Title: The Doorknob Society
Author: M.J. Fletcher
Chloe Masters’s 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.
I really love the premise of the book. When I first read the synopsis of this book, I knew I needed to read it, and the story didn't disappoint! The story was so mysterious and suspenseful. I was begging the book for more information because I couldn't stand the suspense and mystery (which could be good and bad)! I really enjoyed the steampunk and sci-fi elements. The story was full of action and the pace was great. The romance was okay and typical. Team Michael or James? Team neither, not a big fan of love triangle. Plus I don't know, I didn't feel them.
Chloe was the typical kickass character that stood up for what she believed, but her own emotional issues (which is the reason for the love triangle). She was feisty but kept on saying that she didn't want a relationship. I don't quite know how I feel about her. I guess I just don't like "typical", haha, call me hipster.
I think this book was a good read but really the only problem was the relationship between the character. I don't like repetition about how Chloe was broken (it took up the first part of the book). Thanks, bye, I'm out. Also at times I just wanted to skip over the chapters to find out what happened in the end because I wanted to know the mystery. It sure was tempting.
