The Mutated Old West in the Fantasy, The Arrivals

She is in shock, though there are people waiting to help her when she arrives.

There are also other people that have arrived to the Wasteland, but unfortunately there is a war and new arrivals must pick their side.

Greed and power are behind the war as Ajani, Jack and Kitty’s arch rival, tries to take control over more of the Wasteland for his own personal gain.

Jack and Kitty battle Ajani for followers, and Chloe must adapt and find her place in The Arrivals by Melissa Marr.
