Saints astray: Santa Olivia Series, Book 2
Fellow orphans, amateur vigilantes and members of the Santitos, the Little Saints of Santa Olivia, Loup Garron and Pilar Ecchevarria spent their entire lives under military occupation in a cordon of no-man's-land that used to be Texas; in an isolated town called Outpost 12, once 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 Garza, 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, a victim of his own impetuousness. Driven by a sense of honour, Loup vows to rescue Miguel, even though venturing into the US, where GMOs are considered government property, could mean losing her liberty. Driven by love and loyalty, Pilar promises to help her. It will take a daring and absurd caper to extricate Miguel from the mess he's created; and an even greater risk to make their actions count, to shed light on the plight of the forgotten citizens of Santa Olivia. But once again, Loup is prepared to risk everything... and this time, she has help.

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.
