Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce (5)


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.

I purchased this book because: Just look at the cover !!!!! and the story line sounded great !!

Opening Lines: A Fairy Tale, Seven Years Ago ... Strangers never walk down this road, the sisters though in unison as the man trudged towards them. Certainly not strangers in business suits - there was just no reason for them to be out here in the middle of nowhere.

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end .... Just have to wait now for the 2 companion books that go with this series .... grrrrr .....

The story has a little bit of the Red Riding Hood Twist on it which is just great. Except it is set in modern times ... It did make me what to go out and buy myself a lovely red Cape .. There seems to be alot of books out there at the moment that are putting their own twist on Fairy Tales and I am loving it ....

Each Chapter tells the story from one of the two sisters point of view ..... Scarlett who is the strong and fiercely determined fighter and so not afraid of the big bad wolf ... And Rosie the younger sister who is struggling to find her path in life ...... And of course you gotta have some hunky boy action which is where Silas comes into play :) ....

Lovin the werewolves and there are great action scenes throughout the novel .......

Some of my favourite quotes are: 'By jumping on me? Your apology sucks.' Pg 39

'So, Schatzi, who made the wiser choice? John, who refuse to believe in the sunshine because it was strange and new, or Mary, who let her eyes get used to the light?' Pg 42

'The microfilm room is freezing, as though book lovers don't heat this space out of loyalty to real pages.' Pg 151

I am really excited to see what the next two books are going to be like and was really impressed with this one :) ........ And it did me think .... Do we actually really live our lives the way we want or do we live our lives to please other people? ......

So bring on the werewolves because I know that the Girls can handle themselves ...... This book is universal because boys and girls can read it ...... The girls for the romance and the boys for the action scenes ...

There are going to be two companion books to this novel .... SWEETLY a modernization of Hansel and Gretel and FATHOMLESS a modernization of The Little Mermaid ... cannot wait ...

I rate this book 5 *****

Here is a wee taste of the book .... Enjoy :)
