Publisher's Summary

Fellow orphans, amateur vigilantes, and members of the Santitos, Loup Garron-the fugitive daughter of a genetically engineered "wolf-man"-and Pilar Ecchevarria spent their entire lives under military occupation in a cordoned off Texas no-man's-land that used to be called Santa Olivia, now known as Outpost 12. 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 Garza, Loup's former sparring partner and reprobrate surrogate brother, has escaped from Outpost 12 and is testifying on behalf of its forgotten citizens-at least until he disappears from protective custody. Driven by a sense of honor, Loup vows to rescue Miguel, even though venturing into the U.S. could mean losing her liberty. Driven by love and loyalty, Pilar promises to help her.

LOVED IT!

Can I give this book ten stars? Is it possible to love a second book in a series more than the first? I wish I could, and I do.

The depth of character, plot and world building is absolutely amazing! Jacqueline Carey writes in poetry it seems. Not in a dull, you have to figure it out as you go into tangled webs-way, but flowing and vivid. It is like you have put on Carey glasses and see a world you might not have seen before.

I didn't cry at the end of this book. But I am sad. I cannot see how there could be a sequel. I have never seen so many threads brought to a more satisfying end. Except one. Robe. I wanted more. My problem is that I miss the characters so much and I know outside of reading the books again, I just wont have opportunity to enjoy them again. But Jacqueline Carey is a genius, so maybe she can pull more out of these characters. I hope so.

Now for a word for the narrator, Susan Ericksen. Wow! I am sure the book was marvelous without Ms. Erickson's voice but to listen to her while reading Jacqueline's book was like "cake AND ice cream." A couple of the characters have similar backgrounds yet Susan managed to keep their accents separate and individual. Since they are of Latino descent I was worried that as they went to European countries and then to Australia and Japan that there would be some dull or unbelievable accents. No. She carried all characters and accents off with a flair. I look forward to more of her narrations.

I highly recommend the series and/or the audio of Santa Olivia and the sequel Saints Astray to Everyone!

Heartwarming!

This book was the perfect sequel to the first. All the loose ends were tied up and the ending was very moving.

We get to see the relationship between Loup and Pilar develop into practically marriage. And there is no chance of anything ever splitting them up again.

I really loved this series, It will always be one of my favorites. Part of me wants more books but I don't think that anything more needs to be told about these characters except possibly Loup kicking a ton more ass.

5* from me!
Jacqueline Carey you did an extraordinary job!

Get through all the steam and it's great

This book really took me out of my comfort zone. The more I listened the more I needed to hear. I like the main characters balance with each other. One engineered to be better but somehow more dependent on others because of it. I will say some of the explicit implications get repetitive but somehow never boring

Boring life story

I kept thinking something was going to happen, nothing did. It's great that they love each other but after that what, they have sex. Their relationship was alot of them hanging out then having sex.

Toto, we aren't In Terre d' Ange anymore.

This book should be classified as a "lesbian romance" novel. I struggled to finish it.

Too much relationship.

I've read a ton of Jacqueline Carey, and I usually love her. This was my least favorite. The main relationship was so obnoxious. I don't mind a lot of romantic love being in my novels, I am reading Carey, after all. However, Pilar and Loup's relationship dominated this book so much but there was basically no conflict at all. It is boring to read about how much characters love each other. I would have preferred a separation, or just not had so much information about their baby talk in the evenings. It didn't add anything to the story and was boring.

Phenomenal!!!!

What did you love best about Saints Astray?

This was a very pleasant surprise. I chose to take a chance on this series mostly because of the narrator. But I was wowed by the characters and story as well. After I finished listening to both books, I started it all over again. Honestly I am tempted to listen a third time. I almost wish a book three would be written. I recommend this book series to everyone. Its a love story, an action book, and fantasy. Its great.

Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

Loup Garran
