The full A Thousand Faces series, now available in one book bundle!

A Thousand Echoes

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 wasn't supposed to be part of the job.

A Million Shadows

Sixteen-year-old Jory escaped from the shifters who killed her father, but her life is far from returning to normal--even by the standards of a shape-shifting spy. Jory’s mother is covering her pain with prescription drugs, leaving Jory alone to hide them both from the murderous shifters who are still hot on their tail.

When Jory’s mom lands herself in the hospital, Jory thinks things can’t get any worse. Then she receives an offer from her boyfriend’s mother, Aida--help her track down the man who betrayed them all, and Aida will make sure Jory’s mother stays hidden and safe. There’s just one catch: the man they’re hunting is responsible for her father’s death--and Jory knows Aida means to protect him.

It’s an offer Jory can’t afford to refuse. As she circles closer to her mark, Jory knows she’s playing a game of cat and mouse, but she can’t be sure if she’s the predator or the prey. Before she risks the lives of more people she loves, Jory must decide which of the many dangerous people in her life she’s going to trust.

And who she is going to betray.

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

This bundle includes the first three books of the Shifter Squad Series. 

Seven Psychics: 

Alexis Levine has just graduated from high school and intends to join the Army as soon as she turns eighteen. Her dream is to become a sniper, just like her often absent father. During routine weapons practice, she meets Mark Steel, the head of a small team of agents who work for a mysterious organization. He needs someone with outstanding skills to help his squad destroy seven psychotic psychics. With her father overseas on a mission, she is the next best choice. 

Still reeling from the knowledge that psychics actually exist, Lexi agrees to become a temporary member of the squad. From the first moment that she meets Reece Garrett, she is instantly drawn to him. He is strong, sexy and charismatic and unfortunately thinks of her as little more than a child. 

Agent Garrett and his team have a secret that few people are aware of. They are shape shifters who transform into ravenous beasts with every full moon. The upside of being shifters is that they possess a natural resistance to mind control, which makes them the perfect team to hunt the psychics. But Reece soon learns that some instincts are impossible for even him to deny. Caught in a mind trap that he can't escape from, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to the newest member of their team. 

Zombie King: 

Lexi Levine’s life changed forever the night she became a werewolf. She was only meant to be a temporary addition to the Shifter Squad, but at barely eighteen, she is now a permanent member of the team. 

Well used to facing danger, none of the squad is prepared to meet Lexi's father. Major Philip Levine is a sniper with unparalleled skills. He has returned from his overseas mission to seek answers. Even Lexi isn't sure how he will react when he meets the squad for the first time. 

Still coming to terms with her new role as a shifter, she is in denial about the mysterious link that has sprung up between her and Agent Reece Garrett. She hopes in vain that if she pretends that it doesn't exist, it will just go away. 

If the squad manages to survive her father’s anger, they must then face an even bigger threat. A voodoo practitioner has been raising corpses in New Orleans and the Shifter Squad has been ordered to investigate. If they fail to stop the man who calls himself the Zombie King, his undead minions will soon overrun the city. 

Dark Coven: 

Lexi Levine has a secret that she is desperate to keep from the rest of the Shifter Squad. She is being hunted by a vampire who is determined to turn her into the undead. Lexi hopes that leaving New Orleans will enable her to escape from the fate that is haunting her. 

The squad is sent to West Virginia on a mysterious mission from one of the Paranormal Investigation Agency’s upper echelon. The foes they face this time might be human, yet they are as dangerous and unpredictable as any monsters. 

Lexi discovers that the house they are using for their base of operations is occupied by more than just ordinary people. Burdened with unique talents, only she can see the creatures that are invisible to everyone else. She doesn't know why she is so different from other shifters, but she will have to learn how to use her new abilities if they hope to prevail against the Dark Coven.
