Series: The Doorknob Society
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?
A very rare thing has happened today, I've read a sequel that was more amazing than the first book. The Impossible Engineers was so much better than the first and I thought the first was pretty good. This series is turning out to be action packed and full of so much intensity that I can't wait to complete this and I do hope that the author comes out with a spin off as I read on the books website. Because really this needs to be a TV show or something so I can see it all the time. That's how good this book was.
We are back with Chloe and her chaotic world of this secret society with special powers. They are just getting over their last attack when more chaos breaks out. They are in a rush to find another artifact before the First Kind does. There's danger around every corner for Chloe and her friends. While trying to deal with the fact that her Mother is working for the other side that she is trying to defeat she is trying hard to keep it all together and keep that strength she has within herself. Her boyfriend Slade is turning out to be not the person she thought he was.
Slade has been announcing to anyone who would listen to how he and Chloe were going to the school dance, and if you know Chloe that is just not the type of person she is but she does it anyway to appease him. But before this she meets his family for the first time which doesn't go as smoothly as she thought it would. There is so much tension between everyone that there are little cracks that break their barriers down and you begin to wonder exactly who is it that you can trust anymore
With her mom, the dance, Slade and of course finding the artifact there is so much going on in her life that she is all over the place. But there is one person who gets her better than anyone and that's Nightshade. In this book you explore their relationship a little further and you can plainly see how much they belong together, but sometimes things don't work out the way they should. Chloe also learns that she seems to have more abilities than her friends do but she cant trust anyone with this information and that tears her apart inside because i think all she wants is someone she can finally confide in completely.
All in all this book was intense and had so many different things happening. You have parental issues, boyfriend issues, action, adventure, new experiences, trust issues and just everything you could think of and all this intensified greatly. Really I finished this book and all I thought man was that amazing and seriously intense. I think it was all the action that was going on, really fabulous. Once you get going you can't stop. Sure the ending isn't what I wanted because I am a hopeless romantic and wanted things to end differently but I still have hope that something will fix this. I just know it will, or at least hope it will.
Read the book, read the first book, get into this series because it will be an adventure you will not forget and what a ride it was. Intense, fun and exciting this book was great and I am loving the new covers for this series so simple yet so intriguing. AH-MA-ZING READ! I love all the characters and the story is just fun.
Don't forget to check out the first book in the series, my review can be found here.
