Usually when I read a book series, subsequent books aren't quite as good as the first.  Well, I'm happy to say that's not the case with THE IMPOSSIBLE ENGINEERS.  It happens to be EVEN BETTER than the Doorknob Society.  We learn more about the characters, a lot more.  They are now like old friends. I wasn't so sure about Chloe in the first book, now I want her for my best friend!  Team Nightshade or Team Slade?  I'm glad I picked the right team.  Edgar is still my favorite.  We are introduced to a few new characters in this installment.  Faith, Jasper, Gavin and of course, Talia Grimm-Masters.   The book just flows..  It's easy to read and a perfect continuation of book one.  Action packed from the beginning right through to the end.   Only, it's not an end.  What society group is featured in the next book?  Hmmm...I can't wait to read the next book.   

MJ Fletcher has created an amazing series with fabulous characters and situations.  Remember while you are reading, these are high schoolers.  Just kids really.  I found myself glued to the pages of the book.  Couldn't put it down, I was too afraid I would miss something.  I reread pages over and over to see if I missed clues about certain people.   

I look forward to the rest of the books.  I give this book 5 stars..and recommend you read The Doorknob Society and The Impossible Engineers.
