My name is Brandt Cross, and I died. Again… 

I'm living in the body of a Six named Douglass Cain, a certifiable scumbag whose ability is on Zendean Industries—AKA Denazen's—most wanted list. There’s some serious bad going down, and Ginger, the leader of the Underground, sent me undercover to obtain information because people are dying. 

My cousin, Dez, is dying…

Disappointing. I enjoyed the previous books in the series (even though Kale, the love interest, really really fucked me off in the second book) but Faceless was mediocre at best. I'm glad this was a novella rather than a full novel because it was seriously lacking.
Brandt's (Dez's cousin) POV was a huge let down. I liked him in Touch and Toxic — he was funny, somewhat mysterious and all around good guy but in this he was annoying, dull and judgmental. His powers were cool though — if he d

What I’ve always liked about this series is the writing. Jus knows how to make you laugh with her dialogue and she can create interesting characters that stand out above the others. I liked reading this novella, getting to know Brandt a little better, and seeing other Sixes. I’ll say this, it takes a minute to get into things and it was kind of slow for me during the first third of the book, but once Brandt gets adjusted to his new body and goes on his assignment, things really pick up, and then ...more
I adore Jus Accardo's work, so when I heard she was writing another novella in the Denazen series, I was super happy because I can't get enough of her work and although Faceless isn't a favourite, it's still a great addition to the series.

Faceless is Brandt's - Dez's cousin's novella and I've always been a fan of his, since the start of the series. He has a great relationship with Dez but of course, we all know what happens (if you've read the series) Dez struggles a lot of Brandt's departure,

My name is Brandt Cross, and my life used to be seven kinds of fucked up… Now it’s eight…

I really liked Brandt. Jumping into other people's bodies is hard work. He battles manfully against all his personalities' impulses and lack of self-control.

Deep breaths. Stronger. I was stronger than him.

The poor kid is so schizo. But I had to admire his resolve and his iron will to do what's right.
I really felt for him as he constantly has to remind himself who he is.

Brandt was someone I liked from the beginning so to be able to see him get his own story, I was so all over that! He may not be the same Brandt on the outside but he's just about the same Brandt on the inside, plus a few additions.

He's a six and his ability is pretty cool; when his 'host' body dies, his soul jumps in to the next body around. The catch? That body has to be a six. The bonus? Any body he takes over he also gets their ability. So you can see how valuable an ability like this could b

I received a free pdf copy of this novella from the lovely Anjana at Entangled in exchange for my honest review, and I managed to get it converted so I could read it on my kindle.
I like the cover, and I understand that the shading fits in with the nature of the book and the fact that Brandt is literally "in the shadows" but I am a little disappointed that the shading affects the title on the cover. I like the fonts used on the cover and with the exception of the title all are clear and

I've been intrigued by Brandt since the Denazen series started. We've always gotten these short little glimpses of the protective older cousin, but not a lot of depth into his character. I was really excited to learn that Faceless was going to be from his POV.

Faceless begins with Brandt having just killed the body he has been wearing up to this point, Sheltie, in order to jump into Cain. Cain is a member of Zendean, an organization that Brandt need

Faceless is Brandt Cross, Dez's cousin's story. Brandt is a "Six." He is also a "soul jumper." What that means is that when he dies, he jumps into the soul of the Six that is closest to him at the time of his death. Not only does he take over their body, he also inherits whatever ability that Six has. After his cousin Dez becomes deathly ill, Brandt goes in undercover to try to find a cure for Dez and other Six's in the same predicament. His assignment ends up involving quite a bit more than he ...more

I’m new to this series, and just jumping into the most current book. It sort of feels like Heroes meets X-men, but with a more dangerous edge. It took me a minute to get certain terminology down, but once I got ahold of that I was in for the ride, excited about the premise. There were a lot of alliterated names and companies that made it a bit difficult for more to differentiate for me at times. However, the variance of characters and the exciting action filled plot line more than made up for th ...more

Ok, let me start with the fact that Jus writes the MOST AWESOME GUYS EVER. I think I find a new love in each book hehe

Faceless is the story of Brandt, Dez’s cousin for all of you who read the Denazen Series. And as you can gather from the blurb above, he’s not the luckiest guy. I mean he died twice already! Granted soul-jumping is better than being dead-dead... but is also very confusing for the jumper...

Brandt is sent looking for Wentz and to try to get the cure before Denazen does, and his job

There are no words to explain just how excited I was for Faceless. I have long been a massive fan of the wonderful Jus Accardo. Ever since reading Touch I was obsessed with the Denezen series. It's is fast-paced and addictive and this novella was no different. I was completely hooked by Jus' phenomenal writing style and couldn't stop reading until I was done. This is another fantastic installment to the Denezen series.

Dez' cousin Brandt was one of my favourite character

It's become quite obvious to me that Jus learned how to write from the school of "WOW! Now THAT'S what I call an adventure!" where she majored in kick ass action scenes. And kisses.

In this installment of the Denazen series, we get to learn about a character who has intrigued me from the first page he was introduced in TOUCH. Brandt Cross, the tough, snarky skateboarder with a sensitive side. I've never forgotten his loyal

2.5 Stars. I didn't actually realise that this novella had come out until I received the email from Entangled Publishing. I then rushed to Amazon to buy it knowing that I had to have it at once. I fell in love with the Denazen series at the beginning of last year and since then none of the books have disappointed.

I really enjoy the crap out of the Denazen series, so I was excited to read this novella as I waited for Tremble to be released. It's told from Brandt's POV, which is a unique POV to say the least. He's a soul jumper, and is trying to retain his original identity somewhere inside of himself even as he takes over the bodies (and memories) of other people. In this story, he's trying to keep a possible Supremacy cure out of the hands of Denazen by going undercover at a corporation where a genius na ...more

I found this a nice addition to the series. Whilst it didn't blow me away like the first two books, I have to say nevertheless I found it a good read. The reason for this simply is that I just love the two character Dez and Kale and without them featuring in this story, well it was like having a cup of tea without a biscuit, refreshing but not totally satisfying.

I did like finding out more about Brandt, we really got to know him a little bi

I received this book from Anjana for a honest review. I wanted to be a part of this blog tour because I heard so many good things about this series and I will read it very soon.

Even I hadn't read any book from this series, I liked so much "Faceless" <3 This book is about Brandt Cross, Dez's cousin who is a Six and he can jump when his body dies in other bodies. He must be undercover in Zendean and he must find a cure for Dez. She is dying and he must take this cure from Wentz who is a genius

Ok this novella was a cute addition to this series and one that I enjoyed reading. I loved that we got more back story on Brandt as he really is an important character to this series and we didn't really know much about him. I have to say I think I am in love with his Six ability. I don't know that I would like the dying part but it sounds really cool and is so different from most of the abilities out there.Brandt was a really cool character though and one that is starting to grow on me.

At first I was really annoyed to be reading from Brandt's POV, but He really grew on me. I actually hope there will be way more of Brandt in the future. This novella flowed seamlessly with the rat of the series and is integral in understanding the dichotomy of the employees of Denazen. Te insight this novella brings gives more meaning to the events in book 3.

First line: My name is Brandt Cross, and I once ate a caterpillar on a dare...

I love the Denzazen books, and decide to read Faceless (#2.5) before reading the final book! I've always enjoyed Brandt's character and the soul jumping aspect is cool. I was pretty bored by the book up until about 15-20% on my kindle. I almost quit reading it but it got much better when introduced to a new character named Wentz. He stole the story for me!

Brandt is a really nice guy with a ton of emotional baggage. Hi

A nice read. I was a bit frustrated with how Brandt handled his mission though. As much of a romantic as I am, I can be a picky realist from time to time so it kinda annoyed me a bit when he got caught up with Devin instead of putting everything into getting the cure. I do love stories that focus on romance and understand that stories don't always have to reflect real life, but I would've liked the focus of the story to be a tiny bit less on Brandt's relationship with Devin and more on g
I'd been waiting for this since I read Toxic. I'd been through so many stage waiting and guessing when will the release date and finally the wait is over and it was freaking worth it!

Brandt Cross is so dreamy... ( Don't be jealous, Kale. You're still my number one)

Almost all the people in this book are complete douchebags except Brandt, Devin and Wenzt, orz.

Wenzt is so adorable and the key for my Kale and Dez's happily ever after (I hope!).

I am a big fan of Denazen series and I think I feel in

So here's the deal with this one... I absolutely adored Untouched. The added summer events with Kale and Dez really added to the story. I want as much of Dez and Kale's story as possible. Now, while Faceless was important and really added to the story, I wasn't as attached to Brandt. Don't get me wrong Brandt is adorable and I love that he would do anything for his family, but I guess I was hoping for more Dez and Kale. I suppose I will have to wait for Tremble!!!

This novella was so good that at moments it literally left me speechless. I absoloutely loved it. Spending time with Brandt, Devin and Wentz was so much fun. I can't believe I'm going to say this but I found myself so thoroughly enjoying this novella that I didn't even miss Kale and Dez. This story was interwoven with theirs just enough they were on the periphery while I read but I was so consumed with Brandt's story I wasn't longing for them to make an appearance.

Jus Accardo is one of my favorite YA authors, so I was really excited to finally have the pieces I needed to figure out Brandt part in this bizarre but entertaining story.

Brandt has a really bizarre talent, he can't be killed , his soul can jump into the closet available body to him. He found this out when he was murdered by a Denizan flukey.

Short review due to my inability to review this book without supplying spoilers.

It took me long enough to read this!
Well... I just feel in love with Dez's cousin!
He's so sweet and nice and fun..
Oh *sigh*
I didn't expect to like him that much..
One thing I like about Brandt and Dez relationship is that I love that they are cousins! I read a lot about close friends or close brothers... I think this is the first time I read about such close cousins... It's a simple detail, really.. Not very relevant to the story itself... But one that called my attention anyway..

Mar 13, 2013 rated it it was ok
Perhaps a little longer than it needed to be, as the bulk of it felt like filler consisting of high-school-type friction between generic asshole side characters.
Otherwise provided backstory on how Brandt 'became' Cain (and now Harley), as well as introducing Wentz & his special formula that has become part of the newest 'cure' for the Sixes (including the Supremacy test subjects).

This book was really cool - not 'awesome' but just really fricking cool.
I like how we got to hear more of Brandt's story, AND add to the overall series, AND have a little breather from Dez and Kale. I mean I read the next book, and without reading this one, I would be pretty lost. Note to self, always read the .5s ...

4.4 stars :)

Off to devour the next book!

FACELESS is good addition to the Denazen series. I did like being able to find out what Brandt had been up to as he was so vague when speaking to Dez, also I now fully understand his ability as a Six and its pretty cool. I didn't like the story as much as I hoped but it is worth reading. Wentz made the story for me, I love his character! Can't wait to meet him again in TREMBLE.
