Editorial Reviews

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. Needless to say, she had me at "putrefaction." In the coming years, writing courses will use Salvaged in the lessons covering "how to immediately and completely hook a reader from chapter one." You never thought you could care this much about cleaning. Rosalyn Devar may not be the space janitor we deserve, but she's the one we need. 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. And she doesn't stop there, while a lesser writer might have been satisfied to just give you a tale of madness amongst alien horrors Roux uses that as the skeleton around which she frames a deeper internal story about the ongoing legacy of trauma, assault and invasion. Truly remarkable and unsettling in the best of ways. Jordan Shively, host of the podcast CARING INTO THE VOID
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
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
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 
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.
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
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
