FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
You Don’t Know My Name, is a thrilling and intense rollercoaster ride. I highly enjoyed this novel and feel it’s an excellent start to a new YA series.
Reagan has moved around multiple times, taking different last names and leaving everything that she cares about behind. It has been drilled into her that she was chosen, to be a Black Angel. But she is fighting with what she really wants. She wants to be the chosen one for her parents but there’s something inside her that wants a half way normal life.
There’s plenty of action and suspense through out this story. Orlando, is an excellent writer and this being her debut novel. I can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve. If you’re wondering why I did give it a four. I didn’t fully connect with Reagan, on an emotional level.
Overall, I give this story Four Boundless Stars. I can’t wait to see what else happens in this series.
