Saints Astray

By Jacqueline Carey (Trade Paperback, 2011)
Fellow orphans, amateur vigilantes, and members of the Santitos, Loup Garron-the fugitive daughter of a genetically engineered "wolf man"-and Pilar Ecchevarria grew up in the military zone of Outpost 12, formerly known as Santa Olivia. But now they're free, and they want to help the rest of the Santitos escape. During a series of escapades, they discover that Miguel, Loup's former sparring partner and reprobate surrogate brother, has escaped from Outpost 12 and is testifying on behalf of its forgotten citizens-at least until he disappears from protective custody. Honor drives Loup to rescue Miguel, even though entering the U.S could mean losing her liberty. Pilar vows to help her.

It will take a daring and absurd caper to extricate Miguel from the mess he's created but Loup is prepared to risk everything... and this time she has help.

  • "Carey follows 2009's Santa Olivia with another lively tale of postpandemic America...Loup and Pilar's sweet, genuine relationship will draw in new readers and satisfy returning fans." (Publisher's Weekly).

  • "Santa Olivia draws you in, compels you to enter its well-built world, daring you not to turn away as you are captivated by every single page.  A fabulous read into the paranormal as only Carey can deliver!"  (LA Banks, author of The Vampire Huntress Legends Series).

  • "Jacqueline Carey has created a postmodern fable of enormous scope and force.  Santa Olivia is at once a cautionary tale of people caught in a web of lies and creeping terror, and a love song to the beauty and power of being different.  At the novel's heart the the kind of grace Carey is known for: an illumination of the strength that lies hidden inside all of us." (Eric Van Lustbader, bestselling author of The Bourne Sanction ).

  • Santa Olivia is a terrific book that is both a romantic romp -- and a deep piece of literature that left me breathless and cheering.  Kudos to Ms Carey for once again turning genre on it's ear in a most enjoyable fashion. (Patricia Briggs #1 New York Times bestselling author).

  • "Carey tells a story that is by turns gut-wrenching and exhilarating...Santa Olivia is ultimately a story of love, friendship, hope and acceptance in a disenfranchised and forgotten world...Anyone who like a well-told story driven by intensely realistic characters will find time spent with Santa Olivia time well spent. (Miami Herald).
