Reagan has to prove herself to an elite group of special agents—and avenge her mother’s death—in the second book in the Black Angel Chronicles from the author of You Don’t Know My Name.
Going rogue in an effort to rescue her kidnapped parents has cost Reagan Hillis her automatic ticket to the Training Academy. But becoming a Black Angel is the only way Reagan will be able to exact revenge on her mother’s merciless killer, Santino Torres.
When Reagan is given a chance to prove that she’s worthy of training to be a Black Angel, she also gets the first chance she’s ever had to be her true self. No aliases. No disguises.

But when her friend Luke joins her at the Black Angels training compound, Reagan finds herself once again torn between the person she was and the person she wants to be. Reagan has to prove that she’s as good as her parents trained her to be, because she’ll never find Torres without the Black Angels’ help.

Author Bio:
Writing is one of the great loves of Kristen Orlando’s life and she has been lucky enough to make it her living, first as a television producer, then as a marketer and now as a novelist. Kristen graduated with a B.A. in English literature from Kenyon College. She lives in Columbus, Ohio with the other great love of her life, Michael. You Don’t Know My Name is her debut novel.



Holy guacamole!!! This was an absolutely fantastic sequel to the equally fantastic You Don't Know My Name!! Kristen Orlando has written yet another amazing story that grips you instantly and never lets you go. The entire books is thrilling and exciting with nonstop action and a story that revolves around revenge. The story hurtles toward an ending that you know can only end badly, but I never expected the conclusion to be so explosive! 

The story picks up right where the first book left off. Reagan, who has lost her automatic acceptance into the Black Angels, must now prove herself in the Training Academy. I loved this aspect of the story because it was here where Reagan was able to fully explore her emotions and depression after her mother died. Along the way, she makes some new friends and when a person returns for her past, it kind of throws her for a loop. 


Reagan is truly a great character to follow and is the perfect MC. This book is all about her figuring out what to do now. She is lost without her mother and feels tremendous grief and responsibility over her death. I was interested to see how she would react to everything that happened following the first book, and she reacted exactly how I expected. Reagan is dead set on revenge, but she also knows that in order to secure her place in the Black Angels she has to set herself on the straight and narrow going rogue, no talking back, and always following orders. But that's definitely not easy for her to do when it goes against everything in her nature. Reagan goes on a very emotional journey as she has to not only build herself back up physically but psychologically. I was hoping that Reagan would choose to go in a different direction than what she did, but her decision ultimately fit with her character. I am interested to see what happens with her character in the future and how her decisions in this book will affect her in the next.

I also loved the addition of her friends, Anusha and Cam. They were very supportive of her and really helped her through her toughest times. I loved them as characters and I hope to see them again in the next book. The action scenes were written brilliantly and this is definitely a major highlight of Kristen Orlando's writing. She makes the action scenes come alive and you feel as if you are right there next to the characters.


I highly recommend checking this book out when it becomes available. Kristen Orlando has delivered yet another action-packed and thrilling story that keeps you at the edge of your seat while reading. I honestly cannot wait until the 3rd book comes out to see where the story goes and all the twists and turns Kristen Orlando will throw our way!

Happy reading :)
