Sequels and Subversive Sexuality: Malinda Lo Interviews Jacqueline Carey about Saints Astray

Jacqueline Carey is best known for her epic fantasy Kushiel’s Legacy series, but in 2009 she branched out into science fiction with Santa Olivia, a gritty novel about Loup Garron, the daughter of a genetically modified man growing up in a military outpost on the border between the United States and Mexico. This month, Saints Astray, a sequel to Santa Olivia, hits bookstores and picks up the story only minutes later, as Loup and her girlfriend, Pilar, are fleeing the outpost. I asked Jacqueline about her goals for the sequel and her thoughts on one of Loup’s defining characteristics: the fact that she cannot feel fear.
