After finally taking down Torres, her mother’s merciless killer, Reagan and Luke have two targets on their backs and are forced into hiding.

When Reagan discovers her best friend Harper is on the verge of being kidnapped, she and Luke defy Black Angel orders and risk blowing their cover to save their friend. After the rescue attempt goes wrong, the three friends must go on the run with an army of assassins hot on their trail and the list of trust-worthy Black Angels getting smaller and smaller. Will they make it out alive? And at what cost?

Fast-paced and suspenseful, this is the explosive finale of Kristen Orlando’s Black Angel Chronicles series.

Have you ever written a character based on the real you in some part?

Oh…good question! I think there are parts of Reagan that are me. Or at least, parts of her story. Like her feeling torn between following the path her parents want for her versus what she wants for herself. That was me! My parents wanted me to be a doctor and follow in their footsteps (my dad is a physician and my mom is a nurse) but I knew in my heart that I wanted to be a writer. So definitely drew upon my own journey and old emotions while writing that part of Reagan.

Can you tell us about your current projects?

I am just now starting a new standalone YA contemporary. No spies or action in this one! I’m very excited about it. It’s a deeply personal book. Cannot wait for you all to read it one day.

When can the readers expect your next book in print?

I’m just finishing the outline and hope to start writing it soon so will be awhile!

Have you received any awards for your literary works?

I have not but I’d really love to one day!

Fiction or non-fiction? Which is easier?

Oh good question! I guess I wrote non-fiction when I was a TV producer and they are both challenging in their own ways. But for me, I guess fiction is harder. Because you’re just writing about what is in your own mind rather than having facts or even videos to support a non-fiction piece!

Do you attend literary award ceremonies? Do you prepare a perfect speech for that?

I haven’t but I’d probably have a little something in my head if I did!

Did you ever change sentences more than five times just because it didn’t hit the right notes?

Absolutely!! Sometimes you’ve got to keep playing with a sentence until it’s just right. And then change it 3 more times.

Have you ever learned anything thing from a negative review and incorporated it in your writing?

I try not to read a ton of reviews. But I’m all about feedback and I’m constantly asking for feedback from critique partners and beta readers.

It is often said that in order to write something, you must believe in what you are writing. Do you agree with that?

Absolutely. My books are so real to me that I believe everything I’m writing. And I believe in what the characters are saying and going through. So, yes I find that true!
