Praise for Salvaged

Salvaged scared the hell out of me, and I write horror for a living! Madeleine Roux conjures real darkness with a brilliant novel that any fan of ALIEN will simply devour. Brava!”–Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-Wars and Rage

“Elegant and inevitable, this is the prose equivalent of playing a survival horror game.  Each piece feeds perfectly into the next.  Beautifully written.”—Seanan McGuire, New York Times Bestselling author of Middlegame
“Madeleine Roux’s Salvaged is a breathless, claustrophobic twist on the SF thriller, full of deep space dread, conspiracies, and malevolent alien spores, with a woman at the center whose courage was forged in all too human trauma. This is the ALIEN we need right now.”—Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat and The Pandora Room

Salvaged is riveting and brutal, a study in scars. The masterful writing and bittersweet beauty of these characters will haunt you long after you finish reading.” –Ann Aguirre, New York Times bestselling author

“ALIEN meets THE EXPANSE in this nonstop thrill ride. Rosalyn is a reluctant heroine on the run from her past; trapped on a ship with a terrifying alien presence, her resourcefulness and courage lend this unconventional space opera depth and heart.”–Michelle Gagnon, author of Unearthly Things

“Roux’s Salvaged is a tale of creeping horror and daring love, heavy with the weight of loss and trauma. Spooky fungus in space, devastatingly intimate hive minds, terrifying resource management, and shockingly sweet romance combine in this love letter to redemption and recovery (and mushrooms).”—Caitlin Starling, author of The Luminous Dead 

“Roux delivers a feminist SciFi with plot twists, gut-punches, and a female lead with the strength of resilience.”—Mindy McGinnis, Edgar-Award winning author of Heroine

“Part science fiction, part horror, part suspense, Salvaged is all awesome.”–Geeks of Doom

“The rich description dumps you right into the world of Salvaged and won’t let you go. Roux engages all senses; this is sometimes a good thing, sometimes bad, always brilliant. . . . I loved it! —Mur Lafferty, award-winning author of Six Wakes

“From its first searingly brutal line Madeleine Roux seizes the reader by their space helmet and drags them screaming and flailing up into the air ducts of this deeply engaging story of deep space horror. . . . Truly remarkable and unsettling in the best of ways.”– Jordan Shively, host of the podcast CARING INTO THE VOID

“This entertaining, deeply disturbing, and clever story hits all the right notes for those who like a little horror with their SF.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[A] solid piece of survival horror in space. The tension and desperation of the situation meshes perfectly with the characters’ development as they struggle to stay themselves and survive.”–Booklist

“Madeleine Roux’s Salvaged is the fantastic sci-fi “Beauty & the Beast” story you’ve always needed in your life.”–Peter Clines, author of The Fold
