Cast out of a doomsday cult, protagonist Wynter Roth finds the outside world on the verge of a pandemic, with a deadly strain of dementia spreading uncontrollably among the population.
There’s no cure for the disease, but Wynter may possess the key to a vaccine.
Such is the setup for Christian-fiction writer Tosca Lee ’92’s The Line Between, which Library Journal calls a “perfectly crafted dystopian thriller [that] will keep readers up all night and have them begging for a sequel.” Lee granted that wish with A Single Light, which finds Wynter quarantined in an underground silo built by a prepper named, ahem, Noah. What will our heroine find when she leaves the bunker? Our lips, like the silo door, are sealed.
THE LINE BETWEEN and A SINGLE LIGHT
