I read the first one she wrote, can't remember the name, but it was a lot more graphic than I like.  Hmm different strokes for differenct strokes I suppose. Anyway, I think the story was interesting, but all that detail, not so much, I mean for me...  :)

All the graphic images bugged me, but the stories are amazing. (even if I've only read the last three ^^; )

I know Maz has picked up the first book of her Kushiel's series and there is a new book that sets up a new arc this year. But I came across this today which perked my bookpusher senses tingling :D
It sounds similar to the Zodiac series but I think this looks even better!

Quote
Loup Garron was born and raised in Santa Olivia, an isolated, disenfranchised town next to a US military base inside a DMZ buffer zone between Texas and Mexico. A fugitive "Wolf-Man" who had a love affair with a local woman, Loup's father was one of a group of men genetically-manipulated and used by the US government as a weapon. The "Wolf-Men" were engineered to have superhuman strength, speed, sensory capability, stamina, and a total lack of fear, and Loup, named for and sharing her father's wolf-like qualities, is marked as an outsider.

After her mother dies, Loup goes to live among the misfit orphans at the parish church, where they seethe from the injustices visited upon the locals by the soldiers. Eventually, the orphans find an outlet for their frustrations: They form a vigilante group to support Loup Garron who, costumed as their patron saint, Santa Olivia, uses her special abilities to avenge the town.

Aware that she could lose her freedom, and possibly her life, Loup is determined to fight to redress the wrongs her community has suffered. And like the reincarnation of their patron saint, she will bring hope to all of Santa Olivia.

Has anyone read any of the Kushiel's Series. I'm starting on my first book and so far so good. It's just that their very long series each book has about 1000 pages. Well I guess I want be finished with these in a day in a half (LOL) If anyone has read these books I would like to know what you think about them.

I loved the first 3 Kushiels...but she lost me after.  I may go back and try the others again, though.  I do love how her world and its politics.  :3

Has anyone read the first book in her new series? Santa Olivia? I saw it today and saw that someone (who apparently wasn't Patti L.) mentioned it earlier in the thread, but I was wondering if anyone has actually read the book and would like to give his/her opinion? I thought about buying it but then didn't 'cause i don't have a summer job yet. ^^ Should I have?

Edit: sorry Patti
