Have you ever scanned the shelves at a book store, or pages of a book website and been instantly drawn to a particular book? You read the book description and think “damn, I have GOT to buy this book!” That’s what happened when I came across Jackson Pearce’s novel Sisters Red.
“For Scarlett and Rosie March, the world is not what it seems. Werewolves, called Fenris, live among them in the form of good-looking men who prey on pretty young girls. When a Fenris attacked the March girls, it killed their grandmother and left them emotionally and, for Scarlett, physically scarred. Since then, they have taken action and revenge. With the help of a friend, Silas, the girls are on a mission—to destroy as many Fenris as they can. This goal becomes more complicated when they try to unravel the mystery behind the pack and prevent the next “Potential” from transforming fully into a soulless, evil monster. Pearce is on the mark with this modern-day retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Told by the sisters in alternating chapters, this well-written, high-action adventure grabs readers and never lets go. Rosie and Scarlett are true heroines; smart, tough, and determined, but their special bond is put to test when Rosie and Silas’s relationship becomes more than just friendship. A satisfying read with a fantastic cover.”
The more I read and learned about Sisters Red, the more I wanted to head over to the book store and pick it up. I was surprised to find not one genuinely bad review on it, which is a big deal considering how many picky readers are out there (myself included).
It has, ferocious and deadly werewolves, action, romance and more – the best kind of book in my opinion.
