Vengeance. Retribution. Powerful words, right? And perfect words for describing the actions the surviving Valkyries are planning to exact on those who’ve injured them. Most especially the one known as the “Architect.”
And vengeance is just what Kiyomi Tanaka is after in Beautiful Vengeance—to make those people pay for taking her choices, her chance at a “normal” life. She’ll do anything to keep the fami ...more
Action packed and steamy conclusion to this series. We met the Valkyries when they were hunted after each other their stories. It's the culmination of everything, plus this is Kiyomi's story. After all the ache and torture she experience even while training she gets her freedom also vengeance. Usually revenge plots are not easy to like but here I get it they've been put through so much, lied to and deceived.
Marcus has always been the safe house for them since the start and there was so ...more
Review copy was received from Publicity team. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This series, Vengeance has an overall story of finding all the Valkyries who have been burned and keeping them from being killed, bringing them into the team. There is also the goal of finding out who is hunting them to extinction, a mole in the covert ops family.
The final book, Beautiful Vengeance is a fitting finale to t
The final Valkyries book is here and I admittedly took my time reading it, as I really never wanted this series to end❣️It’s full of bad@ss women with skills galore and the men that have their backs😱 I especially loved this story as it was for Marcus and Kiyomi and both have had difficult pasts, both feel they are broken in someway but still find the ability to find something worthy in each other and before they know it, feelings are involved as well😍
I hope at some point w ...more
I've read all of this series to date, despite not knowing that it was tied to a previous series. I've enjoyed them all, but I think this one is my favorite of the series.
Kiyomi and Marcus were characters that had gone thr ...more
Kiyomi is the Valkyrie who was trained to use her physical attributes against their enemies, and it worked to perfection until the last mission which forever changed her. She has always looked at men as a means to an end but the more time she spends with Marcus the more ...more
Kiyomi Tanaka who'd been introduced to us in COVERT VENGEANCE was the final piece that was missing to get to those that were hunting and killing the Valkyries pay for what they have done. For years she'd been playing a femme fatale now she was prepared to give up everything to get justice for her and her fellow Valkyries. Only this time around she had much more to lose than before.
She was going after those that harmed her and the women she'd come to know and love as her fami ...more

I had thought that the first book or maybe the last books in this series were my favorite but hold on, Kiyomi and Marcus simply blew me away. Always well crafted stories by Ms. Cros ...more
We got introduced to Kiyomi back in book two (Covert Vengeance) when Amber saved her from torture. Since then we've gotten sprinkles of her story and I have been waiting on bated breath for her and Marcus' story.
The final book in this amazing series was everything I wanted and more. It definitely had those moments where it seems like everything was coming together and then I'd see I had a large chunk of book left and was like "Oh shit what ...more
Both Kiyomi and Marcus have been through so much physically and emotionally. They have both lived through what they shouldn’t have survived. They understand one another and give each other strength even though they are both still healing. They are so in love and perfect for each other . . . except circumstances have it that thei ...more
Marcus Laidlaw has been key to the successes so far. The Valkyries have an ally in him and his home has been the perfect headquarters while they find each other and begin to unravel the mystery of who wants them all dead.
Kiyomi believes that the man who captured her holds the key to the identity of the Architect. She also thinks she needs to be the one to kill him in order to find pe ...more
the long-awaited final Valkerie story is here and it was seriously worth the wait but also a little bittersweet knowing it's the last in this awesome series.
I have loved each and every story Kaylea Cross has written and the Valkerie series was no different it is full of amazing kick-ass take no prisoner women and the guys they choose to spend the rest of their lives with... Once they finally realize they have a life to really live...
Kyomi and Marcus have been dancing around t ...more
And what a story it was, with a build up that includes the Valkyries and Marcus heading to Syria, forcing Marcus and Kiyomi to face their demons. Before a confrontation with the architect ensues, and all of this had me on the edge of my seat.
Not to mention there ...more
OMG! What a FANTASTIC story! This was a very emotional story for all of the women! It was especially hard on Kiyomi. Marcus has been a trooper for all of these women, opening his home to them to heal. Marcus started falling in love with Kiyomi the first time he saw her. It took Kiyomi a little longer to start falling in love. She didn't think she could but Marcus changed her mind. It was shocking and sad to find out who the Architect was - Amber and Megan's aunt. I definitely ...more
All but one, Kiyomi Tanaka, have found their soulmates. She’s a survivor.
Marcus Laidlaw, while in a prison worse than hell and sure to die, is saved by a Valkyrie.
When they are thrown together to hunt down the evil that surrounds them, and feelings are obvious, will th ...more
I’ve come to expect disappointment when the series gets to the 4th book or 5th book, Not in this case, each one is better than the last. Exciting plots that keep you involved to the very end. As always the excitement keeps you turning the pages. It’s an intriguing story-line with many twists, surprise ...more
I love Kaylea Cross's writing style, she can create tough women that can handle guns, fighting but at the same time they are sweet, have emotional fauts and suffered a lot. The characters speak for themselves an ...more
We also find out the identity of the Architect. The depravity of this person knows no bounds. This is a book that you will definitely want to read, but make sure you read this series ...more
“The end, 5 stars”
Can I just say that I am sad to see the end of the Valkyries? This series is what introduced me to Cross and I couldn’t be more thankful. Beautiful Vengeance is packed with action, growth, and heat. I loved Marcus and Kiyomi. Both damaged in their own ways who have to let all that go and embrace one another. Beautiful Vengeance made both of them look hard in the mirror and dang did it make you feel. If you take a chance on Beautiful Vengeance ...more
Phew that was a journey and a half! Honestly I had a hard time getting started with this book not because I didn't want to read it, I was desperate, BUT I didn't want the series to end. I laughed, sighed, gasped and ugly cried my way through this story. My heart with team Marcus, he so deserved to find his person as much as Kiyomi. Their journey and the rest of the Valkyries was a consuming, exciting, thrilling journey, never dull and will be seriously missed. Cannot wait for the n ...more
It was so good to see the rest of the Valkyries come together for the final mission which was Bam! 💣💥 The villain had it coming!
This will go down as 1 of the Top series! 💯 Female power, stunning action, intriguing plots & beautifully written characters! Kaylea Cross once again shines! 👏👌
