The Story So Far[]

Marie Lambeau always had a voice to die for. People called her "the Smoky Velvet." They said she was born to sing jazz, that she had the magic touch—and maybe they were right.

Once, Marie heard of a man who could make the dead dance when he played his trumpet. She never could do that—her voice wasn't magic that way. But when people hear it, they like it, and they like her, and that suits her just fine.

Marie's grande-mere just passed away. Why the old dame moved from New Orleans to Arkham, Marie never knew. Anyway, she never paid much attention to the stories people told about the old woman. She just figured they were jealous. But now, she's sitting in Ma's Boarding House holding her grandmother's knife, and she can hear it singing with a voice like smoky velvet...[1]

Down in New Orleans, folks know that Marie Lambeau's voice contains a lagniappe, or a little something extra. Her beautiful skill has gained her entrance to the most exclusive events all over the world, and no one who hears her sing can help but fall under her spell. What the many fans of Marie Lambeau do not realize is that she learned more than folk songs from her grand-mère in the bayou. Now Marie is using all of the secrets she has learned to push back against the chaos threatening Arkham. And she will always have the help of her fans at the Nightingale.[2]

Marie Lambeau always had a voice to die for. People called her "the Smoky Velvet." They said she was born to sing jazz, that she had the magic touch — and maybe they were right. After all, the songs she heard in her dreams ever since her Grand-Mère passed away were like nothing she'd ever heard before. The vocals sounded like no language spoken on Earth, the notes twisted and warped. Why her Grand-Mère had moved from New Orleans to Arkham, Marie would never know. People used to call her Grand-Mère a witch. Maybe there's more than just jazz in Marie's blood, after all...[3]
