Pre Pub Book Buzz: The Arrivals by Melissa Marr

While I've yet to read the Wicked Lovely series, I have had the pleasure of reading Marr's debut adult release, Graveminder. I loved Graveminder. It was so fabulously excellent and I really wish that Marr would return to the world of that tale. So far, no go, but she does have a brand new adult release coming out soon. The Arrivals is set for release on July 2nd.

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

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.

Yep! Definitely on my "must have" list this year!
