Kelly Group International (KGI) is a super-elite, top
secret, family run business. This highly intelligent group
of hard-bodied ex-military men take
hostage/kidnap recovery, intelligence gathering and
generally handle jobs the U.S. government can't, or won't.
Sometimes they have dealt with situations and
hoped to survive the DARKEST BEFORE DAWN with their lives
Hancock has worked with the KGI team in a number of covert
situations. Always working a deep game the only thing about
him that is certain - he will get the job done.
Honor is a young woman working at a clinic in the
Middle East. When the clinic is bombed, she is the only
survivor, but if the terrorists find her she will be as
dead as her co-workers. After managing to elude the bad
guys, she isn't able to elude Hancock. Is he there to
rescue her, or use her for his own plans? Can this sweet and
and loving woman survive a dangerous situation and a man
who doesn't seem to have a heart?
DARKEST BEFORE DAWN is filled with a lot of twists and
turns. Author Maya Banks has written a number of KGI books
(this is #10) but though she brings back a number of
characters there is no hint of the "sameness" that you find
in some series. There was maybe a bit too much repetitive
discussion of the attitudes and expectation toward women in
this particular area, but perhaps the author felt it was
needed to make us understand the world better. This is a
military based action book, so there is a good bit of gun
play and violent engagements but it is balanced out, in my
opinion, by the camaraderie with his men, the Kelly family
and, of course, the steamy moments that involve Hancock and
There were a number of times I very nearly hated Hancock,
and other times I thought I understood what he was doing
and why, and had to give him the benefit of the doubt.
After everything Honor had gone through you would expect
her to have hardened a bit, but she was still sweetness and
innocence until it came to a certain point but you will
have to read DARKEST BEFORE DAWN to find out all the how's
and why's of what finally got to her, and of course what it
was that brought her back. As with all the other KGI books
Ms. Banks has written and are in my possession, this one is
definitely a keeper.
