Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Carey follows 2009’s Santa Olivia with another lively tale of postpandemic America. Loup Garron is a wild young woman with a mean right hook and modified genes, courtesy of her AWOL supersoldier father. She and her girlfriend, Pilar Ecchevarria, have finally escaped from the walled village where they grew up, but life’s still dangerous when you’re not technically human and thus lack human rights. Loup and Pilar work as bodyguards in exchange for decent paychecks and false identities. They’re safe but sidelined with no real way to help Loup’s fellow GMPs or their friends back home. When a famous rock band uses Loup as part of its image, she sees a chance to swing popular opinion to her side and make a stand for her people. Loup and Pilar’s sweet, genuine relationship will draw in new readers and satisfy returning fans. (Nov.)
