Grace Peterson has been on the run for a long time, hunted by people that want to exploit her because she has the power to heal any illness. Scared, injured and alone, she meets Rio, who has been sent by her sister to bring her back home safely. Rio is a member of the KGI, a top secret special forces group, that will do anything to protect Grace. But the KGI isn’t the only one looking for Grace and Rio will have to put his life on the line to protect her from the man who will do anything to control Grace’s special gift.
This is the first book that I have read of the KGI series from Maya Banks and I’m happy to say that I’m officially hooked. Rio and Grace were such a great couple in this book because they have both had their share of heartache and pain. Grace had so much strength and determination for a woman that had been through so much suffering at the hands of others just because of her healing abilities. Her will to fight and to find her purpose in life was amazing and I was extremely impressed with this character.
I loved Rio because he was so fiercely protective of Grace and she was a woman he barely knew. He was loyal to everyone that he cared about and he was the type of person that you would want on your side if there was trouble. He gave Grace a reason to live instead of just giving up and I thought that was admirable of him. This mission became something more for him and I loved watching his character develop during the course of this book.
Echoes at Dawn was an intriguing yet explosive novel that kept me on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed it so much that I went out and got the rest of the series from Maya Banks and I’m looking forward to familiarizing myself with the rest of the KGI family.
