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
Full of action, dramatic, and tense, this book is all that you need from a YA read.
I love the character of Chloe Masters and the way she develops during the book. Her friends are just an intriguing, and each is markedly different from the others. The baddies are true baddies, but retain just enough realistic elements to stay believable.
The plot is thrilling. It starts off like a 'normal' book, but quickly takes turns which take us into a fantastical world of steampunk and magic. The different story elements blend together well and the places created are truly fascinating.
I would throughly recommend this book to anyone who loves action and/or hard-hitting fantasy.
