I saw this recommended and as its the first in a series plus as I type free on Amazon I couldn't wait to get stuck in. War is truly vile but worse are the horrors we do to each other. The characters here are home building lives but the horrors they faced haunt them and have changed them irrevocably.
Once Kit was known as Summer but cold reality meant to survive she has rebuilt herself. No longer care free and believing that life is good Kit cannot even bring herself to love Lee the man she left

I have to start with the gorgeous cover of this book first and foremost. Sometimes the most simplestated covers are the ones that stand out the most. The contrast of the bright purple flower against the black background grabbed my attention, along with the title, and had me hooked into buying this book without even knowing what it was about. I am glad that I went in blind and was treated to a new and delicious new treat. Not only was T. Birmingham a new author, so I have a new author to add to m ...more

A Terrible Beauty is the first book in T, Birmingham’s Fallen Eagles MC series that leaves you breathless and teary eyed and waiting for the next story in the series! I have already read the second book and I guess one could say you could read them as standalones but I disagree … you would lose so so much by ignoring the order. It is not my first read by this writer but I was very surprised when I realized that it is a completely different genre that I had expected and I promise you, it was a gr ...more

A Terrible Beauty was a good 4 star read and book one in the Fallen Eagles MC series.

We skip from past to present in some scenes as Kit remembers things. Kit chose to serve her country ten years ago, something terrible happened that caused her to come home a different person.She was no longer Summer she was Kit, she also pushed away the one man that had her heart, Lee. She is now a highly respected member of the Fallen Eagles MC.

Lee also served in the war and had his own issues here and there.

Not my first read by this author, I knew going in that I was in for a well written, detail hooking read, that would capture me until the very last page. And you know what, that's exactly what I got!

Strong multi layered characters mixed with an equally strong plot, I can honestly say I was engrossed into this story. And I have to add, this is coming from someone who isn't a big MC reader. This book,

So not what I thought it was going to be. But I am not disappointed at all! A Terrible Beauty is the first book in the Fallen Eagle Series by T. Birmingham. Typical MC series are men only clubs. This one has both men and women, which I was happily surprised. All of the club members are former military and some have even served together. Summer “Kit” was captured and held for 30 hours along with Hammond. What happened during that time was a horror no one wants to ever happen. That happened 10 yea ...more

The first book I have read by T. Birmingham. Reading about this one really interested me. I was proven right. This book was amazing. I loved that not only is it written amazingly but it is about Veterans trying to start over. This one is about Kit(Summer). She goes through so much while she is serving. She is now home trying to deal with it all one day at a time.

A Terrible Beauty is the first book in T. Birmingham's Fallen Eagles MC Series. It is listed as a novella but it didn't feel that way to me when I was reading it. It has a lot of content, feeling, and background. The characters were well described, so you got a sense of who they were and their relationships with each other. It was well written, and I cannot wait to read the 2nd book in the series. I highly recommend it, but I do give caution to readers, there is some intense scenes involving sex ...more

A Terrible Beauty (Fallen Eagles MC Book 1) by T. Birmingham is a second chance romance that is not pretty and not your normal MC story, it is a story of a MC that is a family of veterans. It is a story of the horrors of war that has affected the lives of so many. It shows how vile some people can be.

Whilst no longer part of the war but still a victim, Kit is broken and is forced to finally face her past face to face. A past that has haunted her for years. A past that has destroyed lives.

A Terrible Beauty by T. Birmingham is the first book in the Fallen Eagles MC series. This book is not a lighthearted book and the warnings are fairly accurate. However this book is also entirely worth the dark path it takes you down.
This story is designed to utterly suck you body and soul into this story. You can clearly see the vivid pictures the author paints with their words. Kit is haunted by the work she once loved, the country she used to serve. And when that past comes face to face with h

A Terrible Beauty is the first book in the Fallen Eagles MC series by T. Birmingham. This is a novella length book, with a wounded warrior/MC romance. There is quite a lot happening in a small space, but Ms. Birmingham handles it all beautifully. It feels like a much longer book, without feeling rushed or lacking in parts. It has quite a complex storyline which has been cleverly crafted into a very engaging and captivating story.
The story has emotion, drama, some suspense, and romance. Th

A Terrible Beauty is book one in the Fallen Eagles MC Series by T. Birmingham. It is one of the best Suspense, Military Romance stories I have read in a long time. It was also incredibly heartbreaking, yet it inspired me too. My heart ached and at the same time, I witnessed a love resurrected, which was stunning.

A Terrible Beauty by T. Birmingham is the first book in the Fallen Eagles MC series. I was intrigued by this book after reading the synopsis. You don't see a lot of MC's with women as members but the Fallen Eagles has female members and not just to sit and look pretty which I really liked. I also liked that they are Veterans or at least the characters we have got to know in this book.

Kit isn't the girl she used to be before her deployment. She saw some horrific things and experienced some major

“The beauty was that war often revealed the perseverance of the human spirit.”

This incredibly phenomenal book has left me feeling all kinds of emotions. As I sit here writing my review, I feel like I’m at a loss as to what to write, how do you properly describe a book that captures you and holds you captive until the end. A story that fills you with all kinds of emotions, from sadness, anger, hurt, shock, sympathy, disbelief etc. and makes you feel as if y

T. Birmingham took sensitive subject matters and created a wonderful book series, Fallen Eagles MC Series. Book 1 is A Terrible Beauty which is a novella and a great opening to say the least. The way Birmingham brought the characters to life on the page is outstanding. I felt like I was there watching everything transpire. I will have to say that there are some adult subject matters and I would recommend this story to be for older teens (16 & 17) and adults. This story is a suspense and mili ...more

There were quite a few characters in the Novella. There’s the Markham sisters who are Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Summer went to war and experienced something tragic. She came home and her new name is Kit. She doesn’t let anyone call her Sum

What a wonderfully written story about the horrors of war that follow the soldiers home and haunt them for years after their service is over. The story and the characters are beautiful souls that seem to have lost their way. A strange turn of events forces Kit to face the events that scarred her deeply and she finally lets herself love again. Lee, her teenage love, stays by her side and is willing to give anything and everything to bring back at least part of the girl he once knew. I was extreme ...more

If you’re looking for a new MC series to start, I highly recommend this gritty read. Kit was called Summer before she was captured with three of her fellow soldiers. Wait until you find out how she decided on the name Kit. Kit and Lee are soulmates, but her ordeal from the war has made her put up walls. Can she ever get over the guilt and let him back in? Will he even want to when he finds out what happened? I can’t tell you how happy I am that this is going to be a series. Kit is in Fallen Eagl ...more

This is Book 1 in the Fallen Eagles Book. I’ve always heard that soldiers who go to war come back different people. This book is a prime example of what a soldier goes through once they get back home. Kit comes home and Lee, who also has his war problems, wants his second chance with Kit. Now there’s a lot of emotion to get through in this book but it’s so beautifully done that you just want to crawl inside and help Kit and her friends through all the things they are going through.

Man I’m stunned. This author had me rethinking life on some levels. I felt Kit's pain like it was my own. I'm confused on how she survived or lived with the guilt and pain. Then the other characters roles. Man the author had me emotional. I love a great MC book and this one is at the top. I'm still not sure if I read what I read lol.

I've read (and love) this author's "Wild Beast" series and was not sure what to expect in an MC series. It was great.

This is a great introduction to a new series and I'm completely invested in it already. The world building is spot on, secondary characters are intriguing, set up to events in past and present tense is brilliant and overall a great story.

This is a shorter book than I thought it would be yet the ending is not rushed. One of the things I loved about this story, is the equality among

T. believes words are our greatest form of magic. And making magic is what she loves best. But when it's time to put the words aside, T. enjoys drinking whiskey with her tribe, eating pretzels with Nutella, watching and reading as many stories as she can, especially romances, and traveling wherever the wind takes her–sometimes all at once. She also loves a sturdy (but cute) pair of cowgirl boots, ...more
