About the Book

The Arrivals is the second novel for adults by internationally bestselling author Melissa Marr.
 

Chloe walks into a bar and blows five years of sobriety. When she wakes, she finds herself in an unfamiliar world, The Wasteland. She discovers people from all times and places have also arrived there: Kitty and Jack, a brother and sister from the Wild West; Edgar, a prohibition bootlegger; Francis, a one-time hippie; Melody, a mentally unbalanced 1950s housewife; and Hector, a former carnival artist.
 


None know why they arrived there—or if there is way out of a world populated by monsters and filled with corruption.
 


Just as she did in Graveminder, Marr has created a vivid fantasy world that will enthrall. Melissa Marr’s The Arrivals is a thoroughly original and wildly imagined tale about making choices in a life where death is unpredictable and often temporary.

The book includes a P.S. section with extra material from the author and a bonus story exclusive to this paperback edition.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Original and quirky, it’s a fun summer read.” - Washington Post

“Marr imbues [The Wasteland] with an unconventional spirit that makes everyone—displaced humans, demons, deluded villain, scary critters (some bound to their own elaborate codes of ethics), and frustrated locals—vivid and surprising.” - Locus

“THE ARRIVALS is wicked, weird, and fun; Marr’s imaginary world feels vividly, almost unsettlingly, real.” - Ben H. Winters, author of The Last Policeman

“You’ll want to definitely saddle up for this one.” - USA Today
