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.

Melissa Marr is the author of the bestselling Wicked Lovely series as well as the adult fantasy novelsGraveminderandThe Arrivals. When not writing, editing, or traveling, Melissa is buried under a plethora of books, dogs, and children in Virginia or online at

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Steampunk gets...Slow I finished this book a few weeks ago. It's definitely a fun premise: a bunch of people from different time periods are put into a different dimension/world. Sci-fi element with crinoline-wearing, gun-toting women and hot cowboy men. But not a lot happened, and the characters were fairly cookie-cutter. Trust me, you've seen this characters in other books before. At the same time, it is a fun read if you're looking for something light and a little different. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good This was a good light read. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Melissa Marr's other books but it was still a solid book with interesting characters and a unique world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and Easy Read The story is original and the characters are fun. It's a fun and easy read for someone who is not looking for a particularly deep story. I really enjoyed the storyline and would read a sequel happily. The strange world that the characters live in is very interesting and refreshing. I think the author could write more stories in this world and they would be entertaining as well.
