The enigmatic Hancock has been both opponent and ally to the KGI teams for as long as they've known him. Always working a deep game, Hancock's true allegiance has never been apparent, but one thing is for certain—he never lets anything get in the way of duty.
But now, his absolute belief in the primacy of his ultimate goal is challenged by a captive he's been ordered to guard, no matter how much she suffers in her prison. She's the only woman who's ever managed to penetrate the rigid walls surrounding his icy heart, but will he allow his perplexing feelings for the beautiful victim to destroy a mission he's spent years working to complete or will he be forced to sacrifice her for “the greater good.”
Every time Maya Banks releases a new book in the KGI series I am always excited. Even more so, I love books where the so-called "bad guy" gets their own book. Darkest Before Dawn is no exception. Hancock is a force to be reckoned with. He has his own agenda and answers to no one. He is sometimes friend, sometimes foe to the KGI group. When he meets Honor Cambridge, his mission is to turn her over to the people who are trying to kill her for no other reason than she is doing her job. Before long she is under his skin and he's conflicted. Does he turn her over and complete his mission, or does he protect her? Darkest Before Dawn is a must read. Hancock, while sometimes you want to punch him, you end up rooting for him to do what is right. If you like romantic suspense, I definitely recommend Darkest Before Dawn and the rest of the KGI series.
