It seems I am attracted to good books. I couldn't put this one down. I found myself up at 2 am reading Faceless. The title first of all got my attention. I wanted to read it. The opening was an interesting set up for what we would be reading. Big bodied Eli,being bullied and our tiny leading lady Mackenziebecomes his focus. The pace of the book was fast but comfortable; nothing felt undone with the plot.
The characters were supernatural beings whether they were aware of it or not. There wasn't alot of complexity to most of the characters. Eli was the most layered having being the 'tall, handsome and brooding', guy that suddenly showed interest in Mackenzie. He was the one who opened up and showed more of himself. Mackenzie and Nicky were pretty much open books.
The author chose to blend supernatural with the human world. Mackenzie being inexplicably strong when having a 'panic attack' and Nicky being able to see things or have 'feelings', lent the characters to much speculation about their supernatural powers.The book progressed quickly and jumped right into the action. The enemies became friends and protectors. The real enemy remained "Faceless". I guess that was deliberate. What saved this book was that there was some closure. We got reasons why things happened, a sense of who the enemy really was and that things would change. These changes would eventually evolve into something good.
Honestly,the plot was to the point and didn't give a sense of depth. This book was good but seemed more like a 'long short story" if you will.
