    Little red twisted

    I read this book in one day (lazy Sunday). The little Red Riding Hood is two sisters trained hunters, and they walk the dark path wearing red hoods to bait wolves to their deaths.
    The story is so well written that is utterly believable, I could picture every scene in my mind. Relatable characters that grow and change trough out the book are not some dimwitted teenage girls gushing over a hottie. A little predictable and in one part "corny" (reason for 4 stars) but overall a good read. Little action, romance, horror, and legend re-told make a good read.

    Excellent writing, not my fav romance

    I've been looking foward to Sisters Red for a long time. I loved author Jackson Pearce's debut novel As You Wish, and the synopsis of this new book sounded great: a fractured modern fairytale where two sisters fight monsters, but one of them wants something more from her life. As a child, Scarlett March lost an eye to a Fenris (werewolf) while she was defending her sister Rosie. Flash forward to the future, and Scarlett's just a tad too obsessing with offing the Fenris, and Rosie's daydreaming about romance and a life that doesn't revolve around slaughtering monsters.

    I'm sure Pearce fans won't be disappointed with the writing, which is crisp and compelling--my heart jumped into my throat in the prologue, because of all the tension and scariness. I think my problem with the story is, I'm a Scarlett fan, and the book is half Rosie's. Now Scarlett's a little manic and over-dedicated, but she's my kind of gal; when she sees evil, she fights it. Rosie's all right, but I disagree with her wanting to get away from the hunter lifestyle. Yes, it's tough and miserable, but if you know that there are supernatural serial killers literally eating young girls, and you're capable of stopping them, is it really all right for you to go off and pursue a happy white picket fence kind of life? This is the reason I couldn't really get into Silas and Rosie's romance, though it was written well.

    The monsters are tremendous. The Fenris are all males, all belonging to packs with object names--Coin, Bell, Arrow--and they all have their pack marks tatooed on their wrists. And in this particular book, I think it's nice that they're not redeemable. They aren't misunderstood. The Fenris eat people and they have no souls; when you kill them, they disappear in a puff of black smoke.

    So anyhoo, it's a good book that most YA readers will like. I'm just picky about my heroines. I like the stories where the MC gets to fall in love and kill monsters. We can have our cake and slay it, too.
