The Line Between by Tosca Lee

My Thoughts

Wowza this was quite the unexpected gem of a pre-apocalyptic story!

This is not my usual reading genre, but boil boy this book sucked me in from the very first page! Tosca Lee thread together a remarkable story… an intense pre-apocalyptic story laced with a generous amount of thrills and romance… this is such a well written book that I think will appeal to a wide audience of readers!

Wynter grew up in the compound of the New Earth doomsday post apocalyptic cult… as she grew up she began to question things including the teachings of the leader of the cult Magnus… this leads to her eventually being cast out, only to find that the outside world is going a bit mad…. there is an epidemic sweeping the US the spreading of early onset dementia, and there appears to be no cure in sight…. when Wynter’s sister shows up at her door with a case filled with vials of a potential cure… Wynter soon finds herself on the road to Colorado with the possible fate of the world in her hands…..

Wynter was so smart and so strong and yet she had such a naïveté to her… she is one of those characters that will get under your skin and who you won’t soon forget, there was just something so beautiful and comforting about her inner strength… for some reason I never doubted that this girl who grew up extremely sheltered could manage to make it from Chicago to Colorado in dire circumstances…. admittedly though it was very fortunate that she ran across X military XMMA fighter Chase along the way… Chase was another strong smart character who definitely reassured me… The strength and charisma of these characters really set the tone for the story and I think that’s what I really was drawn to… I felt as though the thread running throughout the story was that of hope rather than doom… this book was uplifting rather than depressing, and that’s not something I often find in books of this genre… add in a plot that will keep you riveted and a sprinkling of romance… and you’ve got yourself one stellar story!

An addictive pre-apocalyptic thriller full of some pretty amazing characters and a generous peppering of hope! Absolutely recommend!

🎵🎵🎵 song running through my head! If you have read this book you will know why I chose this one, this was a song that ran through Wynter’s head…

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today

I don’t know what it is

Something’s wrong with our eyes

We’re seein’ things in a different way

And God knows it ain’t his

It sure ain’t no surprise

Livin’ on the edge

Livin’ on the edge

Livin’ on the edge

Livin’ on the edge

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today

The light bulb’s gettin dim

There’s meltdown in the sky

If you can judge a wise man

By the color of his skin

Then mister you’re a better man than I

Livin’ on the edge

You can’t help yourself from fallin’

Livin’ on the edge

You can’t help yourself at all

Livin’ on the edge

You can’t stop yourself from fallin’

Livin’ on the edge (everybody, everybody)

Tell me what you think about your situation

Complication, aggravation is getting to you

If chicken…

*** many thanks to Tosca Lee for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

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.

    • She really was, there was something about her that resonated with me, not sure what it is, because we have almost nothing in common!
