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.
Packed with action.
This was an absolutely epic read …
It did take a little bit to grab my attention, but once it did, it just did not let go. It alternates between flashing back to the FMC’s past in a cult, and her present. She does an excellent job of making me believe how she fell for the cult’s teachings, but also stopped believing them at the same time. She’s depicted as a strong, free-thinking woman, so it works.
Her present is rocky, then disturbing and then just plain danger-filled as the world is literally ending around her and it’s up to her to change it. A completely wild ride, of which I loved every minute. This made hours disappear quickly—hours which were spent working out, cooking and cleaning, so I find that impressive.
Overall: excellent. Based on this, I will absolutely be reading more from this author.

I listened to the audiobook (thanks so much to my local library!!). The narration was great, well-performed.
I loved this book but had some issues. I wish there would have been more between Wynter and Chase the chemistry was there yet the author just stopped. Also the book just seems to leave us at the end wondering if Magnus and his crazy predictions of the world were right. We will never know because the book just ends. There could have been so much more done here that wasn’t. The author takes us on this wild doomsday ride but doesn’t follow through. We don’t know what even happens with Ashley does he make it? To many questions left unanswered.
