A novel by

 
 
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.

Praise for this book

"The perfect blend of spellbinding and heart stopping, The Line Between is an absolute must-read. Tosca whips up a thriller that is emotionally wrenching yet utterly believable, the kind of story that is sure to leave readers breathless and begging for more." - Nicole Baart

"An edge-of-your-seat, nonstop, apocalyptic rollercoaster of a thriller! As only she can, Tosca Lee pulls the reader in and refuses to let go until the final heart-pounding page!" - J D Barker

"Lee's terrifyingly realistic apocalypse unfolds in the equally harrowing shadow of the seductive, soul-swallowing cult Wynter Roth was raised in, the survival of the world now depending on the strength, bravery, and faith of a young woman who's only known deceit and betrayal from those she trusted. Smartly written, tautly paced, with an utterly irresistible protagonist, The Line Between is pure exhilaration on a page." - Emily Carpenter

"THE LINE BETWEEN by Tosca Lee had me captivated from page one! I've never read a book with a premise quite like this and I love apocalyptic fiction. OUTBREAK meets David Koresh in this fast-paced tale of a young woman cast out of a doomsday cult and thrown into a world ravaged by a mysterious epidemic. As always, Tosca Lee delivers more than I expect, this time with a perfect thread of romance expertly woven through the pages. I instantly fell in love with Chase and, as a true apocalypse fan, the survival skills he brought to this End-Of-The-World table made the story even more believable. And the puppy? Swoon! Pardon me while my heart melts! I give this book 5 stars and plan to keep it in my Bug Out Bag, along with my MREs, first aid kit and Swiss Army knife." - Merrie Destefano

"A tremendous thrill-ride that is sure to linger long after you turn the last page. With compelling and memorable characters, this is a true run-for-your-life, end-of-the-world, amazingly realistic tale full of twists and turns that will have your heart-pounding." - E C Diskin

"Shades of The Handmaid's Tale and The Walking Dead blend together in an epic novel of depth and power. Tosca Lee's The Line Between is a breathtaking story of a woman who rises above her own dark past to stop civilization from descending into madness. Brilliant." - K J Howe

"A true wordsmith, Tosca has crafted another page-turner, a nonstop thrill ride that will leave you breathless." - Steven James

"Tosca Lee's THE LINE BETWEEN is terrifyingly close to a future reality. An utterly immersive tale of apocalyptic cult manipulation and all-too-possible infectious epidemics, this story will have readers holding their breath on every page and dearly wishing for their own basement survivalist shelter. Perfect, chilling entertainment." - Lydia Kang

"The Line Between is a nail-biter featuring an unlikely heroine, brain-washed since childhood by a doomsday cult. The rigid, patriarchal sect leader is a charismatic faux prophet with heavy clay feet; he can save humanity--for a price--but is hell-bent on rescuing the few and damning the many. As a lethal virus spreads through the United States, the darkness of an increasingly apocalyptic world turns even darker. Lee's book is one horrific thriller fans will want to read. The conflicting urges rampant in the story resonate with our world today, making this both a great read as well as a cautionary tale." - Nancy Kilpatrick

"A fast-paced and deeply human story. Tosca Lee has put together a terrifying apocalyptic scenario, made all the more real through the eyes of a protagonist who comes to life on the page." - Patrick Lee
