Jory is in training to be a full member of the family business-when she can convince her parents to let her help with their elaborate cons.
But when Jory's parents go missing on the job, Jory is thrown into a world of secrets, lies, and stolen identities that will put all her training to the test. Jory's always wanted to be a member of the team-
But saving her family wasn't supposed to be part of the job.
Other Praise for A THOUSAND FACES:
"A Thousand Faces is a well-plotted race of a story with fantastic world building. A paranormal Mission Impossible for teens, Jory's world and story are so meticulously parsed together they make you want to look twice at every face you see on the street." -- Aprilynne Pike, #1 NYT bestselling author of the Wings series
"A Thousand Faces is one of those rare books that can include heartbreaking and swoon-worthy romance and equally skillful action and suspense. It's a terrific novel." -Robison Wells, author of the Blackout series
"A THOUSAND FACES is the YA thriller I've been waiting for: a fantastic, troubled heroine, struggling with an incredible power she only barely controls, trapped in a web of supernatural espionage where she can't trust anyone. The pace is quick, the intrigue is devious, and the magic is absolutely fascinating. A brilliant combination of romance, science fiction, and the supernatural." -Dan Wells, author of the Partials Series.
