I had a feeling I would like The Survivors by T.C. Weber but… I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!
If post-apocalyptic horror is a genre you love, you’re missing out if you pass on The Survivors. Climate change has made the planet nearly inhabitable. I found the commentary on climate change very realistic and that makes this story even more unerving for me. The idea that if things don’t change, and keep heading in the direction it is, this seems a realistic future. Terrifying, honestly! And a testament to brilliant writing.
At the heart of this story is Lucy and her children who are part of a small group trying to survive. She is a relatable character and watching her struggles made me wonder how I would react in this situation (probably not well).
Overall, this is a fantastic read. Horror at its finest with a realistic nature that made it even scarier. Highly recommended.

A churning wall of water speeds toward us, many times higher than any waves I’ve seen before. Knees shaking, I grip my daughter and infant and back away.
Angelica grips her talisman and challenges the approaching waves. “Por favor, deténganse, Espíritus! Los adoraremos mejor!”
The tower shudders and shakes. Spray slaps up the windows, like the water’s trying to pull us down.
The window in front of Angelica cracks, jagged lines marching across its surface. It shatters inward. Shards of glass fly into the room, along with howling wind and spray strong enough to knock everyone off their feet—even Thal. Lengths of grass tear away from my woven vest and skirt.
Angelica screams, a high-pitched shriek that sounds like an animal being ripped apart.
