Madeleine Roux is the author of the adult sci-fi thriller SALVAGED (Ace Books). Set in deep space, SALVAGED follows Rosalyn Devar, a bioengineer from an influential family who has fled past traumas for the unglamorous life of a "space janitor". When catastrophic failures leave valuable ships floating in the void full of dead crew, Rosalyn and her fellow salvagers are sent out to clean up the human remains and send the ships home. Her latest assignment delivers her to the Brigantine, a research vessel gone dark. But, once aboard, Rosalyn discovers that the crew are still quite alive. But, with gaping wounds, glowing blue eyes, and a parasitic hive-mind wrestling for control of their identities, they are no longer precisely human. What follows is a desperate fight to keep the parasite from dominating humanity itself, as Rosalyn seeks allies among the infected, while struggling with her own inner demons. Madeleine's previous work includes the popular YA horror series ASYLUM and HOUSE OF FURIES.
