Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Buy on Amazon
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 fiercely alongside her. Now Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves and finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax– but loving him means betraying her sister and has the potential to destroy all they’ve worked for.
Twenty-five-year-old Jackson Pearce delivers a dark, taut fairy tale with heart-pounding action, fierce sisterly love, and a romance that will leave readers breathless.
Move over, Twilight – Werewolves are back where they are supposed to be with Sisters Red.
I’m an older reader, I remember vampires as scary and werewolves as just plain frightening. I knew before picking up Sisters Red that it would be a story loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood and somewhat expected the wolves to be portrayed as scary – but I didn’t count on downright terrifying. There is no redeeming factor in these wolves – no muscled chest, no forbidden love.. nothing. Just outright fear, cruelty and pain.
So when the book begins violently I got chills and knew I would be in for a treat, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Scarlett and Rosie are Fenris hunters – werewolf hunters. They live in a sleepy town in Georgia in the house of their deceased Grandmother, Oma. Scarlett is scared and battle-worn from a fight as a child with a wolf and Rosie is the protected, beautiful younger sister. But both girls have nerves of steel and a backbone to match. No shrinking, indecisive girls here – Scarlett starts out knowing who she is and what she is supposed to do and Rosie quickly follows (so refreshing in a 16 year old).
I loved this book. I knew opening it up and reading just the first few pages that I would love it. Good, fun read!
