Scorching the Earth (KTS #4) by Elise Faber

She was broken.

I wanted to be the one to heal her.

Only it wasn’t that simple.

She was my superior. I was her second in command. Work got in the way, so remaining friends was smarter, especially for a woman like me who fell hard and often. But I couldn’t get Hannah out of my head.

In fact . . . I loved her more than my next breath.

But her heart was locked down in a way that no one would ever get close enough to win it.

Especially now. We worked for KTS, an elite military group whose ranks were dangerously close to breaking. There were traitors in our midst, enemies behind trusted faces.

I had Hannah’s back through all of it. I wouldn’t fail her.

Not even when our mission seemed destined to put us in danger, to rattle the very foundations of everything we worked for.

4 out of 5 (very good)

SCORCHING THE EARTH finished the KTS series, and it only seems fitting that we finish with Hannah and Lily. Hannah is team leader and Lily is her second-in-command. Both of them are forces to deal with but can they deal with each other?

This story is told from both perspectives which is a good thing. You have to stay on your toes but, for me, it helped to enhance the story. Lily and Hannah's voices are very different, which is no surprise being as they have very different personalities. You find out more about their pasts and their presents, and hopes for the future. Some of the others obviously show up (on the same team) but this really is Hannah and Lily's story.

It brought to a satisfying conclusion the overall story arc, including who the mole was. I won't say anymore on that as I don't want to spoil anything.

This was a great read and a brilliant finale to a wonderful series. I have loved each book and have no hesitation in recommending both this book and the series. Just, please, make sure you read them in order so you know what's going on!
