The Doorknob Society Book Tour


The Doorknob Society by MJ Fletcher

Goodreads summary:
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 review:
A couple chapters into this book, I was convinced that it was okay, but that I would not love it. I am happy to say I was wrong. I got completely absorbed in this story!

I love all of the action in this book. Action always seems to make books move faster. Especially for me, because I refuse to stop reading until I am at a point where I know everyone is okay.

All of the societies, guilds, etc. were very creative. It was a great idea for a story that kids young and old will enjoy. I know I did. The mystery aspect of the book really kept me interested as well.

I loved the characters and how different they all were. I loved the love triangle (square actually). I felt like it added a lot to a story that otherwise was all just about the action and mystery.

And the end is the perfect cliffhanger! I HAVE to read the second book now!

5 stars

I received this book for free in return for an honest review.

Excerpt:
I grasped the knob and twisted it. The feeling that ran through me were amazing; the turn of the world beneath my feet, the dance of the planets through the universe and the taste eternity on my lips as it all opened up and poured through me. I pushed the doorway open and the glow of a portal bathed the kitchen in its welcoming light.
“You did it.” Jess seemed impressed and surprised, her eyebrows arching.
“Noooo!” Gran’s scream startled us both as she came hurtling into the room, crashed into the island and crumbled to the floor. Blood poured from a gash along her hairline. She tried hard to get to her feet but it was no use. She had spent all her energy and finally slumped in defeat to the floor.
Her head lolled to the side and with a terror-filled glare that sent chills up my spine, she whispered, “Run.”
