THE LINE BETWEEN BY TOSCA LEE


THE LINE BETWEEN         
Tosca Lee

In this frighteningly believable thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee, an extinct disease re-emerges from the melting Alaskan permafrost to cause 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 is turned out of 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 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.


MY REVIEW:

THE LINE BETWEEN is one of Tosca Lee’s best efforts. Anyone familiar with her novels knows how poetic her writing can be. I discovered this several years ago when reading DEMON, which is still one of my all time favorite books. The first chapter of THE LINE BETWEEN showcases this God-given ability. It combines beauty and power in a way that grabs the reader by the throat and holds them captive until the very last word.

As children, Wynter Roth and her sister are taken to a private community their mother believes is akin to heaven on earth. But as Wynter gets older, she begins to see that there are dark and dangerous flaws in this so-called paradise. When she finally escapes, she discovers that the world outside of New Earth is facing extinction due to a plague that destroys the minds of those infected. Were the warnings issued by cult leader, Magnus Theisen, true? Was the only safe place on the planet inside the walls of New Earth?

When Wynter’s sister brings her something stolen from Magnus that could actually save the lives of millions of people, Wynter begins an almost impossible journey. There is one person she can trust who might be able to produce a vaccine that could stop the disease from spreading. But her way is fraught with danger. The world has gone crazy and more than once it looks as though she’ll never reach her destination.

Tosca Lee has written a novel that will truly keep you on the edge of your seat. I found myself yelling out loud more than once. And the research going into this story makes the premise even more frightening. Could this really happen? You will be thinking about this book long after you finish the last chapter.

I highly recommend THE LINE BETWEEN. Certainly the best novel I’ve read this year.
