    1. My life may end up being long, long and still not long enough or too short the way that I can waste hours playing Angry Birds and still feel it wasn't enough time to try to beat level 3.15. If I persist in reading Saints Astray it will be too long no matter the outcome. I lose no matter what. Sooooo boring. My senses are too dull to come up with more descriptions of how boring. I have butter knives sharper than this! Okay, I lied but see (butter melts in my mouth!)? What I came up with wasn't go [...]

    2. The further I got into this the less I liked it. Volume 1 had some interesting concepts and characters and conflicts. This one makes Danielle Steel seem like Jorge Luis Borges. Perhaps someone who reads Harlequins can tell us how close this is to one of theirs. I suppose I should reflect the book by having 20% of this review be "ooh baby I can't wait to ahh!" I have problem with having such scenes in the book, but there are way too many, and they're sickly sweet. Loup shows flickers of being int [...]

    3. "Astray" is the operative word here. Loup Garron is back, but for most of this book she lacks any direction. There's lots going on here, but it's not going anywhere. Having escaped from Gitmo, I mean Outpost, Loup and Pilar have some fun on the beach in Mexico, get recruited for bodyguard training and pack off to Scotland. Then do security for a fashion designer, for a mafia family in Sicily, for the bratty daughter of a Swiss banker in Geneva, and for a Pop band in Australia and Japan. There's [...]

    4. Sweet, fun, action-y teenage wish-fulfillment fantasy with a social justice edge. Slow build, fun payoff, would be great beach reading. This would be great young adult fiction, but for all the swearing and sex. Which is to say it is great young adult fiction, but I don't know that teachers and librarians should go about handing it out that way. I'd recommend it for both boys and girls old enough to appreciate a sensual love story and a principled struggle. Carey enjoys spoiling the characters sh [...]

    5. I was really looking forward to this book. I loved Santa Olivia; it was so much fun seeing Carey let loose into a modern world, the characters were entertaining and lovable, the tiny, locked-in community of Outpost was interesting and beautifully drawn. So where the hell did this one go wrong?This sequel is so bad, I almost did myself an ocular mischief thanks to the amount of eye rolling that occurred as I was reading it. Lou and Pilar skip through a series of wish-fulfilling events where they [...]

    6. Huh. That wasally kinda goofy. The big "obstacles" were too easily overcome, I think - there's no real sense of menace (or, oddly for how often they talk about/physically demonstrate it, a sense of love between Pilar and Loup). The emotions in the book came off kind of forced and cutesy.It reads, as a few of the other reviewers have said, much like stilted YA (with much cussing and sex) or like fanfic, complete with descriptions of shopping trips and clothes (Have you ever noticed how often char [...]

    7. Regretably, read like authorial wish fufillment.The only vaguely positive thing I can say about the book was there were 2 female main characters and it attempted to be positive about same sex relationships.The somewhat gritty dystopian feel of the original book was completely lost as the 2 leads, went on a shopping spree, went to a Mexican resort, "trained" in becoming secret agents, "guarded" a fashion designer, and culminated with guarding a "superstar pop band" who are becoming edgy. Yawn. Th [...]

    8. What a disappointment! I really wanted to like this book but it was not nearly as interesting as the first one (Santa Olivia). I've read Jacqueline Carey quite a bit and so far this is her cheesiest, least convincing book. It is a light read, and it does feature queer women of color, but that's about all I can say for it. However the relationship between the women featured a lot of unnecessary-seeming reassurances that they weren't jealous of each other, and a lot of "I love you baby" type lines [...]

    9. OMG! This was soooooooo good! I think I would come back later on with more sensible thoughts because I simply can't put into words all my feelings for this book, but I am trying to write something anyway. This book was really different from the first one and it wasn't at all as I was expecting it. It was strange at some points because while I was reading I was enjoying it immensely, but then you have to close the book (as much as we love to read and do nothing else, there is always the life that [...]

    10. The conclusion to the charming but limited Santa Olivia takes the duology one step higher because it addresses the main niggles I had with the first volume (limited worldbuilding and way too much boxing); will add a full FBC Rv soon and talk more but a very good book from all points of view this timeThe whole world is the canvas and Loup kicks butt all waysFull FBC Rv:INTRODUCTION: "Fellow orphans, amateur vigilantes, and members of the Santitos, Loup Garron-the fugitive daughter of a geneticall [...]

    11. I find myself wanting to give Saints Astray two different ratings: one for how happy I am for its heroines, Loup Garron and Pilar Ecchevarria, and the other for how well Saints Astray works as a novel. I love the characters and am glad their lives have become easier since the events of Santa Olivia, but the result is a book that does not have enough tension or conflict.Loup and Pilar have escaped Outpost and travel to Mexico, where they enjoy a brief idyll in the company of Loup’s relatives on [...]

    12. I took a long time with this one, because honestly, I was a little bit bored with it. I really enjoyed Santa Olivia, but with this one, there hardly seemed to be any conflict at all. Pilar and Loup got along wonderfully, absolutely, completely over the conflict they had in the previous book, completely madly in love. I couldn't have been more bored with the romance in this one, and Jacqueline Carey usually tells a fantastic love story. I think back to Phedre and Joscelin, Imriel and Sidonie, Moi [...]

    13. tinyurl/bkolh3bBloody hell. I really only got how awful this was until halfway through, by which point I figured I might as well take it to its end. If only because it's super quick read and to see the characters go back to Outpost again. Yea, sorry if I ruined that for you, but nah. I'm not. Don't pick this up.The first book is really pretty good- it has such an interesting premise and Carey takes it in weird directions. This follow-up is the result of Carey's agent saying "all that sexy lesbia [...]

    14. Saints Astray is a fun follow-up to Santa Olivia, following Pilar and Loup as they find a way for themselves in the wider world outside their cordoned off district. Refreshingly, after the ups and downs of their relationship in Santa Olivia, the two are devoted to each other and while they do experience moments of doubt, these are quickly put to rest. Maybe the one thing that did bother me was how many people around Loup turned out to be ‘one in a hundred’s — people attracted to her despit [...]

    15. As indicated by my three stars the book was fine, neither spectacular nor boring. If I had read this book without having read Santa Olivia I would have had no connection with, nor commitment to the characters in the story.On its own this book is a nice light read with a bit of action, a bit of romance, and a bit of state of the world commentary. All these things make the book an enjoyable light read.Having read Santa Olivia and become so intimately connected to Loup Garron and the intense depth [...]

    16. That's it. I'm abandoning this, even though my love forSanta Oliviameant I soldiered past my usual 100-page trial period cutoff. GOD. This book just sucks. There is NO plot tension other than their ridiculously written cliche dyke drama. It reads like a bad beach novel. Every sentence Pilar says to Loup ends in "baby," and all they're doing even halfway through the book is security detail for spoiled celebrities. UGH. Oh, and then they "smolder" in various lavish hotel beds across the globe. Aft [...]

    17. This sequel was good but definitely not as good as it's predecessor. It lagged in some places and I got a bit tired of Loup and Pilar's relationship by the end as it mostly consisted of sex and little else. I wish that there had been a little more thought put into the story line as everything seemed to happen at the end of the story. There were days when I was in the middle of reading this book that I didn't pick it up at all because it just wasn't holding my interest. With that said, I still th [...]

    18. If I could give this book less than zero I would. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of Ms. Carey, but this book just fell flat. Following the first installment 'Santa Olivia' which was quite interesting and innovative, this book just didn't meet the mark. I was left feeling as if she were trying to write to a younger audience and failing all the way. The kissy face pubescent romance was a sickening distraction and there was no intrigue to speak of. Epic Fail.

    19. I loved the first book and that's why I wanted to read this book. I am SO disappointed in this book, though!There are a lot of dialogues in the book and they all feel either forced or macho like. The plot isn't that eventful and I never had this "oh-I-want-to-get-back-to-my-book" feeling. Read the first book (Santa Olivia), but stay away from this one!

    20. I love Jacqueline Carey. I enjoyed this book. I like the characters a lot, I think Ms. Carey does a wonderful job capturing the intelligent yet naive characters of Pilar and Loup. I like the general plot and found it rather touching and positive, I just found it a bit meandering.

    21. Yeah, it wasn't as strong as the first book. And, yeah, the "I love you, baby" stuff gets kinda repetitive and old. Bute on! Such a delicious romp of happy wish fullfilment for our heroines! How can you not love it! That'd be like hating on fuzzy puppies!

    22. 2.5 starsCan you like a story and be disgusted with it at the same time?I think you can.If you haven't read Santa Olivia, book 1 of this duology, then BEWARE: this review is rife with spoilers from the previous book. It basically contains a plot summary that I didn't include in the review (b/c spoilers), to better explain why I was so thoroughly disappointed in this concluding chapter.In Santa Olivia, we meet Loup Garron (heh), the daughter of a 100% normal human and a Genetically Modified Organ [...]

    23. Yo! Howzit goin'?Anyway, I picked this book because it was the sequel to another book I read earlier this lifetime called "Santa Olivia" written by none other than Jacqueline Carey which was an awesome book in my opinion. It gives the reader a point of view of two people that have never seen the outside world and are ready to explore it. If I could I'd give it 3.5 stars.So this book picks up exactly where the first book left off. The two heroines and soul mates Loup Garron and Pilar Ecchavaria ( [...]

    24. Saints Astray by Jacqueline Carey is the follow-up to 2009's Santa Olivia and follows Loup and Pilar as they adjust to life outside Outpost 12. The first place they land after their daring escape is in the backseat of a car for a near cross country drive to meet with representatives of the Mexican Government, a U.S. Senator sympathetic to their plight, and a mysterious third party. While there the girls get treated to a posh (one of Carey's favorite descriptors, apparently) hotel and a major sho [...]

    25. This is the 2nd book in the Santa Olivia series and this book ties up the Santa Olivia series by Carey. It was a very well done book and I enjoyed it a lot. Loup and Pilar have escaped the Outpost and finally get to meet some of Loup’s family on the outside in Mexico. They both get an offer to join an elite bodyguard firm and decide to take the offer. The offer gives them a chance to travel and earn some money. However, when they bodyguard for a band called Kate an opportunity arises for Loup [...]

    26. This is a nosedive after the good entretaining book Santa Olivia 1 is. I really wondered how the author'd carry a second book and it's sad she couldn't provide us with a good story. This book felt like those fanfics you come across about two characters doing something domestic and nothing more. Everything gt solve quite easily and the flaws in the first book persist in this one and feel stronger bc really you cannot skip them when the story alone, is boring. All the characters feel flat, flatter [...]

    27. 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 ther [...]

    28. I didn't enjoy Saints Astray as much as I did Santa Olivia. As a sequel, this novel comes with expectations the first novel was not burdened with and it simply does not live up to mine. That being said, if you take this novel for what it is, a light, somewhat fluffy read, it is not a bad read. This novel is fun in the way a James Bond movie is fun. Not because it is realistic but because it's an entertaining bit of daydreaming. If that is the sort of thing you are looking for, Saints Astray will [...]

    29. The sequel to "Santa Olivia" is just as involved, intense and wonderfully touching as the debut book in the series.Heart warming and yet full of action.An absolute perfect ending to Loup and Pilar's story.
