Marr, creator of the best-selling, young adult Wicked Lovely fantasy series, ventures into dystopian fiction for grown-ups in this lassoing tale of survival and passion set in a desert beneath two moons. This is the Wasteland, where humans mysteriously appear. Each of the Arrivals is a killer. They do not age, they rarely die, and together they form a motley, moody band of frontier vigilantes. We meet a trigger-happy 1950s housewife, a gallant Prohibition bootlegger, and a hippie. They’re kept in line by smart and focused Jack and his spell-casting sister, Kitty, who arrived from America’s Wild West long ago. The heavily armed Arrivals fight off demons and dragonish beasts; break hearts; track their enigmatic enemy, the wealthy Ajani; and learn the ways of a twiggy, telepathic bloodsucker named Garuda. Then everything shifts when sexy Chloe arrives, fresh from a bar in 2010 Washington, D.C. Marr’s sociopaths, romantics, and heroes are flinty and endearing; the spooky creatures, gunfights, mind-melds, lust, and love are diverting; and every facet of this clever, fun tale is stoked by peppery social commentary. --Donna Seaman
“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)
