Oh, Melissa Marr. I so adore your writing and your wild and crazy imagination. What will you come up with next? Wait. You already have, throwing your newest set of characters into a saddle-up-and-strap-on-your-sidearm world where death hovers in your peripheral vision, maw agape (see, she even has me writing all floofy and such. Too bad it wore off so quickly.).
Girl must have kicked some serious writing butt last year, considering she’s also got a new Wicked Lovely ebook coming out in December, and now has a new baby at home. Congratulations on your precious baby and on your sure-to-be-fabulous novels releasing this year! (Does this mean you’re not coming to BEA this year? *sad eyes*)
As for the cover, I’m not quite on board. I like the Old West feel with the title font and the armed shadows in the distance but the color is doing absolutely nothing for me. Still, it won’t stop me from reading it!
Chloe knew she shouldn’t have gone into the bar last night. Now, in addition to a pounding headache and weak limbs, she’s got the guilt of five years sobriety down the drain.
When she wakes, she’s not in the world she knows. She’s in The Wasteland, a world populated by monsters and unfamiliar landscapes, in the company of people just like her, pulled to the Wasteland out of time and place, for reasons no one knows or understands. Once there, though, their mission is clear: keep the peace, protect each other, and try not to die, because sometimes, after six days of death, you might not wake up.
But things are changing in the Wasteland. And for Jack and Kitty, brother and sister from a Wild West frontier town; Edgar, a Prohibition rumrunner and Kitty’s former lover; Francis, a former hippie and general peacemaker; Melody, a mentally-unbalanced 50s housewife; and Hector, a former carnival artist, the careful balance they’ve been keeping for years is about to be upset. All of them, and Chloe, are about to get the answer they’ve been looking for years: why have they been brought to the Wasteland in the first place? And will it be possible for them to get back home?
