Garrett Kelly is sent on a mission to capture Marcus Lattimer – a man that had cost the lives of the very men sent in to save him years earlier. Its personal with Garrett – a point of honor to see Marcus pay for his treasonous acts. So when Resnick wants Garret to stake out Sarah Daniels, a pawn that will bring Lattimer out of hiding, he’s eager to take the assignment.
Here are some quotes from the beginning of Maya Banks’ “Hidden Away”:
“‘I’m so sorry, Marcus. It should have been me who killed him,’ she [Sarah Daniels] whispered.”….
“‘So where do I come in?’ Garrett asked.”….
“‘Yeah. He’ll [Marcus Lattimer] show. Sarah’s too important to him. She’s the only … thing he seems to care about in the world….'” [from Resnick]
Garrett senses a connection with Sarah from the beginning. He knows she’s been badly hurt but is torn. He must stay true to the mission – catch Marcus Lattimer.
Will his reasons for deception be enough to convince Sarah he had honorable intentions?
Harry Berkley delivers again with an emotionally charged reading of Hidden Away. The characters take on a new vivid life as I listen. Really first rate rendition.
Maya Banks tackles the tough topics in this story with grace and dignity. She gives the women in her stories difficult roles that they are well able to handle. I enjoy reading about strong women taking on tasks that have been given to men for far too long.
Maya also gives her male characters compassion and the ability to show their emotions. Garrett is powerful yet vulnerable which makes me admire him all the more.
“Hidden Away” is full of drama, mystery and romance. A great addition to the KGI Series. Hope you get a chance to read the book and/or listen to the audiobook. Happy reading.
I got my copy from One Click Digital provided by Hennepin County Library. It is also available via these links:

Recommend – “Forged in Steele: A KGI Novel, Book 7” audiobook by Maya Banks
Why did it take me so long to find you, Maya Banks? Your audiobook, “Forged in Steele: A KGI Novel, Book 7,” is full of adventure, thrills, nasty villains and love.
Paul Adam’s (audiobook narrator) voice is perfect for how I’d imagine Steele – forceful. The tonal quality was like sandpaper on wood – slowly grinding undesirables to dust. Thank you Paul for an excellent job bringing all the characters to life.
This story rocks from the 1st words to the last – once you start listening you can’t stop. The women in this book are spectacular – strong, intelligent and professional. Thanks so much for letting these characters express themselves, Maya – wow.
The plot is fantastic too – didn’t know until the end how everything would play out. The scenes are so vivid I can almost feel the heat (not an easy feat when yesterday it was -13 below zero without a wind chill in Minnesota). The clinic, where Dr. Maren works came to life for me, the place and the people she serves.
Dialog is inspiring to me as a struggling writer – smooth transitions throughout. Maya Banks writing moves me – to tears, laughter and frustration when Steele isn’t getting it:) or a bad guy is just to dictatorial to take.
I now have several of Maya’s books to catch up on but as all you authors mentioned at Nora Roberts book signing webcam on February 15th (brave to make it Turn the Page Bookstore, ttpbooks.com, in the snow and ice) – that’s ok – I can do a Maya Banks marathon – keep on writing. Maya you are a gifted story teller.
