Have you ever experienced that one moment that made you stop and take notice of a person you see every day, but never truly saw before? That’s what happened to me the day Eli Markham walked away from the school bully, instead of fighting.
It wasn’t the first time he’s done this, but it was the first time his eyes found mine in the crowd and held me captive. Now, I can’t get him out of my head and I’m seeing him everywhere.
Problem is, I’m not the only one taking notice of him. Someone, something, has got him in its sights and they want him bad. Bad enough to try to frame him for the murder of the bully he walked away from.
As his alibi for that crime and then another, I’ve stumbled into the crosshairs of the monster that’s after him and losing isn’t an option for it.

What if supernaturals surrounded you and you had no idea? What if every single person you knew had a secret? Faceless is excellent. I loved it from start to finish and could barely put it down. The characters were well written and engaging, the plot was thick with secrets, danger, and intrigue with a decent amount of teen romance and angst. Eli is just the right amount of gorgeous and brooding, respectful and protective- he's stellar book boyfriend material. Nicky and Mackenzie have a devoted and highly entertaining best friend relationship. I loved their interactions. All in all- I loved it. There are several unanswered questions and I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment. Great job! *I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
The victim is the instigator of a school's bullying ring. The story take place in Wasilla, Alaska where there isn’t a lot of excitement. But then a high school jock is killed and it was a brutal attack that happen on school property. There are some supernatural elements that will pull you into the story. I don’t want to give too much of the story away. So if you are looking for a book that will keep you turning the pages, and has a lot of intrigue than I would suggest that you need to pick this one up. This is a young adult fiction, which is written so that you couldn’t put it down. It was such an enjoy I can’t wait to see what Monica Millard, has instore for us in her next book.
This is the first book that I've read by Ms. Millard. I was really impressed. This was a page-turner from beginning to end, intense and mysterious with romance thrown into the supernatural mix. I like the way Ms. Millard uses Mackenzie's voice throughout the story. The language and way she writes Mackenzie's thoughts and emotions are relatable. She is thrown into intense situations quickly and never falters. Perhaps her only fault is how well she is able to process those moments, which in reality I think would leave you quite stunned. When you're thrown into the moment and are left to sink or swim though, the situation calls for action and Mackenzie doesn't disappoint in this novel. She pieces things together and tries to help herself instead of standing by as a victim. I kept wondering the whole novel if there were more to her panic attacks than what meets the eye, so I was happy to have that answer by the end. Mackenzie's parents weren't mentioned as much as I thought they might be, so I hope more of their history is revealed as the series continues in the next book. Eli Markham ends up frustrating me quite a bit more than I expected him to, but he's still endearing knowing his past and how he is trying to protect Mackenzie the best way he knows how. He seems to be really appreciative of his uncle, and I feel bad for him with everything he's been through from both his mother and his father. I love his protective nature. A lot of Eli's behavior or nuances in personality are so much more easy to understand as the story evolves. Every time I feel like you learn a piece about him though, he backs off in a way that made me frustrated. Sam is actually more of my favorite male character in this first book. He is that great guy that looks out for Mackenzie and seems to have all good motives. I found myself wondering if his altruistic motives were going to lead to a romantic entanglement with Mackenzie, but I'll leave that answer for other readers to find out. Sam seems loyal and trustworthy, but his involvement in the pack and with Ezra make you wonder about him (and Daniel and the rest of them), but he seems to slowly gain Mackenzie's trust and respect, and he gained mine as well. I hope he doesn't disappoint moving forward. I would have liked to read in this book a little more about Ezra, the pack, the house and the history there, but I'm hoping that maybe some of that comes in book two. There were plenty of supernatural things introduced in this novel that I'd love to hear more about as Mackenzie's story continues. The book did a nice job of some foreshadowing where Mackenzie's panic attacks and senses were concerned, but left enough to wonder where it was heading that I just couldn't put the book down. The way a lot of the characters end up intertwined by the end of the novel was also something I might have had a hunch about, but not nearly to the extent as you find out in the end. Nice job for Ms. Millard writing the slime ball villain of the story too. I wouldn't want to meet him on any day; he was creepy as all get out and completely evil. Overall-loved the novel. Like I said, I couldn't put it down. A must-read for those that like this genre. I can't wait to read the next one.
