I loved Santa Olivia so much that I promptly put in an interlibrary loan request for the sequel, Saints Astray. Again, I don't have a lot to say about it. If you liked Santa Olivia, you'll probably also like Saints Astray. If you didn't read Santa Olivia, Saints Astray might stand alone, but you'll miss the backstory. The only real problem with Saints Astray is that it's a little more loosely edited than Santa Olivia. At times it seems to meander - it feels like Carey got caught up in the fun part of writing the Loup and Pilar relationship and adventures without thinking about the plot - although it does more or less all come back together at the end. There are also several places where we see only Loup's side of phone conversations and then see her relay them to Pilar, but Loup is our pov character, and if I'd been Carey's editor, I would have made her either show both sides of the conversation and narrate over telling Pilar about it or narrate over the conversation and show the conversation with Pilar. Despite all of that, I did really like the book. There's a lot of action, a lot of (nonexplicit) sex, and I did, in the end, like the way she wrapped up all of the storylines into an ending.
