Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce - Review

Scarlet and Rosie March are different from other girls. They know that werewolves (or Fenris) exist. They know that werewolves (or Fenris) exist. They know this because a werewolf killed their grandmother and attacked Scarlet as she shielded her sister, taking an eye and leaving her scarred. The girls spend their lives hunting the Fenris with their friend Silas (a woodman of course), killing as many as they can to avenge their grandmother and to save young girls from attack. But to find the alpha they need to find the “potential” and it’s here that the plot thickens, especially as Rosie and Silas start to fall in love.

Sisters Red is told from each sister’s perspective so we see all sides of their struggle, their love for each other, their fights, and the blossoming romance. This is at once an all action gory tale of tough girls and bloody battles, and yet it’s also a tale of sisterly bonds, friendship, and first love. It’s not your mother’s Little Red Riding Hood but if you like your fairy tales updated and twisted then this is the book for you.

Thanks for the review! I've been eyeballing this book since earlier this year.

I do like a good twisted fairy tale.
