Book Review for The Line Between by Tosca Lee
The Line Between: A Thriller (1) by Tosca Lee
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).
The Line Between: A Thriller by Tosca Lee is an exciting, gripping thriller you won’t be able to put down! Tosca Lee has now been firmly added to my must-read list, and this book sits with pride on my bookshelf.
What a character Wynter Roth is: young, brave, loyal and determined. I was mesmerized by the dramatic events that came her way. Outwardly, submissive and accepting of the cult’s rules, yet inwardly wondering what freedom might be like. If she could disappear with Jaclyn and her niece Truly, she’d risk crossing that line and would escape ‘New Earth’ taking her chances amongst sinners. Her sister won’t leave now because she’s married, so Wynter keeps her thoughts to herself and determines to stay and be content, so long as she can spend time with Truly.
Things don’t go smoothly, and someone’s plotted against her. Now her dream of a free life has turned into a nightmare, as she’s thrown out of her home, passed through the security gates and into a world she doesn’t know. She’s crossed over. One and a half feet, the distance of a step, that line between Heaven and hell, or a single leap of faith. A face from the past, her mum’s friend Julie, turns up like a guardian angel to whisk Wynter to her home, offering Wynter a life she’s suddenly not sure she wants. If this wasn’t dramatic enough, something is going on; something that scares Wynter to death as she begins to dread ‘the end’ has come. People are getting ill and going crazy. Slowly, a virus is oozing its way across America. Fear levels rise. Survival mentality kicks in and all hell breaks out.
The plot thickens when Jaclyn turns up in the middle of the night, carrying an extremely valuable secret. The race is on. Wynter ignores danger and sets off on a mission of vital importance, heading into a world she doesn’t know at a time when panic is spreading. Will she make it in time? Will she make it at all? And who is Chase – and can she trust him?
Lots of research make this story extremely frightening and a real possibility. Life is stranger than fiction, they say, and actual events are the inspiration behind this fabulous piece of fiction. Enthralling, smart, page-turning and unforgettable! With incredible well-developed characters and an electrifying storyline, The Line Between is a thriller that grips you to the pages and keeps you wanting more.
