade.  A series of events forces them to work together and Chole is stuck in the middle of a love triangle and danger. 
We get to know Chole a bit better, she already seemed like a friend.  The other characters continue to be developed as well.  Storyline stays smooth and flows.  Plenty of action and adventure in this one with still some romance. 
I rate this one a 5/5 and I can't wait to read the next one.
