I recently got my paws on an advance copy of The Arrivals by Melissa Marr, so I thought I would post a review. The basic premise is that people from different times in history get transported to a new world where deaths are usually a temporary thing. The story follows a small resistance group fighting the power of a man who is steadily gains control over this new world as well as the “arrivals” from other times. I know this blog focuses on “myth meets modern”, but this was more of a modern (along with western, gangster, and all the other genres that the resistance band represented) gets thrown into myth. Its not a genre I normally read, but I found the touches from different timeperiods interesting, particularly when it came to the explanation of the villain’s motives.
