Black Friday Contest: Saints Astray by Jacqueline Carey

Black FridayWhat is a Black Friday without a few gifts and surprises? Jacqueline Carey wanted to be here, but due to deadlines (and we totally want more stories, right?), she was unable to participate. However, she’s sent along this fabulous beauty instead: Saints Astray.

JCarey-Saints AstrayFellow 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.

We are giving away an ARC of Saints Astray and I know you want it. *grin*

About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. I would get the renegade a perfect alibi so they won’t know exactly where she was – and a digital camera to take pictures of what they don’t want you to see! :-)

    I loved Santa Olivia so I’m really excited about Saints Astray!! :-)

  2. The perfect gift for a renegade going where she’s not supposed to be is an assortment of great disguises.

    This sounds like a fantastic book and I’m going to add it to my wish list.

  3. I loved the first book and I would totally gift that renegade a katana, because it seems all fierce ladies who are renegades have one.
    That or some kick arse boots since they made be doing a lot of kick arsery.

  4. I would give her a Mary Poppins esque bag where she could magically store all of her weapons and such and have it weigh almost nothing but hold everything.
    This looks like a fabulous sequel, I just ordered the first book because I loved the sound of it. Cannot wait to start reading it.

  5. I think the standard leather outfit with the black leather trench that can hide all the tools of the trade she will need.

  6. a mirror that shows where she wants to be!! or something like the marauders map from harry potter.. shows her where people are near her

  7. I would give her a bag that compresses the contents, allowing her to carry lots of things, and a book listing the various dangers she might come across. Also a water bottle- always important.

  8. I’d give her a heart to heart talk before she left. I’f that didn’t change her mind, I’d also give her a cell phone so that she could call when she realized her mistake and some cash to help her get by.Thank you for the giveaway! Seasons Greetings! :D

  9. Oh I have no idea, maybe some extra weapons, or something really cute and girly to totally mess with their badass image, like something pink and frilly. Thanks!

  10. I’d make sure she had one of those guns that shoots a grappling hook, plus an attachment that would let her zip down the line should she need to make a fast get-away.
