The Line

In a broken and treacherous society, necessity breeds criminals but only insanity spawns heroes.

By KJ Southworth

The City—the last bastion on a distant desert planet.

Daryl is released from the brutal confines of the Prison. Broken and suicidal, the ex-convict tries to disappear into the restrictive caste system.

Lyons Emmett is the ruthless head of Madman, the most powerful organization in the Criminal underworld. He is fixated on ruling the City and exterminates anyone he perceives as a threat.

Ripping Daryl from obscurity, Lyons corners the former thief into a perilous mission. He isn’t above sending his fearsome enforcer, Jace Locket, to emphasize what will happen should Daryl refuse. To escape these callous machinations, Daryl turns to an unlikely group of assassins, freaks, inventors and outcasts. But in the City, there are precious few people anyone can trust.

The new thriller by debut author K.J. Southworth uses fast-paced action to explore an immersive world full of unique characters.

KJ Southworth

KJ Southworth loves adventure, amigurimi and warm drinks on chilly days. After years of odd jobs and self-directed learning, she discovered her passion for history, earning a degree at the University of Alberta. She and her goofy husband adore their mischievous daughter, and share a comfortable home with her in Southern Ontario.

The Line is Southworth’s first science-fiction novel and has been described as ‘a shot of adrenaline’ and ‘an excellent read for anyone ready to be sucked into a world so well built, you’ll think you’re there.’

A tale of violence, vengeance, and redemption. Debut novelist, KJ Southworth builds an immersive world, full of colourful castaways strewn across the desert of the City in makeshift societies like a futuristic Western where Daryl walks a well-trodden path from outlaw to saviour.
