"The Devil's Music" is the first story in her Raised in Hell series from Trestle Press.
Here we meet Sadie, the shape-shifting daughter of the Devil, who's hanging out at a Mississippi Delta blues club in the 1930s. Many fine musicians have sold their souls to her in exchange for their talents. Eventually they have to pay up to Sadie -- whether they like it or not.
But Madeleine takes this idea in a fresh direction -- maybe hell isn't so bad... In fact, maybe it's pretty cool and better than the alternative. This is an imaginative story with a very rich setting. Highly recommended.
Also, Madeleine has a scorcher over at Powder Burn Flash with "Crazy Town." It's a classic turn-the-tables-on-the-bullies story, but done with style, originality, and a sharp eye for detail.
