Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris–the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She’s determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.
Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls’ bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett’s only friend–but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they’ve worked for?
I picked up Sisters Red after seeing a few blogs featuring it. I loved the idea of splitting Little Red Riding Hood into two sisters and seeing her fight back against the big, bad wolf– or, rather, as the paperback edition refers to them: the big, bad werewolf.
Happily, the premise lived up to the hype.
Not only is Sisters Red a gripping mystery in which Scarlett, her sister Rosie, and her hunting partner Silas must discover why and how potential werewolves (or Fenris) are turned, but it is also the story of the relationship between sisters, and a romance that develops slowly but surely.
It’s also about the discovery of personal identity both for Rosie and for Scarlett– after being almost all each other has for so long, they slowly discover what one girl is away from the other.
The story kept me turning pages until the very end.
Rating: 4/5. I really love Jackson Pearce’s work and I bet you will too. Why don’t you enter my GIVEAWAY for a copy of the Sisters Red and find out?
