My new science fiction novel, A THOUSAND FACES, will be out near the end of this month. This is one my favorite parts of releasing a book: the part where I get to show you the cover:
Here’s the cover copy!
In her debut YA science fiction novel, Janci Patterson presents a thriller that #1 NYT bestseller James Dashner calls “a fantastic book” and #1 NYT bestseller Brandon Sanderson calls “hands down one of my favorite novels of the year.”
In the world of high-stakes espionage, it pays to be able to change your face. And that’s just what sixteen-year-old Jory and her family of shape-shifting spies can do—alter their faces and bodies to look like anyone. 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 may be the most difficult job of all.
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
