Arrivals are from our world. I still don;t know what the battle ws about or what the whole scene was about. The villain- he's nuts, but beyond that who is he and what does he want? There isn't much of it out there, bu This review first appeared on The Arrivals is a fantasy western. But when it's poorly done it just leaves the reader stranded in this world where the rules are different and things are thrown at them without there being any hope of them figuring out how to manage any of it. Какой то интриги в книге тоже нет. The plot was extremely vague and distant all the way through the book. So when Chloe does arrive and hears this tidbit, she realizes she's with a band of murderers.
Two books in a row that I really didn;t care for. Кто плохой парень ясно и понятно с самого начала. The part I hated about it was the ending. And it was definitely a bit odd. The characters were definitely engaging and intriguing, but I felt like it was more focused on Jack, Kitty and Edgar, along with Chloe while the others were just sort of there and played a few roles into the story. Except, of course, when that person comes back to life, which is what happens some of the time.
I suppose once I reach the end that particular query will be answered by how many strings are tied neatly and how many are left laying frazzled around the story. But, I can say that it is still a The Arrivals are people who are brought to the Wasteland-- a world full of creepy monsters, cynanthropes werewolves and bloedzuigers blood suckers. Where she fell asleep in the year 2013, she finds herself in something that can be only compared to the old west of American history. The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included. The Arrivals is the second novel for adults by internationally bestselling author Melissa Marr.
So, overall, a good read. What do the demons do, exactly? Die Geschwister Jack und Kitty leben in Wasteland und das schon seit einer Weile. They fight monsters and try and help the Wastelanders with whatever they can solve with pistols or knives and the like. What a perfectly unique idea. But then how did it go from only Jack and Kitty to all the many arrivals? But the regular humans, we get nothing. The variety of characters in this book is really interesting but they mesh together.
Chloe is a new arrival. None of these characters stand out for me. None know why they arrived there—or if there is way out of a world populated by monsters and filled with corruption. Basically a steam punk western, extremely slow and boring, I found myself day dreaming through it and having to reread what I just read over and over again. 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. This was not very good. Which, in fact, is not true at all.
Information about The Wasteland is just kind of dropped in our lap, without a lot of context or any explanation. It's a strange world full of various forms of not-quite-humans. I'm not one for western settings, but surprisingly I did enjoy this one in particular. I'm so glad I did! For some reason she has some sort of abilities that she got from her, but it's never quite clear on what they are. But they find the final battle they face holds no easy answers.
I have to say, I liked this story overall even though there were some confusing moments in the story and some questions that remained unanswered in the end. I would also say that I would not say not to a potential sequel to this story. I'm so glad I did! The Arrivals was the second kind. If the exchange rate is 1:1, this makes no sense. They said it's a complete waste of time.
When she wakes, she finds herself in an unfamiliar world, The Wasteland. That made the most sense to me. The Arrivals reminds me of Perdition where people are sent who have committed crimes like killing people and are sent there in order to find redemption in order to move on to Heaven or Hell. What this novel offers, though, is a story of adventure about an unusual but fascinating group of people, and what they mean to each other. Sie wissen leider überhaupt nicht warum sie hier sind, geschweigenden wie sie hier hingekommen sind. Chloe walks into a bar, blowing 5 years of sobriety and the next thing she knows she finds herself waking up in a completely unfamiliar world.
Chloe Mattison goes to sleep, drunk and heartbroken, in Washington, D. Now, in addition to a pounding headache and weak limbs, she's got the guilt of five years sobriety down the drain. I particularly liked the addition of the bloedzuigers and how their motivations and personalities came into play. I seriously could not get enough!!!! Into this alternate world unwitting people are brought, from both past and present, for reasons none of them know. Chloe walks into a bar and blows five years of sobriety. There's definitely lots of tension between the two, as Edgar still loves Kitty and lets her know that daily. Из плюсов отмечу красивую обложку русского печатного издания, в жизни очень классно смотрится, внутри текст красиво украшен, бумажка хотя и серенькая, но плотная.
