After finally taking down Torres, her mother’s merciless killer, Reagan and Luke have two targets on their backs and are forced into hiding. With new names, looks, and cover stories, they’re living quiet, “safe” lives, but revenge comes at a steep price. Reagan’s actions continue to haunt the pair and put the people they love in danger.
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.
At the beginning of last year I read You Don’t Know My Name and You Won’t Know I’m Gone back to back and I desperately wanted a third book after finishing the sequel, so I was excited to have a chance to read You Won’t See Me Coming early!
Since You Won’t See Me Coming is the conclusion to the series, I’m going to keep spoilers to a minimum—beware though, there will be spoilers from the previous books. You Won’t See Me Coming begins shortly after the end of You Won’t Know I’m Gone. With Torres, the leader of the drug cartel, dead and his brother out to avenge his death, Reagan and Luke are in deep hiding in a small town in Vermont. However, Reagan finds a suspicious coincidence on her best friend’s social media account and knows the cartel has found her. Not wanting to tip off the mole in the Black Angels, Reagan and Luke take off to New York to save Harper before it’s too late.
What I love about this series is how the stakes have risen in each book. In the first novel, Reagan was very torn between wanting a normal life and becoming a Black Angel. It dealt a lot more with high school and crushes, but turned more spy-thriller towards the end. The spy stuff takes center stage in the sequel as Reagan and Luke enter the training program and Reagan sets her mind on killing Torres. Now in the conclusion, Reagan in dealing with all of the consequences from her actions in the last book and how they have affected the other people in her life.
I felt like I didn’t really get to know Harper in the first book and then she just kind of vanished since Reagan went off on her mission. I liked that Harper came back in this book and that she finally found out about Reagan and now Luke’s secret lives. We do get to know her better in this novel, and I like that we find out what has been going on in her life since Reagan disappeared and how she was affected by it. It was definitely satisfying having the three all back together, even if they were on the run from kidnappers.
Overall, fans of the Black Angel Chronicles will love this action-packed conclusion!
