Santa Olivia

by Jacqueline Carey

Review

Santa Olivia

Somewhat like a cross between Zorro and Dark Angel with quite a bit of boxing thrown in, this book is most notable for the lack of a clearly defined bad guy. Even the worst people in the book are human, driven by circumstances and errors in judgement. The setting is compelling and drives the characters’ actions with a feel much like the unfolding of events in Yojimbo with a more sympathetic cast.

Rating: ★★★½☆
