Survive the Cursed is book one in the These Cursed Origins series by Ashton Abbott. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia where humanity is on the brink of extinction, and witches, zombies, vampires, and werewolves roam the lands looking to wipe out the last vestiges of humanity. Avery Winters is a twenty-one-year-old soldier groomed and trained since childhood to kill monsters. Her father, Dr. Winters, is the head scientist at one of the last settlements of humans at Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida panhandle. Having lost many friends in reconnaissance missions, Avery begins to question her father's motivations after encountering his latest subject, a mysterious vampire named Mattias, who is unlike any other monster Avery has encountered. With her conflicted feelings and newfound abilities, Avery must now choose where her true loyalties lie.
Action, horror, and romance seep through the pages of Ashton Abbott's first installment of this post-apocalyptic supernatural thriller series. Survive the Cursed is a fast-paced nail-biter of a story that will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish. Abbott captures the setting of a hypothetical futuristic dystopian world spectacularly, infusing supernatural elements into it to make it all the more unsettling and terrifying for us. The story is told in a first-person narrative style through the eyes of the main protagonist, Avery Winters, who faces the dilemma of having to choose between her friends and family and her conscience. I enjoyed it, and if you're a fan of supernatural romance thrillers, I urge you to grab a copy.
