Today I have a review of A Single Light by Tosca Lee, available now from Howard Books/Atria Books.
Pictured above is the fun swag the author sent for A Single Light. It includes items pertinent to the book, like a creepy pic and some handwritten notes.
Tosca Lee is in her element with these dystopian thrillers. A Single Light is just as dynamic and exciting as The Line Between, and I can’t wait to tell you more about it!
Wynter and Chase have been living in the silo underground for over six months. When they exit the silo, no one is there to help them. Wynter needs antibiotics to help her friend Julie.
Wynter and Chase don’t give up easily, and they are on the hunt for medicine for Julie, while her life is left in the balance. While they thought the nation would be in recovery mode when they emerged, what they find is vastly different. Everyone is sick, and nothing is the same. It’s survival of the fittest, and Wynter and Chase don’t want to make it too far away from the safety of the silo.
Ok, this begs to be made into a movie. A Single Light is full of action and suspense. The tension begins on page one and ramps up and up. I love these types of survival stories, and I was on the edge of my seat wishing for everything to be ok.
Overall, A Single Light is just as exciting as I hoped it would be. It has a quick pace and the story is well-developed. I also enjoyed all the unexpected surprises I found because things took quite a turn from The Line Between. This is a must-read!
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
About the Book:
In this gripping sequel to The Line Between, which New York Times bestselling author Alex Kava calls “everything you want in a thriller,” cult escapee Wynter Roth and ex-soldier Chase Miller emerge from their bunker to find a country ravaged by disease, and Wynter is the only one who can save it.
Six months after vanishing into an underground silo with sixty others, Wynter and Chase emerge to find the area abandoned. There is no sign of Noah and the rest of the group that was supposed to greet them when they emerged—the same people Wynter was counting on to help her locate the IV antibiotics her gravely ill friend, Julie, needs in order to live.
As the clock ticks down on Julie’s life, Wynter and Chase embark on a desperate search for medicine and answers. But what they find is not a nation on the cusp of recovery thanks to the promising new vaccine Wynter herself had a hand in creating, but one decimated by disease. What happened while they were underground?
With food and water in limited supply and their own survival in question, Chase and Wynter must venture further and further from the silo. Aided by an enigmatic mute named Otto, they come face-to-face with a society radically changed by global pandemic, where communities scrabble to survive under rogue leaders and cities are war zones. As hope fades by the hour and Wynter learns the terrible truth of the last six months, she is called upon once again to help save the nation she no longer recognizes—a place so dark she’s no longer sure it can even survive.
Fast-paced and taut, A Single Light is a breathless thriller of nonstop suspense about the risks of living in a world outside the safe confines of our closely-held beliefs and the relationships and lives that inspire us.
