Melissa Marr

  Faery Tales & Nightmares


The Arrivals

Dangerous promises and beguiling threats swirl together in a dozen stories of enchantments dark and light by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Uncanny and unexpected creatures appear from behind bushes, rise from beneath the seas, or manifest from seasonal storms to pursue the objects of their attention—with amorous or sinister intent—relentlessly.

From the gentle tones of a storyteller’s cadences to the terror of a blood sacrifice, tales of favorite characters from Marr’s Wicked Lovely novels mix with accounts of new characters for readers to fall in love with...or to fear.

Lush, seductive, and chilling, Melissa Marr’s stories revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it.

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.

    Nefertiti, how cool would that be :-).

  1. Isabel C said...:

    I would love to meet Cleopatra. She was a woman before her time that lived in a very advanced country. History is written by the winners, in her case, Rome. I would love to see her side of what occurred in her life. She strikes me as an amazing female figure that does not give in. She did hold off Rome for 20 years after all...

  1. I'd love to meet Jane Austen to see what her life was really like. There are so many rumors about whether she almost married, why she died, etc. I'd love to know the truth!

  1. Jillyn said...:

    Shakespeare. I'd love to pick his brain.

  1. Princess Diana! She was such an amazing person!

  1. I would like to meet Shostakovich, the Russian composer :)
    I really admire not only his music, but also his audacity

  1. Freud... he'd be an interesting person to talk to.

  1. I'd want to meet Gilgamesh, though he may not be real and if he was, we probably wouldn't have very much in common...

  1. Past: Anne Boleyn, Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc
    Current: Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Tim Tebow

  1. Tammy said...:

    Sir Issac Newton, we're distant relatives according to my dad.

  1. bn100 said...:

    Ben Franklin to see his inventions

  1. Chelsea B. said...:

    Jane Austen-- I would ask what she thinks about everyone adoring her! :-)

  1. Jen Haile said...:

    I'd love to meet Leonardo Da Vinci and just observe his genius in real time.

  1. meryvamp said...:

    Past: Elizabeth Bathory, the blood countess. I believe she holds the record for a woman serial killer, killing somewhere in the hundreds. I find her disturbingly fascinating.

    Present: Heath Ledger. There are a lot of actors whose lives were cut short, but Heath had such a wonderful smile and he was a truly gifted actor.

  1. Brooke said...:

    Joseph Smith, Jr.

  1. Veronica Vasquez said...:

    Kelly Monaco

  1. Meghan said...:

    I would want to meet either Elvis Presley or Alexander Skarsgard.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    If we're talking authors, I'd want to meet Mary Shelley and thank her for writing one of my favorite pieces of classic literature.

    And if we're talking historical figures/actors/singers/etc... Rod Serling. I've met Carol Serling and that was incredible, but I'd love to pick Rod's brain, and discuss his incredible imagination with him. His twisted Twilight Zone endings are just.. brilliant!

  1. Steph said...:

    I would want to meet Edgar Allan Poe because he's my favorite classic author and his work sparked my love of Gothic and supernatural literature! Thanks for another awesome giveaway!

  1. Brynna said...:

    I never have a good answer for this. Maybe Jesus, cause hey... wouldn't that just be awesome?

  1. Ooh, that's a tough one to answer!! I *think* my top choice would be Queen Elizabeth. I can never seem to read enough books about her (well, mostly historical fiction, but still...), and she is pretty much endlessly fascinating to me. I cannot imagine how she managed to overcome the whole "being a woman" thing...cause you know, that was quite a liability back then for 99% of women!!

  1. Mhh. I would say Jane Austen because I love her books. I would also like to meet Max Irons because he is one of my favorite actors.

  1. I would want to meet Chaucer, especially since I recently found out he is in my family tree :-) Thanks for the giveaway!

  1. I would love to go back to Ancient Egypt! I would so LOVE to meet Cleopatra and Julius Caesar. And I would want to find out about all the mysteries involving the pyramids and other mysterious things that happened back then. It would definitely be an adventure!! Thank you so much for this AWESOME giveaway!!!

  1. Vivien said...:

    I would seriously love to meet J.K. Rowling at any time. Harry Potter is a huge part of my life. It would be an amazing opportunity. Plus, the Casual Vacancy is awesome too :)

  1. Interesting book! WOuld love to read it :)

  1. Rachel said...:

    I would love to meet Poe or Audrey Hepburn!
