Description

In this frighteningly believable thriller from New York Times bestselling author and master storyteller Tosca Lee, an extinct disease re-emerges from the melting Alaskan permafrost and causes madness in its victims. For recent apocalyptic cult escapee Wynter Roth, it's the end she'd always been told was coming.

When Wynter Roth finally escapes from New Earth, a self-contained doomsday cult on the American prairie, she emerges into a world poised on the brink of madness as a mysterious outbreak of rapid early onset dementia spreads across the nation.

As Wynter struggles to start over in a world she's been taught to regard as evil, she finds herself face-to-face with the apocalypse she's feared all her life--until the night her sister shows up at her doorstep with a set of medical samples. That night, Wynter learns there's something far more sinister at play: that the prophet they once idolized has been toying with the fate of mankind, and that these samples are key to understanding the disease.

Now, as the power grid fails and the nation descends into chaos, Wynter must find a way to get the samples to a lab in Colorado. Uncertain who to trust, she takes up with former military man Chase Miller, who has his own reasons for wanting to get close to the samples in her possession, and to Wynter, herself.

Filled with action, conspiracy, romance, and questions of whom--and what--to believe, The Line Between is a high-octane story of survival and love in a world on the brink of madness, from "the queen of psychological twists" (New York Times bestselling author Steena Holmes).

Like Lucifer before her, Wynter Roth is about to be kicked out of Paradise. Unlike the devil, her sentence is not one handed down by God, but by his Interpreter, Magnus. And Paradise isn’t really Paradise, but this outpost of it called New Earth. Fifteen years, Wynter has spent behind its walls. Only recently had the cracks begun to form. Only recently had she seen New Earth for what it really was. She was excommunicated, yes, but she was free. In The Line Between, Tosca Lee balances between worlds. In the present, Wynter is free from New Earth, living with a family friend, trying to determine how to live in this sinful world after a lifetime in the cult. But it isn’t that easy. Magnus has always taught that the end of the world was near and, now living in the world, Wynter finds that difficult to dispute. Wars, natural disasters, sickness—they’re everywhere and ravaging. Particularly this one growing disease that causes rapid-onset dementia. In the past, we see Wynter’s life at the compound. Lee paints a vivid picture of Magnus’s control over the facility, led by the Guardians and Elders. New Earth preaches a strict asceticism. No worldly things. Not clothes. Not entertainment. And no technology. As Wynter grows older, she begins to see some cracks in the system. Not everything is as it seems. And that’s eventually what leads to her excommunication. As the disease grows, the world begins to panic. Wynter discovers that there may be a connection between her past and the present pandemic. This sets her off on a journey to find the truth, and perhaps even save the world. The line between the two storylines is rather tenuous. It’s rather fortuitous—not exactly contrived, but not exactly the next logical step—circumstances that drive the second half of the novel. I also wish Tosca had spent more time on developing the present storyline. The plague popped up as more serious way before I was expecting it. (Maybe I was just too engrossed in the past storyline to notice.) The world seemed to go from meh to panic nearly overnight. If I had to guess, there are some chapters on the cutting room floor that would satisfy what I felt was missing.

Tosca Lee has done it again. Cults, contagion, conspiracy, and the end of the world... my heart is still racing and my mind is still spinning hours after finishing. I received a digital ARC of The Line Between from the publisher, and I am thrilled to say I honestly could not put it down until I finished. (Except to watch Jeopardy and [reluctantly] sleep.) Warning: there is no "just one more chapter" once you start this book.

I am a huge Tosca Lee fan. This book transported me to Nebraska along with Wynter Roth and took me along for the ride. It’s thrilling it’s full of action and moments to make you hold your breath. From the first word to the very last you’ll love this book.

I have really come to enjoy Tosca Lee’s novels, and this one is definitely another excellent one! She writes stories that make you want to go research her topics; they draw you in and you want to know more about not just the characters but also about the ideas presented in the books. Maybe it’s history, as it was for me in Progeny, or maybe it’s disease as it is in The Line Between. It’s fast-paced and a little twisted and the characters in The Line Between are complex and real, and you are rooting for truth and justice to win! I couldn’t put it down!

"But these are no longer just samples of some disease. They were purchased with lives to save many more. Lives precious to me." This is the first book by Tosca Lee that I have read and I am floored. What a chilling and totally believable thriller! The story is incredibly well-written with a credible plot that has many twists and turns, clever and witty dialogue, and unforgettable characters. The story is told by Wynter as a first person narrative, going back and forth from her past in a cult preparing for the end times using the past tense to her present situation as an outcast using the present tense. Wynter is a straight-forward, funny, determined, loyal sweetheart who suffers from anxiety and OCD which may have been triggered by her abrupt entrance into the world when she gets thrown out from the Enclave (the cult which she had been a part of for more than half her life). As the world crumbles quickly into madness due to an unknown disease, Wynter must gather her courage and wits to figure out how to get the information that she has into the hands of those who can and will help. Chase enters the story relatively late and offers the strong support and logical thinking that Wynter needs to balance out her actions fueled by emotion. It's a gripping tale that you will not be able to put down until the very last page. If you enjoy thrillers, this fascinating book is a must-read! I was given a copy of this book by the author and Howard Books via NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

Riveting, face paced, suspence and a touch of romance. Truly couldn't put this book down! This author has reached into the depths of emotions upon leaving a cult, and the dystopian type world we would live in if there was chaos. Won't regret this purchase!

A thrill ride of a story. Adventure, love, loss, deceit, a cult, a possibly humanity ending disease, car chases, fights, loyalty, determination and fierce bravery. Oh. And bacon. What more could you want from a book to escape into? The story feels eerily real. The characters are beautifully written and so easy to fall in love or hate with. I didn’t want to leave them. I didn’t want to close that last page. I eagerly await the sequel to this riveting story.
