      "When it came to impressions, trying to hard was the easiest way to fail".Sixteen-year-old Jory is still perfecting her powers and about to pull through her first solo spie job as a shape shifter when we get to know her. Shortly after her first job, her parents don't return from a supposedly easy job, and now it is up to Jory to make her way in a world full of lies and intrigues and rescue her family. "To some extent, all relationships are about proximity. You don't fall for someone you've never [...]

      This was far better than I expected. I've started so many poorly written shapeshifter stories I haven't been able to finish, but this one carried me through to the end with brilliant worldbuilding and a concrete magic system that beautifully grounded the supernatural elements in the story. The pacing was excellent, and while this book isn't quite at mind-blowing five-star status for me, I give it a very high four-star ranking and recommend it as an engaging, thought-provoking read. I look forwar [...]

      I read this book after a FB recommendation from Brandon Sanderson. Boy am I glad I did. This is a great new world with new magic and story in the YA Fantasy world. It's the best YA that I've read this year not written by Sanderson. Very well done.

    4. Robyn on said:

      I think this is the first in a series, at least it is set up to be, but there is plenty of plot for it to stand alone. There are unique people who can change and shift their bodies to look like anyone. but they keep themselves secret from the world. A family works together to spy and steal. The daughter thinks it is wrong and longs for a different life. The parents go missing and the Daughter and her new boyfriend try to find them. Some violence, no language, no sex.

      I bought this book for my Kindle after Brandon Sanderson recommended it on his Facebook page, so I was expecting something totally epic. I was rather disappointed.Jory is a shifter, someone born with the ability to change her body and face to look like almost anyone--male, female, old, young, short, tall, fat, thin--you get the idea. Her parents are shifters too, and so are her best friend Kalif and his parents. They make a living using their abilities to conduct corporate espionage, stealing te [...]

      Check out my Booklikes Blog, Dan Grover: Cover to CoverThe Value of a Star: Ratings ExplainedThis was a nice, quick read from an indie who's getting a shot a success because Brandon Sanderson gave her a pretty nice recommendation on his blog.This is YA spy stuff. Jory and her parents are "Shifters"--they can change their body at will to look like anyone they want. They are spies for hire. Despite the moving around, the secrecy, the lack of friendships, and the constant worry about being discov [...]

      I don't think I would have stumbled upon this book if it weren't for Brandon Sanderson mentioning (and praising) it in one of his blog posts. I'm so glad I did, but at the same time it's a bit of a shame. Janci Patterson is clearly a fantastic writer who does YA so well that I feel like I should have stumbled upon her on my own. She absolutely needs a bigger audience and I sincerely hope that this book takes off big time.Everything about this book is so well done, so down to earth, that I think [...]

      The novel, A Thousand Faces by Janci Patterson is a very adventurous, edgy, romantic book that I would recommend to any teenager. This book is about and narrated by a 15 year old girl named Jory, who is a shape shifter spy that can be any person she would like. She works along side of her mother and father, and three other "shifter" spies, Kalif and his parents. Sometimes she runs missions for her parents while they are either on another job or watching what they need to do next in her training. [...]

      This is a candy-read. It is written, I feel, for the younger side of young adult. It involves shape-shifting people who live among us. When the main character's parents suddenly disappear, she has to figure out where they went and who she can trust to help her. I seem to remember the explanations that set up the world are a little convoluted. I'm never a big fan of books that rely on the teenager/near adult being kept in the dark about things that they really should have been told. But it was fa [...]

    10. Benjamin on said:

      Not what I was expecting, the story dragged and continuously grounded itself with awkward romance scenes. I know that this was YA, but we have been spoiled in the last few years with rather epic YA stories that tried to reach beyond the genre, this book is not in that category.In short, I truly did not care about the characters in the slightest. We did not learn enough about them before they were thrown into the action to care what happened to them. The shifting was not well explained in my opin [...]

    11. Robert on said:

      I slogged my way through about a third of the book and found myself dreading going back to it. The shape-shifting structure and rules are somewhat compelling, but are forced down your throat rather than explored through exciting use of them.The plot is predictable, slow and flat, but the sappy, unimaginative and unrealistic teenage romance is what killed it for me.Perhaps this would be a good read for a teen just getting into sci-fi.Enjoyable: 5/10Honest: 5/10Intelligent: 5/10Uplifting: 5/10

    12. Dan on said:

      Sort of a thriller, I guess? Jory the shapeshifter breaks into a series of increasingly dangerous corporations, trying to find her missing parents. I subtracted a star for the ending: (view spoiler)[I get that young-adult novels are supposed to feature the protagonist acting without parental supervision, and this means the author needs to find a reason why the parents aren't around. But killing Jory's dad in the middle of an action sequence was just needlessly brutal. (hide spoiler)]

    13. Katherine Cowley on said:

      Fast-paced novel about a teenager who works for her parents as a shape-shifter to perform corporate espionage. Then her parents go missing and she must do everything she must find them before it's too late. And of course, you can't forget the romance, which adds both delight and tension to this sci-fi mystery novel.I've actually read this book twice, and it was still a page-turner the second time. I'm really looking forward to reading the sequels when they come out.

    14. Anne on said:

      I think the concept for this book is really original.And the sample was good.But it's too expensive for a self-published author.I'm sure the author thinks that she is worth the price, and she might be right.But since I'm not familiar with her writing, and I have a limited book budget, I'm not willing to spend the additional couple of dollars her book costs over similar books.Even if she is recommended by Brandon Sanderson, whose stories I love & will pay a lot for.

    15. Danny Johnson on said:

      I mostly enjoyed this book. The first half was kind of slow and it took me a while to get into it. It is written in first person point of view by the main character who is a teenaged girl. I liked the whole idea of shape shifting spies. The pace picked up at the end. I was a little disappointed in the ending because very little was resolved, but I guess that's what sequels are for.

    16. Karlene Browning on said:

      A good YA urban/contemporary sci-fi. Loved the concept of this book—shape-changing characters hiding among the "normal" humans. Lots of suspense, with twists and turns. There's a romance that gets a little too intimate for me to comfortably recommend it to teens. Not explicit, but something I'd want to talk to my kids about if they read it.

    17. Alissa on said:

      I loved this book, and I want another right now. Just saying. (But seriously, when does the sequel come out???) This book is a fast-paced thriller/spy story with shapeshifters. I love Jory and Kalif and how they use each other's strengths to solve problems. I highly recommend. Since this is YA, I'm going to give a little content warning of a sex scene.

    18. Jennifer Autry on said:

      There are some intimate moments, but no sex scenes in this novel. It is a fun science fiction, mystery, and romance novel rolled into one. It was interesting to read about how shape shifting would be done by a shape shifter.

    19. Peter R Richardson on said:

      DecentI enjoyed it for the most part. The ending was fairly dull. I'm not a huge fan of reading from the perspective of teenage girls. Worth reading but not spectacular. I would read a sequel. The premise is good and the story line is quick paced and fun.

    20. Sean Randall on said:

      Another one of Michael's excellent finds, a story that doesn't waste time on explanations but throws you into itself with delightful story from the very beginning. Well worth a look, and I'm anticipating more!

    21. Chris on said:

      A change of faceI like that not only are the characters shape shifters, with its own peculiar world, but the plot is like something out of Game Of Thrones, intrigue, bold drama, betrayals, and life or death. And secretsn't wait for the next one. Good luck Jory

    22. Laurel on said:

      An interesting young adult novel with an endearing main character. The plot was full of twists and turns which made this book overall a very enjoyable read.
