Review: Sisters Red By Jackson Pearce

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?
My Take:
This was an amazing telling of a fairy tale we all know and love. Sisters Red was able to go beyond the 'what big eyes you' quote and tell the story of how two sisters how believe they share something more than what is on the outside but what relies on the inside. Jackson grabbed my attention first with the way she was able to bring to life the tale of little red riding hood and mask into something so compelling. I loved every page of this book and while reading I couldn't help but realize that my guesses were coming true I fell in love with whole number concept in the story and how it related to every little clue given to you from the beginning. This was one of those books that if you didn't pay attention at the beginning your guess would be wrong has to how the sisters are searching for. This tale follows Scarlett and Rosie March and your inside both of them feeling what they feel in the moment they give one moment i liked was the whole life drawing because it actually happened to me when I took my first life drawing class. I don't know how but i felt this link to the book because the last name is the month i was born the numbers told is my favorite number and the number I was born on. After finally finishing I am now glad for the journey the two sisters took along with me in a way, is allowing me to finally say I finished and I can't wait to read something else by the wonderful and talented Jackson Pearce.

p.s. if she keeps writing them I'll keep on reading them might take me along time to get to them but I'll get to them.

5/5 Stars
