Publisher Description

Post-apocalyptic scifi meets urban fantasy in Jacqueline Carey's sequel to Santa Olivia as two girls fight to stay together and change the world.

After their escape from military custody, Loup Garron and her girlfriend Pilar have a chance to reinvent their lives thousands of miles away from the forgotten and disenfranchised Texas border town and military zone of Santa Olivia.

Thanks to Loup's genetically engineered gifts of strength, speed, and an innate fearlessness, as well as Pilar's unexpected skill with a pistol, they find new careers as high-priced bodyguards for a world famous British rock band. Back in the States, an investigation into the existence of Santa Olivia, also known as Outpost 12, begins in Washington, D.C. When the key witness with evidence to expose the military cover-up, their old comrade Miguel, vanishes, the case seems lost.

The abandoned citizens of Santa Olivia need a champion, a voice raised on their behalf, which pushes Loup and Pilar into a hard choice. If Loup returns to U.S. soil, she'll be an outlaw. If she's caught, she'll be taken into custody again; and this time, there may be no escape. But if she and Pilar don't fight for the freedom of those they left behind, no one will.

Devoured Them Both

I read both the books in just two days. I devoured them and almost wish I had made them last a little longer. I don't really want to let the characters go but I couldn't put the books down. The romance was totally absorbing. I can't believe I put off reading these. Reading the descriptions I thought it sort of sounded cheesy but it totally wasn't. I don't know why not because the plot is certainly fantastic but it feels real when you are reading it and almost going through it with them. Only a really amazing writing could pull off this kind of action with deeper meaning and hot sexy love scenes all together and get it all just perfectly. I guess I would definitely be one of the one in a hundred.
