About this Series

Fighter, faker, student, spy.

In Kristen Orlando’s thrilling young adult spy series The Black Angel Chronicles, seventeen-year-old Reagan Elizabeth Hillis is used to changing identities overnight, lying to every friend she’s ever had, and pushing away anyone who gets too close. Trained in mortal combat and weaponry her entire life, Reagan is meant to follow in her parents’ footsteps and join the ranks of the most powerful top-secret agency in the world, the Black Angels. Falling in love with Luke, the boy next door, was never part of the plan.

As she becomes caught up in a series of intense international adventures, Reagan fights for the right to forge her own path. But with the pressure to see through her intended future with the Black Angels, and with Luke by her side, she only becomes more certain of what she wants.

Praise for You Don’t Know My Name (The Black Angel Chronicles #1)

“This is my ideal sort of book, full of tension, action, romance, family issues, and a girl struggling to figure out her identity. Kristen Orlando has created a kickass character&mdashliterally!&mdashI was won over instantly. I can’t wait for the sequel!” -Sara Shepard, #1 New York Times Best Selling author of The Pretty Little Liars series

“Debut author Orlando strikes a fast-paced, flirty, and mostly believable balance between timely teenage conflicts (crippling anxiety, fruitless study sessions, humiliating house parties) and pure peril. This one’s a page-turner, and the unexpectedly catastrophic conclusion&mdashand lingering promise of sweet revenge&mdashsuggests Orlando, much like Reagan, is just getting started.” -Booklist

At its core, it is an action-packed novel about searching for oneself in the midst of heavy expectations. The violence is plot-advancing rather than gratuitous, while the main character is a strategizing, brave teen who is attempting to find her way both in the moment and into her own future. A solid addition to high school collections, especially those with patrons who love stories of spy craft and secret identities, with a splash of romance-School Library Journal

“This action-packed suspense novel is the first in a new series that features a kick-ass female protagonist whose training regimen and smoldering love interest rival that of Divergent’s Tris Prior.”-Bookpage

“If you are a fan of Ally Carter’s Gallager Girls or Heist Society, You Don’t Know My Name needs to be on your radar. The protagonist is a strong, likable character and the romance that develops is sweet. Then there is the heart-stopping action and the suspenseful and explosive ending.” -Romantic Times Book Review
